An Outfit For The Summer Rain
Since it’s been raining a lot of the time, pretty much on and off for three weeks straight now, this has been one of my go to outfits. I tend not to take many photos of my outfits in the rain (unless I have new wellies) as it’s usually the same thing over and over, however it was getting to the point that Adam and I hadn’t shot any new photos in a couple of weeks, which just wouldn’t do. Since this is a look I have been wearing so much of, I thought why not share it with you? You all come here to see what what I’m wearing and if a rain outfit is what I’ve been wearing, then that’s what I will show you. So be prepared, this one is nothing special, more of a casual necessity, but if you’re in the UK, you might find inspiration with it.
So what was I wearing? I chose the base as a simple t-shirt and jeans, opting for my Hudson Barbara Skinny Jeans in Hideaway with my H&M White Tee. Since it’s warmer out and doesn’t require a lot of layers, I’m living in my Joules Go Lightly Packaway Parka in Pool Blue Spot here, which I bought quite a few months ago in the store when it was new in. I saw the print on it and thought it was just gorgeous! So much fun to brighten up a wet and dull day. Now for my footwear, obviously wellies are needed, but it’s too hot to wear my full length ones and they aren’t needed when it’s just drizzle, so I chose my Joules Wellibob Ankle Rain Boots in Dog Print, which look really good when you cuff your jeans and wear them cropped.
I’ve been into Joules clothing for quite a while now actually, I tend to wear most of their clothes for my off duty wardrobe, if you can call it that. It’s comfortable and casual and for my birthday I actually went on a bit of a shopping spree there, which I can share with you soon actually if you want to see a new purchases haul. I’m usually a size 8-10 in their clothes, but I took this Go Lightly Packaway Parka in a size 6 as they tend to run a little bit bigger. I wanted it more fitted so that I could wear it with just simple t-shirts underneath as I have lined raincoats for colder days. This raincoat and my Berry Coast one, which you saw when I posted my Salisbury Cathedral photos, are two of my most used ones, along with my Petit Bateau Yellow Raincoat, so I really have a colour and style for each occasion.
I know I often speak about the weather, which is a classic Brit trait, but I do like it when it rains in the summer sometimes because the effect it creates on the floor can be so pretty. It creates a mirrored and glossy appearance, and when you find areas with flowers in full bloom, it brings a whole different vibe to the photos, like with these. Since I was wearing a whole combination of blue and white in my outfit, standing among the beautiful flowers really does give it some more life and vibrancy. Have any of you tried any Joules raincoats? They have a whole Right as Rain collection which I often find myself viewing weekly! Comment and let me know what you think of my rain outfit and if you like the Wellibobs too! What do you wear when it’s wet outside?
