Rainy Day Casual
I know it’s hard to believe, but those legs and arms actually belong to the same body… After months of pants, I love that we’re getting such a beautiful spring here in North Carolina!
The dress is actually one I altered last year. My mother compared elbow-length sleeves and navy color to African girls’ school uniforms, so I knew they had to go. I followed the back of the collar under the armpit and around the back for a halter neck effect. I can never decide whether to change out the fabric buttons for gold ones, but I love how the cut highlights the points of the collar!

Of course, it rained in the afternoon, so I swapped the sandals for rainboots and grabbed an umbrella! I swore I wouldn’t fall victim to the rainboot trend that ravaged colleges everywhere, but these were impossible to resist. I’ll give them their own post someday, I swear…
Until then, I’ll leave you with another shot of my amazing umbrella! I picked it up the summer before last in China out of necessity, but have you ever seen a shiny silver umbrella before?!
Tell me, how do you dress for the rain but stay stylish?
