"When the sun starts sinking on your beautiful soul."

C & C California top. C & C California cardigan. People's Liberation jacket.
Aerie dress [worn as skirt]. Hot Sox tights. Sperry rain boots. 

Being able to incorporate rain boots into fashion comes in quite handy when you live in the Pacific Northwest.  On days when I really want to avoid puddles, I throw on my Sperry rain boots (find similar ones here).  Not only are they black--making them really versatile, warm (they're lined on the inside), they are also wedges--making them more fashionable than the average pair of rain boots.  On the downside, they are not as comfortable as they are versatile, warm, and fashionable; I couldn't wear them all day unfortunately.  However, if you're only going out for a few hours and don't want to risk puddles and splashage (no, that's not a real word), I completely recommend these.  They are perfect for being stylish and practical.  I give them a 4/5.

I finally got around to watching Eat, Pray, Love and really liked it.  I'm going to point out the obvious here and say that Julia Roberts is an amazing actress in this memoir-turned-book.  She did a good job depicting Liz, a woman struggling through her life, trying to find both meaning and balance.  The movie was both relatable and inspiring to me.  The scenery is also astounding and makes you want to follow in Liz's footsteps and travel to those places.  It's amazing the amount of courage Liz Gilbert had to drop everything and leave in search of change.  I give the movie a 4/5 contrary to most other reviews I read.  I think most people were dissatisfied with how the movie depicted Liz's journey in comparison to the book, and I am definitely inspired to go read the book--which might change my rating, but we'll see!

I've seen eat, pray, love twice. I feel asleep the first time probably because I did not have sleep and was wide awake for 24 hours. I love the movie and it's message. I just wonder on myself if I can do what she had done.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. :)

Great outfit!! Love the rain boots they are very stylish and go right with the outfit. I wish I had some right now they would be perfect for the unexpected blizzard I woke up to this morning...grrr.

Anyways, thank you for the lovely comment I have missed you as well. I was on Christmas break from school and got out of routine but I'm back! Glad to know your still stopping by!! Oh and your probably right, the launcher is probably to gain more distance-I was just so stuck on the idea of it basically being ones arm.

I love your rainboots! I'm also in a rainy climate, so good rainboots have suddenly become very important to me. I love the toughness of the jacket with that tutu type skirt!

I think it is so funny that rain boots are so fashionable now. They are just a necessity of life out here...and now they are in style, too! Perfect! And yours look wonderful with the skirt.
