Right on cue, the wet, dreary days in Eugene, Oregon have arrived. It’s easy to get depressed and become less inclined to express your personal style when it’s 40 degrees and drizzly, but there are ways to dress stylishly despite poor conditions. This Fashionista stayed dry and adorable in her Hunter rain boots, knit scarf and patterned umbrella.
-When rain starts flooding the streets, there really is no other option. Luckily, there are thousands of adorable styles to fit any personality, mood, and budget. A favorite, of course, are Hunter rain boots, but Target also offers many varieties online for a more affordable option.
-One of my favorite accessories. I love the versatility of scarves, especially in the winter; they're warm and cozy and can make or break an outfit. Infinity or circle scarves are popular this year for the layering effect, so take advantage and stock up! You can find my favorite picks at Banana Republic and B.P. at Nordstrom.
C. People always say that the true Oregonians are those making their way through the rain sans umbrella. Well, I’m a true Oregonian, and I have to completely disagree with that statement. It is accurate, many people do simply put on a Columbia Sportswear or North Face waterproof jacket and go about the day without a second thought, but I highly encourage carrying an umbrella—especially if they look like these.
