What to Wear When it Rains: Rainy Day Style

It's raining in Houston today, and although there's nothing I want more than to be curled up in bed, I have to be at my internship for school. So, I put on some of my go-to threads for rainy day style, drove in town, and got to work.

I can be pretty obsessed with certain brands when I find things I love from the brand. I've been loyal to Madewell and J.Crew for years, but once I discovered Everlane, I've been hooked. Everlane is an ethical clothing company with chic, modern clothing, and this trench coat is the perfect fit for rainy day style. It's lightweight, comfortable, and will definitely help in keeping me dry.

For shoes, it really depends on how much walking I do. At my internship, we have covered parking, so there's no need for full on rainboots. If I were having to walk, I would go with my rain boots, but it has to be pouring. Let me give you reference on how often I wear them. The last time I wore my rain boots was during Hurricane Harvey, and it's rained in Houston since.

The shoes I'm wearing here are actually the first item I purchased from Everlane. The Modern Babo has been one of the most interesting and most complimented additions to my wardrobe. These shoes obviously began my obsession with Everlane. They can be worn with the back of the shoe up or down, making them go from a chic flat shoe to mules. I'm wearing them as Mules here.

The tote I have here is, hands down, my favorite tote. I got it from Nisolo, a brand in Nashville that sources ethical textiles for their products. Although this exact bag isn't sold anymore, the Lori tote is similar. This bag is the same price as the Transport Tote from Madewell, just ethically made. I use this bag on a regular basis, great for school and work.

My ultimate goal for rainy day style boils down to three things. Easy to wear, comfortable, and stylish. For me, this outfit checks all three of those boxes and helps me tackle my day with style and functionality.

  • If I were to pick a favorite outfit of the week, it would probably be Tuesday’s. The office I work in gets really cold, so even though it’s in the 70’s in Texas, I have to dress warmer for work. Anyone else work in an icebox? ❄️

  • Is it bad that I kind of want it to get super cold again so I can wear this coat? 🙈 I got it at a vintage shop in Deep Ellum called @fleastyle. It’s been in the 70’s all week in DFW, which means it’s officially time for me to switch my closet over to spring. Would y’all like to see a post on the blog about switching over your closet? Let me know in the comments! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Sooooooo I didn’t get the chop... yet! Why? Because this was my first time having a new stylist cut my hair in about 10 years. I would have gotten it cut before I moved, but I didn’t realize how bad of shape it was in! How long have you gone to your hair stylist? 
I highly recommend Liz at @metsalonco in Plano! She completely understood and put my fears at ease. I’ll be seeing her again in a couple months to do something a little more drastic! 😉

  • Should I cut my hair short? Leave a 💇‍♀️ or 🙅‍♀️ in the comments! .

I have a hair appointment tomorrow and I’m trying to decide if I should keep it long or get a lob. .

  • Yesterday, I DELETED over 500 😱 followers from my Instagram, and I’m SO HAPPY I did. I took the suggestion from another blogger, @austentosone, to go through my followers and check for spam accounts. I thought I’d have a few, but y’all, it was out of control. •

I really care about community. I create content not only because I love creating things, but because I love sharing them with people who are also interested in sustainable fashion. I want this to be a space where we can talk about ethical and sustainable fashion. A two way conversation. I want my blog to be a resource for people who are seeking a new lifestyle. What are some questions you’ve had about ethical and sustainable fashion? Let me know in the comments below! •

If you’re a fellow influencer who is struggling with comparison and just keeping up with the rest, you’re not alone. Know that your value is NOT found in a number. You are loved. You were created with a purpose. Don’t lose sight of that purpose by focusing on a number. •

Today on the blog, I’m sharing why I deleted all those followers and more about my intention for MINIMALISTA.
  • Who else is happy it’s spring? 🌸
Confession: I still haven’t switched my closet over. My parents are coming to town this weekend, so I’m going to wait until after their visit to switch over. 🌷
Because I still haven’t unpacked my spring clothing, this is a #tbt to my trip to NYC over Labor Day. This top is the Texture & Thread brand at @madewell, and it will definitely be featured again this spring! While this exact print isn’t available anymore, there are some solid ones in beautiful colors. Both of the tops I did find at Madewell are under $40! #LTKunder50 🌼

  • What is one item you have in your closet that you consistently use? Today, I’m wearing this top I got 7 years ago for spring. It’s amazing how long clothing will last when you take care of it! 
But aside from this top, I don’t have a lot of spring/summer clothing. So yesterday I shared 8 items on my wishlist for spring! You can check that out by going to the link in my profile.

  • What do you wear on days where the weather can’t decide what it wants to do? In Dallas today, it’s 60 degrees but gloomy and rainy 🌧 so we can’t go out and enjoy. 
I’ve had this tote from @nisoloshoes for three years now and it’s still the best bag I’ve ever purchased. The exact style isn’t available anymore (the Joann tote), but I’ve linked the Lori tote which is similar! Plus, with @afterpayusa, you can purchase ethically while being a bit easier on the budget!
