Rainy day number 3!

According to the latest weather report, we have only 3 days to go. The trash bins around Boston were literally full of broken umbrellas because of the 35 mph wind. I've given up on finding the perfect strong umbrella, in fact, I broke two last month! Actually, I seriously thought of strapping one of those big patio umbrellas around my waist, that should cover it! So I have a rain coat that I hardly wore in the winter because it just isn't thick enough. On a whim moment of not knowing how I was going to survive this rain storm, I thought of the simplest idea, so simple that I don't know why I didn't think of it before: layering a thick sweater underneath my raincoat (ding ding!). This lovely sweater was the perfect choice!

Boston street style

My bag was a bit wet but at least I didn't end up with another broken umbrella! My outfit minus the rain boots when I'm not running for my life out on the street. I love these tights and can't remember where I got them and there is no tag. Sadly, I had to part with them today because it started ripping.

Edit: Don't believe my broken umbrella story, check HERE for a picture. It wasn't taken in Boston but this is how it looked like yesterday, x 10!
