It’s the end of May and its raining and cold… am I back in PA!? Usually Week O’Nautical is debuting all my new summer threads, but this year its more about finding something functional for the weather.

With the on again off again rain, I had to bust out those red Hunters!  I started there and built up!  Navy Ponte Pants (Avon Kaya Ponte Pant in Navy) because they can be easily tucked into boots and thick enough to not have the wind go right through them.  Then I added a blue and white striped off the shoulder blouse (Kohls, old).  Layered on some of my fav nautical jewelry, a red lip, and I’m good to go!

At least the rain and clouds make a good backdrop.  However, I’m ready for some sun and warmth to actually make it feel like Memorial Day Weekend is around the corner.  Hows the weather shaping up for your weekend!?

Memorial Weekend, I hope you're warm and sunny!

We definitely had some April showers this weekend, which I wasn’t hating on.  It gave me a chance to depart from my LBD and wear some seriously comfy casual pieces this week.

Casual Rain Gear

Layered Rain Gear

As the girl scouts say, always be prepared.  I definitely came prepared with my rain gear and layered essentials.  I paired really comfy black jeggings (Express) with this (old) mark. layered sweatshirt, layered with this (old) mark. anorak.   What better way to be prepared than with some Hunters and a cute umbrella from Kate Spade!?  Sidenote on Hunters:  I hate to say it, they’re actually worth the price.  They’re seriously the most comfortable functional shoe I own, and keep you dry without freezing your feet.

What would life be without a little glam?  All I needed to glam up such a casual outfit is the mark. Clear Choice Necklace.  It’s mix of howlite, pink and blue stones on a clear base added the perfect touch!  I’m seriously obsessing over this necklace!  I finally bit the bullet and ordered it, seriously worth it!
