rainy day duds

Dress:  Gap (similar here) |  Trench:  Banana Republic  |  Bag:  Kate Spade  |  Necklace:  Jennifer Zeuner  |  Boots:  Hunter


I've upgraded my outlet trench to a better quality trench from BR and I'm already loving the difference.  It was perfect for this dreary rainy day - which as you can see I clearly was caught in (hence the crazy hair) when grabbing breakfast at Beekman Street Cafe.  I also splurged on another pair of Hunter wellies because I'm pretty much dying for a pair in every color.  The trench, welly combo with navy and white stripes is about as preppy as I get.  I love being able to pair stripes with neutral colors and then add in a pop of color (or two) to pull the whole look together!


John and I had an amazing hike a few weekends back.  Well, I should preface it with that we weren't very prepared!  We arrived earlier than planned and it was quiet cold.  It made us both a little nervous to step out for the hike, plus we saw more experienced hikers really bundled up!  We ended up driving to Lake Placid to stop at a shop for some inexpensive coats andddd he ended up with a new rain coat and I super lucked out with a new Patagonia!  Hehe!  As soon as we felt warm enough and drove back to the mountain and began the hike, at that point we really could have done with out the coats!  Ha!  It had warmed up that much so I guess we should have just waited out the cold, but I think we were nervous that the 10+ mile hike would have taken longer than we had thought.   The hike in general was on a dirt path, the hike up the mountain was steep and still a bit icy.  On the way back we were able to enjoy more of a trail area that was quiet dense but carried us out on a beautiful stream.  It was almost scary sometimes not knowing what was around the corner or what we would run into!  Indian Head in the Adirondacks was by far my top hike as the views were just amazing!  I'll have to bring a picnic next time to enjoy at the summit!   That shouldn't be an issue as I look forward to hiking it this summer for the swimming and this fall for the foliage!


  1. Oh Shannon seeing you wearing your Trench and Rubber Boots makes me very happy you look gorgeous and a perfect outfit for the rain, I always wear my Wellingtons in wet weather especially when i'm going to work, I hate getting my Stockings splashed.

    1. Thank you! I can't wait to add to the collection! :)
