When The Rain Comes

Warmer weather, budding trees and longer days are all things that we look forward to when spring arrives. Unfortunately spring is also known for it’s rain, and where I am there sure are a lot of wet days. Last month I showed you one way to stay dry by wearing a piece of protective outwear. Today I’m showing another rainy day look for a casual day. This coat is a simple take on the classic trench coat. It’s shorter in length and doesn’t have an attached belt but it serves the same purpose. To protect myself even more I brought along my Ted Baker Umbrella. I highly suggest investing in a good quality umbrella. Not only will it look better and be an accessory to your outfit but it will also be much stronger than cheaper umbrellas on windy days. Footwear in the rain is always a challenge. I prefer suede shoes and wear them most of the time, however, we all know that suede and water are not the best of friends. There are great brands out there such as Swims, that make stylish footwear for the rain and then rain boots are always an option but not the best choice when it comes to appearance. What I like to do is wear a leather pair of shoes. If they are treated properly then there should be no problems in and your feet will stay dry during your commute. Hope you enjoy this look.

  2. Love the patterned coat underneath...favourite colour :) You look great, the rain is not always helpful in dressing, but, I like the layers on this, better than a bulky rain jacket many wear!
