Rainy Day Blues (See Jane Wear)

H&M tank, J Crew cardigan + wellies + necklace (outlet), Mink Pink skirt (c/o Tilly Boutique), clutch - gift from friend, Ray Ban sunnies
April showers seemed to have only brought even more showers to the Chicago area.  On Derby Day, it was chilly and wet.  I opted to stay in during the day parties to work on some last minute wedding details but emerged in the early evening to meet some friends.  Determined to dress like it's spring, I wore my rain boots with a skirt.  I've had these boots for what seems like forever and while they've done me well, they're actually starting to leak so it may be time to spring for the Hunter Boots.  It may be an investment seeing as it's rained about 90% of the time the past month.










How was your weekend?

What a pretty all-blue ensemble! That outfit would certainly brighten any girl's rainy day. And the china blue print of the skirt is extraordinary on you.

Your boots are too cute but I can say that Hunters are fantastic -- not too heavy and they keep me dry! You look absolutely adorable; the weather has been nasty but you're so chic! I love your skirt and that adorable clutch.

Go for the Hunters! I love my pair!

Side note...continuing our workout conversation...not sure where you're at in the city, but my cousin has a fab pilates studio on Rockwell (also offers yoga)...I think its in the Avondale area. Love her class (and the 1st class is free)...if you were looking for a place to get you going again!
