That precipitation

Sweater: Ann Taylor
Pants: Gap
Socks: Walmart
Wedges: Shoe Carnival

Have you ever noticed that it's really rare to see OOTD posts outside in the rain? Snow, yeah! Sun, sure! Clouds, fine! But rain? Not so sexy. For some reason rain seems to be the great equaliser among fashion bloggers--run for cover when it appears, or live somewhere where it doesn't exist at all!

But here's the thing. The inside of my parents' house is even less sexy than rain. I mean whoa this is an unattractive house. Not to my parents' discredit because they've done what they can in the five years we've lived here, but it's a house with no personality. It was built in the 1970s, after beautiful and before postmodern, so there are narrow hallways and few windows and off white trim.

So with all that in mind, envision: your only option for photos is The Great Outdoors. Pretty much stinks when it rains! Especially when you have a really cute outfit planned but you wake up and see that it's raining buckets and you say to hell with it, you're wearing pants and sensible shoes! And on the way home with your man tripod in the passenger seat, you pounce on the only spot you can find. Getting to the sweet spot involved sliding down a hill covered in mud and freezing your tail off for some mediocre pictures under a rooftop with coated metal picnic tables on a concrete pad.

But you had your tripod, so it was worth it! see y'all tomorrow :)
