Rainy Days

Rainy days are like runny noses--they really make you appreciate those pre-cold days when you weren't a mouth breather leaving a shameful trail of tissues in your wake. When you awake in semi-darkness with cold droplets pounding against your window you suddenly miss those mornings that felt like beginnings with sunshine streaming through the curtains you forgot to close almost making you wish you had worn shades to bed. Rainy days make time seem to advance slower because every hour that passes looks the same as the last without gaining or losing brightness until night is upon you like a hood pulled over your head. Yet, rainy days are like runny noses--giving you an excuse to stay indoors or even in bed re-reading your favorite novels and listening to the sounds of the rain as if it was a mix tape compiled by your best friend.

My opinion on rainy days doesn't change much throughout the years. I absolutely love them...if I don't have a lot of walking to do that day or stuff to carry about. If I'm able to just curl up in a sweater or go get hot chocolate somewhere and listen to music- perfect. But I don't find them to be terribly productive-another similarity with runny noses.

I love rainy days. Even if I have to go out, I love the type of light they have, so different from everything else...

I love that umbrella and yes dark, wet winter days are the worst - time does seem to move slower for some reason. I love your tights and that very full mid length skirt, it's an awesome length on you!

I'm about to get myself an umbrella like that... seems pretty necessary here in Tacoma (as you're well aware). This outfit looks so classic and french to me. All black and white and that striped top is just perfect. Love!

You have such a way with words. Like you, rainy days make me feel torn- I guess. This is one of my favorite of your outfits. Love it and its classic appeal.
