RAIN DAY WHITE | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

RAIN DAY WHITE | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

Rain sucks.  The puddles and the humidity call for a bad hair day and a sticky outfit.  Being the "smart" person that I am, decided that it was a good idea to wear white on such a day.  Mistake.  Not only was I concerned about spashing dirt on my crisp white pants, but I was also afraid of getting them wet, and causing the pants version of a "wet tee shirt contest".  But none-the-less, I took a chance, and wore my FAVORITE pair of white jeans.  Even though it was 60 degrees + outside, rain still gives the feeling of cold.  So on top of my jeans, I put on my new favorite sweater top, emboridered around the neck as well as the sides.  Though my body was fully covered, the light jeans and top allowed for a breatheable and spring-like outfit.  

To finish off this look, I put on my favorite gold bracelets and gold earrings.  To tie in the metal, I put on faux suede sandals with gold embellishments.  My toenails were painted white from the previous week, which ended up working perfectly for this look.
