Mom Fashion: Retro Flares for Rain
- February 25, 2016

Hello my dearies. Yesterday it poured in New York City. With a fun lunch planned with two of my besties, I had to change my outfit plan fast. I said goodbye to the suede boots I had selected, and settled on what you see here.
I love bell bottomed, wide leg jeans and this pair from 7 for All Mankind has been one of my loyal friends. The fun, retro jeans style goes great with fitted sweaters or even a tank top.
With the dark wash jeans, I paired a set of grey, patent waterproof La Canadienne boots, a Club Monaco brown sweater with a 60’s neck, and some oversized faux pink gold dancing hoops.
We chatted, bonded, laughed and swapped stories and advice. The hour and half flew by. As we left the cute French bistro in midtown you see in these pics, I rolled up my pants to dash back home in the rain. My feet and legs stayed dry, and I managed to remain cozy and warm. Not a bad outfit for a day out in the rain.
What is your go to rainy day outfit? Let me know below!
