Rainy Day Style

It rained most of the weekend and the day I wear my rain boots and raincoat expecting it to rain it’s all sunshine. I’m always a day late on most things, but I kind of don’t mind wearing rain boots even if it’s not raining or snowing. Same with this jacket — yes, true it is technically meant for the rain but it’s so structured and chic I’m fine with it being perfectly sunny and wearing a raincoat. Plus, you just never know when it comes to rain — so I feel much more safe with a rain coat on hand. Sneaky rain can ruin a great hair day in an instant. 
I picked this jacket up when Nordstrom’s coats went on sale a few weeks back. I’ve never really invested in a rain coat before so when I found this one on sale I thought black would be the best choice. A rain coat is something I don’t think about until I need it immediately — or in my case when traveling. (Does this happen to you? I feel like it ALWAYS rains when we travel. Even in when we go to Vegas for market, it ALWAYS rains and it’s the desert. Now that I think about it maybe it’s me...) I liked this one because I feel like I could easily take it anywhere and year round. Of course no trips are planned yet but you better believe the next place we go it’s going to be rainy because I’ve got a rain coat and boots to wear, people. Bring it on rain.

  5. Still loving that Anthro dress from last year! Such a fun print… I think I saw JCrew has a similar skirt this year. Maybe I’ll have to snag that since I missed out on the dress 🙂

        Hi Kendi, love the coat you’re wearing! The Ellen Tracy raincoat that you link to on the Nordstrom site is double-breasted, while the coat you’re wearing is single breasted… are you sure the link is correct?

  55. Story of my life. It rained nonstop here in London on Sunday and yesterday I busted out my rainboots (after ruining my flats on Sunday) and there was not a single drop of rain. I LOVE Ellen Tracy. Before moving out to London, I definitely bought a few ET coats for work. Super chic and classic.
