I don’t know if y’all heard, but us Californians are finally got some RAIN last week! Whooo!! Thanks, El Nino. #EndTheDrought
I haven’t had much of a need to collect proper rain gear since it’s been a long while since we had any substantial amount of rain, but that storm had me searching for cute & chic gear to get through it. I need to be ready for whenever it decides to come back… (and I reaalllyyy hope it comes back…)
Here are the top 10 rainy day items on my wish list:
#1 – Coffee Shop Trench Coat – If I’m being completely real, I REALLY want a Burberry Trench Coat. But my budget sooo doesn’t allow for one. This one is a real great second option though!
#2 – TOPSHOP Boutique Chunky Cable Knit Sweater – This just looks like a warm hug in sweater form, really.
#3 – Kate Spade New York Rain Check Umbrella – How chic is this umbrella?! I often find umbrellas to be cumbersome pieces of equipment, but I wouldn’t mind the hassle with one this cute.
#4 – Dirty Laundry Women’s Reckless PVC Rain Boot • Chinese Laundry – I actually have a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs rain boots but they’re about 8 years old and purple. (I thought that was being real cool.) I immediately fell in love with how these look like regular, great looking riding boots, but with all the rain boot attributes.
#5 – diptyque ‘Roses’ Scented Candle – Honestly, the hype is justified. I’m sure you’ve seen this somewhere else, and I used to think “How great can a candle really be?” but when I went into Nordstrom and smelt them for myself – WOW. Each flavor is unbelievable.
#6 – Chronicle Books ‘Secret Garden Artist’s Edition’ Coloring Book – Being an art nerd and design freak, playing with colors is just my thing. I can’t wait to get into a zen mode with some good music and my colored pencils with this beauty.
#7 – Tretorn ‘Wings’ Rain Jacket – I’m totally into the menswear look right now + this jacket is at a great price!
#8 – BP. Chunky Knit Oversize Infinity Scarf (Juniors) – Because you can never have too many scarves (or anything chunky).
#9 – Sperry Shearwater Duck Weather Boot – I’m literally about to go get these even if the storm decided to go away tomorrow. They’re so cute & only $80!
#10 – Gift Boutique Hot Stuff Stackable Mug – I mean… we’re all hot stuff.
What’s even better is that since the Chunky Sweater from Topshop & the Sperry All-Weather Boots are both on SALE, everything on this list under $100!
Who doesn’t love a good bargain?!
