I can't tell the world how much I love rain. So why would I choose to move to Austin, TX? Because I hate cold more than I love rain. Arkansas tends to be floodishly rainy in the fall and spring, so last year I ordered these green Hunter wellies from J. Crew, since I was essentially wading into work everyday after the academic year started. Much to my chagrin, I discovered after they arrived that the sizes were done in mens, not womens. So they are about two sizes too big, but I was too lazy and too cheap to exchange them, so now I wear them with thick socks and have room for tea parties in the toes.
The rain that came down ALL DAY LONG on Tuesday was a huge treat, so I didn't waste the opportunity to go stomp about in my wellies.
Poor Lennon had to stand in the rain to take my picture as I hid under an overhang. Photographers should get the same credit that mailmen do.
On to the outfit, which is boringly mono-chro-brandic.
Boots: Hunter via J. Crew
Skirt: J. Crew
Plaid shirt: J. Crew
Black sweater: J. Crew (yawn!)
Tank top: Gap

I wore this to go consume happy hour appetizers and beers at Hickory Street Bar & Grill. What occasion is more special than discounted fried pickles and Shiner!?
