Rainy Days


The past two days have been a down pour in several parts of Texas. I cannot and will not complain. We desperately needed the rain. Hopefully the lake levels have increased, our watering restrictions will be lifted and that the grass is happy again. 

 French Connection Dress c/o SOLD OUT (exact in pear and pink option here) // Banana Republic Rain Boots (option here and here) // Kate Spade Roses Umbrella c/o // DKNY Cross Body c/o (option here and here) // Michael Kors Watch c/o The Jeweler's Wife // Wrenn Jewelry Bangles c/o // T+J Designs Leopard Pony Hair Bangle c/o 

Recovering from a long weekend coupled with dark, drizzly skies, rolling out of bed yesterday morning and getting dressed was tough stuff. I had to muster up all my energy to brave the weather for an appointment. If I had to join the gray and dreary day, I was going to wear nothing less than bright and cheerful attire. Hopefully, my well watered roses growing in the backyard will be as bountiful as my umbrella. I greedily admit, the past two days have been enough. I am ready for clear, sunny skies again.

So cute and vibrant! I'm from the Pacific NW, so I don't mind the rain. It makes everything green and I love the smell of the air afterwards! :)

Those red boots are cool- I thought they were good old wellies but the zipper back makes for a fashionista twist! Love them! #RandomWednesday

Shanna honey you look gorgeous and so girly-pretty in this Red+Pink Ensemble. Your dress, umbrella and especially your wellies are gorgeous.

Would love for you to see how I styled my Sandals and Wedges, today. As always a pleasure linking up.

Kisses to you & your girls from my Vivian & I. <3

Daily Express said...

I'm with Rebecca...send some of that rain out to CA. Drought conditions are terrible here (I'm impressed that your city has lawn watering restrictions...they really need to do that here.) Anyway, back to fashion. Love the bright pink dress to cheer up a rainy day!

I have seen endless Instagrams of rain and rainbows from my Texas friends this week! I'm feeling a little iffy about going back to that next week after so much Californian sun :) But Shanna, you're looking so bright and beautiful in these photos - bet you brought many a smile on this rainy day!
