April Showers Bring May Flowers

Taking pictures in the rain is always difficult and makes me nervous (how much rain can my camera handle?). However, I've been wanting to get some pictures using the reflections in puddles and I'm so glad I finally had the opportunity on a day when it was more misty than a downpour. It was still rather headache-inducing, but the photographs do capture the greyness of the day. One does hope that this weather will bring flowers and greenness as the old saying promises.

Outfit details:
Big Fish umbrella
vintage dress
Target tights
Seychelles booties

  1. I'm loving these pics! I've actually been planning to do something very similar for some time now, but since I bought my Hunter boots it doesn't want to rain anymore! :D

  12. These photos are gorgeous. I like your idea of doing it on a misty day so that the essential mood is still captured but the camera and outfit is not ruined due to the rain.

    You look perfectly dreamy. :) Now that I think of it, I think that is your signature look.

    Love

  14. Rebecca,
    Your blog is one of my favorites! I love coming to see your daily outfits and you have such a good eye for photography. I miss your old banner, though! This one is nice and simple and I can understand the need for a change, but I hope a new one is coming soon!

  19. @Anonymous 8:59PM, I haven't seen Dangerous Liasons yet, but I've heard good things. Maybe I'll add it to my Netflix queue. I don't think I'm particularly optimistic, but rain definitely doesn't get me down...not after living in Washington State anyway!

  20. @Anonymous 1:34PM, I like the old banner too! It doesn't fit with my new layout & I have no plans for a few banner right now...I think I'd like one, but I'm not very good at graphic design (I don't have a good program for it), so it's not in the works right now.

  21. I adore the last photo! I've always wanted one of those extra-cuppy (is that how to describe it?) umbrellas. And the wine-colored tights really make the outfit for me. Much admiration...

  25. You have one of the best blogs out there. I always visit both your personal blog as well as your tumblr.

    Right now the world is facing a lot of problems, so I created a blog shop of clothes that I do not wear in order to donate ALL the proceeds to different charities. If you're interested, please check out the clothes that I have posted! I hope my fellow readers also check it out. Please help out if you can--I will donate to the charity of your choice.
