W2W: A Rainy Day (Part Two)

Rainy days always emanate a comfortable and cozy vibe. Waking up this morning was difficult, but it was one of those days where wearing leggings or jean leggings and a long cozy sweater was appropriate.

Here is what I like to wear on cool, rainy days:


Cheaper option

  1. H&M, Jumper, $22.95
  2. H&M, Blouse, $14.95
  3. Forever 21 Zippered Leg Skinny Jean, $27.80

Total: $65.70

More Expensive

  1. J. Crew Collection, Cashmere Plaited Sweatshirt, $188.99
  2. Topshop White Shirt, $40.00
  3. Hudson Jeans, Nico Mid-Rise Skinny, $154

Total: $382.99

When wearing a cozy jumper/sweater, I like to pair it with a crisp white shirt left untucked as it provides a relaxed look. I usually wear a darker coloured sweater, but to brighten up a gloomy day, I might wear a lighter colour (mint green, blush pink, tiffany blue).

I also love wearing leggings. I usually use this same look, but instead of wearing jeans, I wear these.

What’s your rainy day outfit?

W2W: A Rainy Day (Part One)

I slept in this morning hitting the snooze button several times (snooze buttons shouldn’t exist or I need to put my alarm clock on the other side of my room). It was very gloomy and rainy outside, but I always love dressing for rainy weather. I look forward to pulling out my Hunter boots, stripes (the one and only Hudson’s Bay umbrella) and a cozy sweater. Here’s what I’d wear on a rainy day:

Outerwear

Cheap

  1. Forever 21, Ripstop Trench Coat, $29.80
  2. B2, Rain Boots, $58.98*
  3. IRain, Classic White Umbrella, $25.00

Total: $113.78

*These boots are on sale now!!

ExpensiveRAIN

 

  1. J. Crew, Collection Icon Trench, $344.00
  2. Hunter, Original Tour Rain Boots, $160.00
  3. Hudson’s Bay Company Collection, Walking Stick Umbrella, $35.00

Total: $539.00

I haven’t found a trench coat yet, but I love wearing Hunter boots and twirling my Hudson’s Bay Company Collection umbrella on a rainy day.

Classic black rain boots are always a great addition to your rainy day outfit, but to brighten up your day, you may want to choose a colourful pair. I have a silver metallic pair of rain boots from Hunter (I snagged  them on clearance from Holt Renfrew Last Call 5 years ago for $60!).

What colour are your rain boots?

This past weekend felt like spring was on its way. On Saturday, the sun was shining and patios were full of people enjoying the warmer weather . I finally brought out  one of my spring jackets and ended up spending the early afternoon with my boyfriend and his brother at the market. We even got a chance to eat lunch outside on the picnic tables at the market.

As soon as I read this, I immediately pulled out my iPhone and took a photo. A great quote to read on a beautiful Saturday morning.

My healthy eating and fitness plan ran smoothly last week. I will be posting healthy breakfast recipes this week.

A gift from my mother: my guilty pleasures. I love macaroons, especially pistachio and chocolate flavoured ones.

I love spending Saturday mornings at the St. Lawrence Market. I bought these beautiful farm fresh pussy willows. The farmer I purchased them from sold over 400 bunches this weekend!

My neighbours have two gorgeous cats. I’m not a cat person, but I do love this one.

Hope you all had a wonderful and sunny weekend. I’m looking forward to the warmer spring weather!
