my favorite thing about today #51.

My favorite thing 
about today was….

an outfit for a rainy Portland day.

But really and quite honestly, I will probably be planning many an outfit around my new and beloved Hunter wellies.  Usually we don’t wear shoes in the house, but I kept them on all day.  Craig asked me if I was going to change my shoes when we went out, but I told him I was never going to change my shoes.  I said I was going to wear my boots all day every day – even to bed because I love them that much!  His response was:

“What are you?  6?  
You’re totally 6 years old right now.”

Yes.  Yes I am 6.  So what if there’s a 2 in front of that 6!  I love my rain boots and they make me want to jump in a puddle like a giddy child.  I think you have to take joy in the little things in life or else, what’s the point?

Dress:  Tucker for Target  
Scarf:  H&M
Cardigan:  Thrifted.  
Belt:  F21
Tights & Socks:  Fred Meyer. 
Wellies:  Hunter
Lipstick:  MAC Impassioned layered over Russian Red

Hope you all have a lovely day!

Oh…and make sure to check back tomorrow, 
cause I’ve got a video up my sleeve.
  (Hint:  It’s mine & Craig’s 3 year anniversary!)

    when we had the snake in the house, i wore my cowboy boots around for about three weeks, and the only time i took them off was after i’d gotten in bed. so, i kind of know how it is to want to keep your boots on, but more because of fear than excitement 😉
