Rainy Day Red

Victoria has been rainy and gray for the past few days, and today was no exception. I personally don't mind rainy days, they're a great excuse to curl up on your couch and watch TV all day without feeling guilty! I had a few errands to run today, however, so I had to change out of my pyjamas and into my rain boots!

We decided to take a detour and walk along the downtown Wharf, there's something beautiful about being by the water on a rainy day. The smells remind me of being back on the East Coast and the layer of fog over the water is enchanting.

I am IN LOVE with this umbrella I found at a thrift store here in BC. It's the prettiest vintage umbrella I've ever seen! I love the idea of having a bright coloured umbrella to pop during rainy days. The red of this umbrella is faded the perfect amount and I love the black leather handle and gold accents. All for $1.50? YES PLEASE.

My Hunter rainboots are a huge staple in my wardrobe. I literally wear them year round (I have liners for them in the Winter months) and I'm tempted to get another pair in another color!

I hope you are all having a lovely day, rain or shine!

  1. Hi Hilary,
    You look really cool wearing your Hunter Wellingtons and if you are going to buy another pair there are plenty of funky colours to choose from.
