Rainy Day Blues

Don't be confused, the title of this post is only called Rainy Day Blues because of the color I am wearing today. The sky may be moody, but I am not. I absolutely adore rainy days, in the spring particularly when everything is saturated with color. Pippin and I went out for a walk in the wet this morning and we matched in our blue. Yes, he has a blue rain coat. Yes, it is adorable. I have a blue rain coat too! I don't mind mine as much as Pippin minds his.


I was drawn to this cardigan of my mine today and decided to try for a slight monochrome style. This cardigan is one of my favorites with such a vibrant color,  soft comfy cable-knit, and pretty buttons. But for some reason, I don't find myself wearing it very often. It certainly fit my my needs today — I am all about the comfy. I've spent the majority of my day curled up with this book; I picked it up this morning and am having trouble stopping! It is the perfect story to read next to a rainy, stormy window. Thanks, sister, for letting me borrow it (among others). It is rather enjoyable. I might add that I did not match my book on purpose. It was sitting near as I was taking these pictures and when I realized we were color-coordinated, well, I couldn't resist.

Please excuse the tiny level of fuzz in these pictures. It is due to using the front-facing camera on my iPhone, which is much easier to use (because you can see yourself) when you're using a self-timer on your phone to take outfit pictures. Oh front cam fuzz. I'm thinking I may need to invest in a remote. Hmph.

Here, have a picture of Pippin in a raincoat. What a ham.
