It's rainy, it's hot and muggy, it's just a gross day in DC. When it's like this, I pull out these booties because they're tough, high enough to keep me out of puddles, and have amazing grip on the soles to give me traction on slick sidewalks. I know this week is going to get progressively hotter, so I wanted to get one more tutu wearing before it ends up being unbearable to wear. In the mirror, I found this ensemble pretty cute, in a Vivienne Westwood/Helena Bonham Carter sort of way. I even had my hair up in a haphazard knot until Emerson pulled on it while having her use the potty before heading out. By time I got Emerson dressed for the weather and ready to go, got all my bags were in the car, chasing after Emerson and making an important phone call in the rain with an umbrella in the crook of my neck, things began to fall apart, hence the post title. Eh, it's life, and I'm still starting off the week in a tutu, that's a good thing!

    Great look – I have just purchased a similar skirt in black as I could not get a nude tone that I liked.

    Oh and I love that your little one is in the background of the pics in her rain gear!!

    I’m inspired both to comment and try to recreate your look – so FABULOUS! And your hair looks so romantic and fresh. Ten out of ten for sure.

    You look radiant! That hot and muggy weather must agree with you. And those booties are a brilliant solution to your climate challenges.

    Your hair is beautiful in curls. It always looks lovely, but your curly “do”‘s are my favourite 🙂

    Well, despite your toddler’s “assistance” and the icky weather, you have pulled off a fabulous look here! Love the ultra femme with the hard edge details. An alternate title could be “Elegant Badass”. 😉

    Love those shoes! This weather is gross- I went for wedges today. Maybe I should invest in yours though, too cute!

    Very Helena Bonham Carter. I hate days like that. If I get flustered before I even leave the house, I am a gross, sweaty mess for the rest of the day!

    Well, you definitely don’t *look* a mess…your outfit looks sleek and fun and your hair looks lovely! I’m sure the humid weather is making those curls and waves pop out – mine does the same thing. 🙂

    LOVE the bracelet! Also, your hair looks awesome, even in the rainy, muggy day. Is there a particular product you use to keep it wavy but not frizzy? Bec. I’d step out in that kind of weather & get an immediate frizz-bomb.

    I’ve missed your MIss Sixty booties!  You look very nice even with the dreary weather.  I can’t wait to see your outfits for the rest of the week.

    I love that you look cheery even with that gross weather behind you. You have the best selection of umbrellas, ps. You inspired me to get a fun one the other day but while it looks adorable it’s not so functional.
