Rainy Day Essentials

6 Mar

What an appropriate post for this rainy day!  I thought that maybe if we had the perfect rainy day essentials, perhaps it would make it not that bad after all…

One of the best ways to brighten up a bleak day is to add color!

I loved this London Fog coat in Magenta!

Heritage Trench Coat available at Nordstrom

Time-tested details enhance the weather protection and durability of a classic double-breasted trench. For added versatility, both the toggled hood and quilted liner are detachable.

  • Removable belt.
  • Belted cuffs.
  • Front pockets.
  • Buttoned epaulets.
  • Buttoned storm flap.
  • Buttoned gunflap.
  • Back vent.
  • Approx. length from shoulder: regular 37 1/2″; petite 33″.
  • Polyester lining and detachable liner.
  • Cotton/polyester; machine wash. $178



This Vera Bradley umbrella looks like it would coordinate perfectly with the trench coat! $34 at Vera Bradley

The Umbrella is back with more color than ever! With a coordinating wrist strap and handle, auto open and close functionality, and a snap tab closure with matching sleeve, you might actually look forward to a slight summer shower.

These wedge rain boots caught my eye for more than one reason! One, I LOVE that they are a wedge! Next, these boots are offered in gunmetal which

is a hot color for Spring and makes a great neutral that would work with almost any outfit.  So, check them out!  At $85 they are a little cheaper than Hunter boots at $135.
A molded-rubber rain boot lined with cozy microfleece is boosted with a contrast wedge heel.

  • Approx. heel height: 2 1/2″ with 3/4″ platform.
  • Approx. boot shaft height: 5″.
  • Rubber upper/textile lining/rubber sole.
  • By Tretorn; imported.
  • BP. Shoes.

Available at Nordstrom for $84.95


If you are not a fan of a wedge rain boot, then you can definitely go classic with a pair of Hunter Wellies!

I think they are adorable in hot colors, but if the jacket is a already a hot hue, then you should keep them a simple neutral.  However, feel free to reverse this look and go with a black or tan trench and then do the color pop with your boots and umbrella!

Comfort and quality combine in a glossy, water-tight rubber boot finished with a traction-gripping sole. A subtle tonal design circles the top, while an adjustable buckle at the side adds interest.

  • Approx. heel height: 1″.
  • Approx. boot shaft height: 16″; 15″ calf circumference.
  • Measurements taken from size 9 and may vary slightly by size.
  • In hot or humid weather, natural latex rubber releases a protective wax film; simply wipe it off with a damp cloth.
  • A pristine finish and shine is easily restored with regular use of Hunter Boot Buffer or Instant Boot Shine.
  • Rubber upper/textile lining/rubber sole.
  • By Hunter; imported. Graphite Grey $135


SO, the next time grey skies got you down… Make the most of stormy weather with these rainy day essentials!

What do you think?? Go treat yourself to some cute rain gear that will keep you from getting soaked!

Good Luck and let me know how you do!

Nicole Scherzinger wearing London Fog!

24 May

Nicole Scherzinger won’t be returning as a judge on X Factor, but her brand new London Fog campaign is catching a lot of attention!

Here is a look at that campaign!

She was seen out and about trying to snag a cab while wearing her London Fog “Ling” trench coat in vivid raspberry pink while toting her London Fog “Holloway” mini satchel.

Where does one go to buy a London Fog Trench? Nordstrom of course!

What do you think of Nicole Scherzinger as the new face for London Fog? I think it is a great way to revitalize their brand.  Anyone into X Factor?  Should be interesting with the new judges!  I’m excited to see how Britney Spears does on the show!!!
