Rain Rain, Accessorize Away

November 04, 2015

If I weren’t so delighted with my rainy day accessories I might be a teensy bit down about all the wet weather we’ve been having lately. But I’m not! I love splashing around town in my Le Chameau rain boots and popping open my cheery rose colored Burberry travel umbrella over my head.

I have a fabulous, globe-trotting aunt. She’s lived in London and New York and Berlin, and other places around the world where the weather can run to extremes. When I was in college and visiting her in Berlin, she and I set out on foot to sight see one wet, bitterly cold winter day.

I’ll never forget her motto: There’s no such thing as bad weather if you’re dressed well for the weather. Remember that and you’ll look fab and have fun wherever you go, come rain or shine!

SuthinGirls can still turn heads on a dreary day!

If you ain’t got a pair of the eponymous Hunter boots by now, I don’t know what to say. Festival girls Kate Moss and Kate Bosworth really likey theirs. Very reliable but not quite as unique as Le Chameau or some of the others below…as in, you may be twinsies with some of your friends.
