outfit: rainy day

June 11, 2014

rain day with hunter boots  // the average girl's guide It’s safe to say that summer in Florida includes a daily dose of rain. Sometimes a drizzle and sometimes all out torrential where all you want to do is cuddle under the covers and not be at work, or desperately need to run errands. After searching for rain boots for ages, I splurged on these baby blues after finding my size on major sale. Well, I first emailed two bff’s — one in Seattle and one in NYC — for validation. You do that too sometimes, right?

The boots fit well — much better than knee-high versions in nearly every brand that would always hit my knees when walking. Plus, I carry these flip flops with me pretty much everywhere, even for lunch breaks or after work when I need to crank out a few errands fast.  Swap them out, and this is generally my weekend look: a special tee, shorts, a few jewels, and a great bag — this one from olivia + joy, with a fun print and lots of space.

Must confess that this is day four since washing my hair. Have you tried the style winder I mentioned a few months ago? It’s made a monumental difference in my hair… so much so, that I don’t love wearing my hair straight anymore… and straight hair day four? Let’s just say it’s not pretty. This takes me about 10 minutes in the morning. If you’re trying it, avoid adding too much product, and start to use dry shampoo at the roots when you need it. Typically day one is straight hair — my hair won’t hold this without a little oil — and then day two or three until I wash it next goes this way lately. rain day // the average girl's guide tee: anthropologie // shorts: j. crew factory // rain boots (sold out; more colors) // bag: ℅ olivia & joy // umbrella: target // bracelet: nordstrom (comes in three metallics) // necklace: kendra scott (comes in a dozen colors)

    Your boots are so cute, and I love the back of that tee! I’ve been really into items with fun backs recently :)

      Same… though like them even better when it doesn’t impact the bra situation!That’s why this one is a major winner.

    You look adorable here - you know I love you in pink! Also your hair looks gorgeous like this!!


    • AvgGirlsGuide

      Ha, yes! Loving the pink, and funny because I didn’t even plan to wear it twice in two weeks. Remember when you had to do my hair in NYC?! You’re still the master but nice to have a few of my own skills now. ;)

    I have the short Hunters too, and they are perfect for petite ladies :) Love this simple outfit, and totally impressed by your day four hair!


    • AvgGirlsGuide

      Exactly! And thanks… day one hair is now my least favorite.

    I love your shortie boots! I just got a gorgeous pair of rain boots from Joules and they are too tall for my little legs. I’m really sad. I need these.

      Really sad. :( This height is so much better for us gals with shorter legs, plus I like that it’s also a little easier to get on and off.

  • Kristen Younes

    You made me want this t shirt! Looks adorable on you. Is it true to size?

    • AvgGirlsGuide

      It’s so good; love the material, too! It is TTS, though slightly slouchy in that comfy way… I’m wearing the small.

    LOVEEEE my Hunter boots too! You look so freakin’ cute!
    ps - I splurged on a Kate Spade bag yesterday thanks to you! : )

    • AvgGirlsGuide

      Yay! Can’t wait to see you style it on the blog. Had I not just purchased a KS on super sale at Bloomies I would have done the same.
