Rain, raaaain, lalalala yaaaay...

... you made dressing up fun today!

I woke up today and saw clouds. Instead of my normally pessimistic thought of "UGH" I thought "YAY!" Why? Because it was a chance to debut my new umbrella and (not-new) rainboots, of course!

I love wearing bright colours and fun patterns. I seriously think the world would be a happier place if everyone had fun with fashion; (happy) fashion is contagious! Can you imagine?

I've had these boots for a long time - a good year, at least - but I've never worn them in an outfit! Only for rainy days or mucky field trips, when I'd wear them with my uniform. So, when I saw clouds, I knew I had to centre my outfit around them! Do you guys ever do that? Centre an outfit around an accessory or article of clothing?

Close up of rings - my new favourite piece of jewelry to wear!

These photos were so much fun to take! I know that fall is supposed to be a time for darker colours and yadda-yadda... But, c'mon... You're only young once! Enjoy the neons of the world!

I hope you guys have all had a bright and cheery weekend! Just for the head's up - I probably won't be posting all week due to the fact that I have, well, a uniform and therefore no outfit posts! (You know, unless you're craving to see my grey kilt and blue button down... Tempting, I know...)

What are your favourite colours to wear? Thanks so much for stopping by! And commenting, if you do :)

Jocelynne said...

WAY cool umbrella! I love love love your outfit, too! It reminds me a bit of Blair Waldorf. Sometimes, I actually do base my outfit on a certain article or accessory. Currently, my favourite colours to wear are fall colours like burgundy, navy blue, greys, and not specifically a colour...but fall florals! x

I love these photos! You are so adorable. The rain boots are super cute and those pink tights are lovely! The rings are super cool too, especially the turqoise one.

Valeriesoh said...

i love the colour purple, lavender purple because it has such girly yet gentle approach. I love that you just play with colours in fashion, your taste is like bubblegum sweet & bubbly LOL. i must find a pair of rainboots before next winter, i like them at ankle height, too high just looks too chunky..

This is such a fun outfit, i would love to dress up like this if only the rain comes so often! I adore your pink tights and i think i just had a crush on your umbrella. LOVE IT!

My favourite colours to wear? Would have to say navy blue, gray, white , any pale colours and bright yellow and green. Gosh i can't make up my mind.

Erika said...

I so envy the fact that you actually had a reason to wear rain boots and use an umbrella. I have waited for months for such an opportunity but none have arrived; therefore I've just begun wearing boots in 100-degree heat. The strange looks from random people don't even bother me anymore! :)

Love the colors you're wearing here. I wear a lot of navy blues, plums, olive greens, gray, black, white...okay, I guess I wear many different colors - but more deep than bright, I suppose. Oh yeah, I need your rings - they're just too fabulous not to be taking up space in my jewelry drawer! :)

CHICMUSE said...

GREAT PHOTOS! LOVE THE LOOK.

jamie clare said...

i LOVE that you love color, way cute. i personally lean toward more pastel shades, i don't know, i'm in a phase. haha.

Coco Moreno said...

I'm not a cocktail ring girl, but yours look absolutely cute! Love the umbrella...I can see why you were anxious to show it to everyone!

xxoo

Penny said...

I have the same tights! (: And yes, centering an outfit around one piece is super fun. Like today:
LAME-O GIRL AT SCHOOL: "If you're so hot, take off your blazer!"
Me: "NOOOOOOOO the blazer is the focal point of my whole outfit!!"
Okay, too long of an explanation for a short question. But still. You're not alone (:
P.S. Love the umbrella!

Martynique said...

This umbrella is awesome
and yet these great tights + dress = amazing it looks

clarewbrown said...

These are gorgeous photos! You look like a little beam of sunshine on such a cloudy day! So cute.... And my favorite color to wear? PINK! Hurray!
