Still, no rain boots...

Hello Darlings,

It has been raining non-stop for the past few days! Boo... for me rain=frizzy hair, pants, and booties! I am still not a fan of rain boots, but maybe one remotely bizarre day I will begin to warm up to them. However, until that day arrives...I am all about booties! They keep my footsies dry, warm and happy :) When going for booties on a rainy day, remember to spray them with water-repellent otherwise it might damage the shoe.

I never quite understood the point of rain boots as reasonable amount of leather shoes are water-proof. But then again it is completely my opinion and I have see people pulling off rain boots with flying colors!I just have a hard time seeing myself do that.

Whenever I shop was fall and winter footwear, I keep in mind the weather and always look for shoes that are comfortable and water-proof. Also, the thickness of leather plays a great part in the selection. I don't like paper-thin leather as it will get wet and is most likely to crack in cold temperatures. The biggest NO NO for wet weather is SUEDE! I've made a huge mistake  a while a go by purchasing a $600 pair of Michael Kors suede boots for winter.Let me tell you it broke my heart when after a month of wear they looked like garbage! I had to learn my lesson the hard way, so just wanted to make sure that you don't. Because every time I think about the boots, I want to cry.  Although, I adore suede shoes....they are only for dry weather.

Despite the nasty weather, I decided to venture outside to grab some yummy desserts with Andrew and his brother.Since I am quite a bit of tomboy at heart, spending time with the boys is always fun-filled :P I settled for a fun look with pig-tails which have become my latest obsession. Ever since seeing Prada's Spring 2010 show and ads, I was determined that this was the summer of pig-tails! All I need to do is find a perfect berry lip-gloss since red still intimidates the life out of me :P To make the day a little brighter, Marc by Marc Jacobs scarf  added a perfect touch of color.

Otherwise the rest of the look was quite simple, my favorite Talula jacket of the moment paired with an over-sized tee and cropped skinnies. Personally, I love cropped skinnies a lot more than an average pair( at least for now!) because of the way that they display a pair of shoes. No more hiding of shoes, which works for me :)
