little red in the rain

lace dress: bcbgeneration, coat: h&m, boots: hunter

Confession: I hate wearing rain boots. They're clunky and heavy to walk in, and they squeak when I fidget in my seat. Not to mention they have the amazing quality of chopping my stumpy legs into looking even shorter. What really perplexes me? Fashion bloggers who wear Hunters WHEN THERE IS NO REASON TO! There's no rain, snow, or mud. So why? Put on a pair of black riding boots, home girl. 

But, they are a necessary evil for those rainy days when having muddy water splashed on my legs isn't really on my agenda. And these glossy black ones are shiny. I like shiny, said the magpie. As an avid reader of Atlantic-Pacific, I was inspired to wear a dress with my rain boots. Her ability to dress them up and accessorize properly is matched by no other. But then again, Blair is basically in a league of her own all around. 

Also, I can't say I wore this in honor of tonight's Pretty Little Liar's episode... since this outfit is from last week, but I can say it is being posted in honor of the summer finale!!! Will we finally find out who red coat is?!?! Are we to assume it is Cici?! Who knows?! I mean, as any PLL fan will know, if we get any answers this will only open up another can of worms worth dozens of new questions. Seriously. 



  1. these pictures are so so cute! i absolutely need a pair of hunter boots, but i do agree wellies make my legs look so short and gross ughhh you look really good in them though

  4. i really love the boots and the pics too! they're amazing :)

  5. I love this outfit! I want those items in my closet please :)

  6. Red is gorgeous on you! :)


  7. You always look so sweet and pretty and red is my favorite color, so what can I say? It looks amazing on you! I know what you mean by the need or not of wearing the Hunter boots, or any other item... many bloggers do this! denisesplanet com

  8.'re right about rain boots. While I do own a pair of Hunters (have actually owned them forever...before bloggers took off with them...not to say that I'm so on point but to say that I considered them more practical than anything else haha)...I don't wear them aside from the winter/rainy season. I think they can look great as an accessory but find it difficult to wear when it's not raining. Like you, I think "why?" I'd much rather wear my cuter shoes! haha

  9. I love throwing a piece of red something into my outfit, weather it's an accessory or clothing! You look darling <3

  10. totally agree with you re: your hatred for Hunter boots. But you sure class em up here! The pop of red is awesome.

  11. Hahaha I wear them out but if I waited for snow or storms and muddy stuff they'd never see the light of day since we never get any of that goodness in Australia :o(

    i think you look cute in your hunters, i have never worn mine with a dress before. i barely wear dresses to begin with, but i love your pretty white one and that bold splash of red complements well.

  14. I'm so in love with your outfit!! Love your lace white dress! The fact that you posted this outfit in honor PLL is awesome! I watched the episode with a friend tonight and OMG! I can't wait for it to come back on October 22! Also, I totally understand what you mean about bloggers wearing rainboots! I feel so weird when I walk in them that I can't imagine doing it when it's not raining!

  28. i have no idea what the red coat is all about becasue i don't watch the show, but I do agree on what you said about Atlantic Pacific and about bloggers wearing them out of the season, haha. I actually wanted to buy a pair of rain boots but they can be pretty expensive so I didn't. yours is cool tho.

  29. Hunters are pretty much a MUST in England. Yes, even on sunny days. Because you just never know when the skies are gonna open and unleash the...erm...drizzle.

  30. I keep forgetting you are from jersey like me! Haha, and yea. I find it interesting seeing people in the US out walking in rain boots when it is perfectly sunny.


  31. very beautiful her coat

  32. This outfit is adorable, and I love Hunter rain boots! I totally need to get me some. Also, unrelated, your blog name is super adorable ha ha.

  33. Never tried wearing rain boots but there's something with it that I wanna try it. You look lovely here! The red coat popped just right! Keep in touch. x

  34. You look quite sweet wearing your Wellies and they look adorable on your legs.

  35. Really lovely outfit! I agree though, why do so many people wear Hunters when it's not really necessary. I do not own a pair, I am four feet ten inches and feel like they make me look even shorter! (as if that's possible!)
