Rainy Day

Rainy Day: classic trench, striped shirtdress and hunter boots

It’s been a rainy week here in Dallas and while it can be gloomy, I love the rain! It’s the perfect excuse to pull out my rainy weather gear and splash my way through all the puddles. Nothing beats a spring rain. The air smells so fresh and everything seems greener against the soaked concrete.

I love wearing my spring dresses in the rain. This Chicwish dress is such a classic look. I love a blue and white stripe, especially around a patriotic holiday! A shirtdress never goes out of style and the fit and flare silhouette is always flattering.

My Hunter Boots are always by my back door. I usually end up grabbing them and throwing them in my car when the weather looks threatening. I love that I can pair them easily with my dresses when my sandals just won’t cut it. Hunter has recently redesigned the Original Tall to make the boots more “packable” which is very exciting news! You can see more of that here.

One piece of clothing everyone should have in their closet is a trench coat. I have had mine for a few years now and wear it all the time! My two-tone with the leather accents is a fun twist on the classic trench, but I have to admit I have been contemplating buying a more neutral one like this from Banana Republic (currently on sale)!!

With the weather being rainy for Memorial Day I will be wearing variations of this look all weekend. Even though the storms put a damper on outdoor activities (literally) I am just as excited to stay home and curl up on my couch with my family and enjoy the rain and relaxation. I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday weekend spent with family and friends, and don’t forget to think about those who have served and are serving our beautiful country!

Have a great weekend! xo Bryn

    I’m obsessed with your dress. I don’t know what I have whenever I see stripes I want it.
    I have so many things in stripes that I lost the count and I still buy it. Gorgeous pictures and wish you a lovely day dear.
