Last Thursday, St. Louis was hit by a snowstorm. The storm wasn’t as
bad as it could get here, but I was caught off guard, so my outfit that day was hideous. Apparently, the
city of St. Louis wasn’t prepared for the storm either as several
commuters were stuck on highways for hours because the roads weren’t
sufficiently cleaned and salted.
Yesterday was a very
nice middle 60 degrees here in the Lou, but the freezing temps, rain,
and possibly snow are scheduled to return. This time, I’ll be ready!
Y’all know I prefer to be in a dress everyday. Here’s how I style one of my work sheaths for a colder day, but keep it spring fresh by playing with color.

Close-up to showcase details in outfit:
During the day, I’ll wear this lightweight yellow coat because it just screams spring and the temps aren’t falling into the teens until tonight.

Guess what? The super chic, patent, aubergine boots I’m wearing above are rain boots! I’ve never seen rain boots look this fly. They are by Cole Haan, retail for $228, but I found them in Marshalls for just $49! Score!

Shopping for rain boots? I found these shoes in Marshalls yesterday, so they could be in your stores too. If you can’t find them in store, check out the online options below. They are on sale (in select colors) online as well, but the prices aren’t as low as in Marshalls.
