Friday's Fancies: April Showers

It's Friday. I'm feeling fancy. So, what time is it in my world? You guessed it.. it's time for Friday's Fancies! This week's theme is centered around April showers. We all know those lovely showers are bound to happen, so we might as well be prepared. And of course, we want to be prepared in style. Now let's say for instance, that I had limitless funds to purchase gear to weather the rain in (pun intended). Here are a few of the items that would definitely be hanging out in my closet:

Rain Wear


The trench coat and boots are both from Burberry. Since I haven't quite gotten to planting that money tree in my backyard, I will not be purchasing either of these. But hey, a girl can dream, right?! I definitely need a bubble umbrella because it seems like the rain never falls straight down from the sky; it's always flying sideways into my face. I chose the J. Crew turtle earrings because turtles like water (duh.), and I figured if there's anyone who would want to venture out into the April monsoons with me, it's these guys. And Starbucks. It's a no brainer, you guys. If it's raining and you have to go outside, you deserve Starbucks. Remember that.

If you ever want more info on the looks I put together, you can just click on the little link under the picture and you'll find everything you need! Or email me. I like emails.

What are your fashionable rain gear secrets??

(As a sidenote, xoxo, me now has a facebook page. If you wanted to "like" it, I would not be mad about it.)

Great idea to include the Starbucks — a definite necessity for any rainy day. :) Also, I love that you found turtle earrings! I am OBSESSED with turtles. (Just check out my Pinterest!)

P.S. - My blog has a FB page, too! We can be FB blog friends. :)

Those bubble umbrellas are adorable! A definite must! I keep entertaining the idea of purchasing a Burberry trench. Granted they're so expensive, but that little fashion loving, wallet hating, voice in me keeps saying "it's an investment" haha! Great post, hun! xo, Megs

Allison @ In the Queen City said...

I've been wanting a clear umbrella!! They are so cute but I never see them in stores. Adorable outfit!

Allie said...

Ummm please give me both Burberry items, thanks. I could use this entire outfit today since it's wet and gloomy outside --> boo.

Have a great weekend doll!

xx, Allie

the things i would do for a Burberry trench!

Amanda said...

Absolutely love the umbrella!

Sara B. C. said...

Oh, gosh, I almost forgot that spring doesn't only mean warmer temperatures, but rainy days too! I just WANT that umbrella. It's perfect for the windier rainy days when average umbrellas are useless!

By the way, I’m hosting a giveaway in my blog: a very unique totebag from Romerobags. Feel free to participate in http://diaryofamoderndaylady.blogspot.com/2012/03/modern-day-lady-first-giveaway.html . Good luck!

Yes, Burberry is definitely on my dream list too! I love the bubble umbrella and I totally agree that coffee is a must :)

Alyssa said...
