If you’re on the east coast, most likely you’re dealing with rain or snow today. It has been raining since I got up this morning. My day so far has been me, the laptop, and the dog browsing the J.Crew website, a dangerous past time. I know this won’t be the last rainy day this winter, so I wanted to share my picks for enjoying a rainy day.
As much as I love the matching sets in theory, they never translate into me wearing them. Instead, I buy incredibly comfortable bottoms to wear with an oversized tee. It’s just how I roll.
I am in love with the fancy sweatshirt trend. It’s right up my alley, since I’m always looking for basics with something special.
THREE ~ Wicked cup of cocoa.
Water is usually what I drink all day, but when it’s cold, I like hot drinks. I’d rather drink hot tea, coffee, or even better, hot cocoa all day. This mix is delicious if you’re a chocolate lover. (And I hope you all got the “wicked cup of cocoa” reference.)
FOUR ~ Adorable cup for said cocoa.
These mugs are downright adorable and shaped like the character they look like. Disney has produced a whole series. My sister and brother in law gave us the ones shaped like Wall-e and Eve for our anniversary.
FIVE ~ Favorite movie.
Midnight in Paris quickly became one of my favorite movies after seeing it. It never gets old for me. I love to watch it when it’s raining because Paris is magical in the rain.
SIX ~ Current read.
Often times, rainy days are when I finish a book (or two). This is my current read. If you’re a Disney lover like me, this is one of my favorites so far. You should definitely pick up Walt Disney: An American Original by Bob Thomas.
SEVEN ~ Pamper a bit.
I tend to pamper myself a little when it rains. My favorite thing to do is paint all my nails. Julep polishes are my go to brand and the new neutrals set has perfect essential colors.
EIGHT ~ Big ‘ol umbrella.
Should you have to walk to the mailbox, walk the dog, or, heaven forbid, actually leave the house make sure you have a big umbrella! This J.Crew tartan plaid one fits the bill perfectly.
NINE ~ Rain boots.
Since we’re discussing the possibility of leaving the house (read: jumping in puddles), good rain boots are also essential. As much as I lust after Hunter rain boots, I live on a farm and have to be practical about rubber boot purchases. My cousin showed me that not all crocs look like the horrid ones chef Mario Batali made famous. Their rubber boots wear well and I highly recommend them!
What are you doing on this rainy day?
