Outfit of the Day: Fall Temps + Rain



Wednesday I wore this outfit to class. I had a rough start to the morning, so I was especially thankful that I had laid out what I wanted to wear the night before. I prepacked my breakfast, lunch and a snack to eat while I'm on campus because I'll be in class or working from 8-9 and 11-5:15. I grabbed my FABULOUS pink and green Palmetto Tervis Tumbler (HOW COMPLETELY PERFECT is that, I mean come on!) on the way out. 

I've written a lot about how I like white long sleeve T-shirts, and here's a prime example. You really cannot go wrong with wearing them in any look (unless you own the same brown/yellow/pink/cream floral printed J. Crew Outlet skirt that I cannot seem to find a top to wear with). I paired them with navy shorts (ask my friend Skyler about how much we love navy shorts...especially for guys. Y'all need to invest in a pair ASAP. And start reading her blog--shameless plug SEC.) The scarf is from the Merona section in Target, and I got it for $12.99. It is so pretty and it's pink, green, blue, purple, with some paisley print, and I really like it. I wore platinum Jacks with it and massive pearl earrings that I have. It was a nice look and kept me cozy while the weather starts to pick up.

Notice that I also said that it rained today. And yesterday. And the day before that. And the day before that. No joke. We haven't had rain for 3 or 4 weeks, and now we can't escape from it. It's so humid out that the "no sweat" Tervis Tumbler is sweating. Only in South Carolina, I'm convinced.  Going back to the rain though, I always wear 1 of 2 pairs of Jacks when it rains. I have a black "tour" pair and my platinum "wear-with-everything-it-doesn't-matter-where-you're-going" pair. The platinum ones, as I'm sure you remember have been to two proms, on tours, in the rain, in several dorms, to Five Points (any USC readers...Rocco's and Saloon made them sticky.), to Williams Brice Stadium, in many states, submerged in a pool, and still make it. The sides are losing a little bit of the color, but you know, it's from standard wear-and-tear (see above list). I love those Platinum Jacks, and I will never throw them away. They deserved to be dressed up yesterday!

Hopefully this rain quits soon and we just have wonderful cozy sweater and jeans weather. I can feel that it's on it's way! I'm ready with arms wide open!

Your post made me laugh - as I sit here reading this (in VA) my tervis tumbler is sweating because it's super humid here today as well. And I also have a pair of platinum jacks that I love to wear in the rain because they have been through everything!
