Rendezvous with the afternoon rain

The other day, out of nowhere I had the notion to pair my polka dotted top with my Zara striped skirt and I quite liked the results. I added a few accessories such as my bunny headband and the pearl bow necklace I've come to love so so much. Also, debuting my new shoes! With the perfect tan colour and cutouts, I just had to get them when I saw them!

Some people might think of rain as a nuisance, but I for one think it's lovely when it rains. I think everything about the rain is romantic, from its smell to its pitter patter sound on the window pane. I just feel like time slows down when it rains and it gives me the perfect opportunity to take a breather from anything and everything that is on my mind. It's like the universe's way of telling you it's okay to stop and just be for a while

P.s. One of my pictures have been chosen for this motel competition. I would give each of you a cookie if you could hop over there to vote for me! Thank you so much.

I love how u paired the stripes and polka dots, Sher! They look great together! The headband is too cute. I'm not a big fan of rain, but I agree, sometimes it could be soothing and perfect for nap time hehe Congrats! Heading there to vote now:)

Such lovely pictures! I've come to appreciate and love rain as it's perfect for sitting in and sipping tea and enjoying a relaxing day. On the flipside, if I have to work or go to school it's a bit of a drag!
Love the outfit!!

Dear Sher, I love the rain too. It's so soothing and womb-like. I love reading and writing to the rain. Your bunny headband is so cute. xx

Rose said...

Well I do love your new shoes! Perfect for spring and autumn.
I must say after today I dont like rain, it has been raining SO heavy allll day long and windy. Although if I hadnt have intended going shopping and instead was planning a day in with Mikey I wouldnt have minded being inside watching the rain.

I also love the rain! I just said to Jon today - I hope it rains, or else I'm going to be in a bad mood!

And the red belt is perfect splash of colour. It really ties the mixed prints together and looks very stylish.
