How I Style It: April Showers/Rain Outfit & Beautiful

April 6, 2016


Welcome to How I Style It. This is a themed monthly blog hop that a few other bloggers and I have put together to show you how we style different outfits for different themes. While this was a link up for several months we felt that it was time to discontinue the link up and move towards a fresh new collaboration. Todays theme is how to style for rainy weather, because we all know the April Showers Bring May Flowers right?


With April rolling in (or Spring for that matter) we have had our share already of rainy or drizzling days. Because of that I am SO thankful that I invested in these rain boots around Christmas time.

I paired the boots with Jeggings  and added on top a tunic dress.  Then I added this new to me formerly used blazer jacket from Schoola for the layered effect because you all know I love my layers. Perfect rainy day outfit (minus the umbrella).


Ok ladies, last week I posted something I was scared to admit but went ahead and did anyway and since then I had my share of insecurities and relief. The day that post went live I was a scared of criticism or that people wouldn’t look at me the same again.  I thank many of you for your kind words and understanding.

I was able to come to terms and tell myself ” you are beautiful,” and it felt great.  I don’t know what brought those thoughts  on but instantly I felt empowered and happy. The same kind of happy beaming in some of these photos. And it felt good to smile about it.

    You can’t go wrong with a utility jacket! We don’t get a lot of rain here but when I lived in San Jose I always wore my black rain boots! Now they’re just collecting dust!

    I like your rainy day outfit, Rachel. I like the jacket (anything military-esque and/or military green has my name on it). I like the top (can’t go wrong with B&W). And I adore your hair (so carefree and bouncy). My rainy day outfit? Comfy PJs, a hot mug of Colombian Milo and TV remote GRIN
