hair up, boots on.. let’s weather this storm!
It’s raining cats & dogs outside!
Nonstop rain.. this storm is hitting Houston hard. More floods, more damages done to the city. Can you imagine if this happened during Super Bowl week? Yikes! Fingers crossed that it will be nothing but sunshine and butterflies that day. One thing living in Texas has taught me is that always wear layers. Cold in the morning [50s], hot in the afternoon [90s], and at night it could go either way. There’s not pattern or consistency with crazy weather!
First off, I would like to apologize for posting a picture up without having my face on other than lipstick. The rain kept me in bed a lot longer than usual. Did a quick french braid in the center of my hair, whip it and made a samurai bun.
The only pair of rain boots I own is my Burberry ones with the classic print on them. Unfortunately, having a certain print on the boots made me pick my outfit to match the shoes instead of matching my shoes with my clothes. It’s a girl thing. How could I go wrong the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue or shades of those colors. Maroon, sky blue, and white works well together with the black jeans, complementing the gloomy weather and black stripes. Okay, I got my hair up, rain boots on… now I need something to shield my body and head from the rain! [I am a tad dramatic when it comes to rain, typically scared of my face melting, but today, no makeup.] 🙂
I had to grab my burgundy rain coat, coordinating with the red stripes on the boots! Ahh, I love this jacket. It’s perfect for rainy days during the warmer days. It’s short and super light with a big hood! Thank goodness for the big hood. I want the hood to kind of go over my forehead to further protect my face; plus, I have a big head for a girl, wearing the same size caps as my boyfriend. Additionally, the rain coat has a collar thing that I can buckle up protecting my neck like a funnel!
