Rainy Day Style

Sometimes on days when you have the perfect outfit to wear, it rains and can somewhat ruin your planned fashion moment. But, fortunately on these type of days I have learnt to go with the flow of things at all costs.

I have a tulle skirt that I've been wanting to wear for some time, and this was supposed to be the day to wear it, but then an unexpected wind chill rolled in. Afterward, heavy rain showers (that was not on the forecast) happened. 

Suddenly, the notion of twirling in the wind on a winter’s day did not feel like a supreme idea, considering the climate. I was also feeling a bit unwell, so anything other than layered comfort wasn’t going to be on the wardrobe wearing agenda. 
I am still patiently waiting to bring out that special skirt, which will likely happen for a girl’s night or date night. But, I decided to wear these faux leather trousers instead. It’s been a long time since I last wore them, and for the gloomy day that graced us all with its presence, a classic splash of a red, black, and white colour palette was the perfect pairing, in my opinion. It was simple and uncomplicated, style-wise.

And, even though this was my backup outfit, it turned out to be a rather better option in the long run for a happy hour meet up with a friend. After sifting through my accessories and notions trunk (which are thankfully re-categorised now), I added peacock feathers to my hat.

  4. It's a good thing your backup outfit is so cute. The weather does have a way of foiling our fashion plans sometimes.

  7. I think your backup outfit is very chic! I can't remember when was the last time I wore a skirt, it's winter and the rain/wind is terrible for skirt. I'm honestly bored of jeans now.

    It's so annoying when you have an outfit in mind and the weather won't play nicely! Your back-up is gorgeous though, especially those very retro looking shoes! x

  12. Yes I know what you mean! Hopefully the weather will improve cos I'm really looking forward to see your tulle skirt in action. You look amazing anyway. The leggings are so rad and I love the cute hat and the sweater. That's what I love to wear on winter days (with a coat). Wünsch ich dir noch einen wunderschönen Samstag. Ja leider kann man auch mir nur einer Hand online bestellen hahaha. Ich habe schon zuviel gekauft :D

    Have I said before (I surely have) that you always exude classic elegance? And this is no exception. The slightly reflective quality of the trousers even manages to fit in with the sheen of rain underfoot!

  23. Love the leather pants with the animal print jumper <3 The red accessories add a great pop of colour to your outfit! I'm sure the sunny days will be back very soon :)

    Oh, liebe Madison, das kenne ich sehr gut! Ich möchte etwas ganz bestimmtes anziehen, und dann macht mir leider das Wetter einen Strich durch die Rechnung. Aber das Outfit, dass Du statt Deinem sicher sehr schönen Rock getragen hast, finde ich auch richtig toll! Die Faux-Lederhose steht Dir so gut und das Top dazu ist einfach perfekt. Ich wünsche Dir eine wunderbare, neue Woche!
