Everybody wore lace, I wore it in the rain

Raining again. This prompted me to switch from the outfit I had planned for EBEW that involved a skirt and suede, to the go-to rain outfit of denim.
I now have a new way to keep my camera Desmond dry in the rain - a tupperwear lid. As long as it's not windy, it works like a perfect little umbrella and kept things pretty dry without impairing camera functions the way plastic bags often do.
I really do hate taking photos in the rain, but I will admit, I like what the bright printed umbrella does for the look.
Lace trim
The lace here is actually pretty subtle - just the trim on the sleeves.

And what is this? A new bit of turquoise jewelry to add to my collection? Oh yes, thanks to a giveaway at Organized Mess and Towne and Reese, these cute studded Avery bangles are mine!
filigree pendant
This filigree pendant is actually kind of lacey too...

I love those sleeves! The umbrella pattern is so pretty too! I might have to try the tupperware lid thing sometime, but unfortunately storms have been accompanied by high winds lately.

I love the tupperware lid idea - how clever are you?

I always wondered how you guys take rainy day pictures. I'd love to get one in the rain (in theory. I really actually hate getting any part of my body wet by the rain.) Congrats on your new turquoise addition hehe :) Nice colors, as usual.

Sherry said...

You are so beautiful and the pink of the top and umbrella are gorgeous! The pics you and Desmond take are fantastic. I am showing my hubby so he can improve my pics! Cheers! xo

You did lace in the rain so perfectly! And what a great idea for your "camera umbrella". Your umbrella is adorable!

jamie-lee said...

I hate when the weather deters you from wearing an outfit you had wanted to wear! Looking lovely though I might add x

Madeline Quaint said...

Oh, isn't it just dreadful taking pictures in the rain? Spring in Ohio was just awful and it rained (I'm not kidding) for three weeks straight! I got pretty skilled at taking pictures in the rain, hehe :)

You look so lovely in this coral color, and the turquoise accents are marvelous...

Thanks ever so much for dropping by my blog!

Alexa said...

Great jeans and love the pink sweater!

I had to laugh about the Tupperwear lid, since I am always trying to find was to keep my camera dry. The right umbrella is a nice touch.

Ashley Sloan said...

I love your outfit- how cute are you! :) Have a great day girl!

pink and turquoise? What a bright and happy combo (especially in the rain)!!

Julie said...

Boo to rain! But you still look fabulous! Love those cute turquoise bangles! Very delicate!

Amber Blue Bird said...

cute rain outfit and I that umbrella. I am gonna have to try out that tupperware trick, my lens always gets water on it and makes my pics blurry in the rain.

Kristin said...

Best...umbrella...EVER!

Melina said...

I love that top, it's just gorgeous! I think it's always fun to wear a bright top on a dreary day. Here's hoping the sun comes out soon!

Marissa said...

I don't think I would even mind the rain if I had an umbrella like this. :) And let me know when you find those long lost Greek relatives of yours. You'll have to take me along with you!

I must agree that the umbrella gives it a chic parisien look... but have you thought of taking indoor pics ?
