Rain,Rain Go Away….

Posted on: March 24, 2013

I am continuing on with the remix challenge and carrying over one item from the day before.  I like this challenge a lot as it makes it very easy to choose an outfit.  I always have one piece as my jumping off point… A reminder of the previous day’s outfit….


We had nothing but rain all Sunday, so taking photos meant an outing… I haven’t gone out for a photo shoot since winter temps hit…I headed to a local bank that has a nice covering overhead to protect and flower beds to stand in…


You can’t see my carry over item in this pose, but had to show off my trench coat… this is my first one purchased 3 years ago from Sears.. I call it my statement one, as the others are all solids.. I think it works nicely with this outfit and it matches my umbrella.  Yes, little things make me happy…

IMG_2773The reveal without the trench coat!  As you can see, I kept the sleeveless shell from the previous day’s outfit.  I love the pinks and yellow together, it defies the grey rainy day!  You can’t see very clearly, but these are yellow gingham checked jeans from Diane Gilman… I may have gone overboard in my love for these… as I have them in three colors for Spring… They are currently sold out, but when they were originally over $50 jeans that I picked up on clearance for just $10, I couldn’t help buying in multiples.. Might as well confess that I have multiples of every item I have on… I have a duplicate sweater in Navy with black trim, the blouse in another print of blues and greens plus two solid colors and I have those Aerosoles ballet flats in black…

Dear Readers, If you find great bargains do you ever buy in multiples as I do?  I don’t think there is anything wrong with multiples,but am glad that I have lots of varieties as well.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the week ahead and any preparations you may have for Easter.  Come back tomorrow and see what I carried over from today’s look…

Linking up with Visible Monday And Monday Bloom, so go take a look at other lovely ladies!

Gratitude:  I am grateful that I found the energy to run out for the photos as I am having sinus trouble and running a low fever.. I am grateful to my husband for taking today’s photos.. I am grateful to my husband for making a wonderful London broil dinner for us all Saturday when my fever was high and I was napping.. I am grateful for a phone call from my daughter away at college to share her snowfall with us through Skype.

You are a blogging trooper to get out in the rain for these great pictures! Love that trench coat, as well as the pretty pinks that make up today’s look. Thanks for sharing it all with Visible Monday : >

I am so sorry you are feeling bad and hope you get better soon. I love the first outfit…skirt is so cute! Take care of yourself!

I absolutely love this yellow and pink ensemble, Tracey! It makes you happy to wear and I feel happy just looking at it too. The trench is so cute with it also. I have yellow jeans and I just feel and extra lightness in mood when I wear them. I worn mine with pink too which makes it a extra feel good outfit for me. 🙂

Yes, gotta love the yellow and pink color combo!

Hi Tracey!
I really like the last outfit; the colors are spring-y happy and cheerful.
I found your blog on Patti’s visible Monday. Its a lovely blog.

Thank you, I love wearing cheerful colors on rainy days..

Visiting from Visible Monday because I love that pink cardi and top. Then when I saw the other pictures, I was blown away by that trench coat – too pretty!

Yes, I do buy multiples sometimes, usually a blue/green version and a red/pink version of the same thing. It’s so handy! Now I try to thrift, mostly, so i don’t end up with multiples so much, just lots of odd, fun things!

Thank you so much for your comments. Buying at thrift stores is a great way to cut down on buying multiples.

You are a dedicated blogger to venture out in the rain! I love the skirt in your first photo and the trench is so fun. It’s perfect for a rainy day 🙂 Heather

That trench is SO gorgeous!!! I love it!

What a beautiful, cheerful combo of yellow and pink!

I sometimes get multiples, but only when there are multiple colors I really love which rarely happens.

Love that raincoat! Cheery colors. I do tend to purchase multiples of shoes and other timeless basics if they fit well.

I love that bright jacket! We don’t have rain here, we have snow. I want it to go away too! As for buying multiples, I sometimes wish I had, but usually don’t.

I love it, love it, love it! I would wear every single piece you have on, especially the raincoat. If I find something that fits well and is not likely to go out of style in the next five minutes I do buy multiples.

Thank you! Good point about the multiples being best for items that won’t go out of style quickly…

I love that umbrella. I’m always on the lookout for fun rainwear, living in Vancouver. The rain coat, the pants, the shoes, love it all.

GreatI love the pink flats. concept you’ve got here.Agreat way to make good use of what you have.

What a fun process … you do this well, and look lovely in the process. Particularly love your minty rain outfit. Wishing you sunshine (but don’t forget your sunblock!)

I’ve kept my youthful skin because I use hats and sunblock…. thanks for commenting…
