Fashion rain retro chic

Raindrops keep falling on my head...but that doesn't mean I can't stay fashionable in the rain and retro chic. Sure my hair is wavy, my socks are wet and my umbrella has turned inside out, but at least I'm still smiling. Well lovelies, the rain has been falling over San Francisco for the past 12 days. And yes I am itching for some lovely sun, but it could always be worse. When I first moved to SF, it rained for 3 months straight...
How fab are these Burberry Studded Rain boots? I come from the school of fashion that no matter the weather outside you can still look stylish.



Look it's raining retro umbrellas....

She seems so free and I wish I could let go and stand with her in the rain.



Why am I in love with this rain boot picture? Because I've always wanted a pair, but haven't bought rain boots yet. These boots talked to me and made me wonder if while the heavens are opening up and pouring rain down, would I smile to see these colored Wellies on my feet?



I love the magic of this Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco rain shot.

Don't you love the creativity of this fashion rain chic picture from Betsy & Iya? This picture was taken on the Toronto fashion scene and feels kind of retro. Maybe if I got a pair of these thigh-high boots my rainy days wouldn't look as gloomy. Tell me sweetie, what's your favorite king of weather to play in?

awww I love the picture of the girl with her head up feeling the raindrops:) and the one with the woman in really high green boots! I don't think i'd wear those but I'd love to get me a pair of cute wellies! I think they are so stylish and fashionable, but sadly also expensive!

I love my Wellies - navy with red trim. Great for a rainy day or trudging thru the mud.

It rained for two months when I first moved to Boston! Everyone said, "This means we'll have a mild winter, since the summer has been ruined." But they lied.

And I love the Burberry's...neutral colored rain boots are the best for wearing to work :)

Dollface: You must have looked like you were swimming in them! Oh those studded boots would look so good on you xoxo

Laura said...

Nikki: Those are my favs as well. Thanx honey!

Laura said...

JMW: Can you send me a picture of yours so I can find a pair?

Laura said...

Party Box Design: houndstooth how amazing is that? So unique and fab!

Laura said...

Leah: Isn't it amazing and I couldn't find who took it. Hopefully someone will let me know. Have a great day!

I live in the Marina, I'm surprised you've survived in this city w/o wellies w/ all this rain we've been having...as much as I know rain is good for our beautiful state, can it be over now? :-)

Such beautiful photographs. I love my wellies, I wear them almost 2-3 times a week in Boston. Also, I LOVE the umbrella print...I heard it was free to download right now!

I'm about to go look for some Hunters tonight, but I sure wish I could snag those Burberry beauties!
