Well guys, I finally did it. I bought a raincoat! Not just any raincoat, but the cutest one I've ever laid eyes on.
Given that I live in Seattle, you'd think I'd own one or two raincoats by now. Well, turns out, I'm picky as all get out and stubborn as hell. For years I've known I should get a raincoat, but for years all I could find were plain, boring raincoats, that fit poorly and just made no sense for my style. Seriously, it's hard to find a raincoat you can wear a dress under!
Well, a couple months back, Boden released this pink polka-dotted beauty. I was in love. I finally took the plunge and bought it, and it arrived in the mail last week. I can wear it with a dress, it's adorable, AND it keeps me dry! It's seriously too perfect for words.
And ya know what? I got it just in time. After a surprisingly lovely, surprisingly dry winter in the Northwest, spring is upon us, and boy is it a rainy one (as witnessed by my super frizzy hair. Ugh. Does anyone else have this problem?).
These photos were taken during a dry spell we had for about an hour on Sunday afternoon. Katie and I had headed out to the outlet malls to do some shopping. I ended up leaving empty handed, but Katie definitely found some good stuff! After our shopping and photos, we headed to the Tulalip Casino for my very first time gambling. Just to preface it, I never win anything luck based. Never. So, I didn't exactly have the highest hopes. We ended up playing a few different slot machines, and while I was seriously losing at first, I happened upon some lucky machine and all in all ended up leaving $20 richer. Woo!
Otherwise, the weekend was a pretty lazy one. I ended up coming down with a cold on my first day at my new job last week, so between that and the new job itself, I was pretty worn out. By the way, sorry things were a bit quiet around here last week- the cold was to blame!
Anyway, all in all it was a very nice weekend and I'm looking forward to a healthier week this week!
Did you do anything fun over the weekend?
Til next time!
