A Rainy Day Post

It poured today... like torrential downpour/ monsoon season... It was insane.
I know for a fact that it rains a whole lot in England, so I need to go there prepared for the weather.
I already have a pair of Black Wellingtons. They are a necessity, especially when there are flash floods and mud all over. They make me invincible!
Sperry's Pelican Tall Rain Boot :
The ones I have are very similar to this. I like mine a bit better because they have two sets of gold buckles, which make them not so four- year - old puddle jumper and dress the boot up just a little bit. I love them! I am bringing them with me to England, I do not care how much space they take up in my luggage.
I like to wear legwarmers and tight pants with my rain boots. They make me look cozy and actually help my boots fit better.
Hunter  boots are also good quality and very popular right now. A girl in my hallway has bright teal ones, which I love. They brighten things up on rainy days.
How appropriate!
The obvious rainy day necessity is a good rain coat. You have to try on and test out a rain coat before you buy it. I learned the hard way. I love the rain coat I have right now, but the hood flies off my head and I have no way to make it tighter. I usually end up holding it over my eyes so that rain does not make me blind or get my hair wet. It is a pain. I am on the lookout for a new rain coat, preferably something bright.
The North Face has a great selection of bright, good quality rain coats. They are a bit expensive, but they are so durable. It is definitely worth it.


This is the one that I am thinking about getting. The colors are gorgeous.
Rainy weather is not my favorite, although walking through the monsoon today made me feel like I was on an adventure. A perfect rainy day outfit can make a day like today so much better. Especially when you are kept warm and dry.

I just found out that I was accepted to study abroad in London next semester! I am so happy and excited. I also get to go with one of my best friends. Thank God, I would be really nervous to go without her.
With all this excitement, there is also fear. I'm a little scared to go that far away. I went to England when I was in middle school, but this experience will be totally different. I will be actually living there for three months. What a great opportunity! I hope to get an internship while I am there. I will be taking four to five classes. I plan to travel all over Europe while we are there.
I am aiming to go to Morocco for a day. I also want to go to Italy, Ireland, Scotland, France, and Austria.
I saved my money all summer... so I plan to go everywhere and see everything! I do not want to have to worry about money while I am there. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I plan to take full advantage!

hi-lo dayyy

This is my best friend Emily! Her and I decided to wear our hi-lo skirts to class today (actually, they're both mine. but I let her borrow one).
I adore my skirts. They're so easy to pair with anything! They look very elegant as well.
I tried out my Dr. Martens (which were given to me by my best friend Amanda's grandmother). I was nervous about wearing them because I never see real people wearing them. But today I took a risk. I think they looked alright with my outfit... however, they gave me horrible blisters! I wore thick socks too... they are comfortable besides the part that rubs against my ankle. I guess they are just not good shoes for walking. I still love them though. I will be wearing sandals for the rest of the day.
