Rainy Days

Personally, I love me a good rainy day (which we've had quite a few of in Edmonton this summer). Especially in a non-humid climate (you know, so my head doesn’t look like one giant frizz ball). For some reason I always feel more productive when it’s a bit cold and rainy out. For example, the day this photo was taken I put in 10 hours at my office (I’m working on a big project and stayed late) and then did 3 hrs of work on my conference paper for this October’s North Eastern Conference on British Studies. I'll be dazzling the crowd with my musings on reconciliation and mediation in early modern England. Get excited!

You're one of the few people I know that loves rainy days. I do love a good rainy day on a weekend when I can curl up in a blanket with a movie, or a thunderstorm while I fall asleep but if I have to leave the house I hate it...hah

I am super duper excited! I can never seem to get anything done when it's raining. I'd much rather sleep or tuck in a read a book!

I'm all about rainy days. Yesterday was pretty gloomy/cool in new york, so I kept the doors open and read for most of the night :)

I'm the total opposite. If it's cold and wet out then I don't want to do anything. But I love being productive on a sunny day.

But I can definitely get excited about that gorgeous necklace!

Love the tweed blazer! Good luck with your project, where is this conference? I'm thinking somewhere in the North East?

The conference is in Connecticut so we're taking a little reunion trip to Yale and then off to NYC for 10 days!

You'd love it here right now! It's been raining a ton. Ha! I can't believe I haven't busted out my wellies yet. Crazy! Love that collar btw!

Hahah, as usual we are the opposite. When it's cold and rainy I'm lucky if I even manage to get dressed, let alone be productive.

But at least you've got some good rainboots. maybe if I had a pair I'd feel more encouraged to go and take rainy day outfit photos.
