April Showers...

Although Spring is "technically" here, I've definitely had my fair share of rainy days this month, living in the San Francisco Bay Area. With the help of my lovely friend, co-worker, & fellow blogger, Stephanie of, I'm here to share one of my favorite rainy day outfits. 

To contrast the grey, gloomy weather, I love adding some color to my day using my outfit. This NY&Co. houndstooth coat is an absolute favorite of mine, and it's definitely a closet staple that I plan to keep for years to come. It's made a comeback every Fall and Winter since 2010.  I love paring classic, neutral patterns like the houndstooth of my coat with bright pieces! 

My sweater, umbrella, & nails add that wonderful, colorful splash that I need to get through a rainy day. The bright colors also help allow this outfit to transition from Winter to be suitable for those early springtime showers. My bright citron sweater is from Old Navy. My purple umbrella was a gift from my mom, but you can find a similar one here. My bright, coral nail polish is by Essie - Peach Daiquiri.

Hope my outfit inspires you to bring a little color into your next rainy day! Until the sunshine is here to stay, I'm still having fun throwing together some fun outfits from items I already own in my closet. :)
