Rainy day

It was absurdly rainy yesterday. (Although yes, we did manage to get a brief dry spell for our photos.) On days like that, I pretty much always wear my rain boots and rain coat. Since a rain coat and boots isn't necessarily an inspiring combination, I tried to make it more interesting with a bright sweater, and a necklace that I've had since elementary school. (Yes, sometimes I'm a hoarder.) These Hunter rain boots are the most worn item in my closet. They may not be pretty to look at, but they're comfortable and they've kept my feet dry for two years so far.

Yesterday I had the final exam for my tax class, and I passed with 94%! Wooo! Now all I need to do is pass the state board exam in December, and I'll be a licensed tax preparer. Even if I don't get a job from this experience, it was worth it just for all the personal knowledge I've gained. My taxes are going to be a breeze after this.

I'm taking the rest of the week off from blogging to enjoy some quality family time, so I'll see you all next week! Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Purple sweater: Target
Red coat: Calvin Klein from Costco
Jeans: Levi's
Boots: Hunter from Nordstrom
Hat: H&M
Necklace: owned since 3rd grade!
Ring: In Pink

  8. I know you've said you are dressing a bit more office appropriate in preparation for your coming job, so I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I LOVE the outfits you are coming up with. As another "I would dress differently if only it were okay at the office", I love seeing how you are keeping your style (bright, bold, retro, quirky) while channeling it officeward.

    (And congrats on your 94% That's fantastic!)

  9. I always feel that rainy days bring out the vibrancy and saturation in colorful things, so wearing red is a smart choice. :D ~ Ruthie
