What to Wear: Hurricanes, Earthquakes, & other Unpleasant Weather

In light of the recent earthquake centered in Virginia, and with Hurricane Irene about to roll through Maryland/wreak havoc on the east coast, I just want to share a friendly reminder:

Even during tumultuous weather, you can still remain stylish. And I'll show you how!

It's important to always have effective (sturdy) outerwear to keep you cool and dry from the rain. Here are some of my favorite jackets:

Matinee Trench, J.Crew, $168
I'm loving the chic navy hue of this trench. So perfect for the transition into the fall season!

70's Belted Trench, Asos, $69.52 
On Tuesday, my post was all about this royal blue color for fall. Why not incorporate it into your disaster-proof outerwear? This jacket is to die for! And a fabulous price (originally around $150)!

Barbour Antique Coastal Durham Jacket, Barbour for J.Crew, $399
There's no doubt this will keep you dry in a hurricane. Totally prepared for disgusting weather, while remaining tres chic= win/win situation!

When there's a hurricane happening... It's important to also keep your perfectly polished toes dry! These galoshes make me smile big:

This purple is such a sweet color! I love how Sperry kept the sole and foot portion of the boot black to hide dirt/mud marks-- smart thinking!

You can never go wrong with Hunter. The designs are simple and straight-forward-- and super cute.

I love a little sparkle, especially in my step!

Pink rainboots are the perfect combination of style and sass. Have a little fun in the rain with these :)
If you prefer patterns, I love the idea of a floral paisley. This pattern reminds me of fall with the greens and darker red/orange tones. 

Just for Fun: For Your Furry Friends
Your pets should always be prepared for crazy weather as well, and it's only fair that they're as chic as you are. Two ways to make that happen:

Yellow Raincoat, The Sassy Pup, $40.99
The quintessential yellow poncho. Every sassy pup needs this for rainy days!

For the more active & adventurous pup-- the reflective strip raincoat is a must!  Plus, I'm loving the bright orange (GO CUSE!).
I hope this blogpost helps put some excitement back into the impending crappy weather/hurricane doom! Even when it's gross outside, you can always be fabulous!

Stay dry this weekend, and more importantly, stay safe. According to the news, miss Irene is no joke!



  1. Hunter boots are a must have for rain and snow too, just wear thick wool socks inside. Love those bright pink ones!

  2. I am DYING over that blue trench -- so bummed they don't have it in my size!
