Rain rain don't go away. You're welcome here. Feel free to stay. Remember how thrilled I was about having a gloomy day here in Southern California? Well, we had several days of actual gloom & rain which meant I finally got to wear the layers that were sitting in the back of my closet gathering dust. I took them out, shook them off & was able to create a rainy day look.
I love the scent of fresh rain on the asphalt. It's a little musky, but you can smell the crispness in the air -- the dirt being washed away like problems of the past. Just don't step in the puddles or else you'll get those dreaded wet socks that seem to stay soggy for hours at a time.
My pretty pink beanie is from my favorite brewery in the world, The Lost Abbey. I like it because it's not obviously a brewery beanie. In fact, it could be confused as some sort of religious symbolism. But if you're local, you'd know. If you're not local, it just looks cool. :]
For this San Diego fashion look I've got a nice blend of cheap-o basics, vintage statement pieces, & name brand favorites. I found this rainbow cropped top at the thrift store & I adore it. The texture, the zig zags, the vibrant color. It absolutely suits me. The brighter the better!

I received the LA9 Vivian Wrap many months ago & it has been a staple in my wardrobe ever since. It's lightweight, easy to style, & cozy as can be. Perfect for rainy day layering. Here in San Diego, we can't even handle the rain. Roads were flooded. Cars were stalled. All courtesy of the May storm that swept through the city.
How do you survive in the rain? Which part of my San Diego rainy day outfit do you like best? :]
