dressing for the weather (which means rain!)

if you live in seattle, or the surrounding area, then you know
all anyone is talking about is this darn weather. it may seem 
silly (or trivial, perhaps?), but we haven't had a break
 from the rain in weeks. sunshine, where are you?

i know i am feeling a bit vitamin d deficient, and fellow 
bloggers, you can relate to this - it is incredibly difficult to take 
photos during a downpour. unfortunately, photos taken indoors
rarely turn out for me #bloggerproblems
my dear friend, jenn and i decided to brave the rainstorm 
last weekend to photograph a few looks. we may have had to dry out
 after and opted to enjoy lunch (and dessert, of course)! 
hopefully you can't see my 
large goosebumps or the water spots on my jacket.
dressing for the ever-present rain has become my morning
dilemma: black rain boots? grey rain boots? and which
black jacket should i wear? the long one? or the longer one?
this mantra goes through my head each morning, and 
let me tell you, i am about ready to throw away everything
black and waterproof! this girl wants to embrace spring and all
that accompanies it: dresses sans tights, everything pastel, sunshine, 
and even the new 'seasonal cup' at starbucks.

dress: loft (similar here), jacket: nordstrom rack (similar here),
necklace: nordstrom, ring & shoes: forever 21, purse: stitch fix

any tips or locations you have for taking photos
during bad weather are greatly appreciated! preferably, 
places that are covered (to protect clothing and cameras, 
and to prevent hair from becoming too wild). i am hopeful that our weather will
 soon improve so i can pack up my heavy sweaters and coats and wear 
lighter, more colorful pieces
in celebration of spring. until that happens, i'll continue
lusting after the adorable spring clothing in all the storefronts
and beach / vacation photos via pinterest.
xoxo.
