Gray day but I'm combating it with Color!

Hi lovelies,
It is gray and rainy here in Boise but it is supposed to get up to 56 degrees so I will be able to do my usual lunchtime walk despite the rain! I wanted a cheery outfit so here is what I wore:
black levi demi-cure skinnies
rust colored turtleneck
Multi color scarf
Gray faux leather jacket
black lace up boots
poppy red Eddie Bauer raincoat
black suede rain hat

Hopefully this look meets with approval. Happy Friday!

    Very cute, fashionable, and put together. Love the scarf with the boots, the jacket, the trench!

    Lovely as always Meredith!

    I LOVE those boots with skinnies and your happy raincoat! Those Levis are really working for you.

  • Jem replied 9 years ago

    Another great outfit! I love your bright cheery coat and of course your skinnies with the boots. Your grey jacket is really great, too!

  • modgrl replied 9 years ago

    Yay for color! I love this combination on you. The gray leather jacket is wonderful and I love the pop of color from the scarf.

    Oh man! I love that hat!

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    Meredith, I simply can't believe you never wore skinnies before. Your body was MADE for these pants! You just look wonderful in them, tucked or untucked. I hope you will continue to wear with pleasure!

  • Victoria replied 9 years ago

    Very stylish, Meredith! and yes, i second everyone's opinion that you look great in skinnies!

    Thanks ladies for your thumbs up on the outfit! I was so resistant to wearing skinnies before and now I really like them and actually these are super comfortable. Somehow I thought they would feel tight. I have been thinking about a blouson top (almost like a short dress over them) Do you think that would work? I need some different types of tops.
    Sunita and Jayne,
    I got the hat a couple of years ago at Macys after Xmas sale and though I am not much of a hat person, I thought this one would look pretty good at least for a rain hat!

    You are so rockin those skinnies! The boots go so well with them.

  • san replied 9 years ago

    You look so great and ready for spring! I love the lace up boots. I had ordered a pair from Frye in cognac but sent them back thinking the laces were just too much going on. Perhaps I should have tried them in black for less contrast like you have. The poppy raincoat is perfect.

    Look at you!! So FAB!

    It is grey and rainy here too...I celebrated by buying the prettiest soft butter yellow blouse.....a bit of sunshine:)

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks again ladies!
    San- I hope you find the laceups you want! I bet those Fryes were really pretty. Kind of out of my price range! :(
    That buttery goodness blouse must be a hit of liquid sunshine. Please post a pic soon of it! One of my very favorite colors!

    I think I like those skinnies even more than in their introductory post Meredith. What a great look for you. The scarf and trench are beautiful.

  • ManidipaM replied 9 years ago

    Love that colourful scarf with the rust and grey, Meredith, but I just can't move past the suede hat that shrugs off rain! How utterly amazing! AND it looks charming on you!

  • Scarlet replied 9 years ago

    I love this outfit too! That rain hat is so cute.
