after rain comes a rainbow

30th January 2013

why should i wait for a rainbow,
when i can wear one when while it’s still pouring?

everyone should invest in one pair of color rain boots (they don’t have to be the expensive-esque hunter ones … mine were $25 rain boots). anyways, colored wellies will really brighten up your rainy day && add the perfect pop of color to our outfit!
a color pop doesn’t have to be a single thing. next time you see yourself drawn to your favorite lbd or a black&&white outfit], try to add not just one, but two (or more) pops of color to your look. it will add an unexpected brightness to your look.

red rain

27th January 2013

i love a rainy day, but i like to do doom&&gloom the color me courtney way by brighten-up with a pop of color

i can’t tell you how excited i was this morning when i woke up to rain, i could only think one thing: polka dot rain boots… polka dot rain boots!!!!
i wanted my new umbrella, rain boots && bow belt to be the stars of this outfit, so i kept the look basic with black to draw attention to these other areas.
 i’ve been wanting heeled rain boots for a while now (because what’s more glam then heeled rain boots?) and stumbled across these perfect, polka dot, kate spade ones (exclusive to saks) this fall. then i fell in love all over again when i opened them christmas morning && couldn’t wait to pair them with my new striped umbrella for a rainy day patterned party.
