It never fails, you have your entire day planned, so many things to do and the weather man says it is going to rain all day. Though you wish you could stay home and get back in bed, the show must go on. You have important meetings that cannot be cancelled due to the rain. Because it rains so much here in Houston, I have learned to purchase durable pieces that are perfect for rainy weather, such as a trench coat. This one is from the Hunter x Target collection that hit stores back in April. If you are not familiar with Hunter, it is a British heritage brand renowned for its tall rubber boots which has since expanded to outdoor wear. This trench is actually a rain coat and the cute orange strips on the sleeves were an added bonus. Add a trench coat to any rainy day ensemble to give it a chic flair while protecting whats underneath at the same time.
I am all about functionality and finding ways to quickly change things up. My pants are yet another Hunter X Target find and I love them for so many reason. One, they are very functional and perfect for the popular athleisure trend that I am a fan of. They are also durable, they dry very quick so you don’t have to walk around soaking wet in bad weather. I paired them with heels to dress this look up for meetings but I totally pack sneakers which can give this look a different, more sporty vibe. The bold orange color looks great against melanin and bright colors are having a moment this season. A rainy weather outfit isn’t complete without an umbrella and this Hunter X Target one was such a cute find. So the next time you encounter bad weather consider it a way to dress up so that you wont feel down. Until next post…ttly
