Preppy in the Rain

The weather in Milan has been very photography unfriendly this past week, so it was time to get creative and start styling around my rain boots. These are very simple riding boots ( bought them on a site specialized in horse riding gear), so they are quite easy to style. In really bad lighting you might even confuse them with elegant leather boots. The slick aesthetic made me fall in love with them.

For a change of pace, this weekend we decided to visit a museum and found out there was a Manolo Blahnik exhibit in Milan. I literally squealed and annoyed my boyfriend into going, God bless his soul for putting up with me. 😹 In case you happen to visit Milan, the exhibit is on until April and I really recommend it. Most of you won't know this about me, but I wanted to be a shoe designer. It was my favorite fashion piece to design and the one I was good at. Anyway, I posted a lot of Insta stories, like always, so in case you don't follow me on Insta, you should. Click here to remedy that. Shameless plug, I know.  

Outfit wise, I'm still incorporating summery pieces in my winter wardrobe. This time pairing a white jacquard dress with a black dressy shirt, tights and rain/riding boots, let's not forget the pearl choker for a touch of edgy elegance. 

If the rain keeps up, you'll be seeing more of these rain boots. It's a fun challenge to show you can be stylish even in unfavorable weather conditions. 

What's your go-to shoe choice when it's pouring rain?

Have a pink-tastic day!
