Today's Everyday Fashion: For Real

Yellow rain jacket, striped top

When I started blogging many moons ago I wanted to talk about catalog photos like today's. Let's be real: I love her look, but I wondered how it could work in real life? (rain + silver stilettos?) Could there be a way to take the same idea, but make it more practical? I set out to blog about that question everyday. My look today wound up being much more casual than hers, but it sprouted from the original idea of wearing a striped button front with a yellow raincoat. The end result is something I'd throw it on when I'm craving a hoodie on a rainy day. Just as comfy but more stylish - a win win in my book!
