February Rain

February 25, 2013

Club Monaco coat, sweater & hat, H&M pants, Hunter boots

Guess what this week’s forecast calls for? Rain today…rain tomorrow…rain on Wednesday…and then rain for the rest of the week! Fortunately, I only had one day of rain while away at my cabin over the weekend (the sunny pics are being saved for later this week, when I’ll need a happy, sunshine-filled reprieve from the grey skies we’re expecting), the day these pics were snapped.

And even with a little rain, I really was in such a great mood that I wasn’t all too affected by it. As I mentioned last week, I have some great news…I landed a wonderful job at a company I’ve always admired and loved a lot! Today is my first day and I am ecstatic to kick things off.

What’s more, yesterday was my five year anniversary! It was so nice to just relax and spend time together at my cabin…especially now with the new job, I have an extremely busy next couple of weeks on the horizon, so some downtime together was just what we needed. I made a silly little video documenting some of the things we love to do best while on the Sunshine Coast: walk along the ocean, go for night walks, go for drives, etc etc. Hope you guys like it!

    Aw, happy anniversary you two. The video is adorable and I love your laid-back + rain ready look. Gorgeous!! Ugh, and the rain. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a mid week break from it. Lastly, congrats on the job can't wait to hear more about it. xo

    Congratulations on the new job! Consider the rain good luck. 🙂 I like the pants too – very fun. I also recently tried patterned pants (post will be up later today)….it's a fun look! How else do you plan on styling yours? I'm a bit at a loss of how I can get some more mileage out of my super fun (but very bright) patterned pants.

    Happy anniversary to you and Matt, pally – can't believe it's already been five years, mainly because that reminds me of how long it's already been since our first blogger meet-up. Crazy! And congratulations on the new job, especially if it's what I'm thinking of… you definitely deserved to have a little luck cme your way! But either way, can't wait to hear all about it. Miss you!
    PS: Oh yeah, and on a fashion related note, I'm loving the way the neutrals in this look let your printed pants shine.

    I think I actually miss the rain. How about I trade you some snow for a bit of rain?

    I have a pair of printed trousers in my wardrobe which I fell in love with at the store but have been too conscious to wear it outdoors. You have inspired me!
