Give me Rain..

It has been raining a lot in the twin cities (Minneapolis-Saint Paul) the last couple of days and while the rain is actually no big deal compared to the snow we deal with in the winter time, It does mess with our plans of enjoying outdoors. However, I do not mind the rain at all; in fact, give me rain everyday, I'm happy with it. I really would love to just lay under the blanket on a rainy day though but on a day like today when I wore this outfit; I had to go run a couple errands which also included some shopping.

I wore a pair of black flats with this outfit to run around but switched into this heels for this shoot. This BCBG peacock print pumps go so well with the down vest and I love the prints a lot. When I first saw this shoes online, they were sold out everywhere in this print and I tracked and purchased this pair on ebay; It is the only thing I ever bought off of ebay and I think they were totally worth the purchase.

This denim pants are my latest DIY project; It's an old pair of jeans that I purchased from Target a long time ago and I took a razor blade and emery board to it to create the ripped and distressed look. It actually took less than ten minutes to complete the DIY. I am gradually loving the distressed denim trend but I'm glad I did not have to spend a lot getting the look. More DIYs on the way this summer..:-).

Vest, tee and denim (DIY): Target
Shoes: BCBG Paris pumps (sold out in this print) similar here
Bucket Bag: Ann Taylor

  7. I love those shoes and they go perfect with your outfit. My daughter does the same thing to her jeans. Years ago, I used to get upset with her when she would rip tears into her brand new of jeans like that, but now I actually ask her to hook up my old jeans, too. What can I say, I didn't catch on right away, but I really love that look now... :)
