Let it rain, let it pour....

Ahhh spring- the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining, the lambs are... well maybe somewhere all that's are happening, but if you're in Newfoundland spring may conjure up more rainy, foggy, drizzly images of the rebirth of nature. In this sometimes dreary season it's easy to get stuck in the ol' jeans and a windbreaker rut, but we say grab your umbrella, pull on the rain boots and let's show spring just how chic rain can be.

Inspirations who don't mind braving the rain:

Humphrey Bogart (Casablanca) has classic downpour style.

Morton salt girl isn't actually dressed very sensibly for the rain, but she's so freakin' cute.

Having great rain wear can really make all the difference in how much you enjoy the wet months. A pair of fun boots, a sturdy umbrella and a cute coat are really a good investment in a climate like the one here in Newfoundland.
Brighten up a grey day with these ideas:

Marc By Marc Jacobs Jacket, Heart Umbrella, Vivienne Westwood + Melissa Booties

For a more classic puddle jumping look:
Fendi Rain Coat, Clear Umbrella, Jeffrey Campbell Boots

For the boys:

Dolce and Gabbana Trench, Burberry Umbrella, Blundstones Boots

1/2 cup dominatrix
and a dash of homelessness

1tbsp of your old neon clothes and shoes (keds?) from when you were 8 years old.

1 cups Neo-Victorian
1 pair of scissors (for cutting off the dress to your thigh silly!~)
1/2 cup of Boho Chic
