In the Mood for a Bright Rainy Day

After living in one of the rainiest cities (Seattle) for 4 years, I like wearing bright colors on rainy or gray days. This strategy is a good way to lighten up your mood as well as combat Seasonal Affective Disorder that can be a side effect of the gray weather. These orange sweater tights keep me warm and also compliment the t-strap open-toe heels as well.

When the weather outside is frightful, a short sleeve or 3/4 sleeve sweaters may not do you any good. However, with a pair of arm warmers, you can look cute and stay warm at the same time (they are quite useful. See previous post where I wore a pair). I like how lady-like they are and they do keep you warm :).

For those of you who have been considering getting a clear bubble umbrella, let me tell you: don't hesitate anymore. They are great! Not only are these umbrellas quite the style statement but they're very practical as well since they block the wind better than normal umbrellas. You can also see straight through them rather than having to stare down at your feet while walking in a storm.

Also thanks Johnny for taking the photos on a rainy day. Check out his blog: Bits & Bites for some beautiful food porn.
