    I love that sweater vest! I got way into them when I was in high school, when I had trouble finding button ups that fit and didn’t gape at the bust, haha. The print on that dress is so cute, definitely appropriate for some spirit lifting on a rainy day…if you ever had those! I am seriously missing the warmer weather now, it’s been cold and windy in these parts. Brrrr!

    Oh my god! I love the umbrella print dress and the apple sweater! So cute! :) I need to come to AZ for some sunshine. I am so jealous, you have no idea! And it’s not even December yet!

  3. This is too terribly cute! I love that you did this without any snow or rain! Ha. I especially like the bow :)

  4. This made me giggle. Sorry for making a prompt that makes absolutely no sense to you and your home! ;)

    You did a good job of it, anyway, though. I love that umbrella print. You’ve got to be the cutest.

    I love your mix of pattern so much, you look great. I wish it was in the 70’s here. They said we are gonna get all the water we need in the next 3 days!

  6. Laruen says:

    You look so adorable!

  7. Marlen says:

    Oh salt on my WOUNDS seeing that 70 degrees screen shot. I’d kill to be walking around bare legged and not burrowed under eight layers haha. I love how you improvised for rainy weather with an umbrella print skirt- clever, clever ;)

  8. This is so adorable that print is so cute! I love that your drew a little umbrella in too! I can’t complain much here either when it comes to rain, but snow, I can definitely complain about!

  9. haha, I love that despite living in Arizona you actually own rain boots :)

  12. What fun! Oopsy on the snow day/rainy day prompt! I’m blaming Nicole completely! But you made a good showing, at any rate. Love that dress…LOVE IT! And that apple sweater is pretty sweet as well.

    so jealous.

    love the outfit. sweaters over dresses are the best.

  15. Dorien says:

    This is such a great outfit! I love everything put together; the dress, the vest, the scarf, … I truly wish I had that kind of weather haha. But I guess it would bore me after a while. I kind of love having all seasons! xo

  16. Sarah says:

    love your tall socks and galoshes!

  17. Miki says:

    Hi, Lisa! How have you been? I missed coming here and seeing what you’re up to! ;D Thank you so much for your comment the other day!

    Now, as for your outfit, I LOVE your vest! I’m a sucker for vests (and suspenders). Also, your umbrella is adorable, hahaha! :p

    I miss hot desert-like days! It’s been rainy here in SoCal. I love rain, but it’s not so neat to have to commute in public transportation carrying an umbrella and have to wait under the rain, haha.

    Hope your week’s off to a great start! ;D

  18. Dus says:

    wait is that a real umbrella? it looks like an image! either way I love the addition of it in your picture and you look so adorable! the boots + skirt is perfect for Phx rain (when we ever get it) & the little vest is darling too.

      No- I made it in Illustrator and put it on in Photoshop :) Looks like we’re getting some rain this weekend so I’ll be able to pull the boots out!

  19. This outfit is so cute! I always think over the knee socks looks super sexy :P Hee hee! I love that you have rain boots! I really want some even though I can’t really justify owning them here. I’d probably wear them even if it wasn’t raining though!
