Lost in the fog

For whatever reason, rainy day outfits always seem to befuddle me. Perhaps it's because I do not like to wear those rain booties (yes, they are ankle height) that I was so enthusiastic about all those years ago and do not presently own any other rain boots.

Perhaps it is just because I hate the rain and wish that  I didn't ever have to go out in it.

Either way, colored denim saves the day again.

I certainly would have never guessed that you don't care for rain days based off of this outfit! I tried on a pair of ankle rainboots and I didn't like how they felt so I don't blame you for not wanting to wear them.

Super, super cute outfit and I seriously adorable that anchor belt!

Ugh, yeah, I can barely get out of bed on a rainy day, much less get dressed. Love your red pants!

Absolutely, colored denim is the answer for just about everything, including fog and rain :)

You truly get the best rainy day outfits. Love the trench and your hair!

I love how you styled your red jeans here! I wish it were warm enough here for wearing my trench coat.

Frannie Pantz said...

Red jeans, chambray and striped scarf for the win! Sorry about the rain! We haven't had rain here for months and months.

I always have trouble picking shoes for rainy day...I have rain boots, but they aren't exactly professional enough for work. Love the thrifted trench! Awesome rain jacket.

Mica said...

Haha, trying to find the perfect pair of rainboots is so difficult. With heels? Silly ones? There are so many options. One day we just both need to invest in some nice Hunter ones in a bright and delicious color.

Rainboots or not, your red pants are quite cheery for the gloomy days we've been seeing. And those stripes! I love those stripes.

Shen Dove said...

This is a great rainy day look, nothing like a bright pair of pants to brighten up a cloudy day.

Franziska said...

you are seriously the best thrifter in the whole wide world (ok, at least my blogging world). I love that trench - and your bun today is beautiful :)

Whitney James said...

It's been foggy here too...ugh! Love the look; especially those thrifted pieces. :-)

eh, better rain than snow, I always say!

Cee said...

I wore an outfit very similar to this the other day, so naturally, I love this ;) Dressing for rain genuinely is hard - getting wet makes you cold, so instinct says dress warmly, but the weather when it rains isn`t actually cold... I used to live in the Pacific Northwest, I could go on on this subject for days!

Katie Q. said...

Ugh, I always have trouble with taking pictures in the rain, I haven't figured out how to focus the camera in it yet. ;P I really love how you mixed the classic trench and denim shirt with the bright red skinnies, it ends up being such a great classic outfit with a little bit of fun!

Carla Florendo said...

love the pants!!

xo, Carla

Nikki | The Ginger Diaries said...

I never know what to wear when it rains either! But this outfit works really well Lydia :) I love the classic pieces you chose. red jeans + denim shirt is always a good idea! Also, THAT BAG! To die for! x

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

I feel your pain! I kind of got used to the rain since were I live about 7-8 months of the year is the rainy season... lol. You look SOO good Lydia. I really truly am in love with this outfit and wish I could be wearing it right now! Thanks for the great nautical inspiration :)


amanda tinsley said...

All this gray weather has been such a drag. They are calling it a "wintery mix" here in NYC. That said, I adore the anchor toggle on your belt. So cute!


Joy Shana said...

Love your scarf and bag,perfect for a rainy day, we have been having rain a lot too

Always Maylee said...

I love the red jeans and that striped scarf. Love the casual chic!

Lorena said...

Love the bun and would you believe that even thought it rains here half of the time, i have never worn rain boots ?

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh boy, I just adore red and chambray combo. You look stunning, darling.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Well it's slushing today in New York... and I don't think there will be any photos. Not that there would be anyway-- no time to take them before it's dark :(

I should have worn red today, I think it would have brightened me up!

fourseasonsonewardrobe said...

Your outfit cheers up a rainy day! More color to the people! And more sun! ;-)
