Don't mind the rain

Is it weird that I photoshopped the rain drops off my bag? It was a very anti-summer day the Saturday afternoon I wore this outfit on a lunch date in New Haven with Meg and Christine. Freezing cold* and rainy, I took my cardigan off for these photos alone, and then proceeded to start my lunch off with a hot bowl of soup.

While we could have asked for better weather, it was a long overdue lunch date and it was lovely to chat and catch up with some of my favorite bloggers after such a long time.

And I suppose that Meg and I are no strangers to faking it through an outfit shoot and pretending the inclement weather isn't bothering us in the least.

*Freezing cold is a relative term. In the winter it means 32° and below, in the summer it means 65° and below.

  1. I love this skirt- and your hair is slayin' it here. Also, not weird at all you photoshopped the raindrops off the bag! I would've totally done the same. :)

  2. Such a great look! And I am drooling over the bag!!!

  3. I know exactly what you mean, anything below 65' would be considered freezing in July! Love the skirt, such a cute ootd for girls out. -R

  4. I was just thinking that the other day when it was 65 and raining--it's freezing! But if it were December, I'd be out in bare legs and celebrating! LOL I love your skirt, sandals and bangle!

  5. My range of comfort is really only a few degrees (maybe 79-81F). This summer has been so cool and rainy. I hope we have a better fall. This is the perfect outfit for a get together with the girls

  6. Yep...the weather was bad, but the company was good! So overall an awesome day! :D

  7. Every time I read about you guys all getting together I get super nostalgic --- sorry about the crappy weather though!

  8. I totally agree, cold is relative! Summer needs to me 80 degrees or more. I love your striped, fitted skirt -- pairing it with black really makes it stand out!


  9. Love the skirt and your hair is so healthy. Enjoy!

  10. I love that turquoise necklace even more today than I did yesterday. There's something about the way the turquoise shade pops with the blue and gold stripes in your skirt - which, frankly, is a piece that I also love but that I don't think I've ever loved better than in this look. It's mid work day at this point so I don't have a ton of original thoughts to say, but suffice to say that this outfit will no doubt be my favourite of the week.

  11. Your outfit is very chic and classy, love your bag too <3

    I have a Giveaway post, please do check it out :)

  14. Cute skirt, and I love the bag, you look great!

  15. I love that striped skirt and the bracelet goes perfectly with it.

  16. Such a great look, so in love with the striped skirt and love how you kept everything else simple!!

  17. that skirt is so pretty, such a pretty and girly outfit.


  18. Summer weather here has been crazy too--right now it's super hot but we've had so much rain and strange chilly weather. I love this look though, you know I'm a stripes fan :)

  19. What a perfect outfit for a meet up! I love your bracelet!

  20. I wished I knew how to use photoshop to take out things I don't like. Very pretty skirt and sound like you had a nice time with some blogging friends.


    P.S. Stop by for a $25 gift card giveaway to The Mint Julep Boutique.

  21. I love your skirt! And oh, I feel your pain with faking it through the elements. I hate when I have to photoshop my nose to be a normal colour instead of being purple from the cold!


  22. Beautiful outfit, the skirt is gorgeous!!!!

  23. You're hair looks amazing! You're so right though about "cold" being a relative term depending on the season... We can all start bundling up for the fall when it gets to 50 degrees :)

  24. You may have been chilly, but you still look absolutely gorgeous in these photos! (How come my hair can't hold a beautiful curl like that?! ;-) )

  25. You faked it well because you only look cool in the elegant and calm sense!

  27. Thanks for clearing up that freezing thing. I love that, because anytime it rains and gets slightly cooler, I find myself chilly. Bodies are weird things, man.

    That bracelet is really catching my eye--I adore bracelets that are open like that. They're so adjustable and have a hint of an Egyptian look to them!
