boots + brollies

24th January, 2012

{ Miu Miu hat (yep, I just had to buy it), David Yurman earrings + necklace (on loan for a shoot, but I couldn’t resist test driving them myself!), Halston Heritage trench (last seen HERE), Opening Ceremony sweater (similar HERE), gifted Joie elephant print shirt, vintage polkadot skirt, Anya Hindmarch bag (last seen at fashion week) navy Hue tights, Bottega Veneta boots (recently seen HERE), Samsonite umbrella }
Yesterday was gloomy and grey ~ meaning of course that I was expected all over town, with hiding out in bed a definite non-option. Whenever that happens, I’m grateful for the day I decided to invest in a pair of rainboots pretty enough for meetings ~ and an umbrella to match! Speaking of these kicks, I recently wore the same pair HERE, but do you also remember them from way back when?!

And below, some ideas for how you can get the look right now, should you be so inclined:

GREY: buckled Hunter boots and Marc by Marc Jacobs panther print umbrella // ORANGE: Hunter lace-up boots and Shed Rain umbrella // BLACK: Juicy Couture boots and Swaine Adeney Brigg umbrella // BROWN: Timberland boots and Marc by Marc Jacobs animal print umbrella

    I love how you always manage to come up with new and absolutely fresh colour combinations every time, resulting in an always stylish but never "trendy" look. Thank you for the constant inspiration!

    Happy Monday!

    I love this, everything about it screams fun and energetic. The print on print is just perfect and I can't believe you bought the Miu Miu hat, I wanted it so bad, it looks amazing on you. As always, you look so stylish and love this shoot. If you get a chance do check out my blog, I have interesting fashion posts you might love to read.

    Your colorful boots and mixing prints is brilliant, one of my all time favorites!

    Of course you need to test drive products, just in case and that goes for earrings too!

    i'm liking those orange rain boots you featured, but i actually prefer them in the black color they come in because they go with more. i'm also amazed at how even your umbrella matches your rainboots…your ability to always look so put together amazes me.
