How I Style It : Rainy Day Style

This post contains affiliate links. And links for the Blogged tee and the current giveaway can be found at the end of this post.

Welcome to April’s installment of our “How I Style It” blog hop–it’s all about rainy day style for those April showers!  We have decided to transition the former link-up into a blog hop hosted by myself, Della Devoted, BYBMG, Garay Treasures, and What Nicole Wore.  Once a month, we’ll get together to show you how we style our favorite fashion trends! You can meet the hosts down below:) 

Um, sometimes the weather just doesn’t cooperate.  Usually, it’s pouring buckets when I need some clear weather for a blog shoot.  But when I actually need a little rain, even a sprinkle, for a shoot, it’s sunny skies for days. Seriously.  So just imagine these were taken on a cloudy day with impending rain.haha

My rainy day style always has a few rules: 1. No white pants (you’re asking for stains). 2. No flip flops or sandals without backs. That just flips mud and water onto your pants. 3. Ankle length pants or shorter, to avoid wet pants. 4. No socks because ew, wet socks.

Here, I’ve paired my new ankle-length skinny khakis that I nabbed in-store at the Gap Factory for less than $11 (not as cheap online) with some of my favorite rainy day shoes–these Coach loafers.  Sometimes, rain boots just don’t match your outfit, so I like these shoes for a dressier look without having to worry about soaking my feet.  Since my shoes are bright, I tossed on this Lilly Pulitzer Elsa top that I scored at Clothes Mentor for only $35 ($158 retail!) and some fun accessories.

And every rainy day needs a cute umbrella.  Chauncey got me this Kate Spade one for my birthday last year, and I’ve really been wanting to shoot a blog post with it ever since.  I guess the rain gave me a rain check.haha
