Some of you might have seen on Instagram that I am currently on vacation right now at Canyon Ranch in Massachusetts. The place is beautiful and I am having a fantastic time! I heard, though, that the day I left Richmond, the weather became beautiful. Figures that would happen….it rains all of May until I leave the state, then the sun comes out. These pictures were taken a couple of days before I left on a day where it was raining off and on. I’ve had my rain boots and trench coat by the door the whole month so when I need to run out, I can just grab them and go. When I needed to head out for errands and lunch on this day, it was during an off time so there was no rain; however, it was still really muddy out so I was glad to have my boots!
This black dress is one of my favorites to throw on because it is so comfortable and versatile. I wear it in so many different ways and throughout all of the seasons. For this chilly, rainy day, I wore it layered with a cardigan, rain boots, and a trench coat. Trench coats are so practical for rainy days, but they are also stylish. This one, from Banana Republic Factory, has gotten so much use this month…and the best part is, it looks equally great with a pair of rain boots or a pair of heels. The timelessness and versatility of a trench makes it a wardrobe staple that every woman should own. This one I’m wearing is currently 50% off, so if you’re in the market for a new lightweight trench, this is a great choice!
