Rainy Days and Sundays

I went to the Seattle Center with my hubby recently. It was pouring all day and we almost didn’t leave the house. But if you live in Seattle and don’t go out in the rain, you might wait 6 months to get out! So we went for it.

Here’s an example of how faux leather boots are a better choice than the real deal. These leather-look boots are practically rain gear. They look cute and they’re totally waterproof.

Umbrella: Hubby’s
Cape: Target
Brooch: eBay
Jeans: Goodwill
Boots: MIA via Amazon
Purse: Crystalyn Kae

I wore a cape, not a raincoat so I had to use an umbrella. Most people in Seattle skip umbrellas. We’re usually well equipped with our jackets and hats and we just don’t bother. Plus, the rain is often barely more than a mist. And while it goes on and on, it’s not heavy enough to warrant an umbrella.

I like the buildings in the area. Between painted murals and post-modern architecture, you almost won’t mind the rain.

  3. Oh I have to disagree about umbrellas in Seattle! They can be a fashion statement as well. 🙂 I have quite a collection and enjoy matching them to the outfit….

  4. Fantastic photos! I love the one with you under the umbrella! The contrast of your ‘drab’ umbrella and shades of gray/black apparel with the vivid, colorful backdrop is terrific! Great pose and framing. I love the gray cape with jeans and boots.
