shades of gray.

Banana Republic sweater, J.Crew top, J Brand denim leggings, Hunter boots, Aldo bag, Coach scarf, Merona watch, Nordstrom earrings, Marc Jacobs umbrella

Despite the fact that it's midsummer, Minnesota is currently plagued by gloomy weather. While I have been the first to grab a bright dress throughout this season, I suddenly feel like dressing to match the gray, gray days. Thankfully, my new Hunter boots let me brave the rainy weather in style (not that it was easy to get them; there was some serious color deliberation that went on in the middle of Bloomingdale's) while adding just a bit of color to the look. And while I'm not yet convinced that denim leggings work on my shape, this pair is soft and stretchy enough to make me feel like I'm wearing my pajamas, a MUST for me on rainy days.




Wishing you all a fabulous weekend -- and don't forget to enter my boyfriend watch giveaway!

I adore your scarf tied onto your handbag. I like to do that from time to time too. :) It's a great way to add a little pizazz, especially on a rainy day. Hopefully some better weather comes your way soon.

xox,

Gah, Josie you look gorg in your cozy clothes - and I'm envious of you for the gloomy weather. I wish SoCal would get a little gloom - it has been super hot lately!

By the way, denim leggings look beautiful on you - loving this pair!! :)

Hunter boots are so great, cute look.
It's WAY too hot here to wear pants or boots, I can't wait to bust them out.

Love this rainy day outfit. If you can believe it or not I own the Green Hunter boots and that same Marc Jacobs umbrella. We could be twinkies!

Josie, you look so adorable! I will be wearing a lot of jeans tucked into boots once the weather cools down here (which won't be until November I'm sure!) I really love that gray Aldo bag too. I'm loving gray at the moment! It's still neutral but not as basic as black. I'm going to do a post on it sometime to go along with my Summer to Fall series ;)

Valerie said...

Josie, you find a way to look adorable and chic, even in the rain! I'm so impressed. I have a pair of black rain boots (from target) and I'm debating about getting a pair of hunters in either turquoise or yellow. I can't decide! So I understand what you went through. haha. Hope you have a great weekend.

TeachingInHeels said...

I love this look! I was just looking online last night at rainboots (wrong season, I know!) because the only pair I have are pink plaid, kind of limiting for outfits. Love the green color and the sweater too!

Diana Mieczan said...

I am totally smitten with your rain-boots...How cute are they....Awww:)
You look great ,sweetie and I wish we would get a bit of rain...I really need it:) Send it over:) hahaha:)

Kisses and have a great weekend:)

Bren said...

So adorable Josie! Loving your green/grey/blue combo! Your Hunter's are so cute! I've been wanting the red ones for SO long now! I really don't know why I haven't bought them yet! I should order them now, while everyone is still in Summer mode. How did you find the sizing? I've heard you need to size up? I have trouble finding boots to fit my big calves, so wondering how they fit. Would love your feedback.

Hope you have a great weekend!
