Rainy Day Magic

The rain
 keeps on coming down
and I'm beginning to feel like
Mary Poppins
everytime I leave the house!
& bag
all in tow!

My absolute favorite boots in the whole wide world are these stylish super comfy black
 Kelly Rain Boots from Tretorn!
Great with jeans, wool trousers, skirts and of course my trench.
My boots and I would look fabulous stepping out in this gorgeous coat! Oh my gosh I love the whole look. The hair, the handbag, the shades....so classic.
If you know the source please let me know!
This one is not the least bit worried about the rain because Nautical is always in. Love the scarf too!
Love this soft blue grey trench paired with the rust  sweater and satin bow!

I remember when I had wash & wear hair...Those were the days when it was "fun" to be under an umbrella!

This city slicker appears ready to tackle anything on the streets of New York!
 Her trench & dog are pretty cute although
I've never really cared for clear umbrellas. They remind me of shower caps.

I'm old school.  I think umbrellas should be black.
Loving this Alexander McQueen!
I bet Kate likes it too...
This Burberry Double Regent is understated black on top & great for the MR.
And for all of my artistic gardener friends I offer this umbrella bordered with tulips from artist/photographer Harold Feinstein.
 I mentioned Mary Poppins earlier for a couple of reasons. Did you know that when I was five I used to tell everyone that she was my aunt? Yes indeedy!

I shared this with my Australian friend Coty Farquhar last night during a nice long visit via skype.

   She was showing me on Google Earth all around Bowral, the beautiful village in the Southern Highlands of New South Whales where she lives!

 I have always known that Bowral was magical. Coty's beautiful photographs and stories of life in the countryside that she and her family lead are graciously shared with all on her award winning blog, Styling by Coty Farquhar.

She told me the most amazing story about a magical someone who once called the Southern Highlands home...I'll let Coty tell you the story, just click on Mary Poppins & fly away with her to Bowral!
I promise it will be
