Rainy Winter Weather Wear

As of late I've had more weekend plans than I could say at the beginning of this semester. Because of that, I feel like I've been wearing many of my clothes in a variety of ways for work and activities on the weekend in an attempt to dress for this ever changing weather. Before heading back to Greenville at the beginning of August after a quick trip home I made the mistake of leaving some of my chunkier winter sweaters at home. Definitely not my best move since with the cooler temperatures and a mix of rain it has felt more like winter than fall. 

Most of the time when it's raining outside I do my best to make it so that I don't have to go outside, but I don't think our school principal would approve of that as a sick day so alas, I venture out despite my best efforts. Ideally that would mean a cozy sweatshirt, leggings, rain boots, and a rain jacket but in the real world that isn't quite as acceptable as one would like to think. So instead, I've been relying on this combo which is the put together and more adult-like version of what is mentioned above. 

I purchased this cozy grey sweatshirt during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this summer and have been waiting for the opportunity to wear it. With statement sleeves I knew it needed a little bit of something but nothing too overwhelming to dress it up a bit. So I did what anyone with roommates would do, walk into their roommates room and ask to look through their jewelry. I settled on this cute green tassel necklace to dress it up a bit without sacrificing any comfort. This pair of jeans has been on repeat all season long so with plenty of washes previously I could be confident that the denim wouldn't stain in rainy weather. With a casual rain jacket on my to-buy list I've opted to wear my Barbour with its hood more than ever (not pictured). If anyone has any suggestions for a good everyday rain jacket let me know since the one I've had since middle school no longer repels water. Fortunately, my Hunter rain boots are still in good working order and are easy to throw on with any outfit due to their neutral color. If you're in the market for Hunter rain boots I'd highly recommend getting a neutral like grey, navy, black, or even hunter green. I find that the simpler the color the more I can pair them with without trying to create an outfit solely around their color. I still own my tall pair of plum Hunter rain boots, but I definitely don't reach for them as often. Also, I've always gravitated to the gloss style since I like for mine to be shiny but if that isn't your style the regular ones wear nicely over time as well.

Unfortunately we can't wear jeans for teaching (aside for on specific days) so this outfit would have to be altered for school. Nothing a pair of navy chino pants or J.Crew Gigi pants couldn't handle. I'd love to hear your mentality when it comes to getting dressed for dreary winter weather before work!

  2. I love the color of those Hunter boots! I have black ones, but I think I want to invest in some light colored ones too to brighten up a rainy day.

  4. The dresses share above are very perfect for the rainy season.
    Specially the shoes are very good, their is no chance of water to go inside the shoes.

  5. If you're in the market for a new rain jacket, I highly recommend the brand Frog Togs. I got my first jacket last year & they're really great at repelling rain & also dry really quickly (which is SO nice). They're also pretty inexpensive as well. I purchased mine at a local sporting goods store, but I think places like Mountain High Outfitters (when you come back to Alabama, if you have one of those near you) and Bass Pro Shops carry them. They're just plain jackets, so they don't have a lot of frills but they work great!
