Rainy Day- Etsy Inspirations!

...i came across this beautiful print by Etsy artist Kecky the other day and it inspired me to create a rainy day outfit.  i love the vintage cartoon look of this print and the subtle neutral tones.  the detail is amazing in this drawing and the hat is just adorable!

...i thought i could add just one thing to my rainy day outfit, a pop of crimson! 

...looks like it will be raining here in Boston for a few days and i know how much the dreary grey skies can get a person down. so why not add a little pop of color to your rainy day ensemble?! not only will you feel a little bit happier but it may also bring a smile to someone else's face.

~just a hint of red on this clear bubble umbrella, so stylish and fun!

...couture by UntamedMenagerie  ~this necklace is just the cutest, handmade and cut from acrylic in a unique design.  i'm so impressed with this shop, their items are fabulous!  i'm eyeing up a few... and so reasonably priced, "Couture" or any of their pieces would be a show stopping, eye catching, unique and trendy accessory!

...vintage silk kimono scarf by janetexcat ~this scarf is just lovely.  made from a vintage kimono, the colors and pattern are exquisite and it looks very well made.  a luxurious re-purposed silk scarf with a history of it's own, this is sure to be something worth cherishing for years to come.
