Rainy Days and Monday's

Rainy days and Monday's ~ the Carpenters had it right ~ they can get you down. And when that rainy day is on a Monday? I know I've gotta try hard to fight the urge to stay home under the covers! Many of us don't have the luxury to stay home on rainy days (or Monday's) ~ life, work and responsibilities force us out and about. So when that's the case, dressing cozy and cute is one way to combat the "rainy day Monday blues".

A pair of Wellies should be in every girl's closet for days like this. There is nothing fun (or savvy and stylish) about getting your feet soaked walking through the rain (or ruining your shoes!)! You can get a great pair of Wellies at stores like Target and T.J.Maxx or online at places like LLBean and Piperlime. My Hunter Wellies came from Piperlime last winter and they are one of the best purchases I've ever made. I have certainly gotten my money's worth of wear out if them! They are super durable and will last me for years to come.

My cape/sweater came from New York and Company on clearance after Christmas. I seriously think I paid $10 for it. It's one if those pieces that looks not-so-appealing on the hanger but on a person it's perfect! If they had had it in other colors I would have snatched them up too and would have quickly become known as the woman who only wears cape/sweaters. So maybe it's a good thing they were out of the other colors! :-)

A good umbrella is important on days like this too. I own a cute zebra one but of course someone "borrowed" it and I couldn't find it in time for these pics ~ hence the big yellow and black golf umbrella on loan from my husband!

If it's raining or snowing or beautiful and sunny where you are I hope your Monday is savvy and stylish!!

It's raining here today, too, so I have the same type of post :) Hope your days turn sunny!

So cozy! I love my Wellies and they're always in heavy rotation with the crazy east coast weather.
