Rain Rain Go Away

Surprise surprise, it’s another rainy day in Chapel Hill and while I love these kind of days when it’s the weekend and I can netflix binge with my dood (Riggins), they’re not my favorite when I’m getting ready for date night.

This particular outfit is classy, chic, rain resistant, and best of all, comfy, for rainy date nights with Alex.

My mom got me this jacket close to 6 years ago, while I resisted wearing it for the longest time, I finally came to the conclusion that if I’m old enough to wear pointed toe heels (which I’ve been doing a lot of lately), than I’m most definitely old enough for a burberry trench, and I LOVE it. I’m kind of angry at myself for waiting so long to pop the tags. Since it’s so old, I couldn’t find the actual one, but I’ve linked a similar one below!

These leggings are super cozy, less than $20.00, and work just as well as those you’ll find well over $100.

I chose pointed pumps–providing a polished, more dressy look, but I could have easily dressed  down with a pair of converse.  I’ve also linked a few other options that I’m lusting over at the moment.

While the rain can put a damper on some things, I won’t let it ruin a good date night!

As for now, no date planned on this rainy day, but there will be a lot of netflixing and snuggling with Riggins.

Thanks for reading, I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. I know the Tar Heels did! 😉

What’s Inside Says A Lot About Her

Growing up, my mother would scold my brothers and me for peeking inside her purse. “It’s personal!” She’d say, “You never know what you’ll find when you stick your nose where it doesn’t belong!”

I’m not sure that my nose ever found anything worthwhile, but I do know that my hand found an occasional smack–and a well-deserved one at that!

So here I go, breaking one of mom’s cardinal rules, opening up my most private possession for all to see.

Here’s a glimpse of what’s inside my bag of choice, AT ALL TIMES.

Habits I Inherited from My Mom

<Key Chain> My dad will be the first to tell you, I’m the worst at keeping up with keys, this furball is easy to spot and super cute!

<Chanel Wallet> A smaller bag that doubles as a wallet and crossbody–if I get tired of lugging around the tote, I can pull out the cross body and have everything I need!

<Sunnies> The sun never sets on a bada$$, right?

<Hairbrush> My personal favorite is the Keratin Complex Vent Brush.

<Chanel Powder> I love a little shimmer and shine, but not the oily kind.

<Lipstick> L’OREAL’s Infallible color, Geranium is my go-to.

<iPhone> Disclaimer: I’m not a poser, I  ‘Eat Cake for Breakfast‘ more often than I should. Oops.

<Gum> Teaberry is a vintage gum that peaked in the 60s…I love the 60s, so I love Teaberry. (They seem to be frequently out of stock online, but I get mine from Cracker Barrel ;P )

<Perfume> Quelques Fleurs is my all-time fave! My mom wore it all the time, so it reminds me of her.

and finally….

<baby nail clippers> Whether it’s a hangnail, long nail, or a rogue thread, you’ll thank me for this one! Also a habit I inherited from my mom, and it’s foolproof!

I’d be interested to know some of your own bag-hacks and tips.
