friday's fancies #25: justin's rainy day picks.

as i sat down to pull together my friday's fancies post for this week, justin surprised me by asking if he could follow the theme & come up with an outfit to feature. of course i said yes. how could i resist? i'm pleasantly surprised by what he chose.

here's a little secret about me: i love the rain. always have. it's a little bit of excitement - a little change - a little spark - in the weather world. and - above all - it is peaceful. some of my best sleep has been derived from a rainy afternoon, a stormy night.

so when {av} announced this week's friday's fancies theme over on {long distance loving}, i was instantly smitten. here's to plaid umbrellas, sweet galoshes, & trench coats to keep the april chill away.

i can't remember the exact day i began dreaming of burberry umbrellas (and well, basically anything burberry), but i know it was a long time ago. i feel i'd have to exercise major self control not to carry this burberry trafalgar packable check umbrella, even if the sun were shining. the trench coat justin chose, this g-star raw lara, is both functional & elegant, which contrasts nicely with the edgy hunter brixon lace up boots in green that he picked out. there's something about the juxtaposition of that combo & the diamond earrings that i really love. the casual items - the reluxe vintage silk scarf, the etoile isabel marant itzel blue jeans, & the marc by marc jacobs bag - keep the outfit low-key enough for an afternoon jaunt to the local coffee shop. 

all in all, i think justin's choices were inspired.

would you let your significant other put your outfit together for you?

I picked the same umbrella (great taste, Justin hehe!). And I also love the rain, too! Maybe because we don't get much of it in LA.

I totally agree with you on the rain thing! I love rainy afternoons. There's nothing like sitting in my living room, rocking in our big arm chair, with a cup of hot tea, and a good book on my it.

Fab outfit too (^_^)

Have a fabulous weekend,

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
