Rain, Rain Go Away

So, I’ve decided to make friends with the rain. And the gloom. Granted yesterday it was sunny in Chicago, but I know the gloom isn’t gone. So I’m ready.

An umbrella is such an easy way to make a simple outfit fashionable. Annnnd, it’s functional. I found this umbrella last week, and I haven’t been completely bummed that it’s been rainy. Hey, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

Remember when I first showed you my rain boots in this post last fall? I was hesitant to get red because it was such a departure for me. Update: I’m so glad I did. I wear them all the time. And even though they’re red, they really do go with anything. Plus, they’re pretty snazzy.

If you’re looking for an awesome pair of leggings that don’t break the bank, look no further. I’ve had these leggings for years, and they’re still my go-to black leggings.

Ok, rain. Come and play.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

    I live in the Netherlands and am totally obsessed with Rain Boots. (I do get to wear them every day!) I love these red ones and the whole outfit! . #growyourblog

    • suzanne

      Thank you, Elizabeth! That’s the upside to living in a rainy place, I guess 🙂

  • Kim

    I need this whole outfit – cute umbrella included – right now. We are wet and dreary here.

    Hope you dry out soon!

    Cute look! My kids are obsessed with umbrellas right now. They want to use them even on sunny days (although sunny days have been few and far between here in southern PA lately!)

    • suzanne

      Ha! That’s cute. It’s so funny what kids decide to play with (because most of the time, it’s not toys!).

  • Brittany

      Thanks, Brittany!

      Thanks, Heidi!

  • Corina

    This is so great! I love that you’re using an umbrella to make your outfit fashionable! Not the typical accessory, but so practical on rainy spring days! (We’re having gray, rainy days where I live too.)

  • Clare Speer

    I love that umbrella but especially love those rain boots! Thankfully I am in Florida so except for gloomy weather a bit in the winter we don’t normally deal with constant rain – and I get the “blues” with too much dreariness and rain!

    • suzanne

      Thanks, Clare! Consider yourself lucky that you get to be under the sunshine most days 🙂

  • Lindsey McClure

    Those boots are darling! And so are you! 😉


    • suzanne

      You’re so sweet! Thanks, Lindsey 🙂

  • Olivia Bailey

    I love the red rain boots! Such a cute combo. I’m going to check out those leggings too! Thanks for sharing. Hope you enjoy your day!

    • suzanne

      Thanks, Olivia! They really are my favorite. And so inexpensive!

  • Theresa @DearCreatives

    I miss living where it rains more. We do get rain but, have been in a drought for 5 years now. I love the umbrellas & rain boots! I enjoy rainy weather, but get 95% sun where we are.

    • suzanne

      I’m sorry to hear about the drought! I wish I could send you some of our rain…

  • The Home Loving Wife

    You’re seriously the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life! Those boots and umbrella are perfection!!

    • suzanne

      And you are seriously SO sweet, mama!! xo

  • Denay DeGuzman

    I love those beautiful rain boots with that beautiful pop of color! Your umbrella is really cute too. Here in California the days are filled with sunshine, but an umbrella and rain boots would be perfect here in late fall and winter. Thank you for providing great rainy-day style inspiration! 🙂

  • suzanne

    Thank you, Denay! I love California. My husband and I used to visit a lot, but haven’t since the babe. We need to get back out there!

  • Lana @ The Joy Blog

    Adorable boots! I need a good umbrella. My $5.00 ones aren’t cutting it anymore. They keep breaking and then I’m caught in the rain with no cover!
