Raindrops keep falling

I am well aware of the promise that the excessive amount of rain during April is all in preparation for a huge green bounty of new life in May.
But that does not mean that I have to enjoy, or accept the rain right now.
I am allowed to pout, wear jeans three days a week, and make up any excuse possible to go to the movies. Today I saw Source Code, because I like sci-fi things and Jake Gyllenhaal and his unbelievably gorgeous eyes. I'd also like to see Win Win, but that is only playing in the fancy-smanchy arty theaters in the towns slightly more pretentious than mine.

What a cute rain outfit! It was gross out today for sure...I'm thinking of treating myself to a birthday dinner/movie date this Friday and I think Source Code might be getting bumped to the top of the list!

Your shirt has such a cute print, it goes so well with the bright yellow jacket! So cheery together. :D

I love that your raincoat is such a happy color in contrast to the dull gray that a rainy day would be...

bettec said...

Bird print made my day! Did you get it this season?

I also have a yellow trench that's been waiting for spring - scored it on clearance 50% off last fall. Love it on you.

I adore your yellow trench coat. It looks great with the dark denim. I hope that April snowstorms bring the same bounty as April showers as were under a snow storm warning tonight.

I live in the Pacific Northwest, where it rains almost all year round... But that still doesn't mean I have to like it :) I can sympathise completely with your plight, but in spite of the fact that you're wearing jeans (or maybe because of it) you look lovely in these photos. Your yellow trench coat is so joyful!

I tried on that exact raincoat in a beautiful teal- it reminded me of the Wizard of Oz Emerald City costumes- and passed it up! Now seeing how darling it is on you, I wish I'd have gotten it! It's adorable :)

Monique said...

That print is really cute!

Vanessa said...

That canary yellow coat would cheer up any rainy day! It's supposed to snow again here in Michigan this weekend, so I am going to have to bust out the tights one more time. (Hopefully just one more time!)
And, I really want to see Win Win! It's playing at our indie theater starting Friday, and I'm going to have to brave the cooler-than-me crowds to go see it.

I love your necklace! Also, that jacket is too cute! When I was younger (and by younger I mean like 5) I had the most perfect yellow raincoat ever, but as you can imagine... I've grown out of it and have been searching for that perfect replacement ever since!

I love me some red and yellow together! And the birdies on the shirt is adorable! Oh - AND great wide leg jeans.... you just look great - can I say. It was a little too cold for my liking here in the SF Bay Area. I hope you had a great Thursday! Cheers!

Jessi said...

Mrs. J said...

Your trench coat is so beautiful such a perfect shade of yellow it reminds me of the SUN. Overall this outfit is so cute it will bring spring out faster.

Fashion Therapist said...

I really liked Source Code, but then again I really like movies based in Chicago too. :) I also love this outfit. I just thrifted a yellow trench and I'm getting it shortened so I can't wait to get it back. So many outfits running through my head. :)
