Hello, friends! I wore this outfit yesterday (Monday), hence the title of this post, but unlike the song from which I stole the lyrics, rainy days do not get me down. In fact, I love rainy days because they give me an excuse to dress extra cozy/comfy and to wear my rain boots!
Okay, obviously it doesn’t look much like a rainy day what with my sunglasses and the blaring sunlight streaming into the shot making it difficult to properly expose and totally killing the “gray skies” mood I was looking for, but what can I say? I live in Southern California and the rain that was supposed to last through the night and into the morning barely lasted a couple hours. Oh well, I still love my outfit!
Plus, the lack of rain meant this beautiful tree wasn’t too slippery to stand on; I only fell, like, twice! ;)
The details: plaid shirt dress (H&M) // skinny jeans (Old Navy) // olive green rain boots (Tretorn via MyHabit) // burgundy cross-body purse (Target) // mint sunglasses (Tilly’s) // gold circle stud earrings (American Eagle)
My favorite part of this outfit is the amazing plaid shirt dress. I have been searching for a shirt dress like this for what feels like forever, and then one day it just appeared (or so it felt) on a rack at H&M. I checked the price and practically squealed when I saw it was only $10. I tried it on, fell instantly in love and the rest, as they say, was history!
I also love pairing this shirt with my gray leggings and these rain boots for a more “run-errands-and-hang-around-the-house” kind of rainy day outfit. This shirtdress has become a new winter staple in my wardrobe, and I know I will cherish it for years to come!
Did you get anything new this season that you now feel you can no longer live without?? Tell me about it, stud! ;)
As always, thanks for reading :), Kristi
PS. Here’s a “blooper” just for you! (I told you I only fell off the log a couple times!)
