Rain, rain don’t go away.
I finally found time to play!
Rain has been my love for a while now. I believe I mentioned it quite a few times on this internet diary. I just love the feeling of comfort and renewing it brings. The smell also is very earthy which I am fond of! And I finally get to wear my new JCrew rain jacket I picked up at an outlet this summer.
I find it always hard to find proper rain gear. I am pretty sure that I have gone through the majority of my life not having a rain coat. And since umbrellas are a pain to find when you need them, I pretty much lived in hats and boot on rainy days. Boots were the only smart option on rainy days at our university unless you wanted to be one of the students freezing in class because of their now soaked jeans and flip flops they chose to put on that day. So all that to say that I am pretty excited about this coat. Oh, and while I was searching for pretty fall fabric to start a few new designs I stumbled across some pretty cool fabric that would look nice as a rain jacket. If I ever find time for another side project, a new rain coat will be made!
Since my pretty JCrew raincoat inspired my day, I decided to go with the JCrew look and piled on layers, with a hint of jean and of course a pretty flower belt. The belt is the one I put together for my bros wedding this past Monday. I need to show you those pics soon.
Well, I hope you weekend is splendid! Mine will be full of sewing projects, a Breakfast Hat Club and a bridal shower for my friend who is a wedding planner!!
Dreaming of a fun eventful weekend,
