La Stripe Umbrella c/o Ashley Leanne $39.99
So you’re all dressed up and ready for a night out when it starts to rain. If you’re like me, I often wear dark colours out at night. Once I throw my black coat on over my outfit, I’m probably not the easiest to see on a dark rainy night. Cue this stylish umbrella. Not only is it adorable, it is most importantly reflective. That’s right, reflective! I have been using it for the last few weeks and I must say, I feel much safer walking around at night. There are so many pedestrian related accidents. Most of us don’t want to wear our reflective running jacket to a nice dinner out. This accessory is the perfect thing to keep you dry and safe. It is also available in a smaller collapsable version called On-The-Go Dots for $32.99.
This look is a combination shopping my closet and one new piece I’ve added. This skirt is from Barefoot Contessa. I got it there at the end of 2014 for Christmas. Still cute and in style. My heeled ankle boots were bought last winter from Le Chateau and this easy ruffle top is a new purchase from Banana Republic. I found it on sale for $20. I’ve already worn it three times this past week. I’m on a good start to my wear 30+ times shopping rule. Anyone else challenging themselves to shop their closets more this year?
