Looking chic in wet weather

Being fashionable is a full time job, and rain, snow, and storms can not stand in your way. Normally I don’t have to deal with much weather, but even I have been subjected to some rather wet days{gasp! In San Diego??} as of late. So rather then let the gray skies bring us down, I say lets celebrate the opportunity to look oh so chic in jackets and boots! Every gal needs a pair of wellies, perfect for pulling over jeans or for the more brave, rocking with tall socks and skirts. They are comfortable, functional and of course available in all types of yummy colors and practically every price point. I love Hunter brand boots, and this pink fuchsia color is perfect for adding some cheer to a raining day.{or a sunny day for that matter!}

Ok, now that your feet are covered lets move onto the oh so important jacket. Trench coats are perfect for pulling together an outfit and giving coverage and warmth without adding bulk. These versatile jackets have been around for ages and are therefore available in just about every color, pattern and price point available. If you are wanting to try something a bit more trendy with the pattern, try this Merona Striped Long Trench which is right on with the nautical trend for spring. I love the cheery yellow and crisp white contrast, and it is a total steal!

Lastly, check out this beauty of a jacket, the Zooey Heavy Fleece Coat. The jacket is full of details, adding loads of fringe and style! The hood is perfect for protecting your coiffure, the big buttons, flared sleeves, and drop waist all add to the awesomeness that is this jacket. This would be perfect with skinny jeans and wellies!

Celebrity Style for Everyday

I love to sport designer clothing and glamorous looks everyday.  However, as a busy mom on the go I need to look fabulous in a hurry most mornings.  For inspiration I have found many busy celebrity moms have turned to trendy jackets and fabulous hats to look fashionable even when they are on the go.

So here is my version.  First, I always wear a trendy jacket with straight jeans and tall boots.  As for the jacket, I  love Zooey’s Bomber Jacket.

This jacket is so soft and comfortable it  feels like a sweatshirt, but looks fitted and trendy and fashionable.  I love the cropped look in back which gives it an added bit of flair.  To keep with the military theme I wear a military style hat but with a different jacket you could wear a trucker or knit hat as well.  Another great jacket example is Zooey’s version of the Pea coat, the Cropped Double Breasted Jacket.  This jacket goes great with that military look.

With this look I can be ready in as little as 15 minutes and not be afraid to run into anyone I know as the grocery store or gas station.  What about you, what is your favorite on the go look?
