Hold out hope

I swear, the sun was really trying to come out today, there was just this bright spot masked by clouds; and while it was still raining during these photos, overall it was a bit warmer and the tiniest bit brighter than yesterday. Maybe tomorrow the rain will stop?
I hope so, because I get so stumped when it comes to getting dressed for the rain. Never mind the fact that I'll be in an office most of the day - what is going on outside directly influences what I feel like wearing inside. Which is most likely pants. What is it about the rain that makes me want to wear jeans?

I know exactly what you mean! Whenever it rains I just want to wear jeans and a big comfy sweater... *sigh*
The outfit I picked out for tomorrow is very fall-y but whatever, haha

When it rains, I just want to wear pajamas and stay home!
But this look is way better!!

Courtney Erin said...

When it rains I tend to live in leggings, over-sized sweaters, and rubber boots...it is decidedly un-inspirational. I bought myself a used bike this weekend and it's killing me that I can't ride it because of this weather.

I've been scared of white jeans forever, but since I started looking at style blogs I think I have to try them! They don't have to look like soccer mom jeans :)

Ugh and when will spring/summer REALLY get here??

hurricanekerrie said...

I have utmost respect for you for wearing white pants on a rainy day! :) I'd probably get some puddle or mud splashes somewhere. But yeah, I agree, I totally watch the news and weather to see what I should be wearing the next day... :)

Alex Elizabeth said...

Glad to see you're also fighting the weather with sandals and white pants! So many people are back to tights again. I refuse, I'll be in bare legs and skirt tomorrow... but maybe I'll wear boots.

DaniellaBella said...

I know what you mean! Rainy days make me want to cuddle up in a blanket and read a book!

Tierney said...

gosh, I love me some crisp white jeans. they just go beautifully with practically anything. THIS OUTFIT NEEDS RED LIPSTICK THOUGH. (although, i think every outfit needs red lipstick.)

also, I like to invest in cute umbrellas. (and, by invest, I mean going to h&m or F21 and dropping ten bucks). when my umbrella is cute, I try to make my whole outfit cute to match.

The Fancy Teacup said...

I just did an outfit post with white jeans, too! Going to post it later this week :) You look beautiful in them, and your plaid blouse is so cute!

much love.

Anne said...

I definitely know the feeling! I always go for jeans when it rains too, I guess to be comfortable? Or because the weather doesn't warrant me dressing up?

I really like this necklace, and it looks great with the navy and white color scheme.

Angel Garcia said...

Nice shirt.. Ha I think everyone feels this way. When it rains, I usually don't even bother to be all done...


Meggstatus said...

Loving the top! I feel like it will never reach summer where I live so I feel your pain. Jeans were the perfect choice.

Eli said...

I have a boot/jacket obsession, so I love a rainy day. Though, I've been thinking about building an ark after the amount of rain we've had lately.

I love your coral tips with this adorable blue and white look.

Eli said...

love this! you would die if you saw how much rain we have in SF right now, it's raining as I type this. I see all these bloggers wearing such cute things AND it's always cold or rainy here....it's making things so difficult, I will live vicariously through you :)

jamie-lee said...

I really love the outfit, the turqoise necklace is the perfect accessory :)

The Blushing Fox said...

Great post dear, i like it so much!!! It looks so so dainty <3



Josie said...

I love your necklace -- it adds such a fun pop of color to the look!

Krystal said...

just don't wear flats in the rain,i so got caught in it on sat. night and had soaked shoes the whole night!

eek said...

I love the contrast of your turquoise necklace against the black and white!

Rainy weather makes me want to wear pants and my patent leather flats :)

silvergirl said...

it has been rainy and cold here
i just want to stay in my warm sweats and long sleeve t

Vanessa said...

Rain is tricky for me, too! Usually I just wear the same stuff as ever, but I just look a little foolish and very unprepared! I love the black and white check with the big bold turquoise!

Rebecca said...

I usually go for pants when it is raining, because they are warm. I like the necklace!

Bre said...

I think when it rains our brains automatically think jeans equal warm. Silly brains who asked you anyway!
I think you look super cute in the rain with your gingham shirt and red nails.
I am wishing you no rain today!

Melanie said...

I really like this outfit! I always have the worst time picking out shoes to wear in the rain. BTW--the last photo is awesome! What kind of lens do you use?

Amber Blue Bird said...

love your white jeans, i need to get myself a pair this spring. I feel the same way about dressing for the rainy weather, I wanna be comfy. At least my bright yellow umbrella looks stylish even if I dont. :)

Mrs. J said...

I barely want to move out of my bed when it rains. So putting on jeans and comfy clothes would be impossible. Lol

Cute outfit, I like your necklace and sandals. The gingham shirt is getting a lot of love like you said before. :)

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

LOOOOOOOE THIS LOOK. The colours are so BAM! POPPIN'. I adore that. And that necklace is WAY TOO COOL. one of my favourite colours, for sure!


Karen said...

Such a cute outfit!! I am loving white jeans this summer - they look and feel so fresh!!



Shea said...

I'm all about the jeans in the rain too...which is supposed to come my way tomorrow. Maybe that means it will be leaving you? Anyway, I love this crisp, classic look, especially with that awesome necklace!

Valerie said...

Love the turquoise of the necklace against the black and white of the shirt!

Amber Blue Bird said...
