Under A Houndstooth Umbrella

This is my favorite comfy mohair/angora cardigan (light enough for this muggy weather we've been having) and my favorite (and only) leather boots. They took me over a year to find, and when I did, I splurged. Now they're getting scuffed, comfy, and worn in. I often wear them with a pair of skinny jeans, but felt like this dress needed a bit more added to it as it was raining outside for most of the morning. This whole outfit made me want to sit on a porch swing and look out across ranch land drinking wine - alas, I was inside, at work, listening to someone jackhammer right outside of my office wall. 

Umbrella: Target (similar); Cardigan: American Eagle; Dress: Target; Leather boots: Marc Fisher, Macy's; Necklace: Tiffany & Co.


  1. Sometimes the rain can mean we get to break out the best accessories! Love that umbrella! :-)

    1. like rain boots! i need some new ones, but they're so much fun!

  2. I'm the same way about my riding boots. I pounced when I found them and wear them almost constantly through fall and winter. Good boots are the best and yours are just fab.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
