rain, rain, won't you stay?

Skirt (worn like this) & Top (worn like this)- Thrifted; Pantyhose- Walmart; Shoes & Necklace- Swapped; Bracelets- The Bay; Umbrella- Sakroots (gifted); Nail Polish- Dreamer by Revlon
Usually I'm the first chanting rain, rain, go away but not this time. The dreary conditions meant I could finally test out my new umbrella which was gifted to me by my Aunt & Uncle over the holidays. Besides being colourful and fun, the best part about my Sakroots parapluie is that it's eco-friendly and proceeds go towards supporting the Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees campaign. Now that's one altruistic umbrella if you ask me!



Rain, rain, won't you stay and wash my balcony crud away?

  3. This is so cute and I know what you mean, usually I just want the rain to be done. I really like your outfit, the patterned tights are chic. And hopefully it rains enough to clean your balcony

  10. Oooh, I normally shy away from traditional nail shades, but I'm loving this beautiful blue colour. Altruistic gifts feel extra-special, don't they? That umbrella is the perfect foil for a rainy day (and it looks like there are more in store!)

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
