ALL IN THE DETAILS: Spring Training

They say April showers bring May flowers, and with all this rain, I better see some gorgeous flowers. It’s no secret rain makes people want to curl up in bed and do nothing all day, am I right? Netflix in bed with some tea and some comfy pajamas. But if you do make it out of bed, you never want to look presentable; heck, it’s raining! I know I wish laying in bed all day was a possibility, but being in college, there’s no way that’s happening. We all might as well make the most of our day, not only by what we accomplish, but also by what we wear. Stay with me here, I know getting dressed on a rainy day is tough, but you know you feel like you can conquer the world in a good outfit. So whatever needs to be done, wherever you need to go, dress like you want to be there.

This Fashionista’s outfit is absolutely perfect for these spring showers. Rain boots are great for gloomy days because you can walk through anything without worrying. Puddles? No problem. Splashed by a car? No problem. Tall boots protect you from the undesirable weather. They’re easy to slip on and go with pants, skirts and dresses. Rain boots can, however, be clunky and heavy and just gross. But not these lavender Hunter Boots, these babies are pastel-enough to go with all springtime colors while still giving the right amount of protection. When picking rain boots, make sure to find a pair that fit your height and leg shape. Some people opt for the shorter boots, because the taller ones are just too tall. While others like rain boots that look like other boots, like riding boots. Whatever fit you like, make sure to find a color that goes with everything.

This Fashionista completes her look with a plain khaki skirt, a white eyelet-lace tank and a pale pink trench coat, accessorizing with large pearl earrings and a silver and gold watch. These items go perfectly with the blossoming flowers as well as any rainy day.

How To: Do you have a pair of rain boots, but don’t know what to wear them with? Check the weather to decide whether it’s cold enough for pants, or warm enough for a skirt or dress, then go simple. Let your tall or colorful boots be the focal point of your ensemble.
