Rain Rain Go Away: Styling Rain Boots

Disclaimer: I did receive compensation in the form of products for this post. However, all opinions are my own.

It hardly seems fair.

We spent a few months in one of the worst winters in years, only to then have to contend with weeks of rainyness. It goes without saying that my rain boots have been making a few appearances lately.

I feel like whenever I have to wear rain boots, I also want to be bundled up in a sweater so that’s what I’ve been doing!

Sweater: Aeropostale Bethany Mota (similar) | Leggings: Fleece lined leggings from Ross | Rainboots: C/o Joules

I recently got these Rainboots from Joules because my rain boots from my high school days were not fashionable to say the least. They were black with multi colored polka dots. Cute, but not really functional for wearing an outfit. I basically wore them when I needed to do yardwork and it was muddy outside, but definitely not out anywhere when it was raining!

These are definitely different! I love that they are super cute and can go with both black and brown clothing and I especially love the little bow on the back!

I paired it with a sweater from Aeropostale that I got from the Bethany Mota line. It’s chunky knit makes it perfect for spring and fall rainy days because it’s not super warm, but it’s warmer and cozy for a slightly colder day.

I also just wore fleece lined leggings since the sweater was long enough to cover my butt. (Leggings are NOT pants, people!)

I was super cozy all day long and my boots fit the day perfectly! I’m so glad I finally have some great shoes to wear for rainy days since it seems we are having a lot of them!

I even decided to get silly and came up with these fabulous poses:

You guys, I'm super excited today! I've shared maybe three recipes on my blog since I started blogging. The sad truth is, I'm not in the kitchen very much!

When my friend Sara asked me about guest posting, we decided that it would be the perfect time to share a recipe on my blog! In fact, we decided to swap blogs for today so on her blog, … [Continue reading...]

Free Printable Chalkboard Spice Jar Labels

chalkboard spice jar labels

I've been wanting to make this particular printable for quite some time. I finally had the motivation to do it recently! Unfortunately, I'm not the biggest cook in our family. I can make basic stuff, but finding my way around a kitchen and our spice cabinet is not the easiest thing for me. Still, I love seeing all the pretty spice jar set ups on Pinterest, so I decided to finally make some labels myself! I guess you could kind of say this is a two part post though, because I'm only sharing … [Continue reading...]
