Love rain down on me*

Yeah I love rain down on me when I'm  super well equiped!

It's been a non-stop shower over the Paris area this week-end.

So to avoid the uncomfortable sensation of wet hems and be able to carelessly walk into giant puddles forming on the streets and sidewalks, the obvious option was to tuck my jeans into my Hunter rain boots, add a waterproof hooded parka, a crossbody bag allowing me to hold on to the umbrella when necessary.  




( Parka: Gap / sweater: Isabel Marant Etoile / jeans: Zara / Boots: Hunter )

* A beautiful song by Jill Scott the remix by Mos Def is great as well

  1. So jealous of your sweater! After all these years it's still one of my favourite Isabel Marant sweaters. I was never able to get my hands on one though.

    1. I love this sweater too and it took me a long while to get ahold of it. It maddens me that IM does not simply reproduce it instead of making some kind of similar ish sweater every season.

    1. Thanks! Honestly I don't wear these rain boots that much and every once in a while I'm thinking of selling them. The thing is I like having them for these kind of situations no matter how rare they come up. Plus they're pretty cool. Haha!:))

  3. I still check out Vestiaire from time to time for that sweater! I have a pair of the shorter Hunter boots and I've also been wearing them a lot since the piles of snow are now melting and forming slushy puddles everywhere.

    Missy Elliott's 'The Rain' is another classic rain song I feel, lol.

    1. Of course, Missy!! I had totally forgotten about this track. Next post title on rain outfits is secured!

      I'm also in search of a spare of that IM sweater because it shrank up a bit (I stupidly washed it at 40°c once...). I've seen so many copies of this sweater but the original has that right shape/lenghth/color/volume etc. It's a timeless classic.

      I was thinking of getting the short Hunter boots, they're so cute but I already barely wear the tall ones so it would feel like a useless addition.
