In the Pouring Rain

In the Rain 1 In the Rain 2 In the Rain 3 In the Rain 4 In the Rain 5 In the Rain 6
Wearing:
Forever 21 sheer blouse
Topshop doberman motif sweater
Joe's Jeans
Burberry rain boots
Burberry watch
Topshop wool cloche hat
Vintage purse
Mac lipstick in "rebel"

Over the years, I've come to love the rain (and all other temperamental weather).  I used to be the summer-only type of girl.  My personality would shift in colder weather.  I'd become more reserved and shy.  I would even stutter sometimes!  Then when summertime came rolling by, I was the complete opposite.  I'd blossom into a social butterfly.  Now, I'm happy to report that I'm exactly the same in all weather.  I'm perfectly happy when it rains just as much as when it's a sunny day.

We spent the entire day in rainy Sebastopol the day these pictures were taken.  As much as I love the rest of Sonoma County, Sonoma itself takes the cake for its beauty during a storm.  There is something about Sonoma in gloomy weather.  The Valley transforms itself into some sort of fairytale setting.  The oak trees come alive, glowing with neon green moss against the gray skies.  Their long, intricate branches are exaggerated in the light gray background.  And the vineyards look just as magical in the fog or rain.  These pictures don't do it justice.

Hope you guys have a great weekend!  Thanks for reading :)

  12. I couldn't agree with you more, Azu. Our county is beautiful when it rains! It always reminds me of Interlaken, Switzerland; green, lush, and low hovering clouds that make everything feel magical.

    I love your outfit! Your hat is absolutely perfect; it suits you wonderfully.

    We should hang out!
