It’s raining pretty hard out as I’m writing this post. I actually really love it. There’s something so peaceful and relaxing about curling up with a warm blanket and a cup of tea, listening to the rain fall. And on top of that, writing and blogging, for me at least, is so healing and rejuvenating for my soul.
Today, rain is a reminder for me that God’s mercies are made new each and every day. Just like the rain washes away the leaves (and my car, yay for a free car wash!!!), God creates a clean heart, a renewed right spirit within me (psalm 51:10). He forgives, even when I have trouble forgiving myself. He loves, even when I am the most undeserving. And, He is faithfulness, always. What a gift to be in the presence of such a gracious God. I couldn’t ask for a better way to start the week. Thank you Lord, for this beautiful rainy day.
One of my favorite looks to wear on a rainy day like today is this cozy wrap sweater with leggings, and my Hunter boots. I recently picked up this extra fine wool sweater from Banana Republic and have fallen in love with it! I love that it looks like a trench coat in shape, but is light weight and belted, which defines my waist. I’ve had these Hunter boots since last year and can’t brag on them enough! If you’re looking for durable rain boots, these are perfect. Because I’m petite, I actually bought mine from the kids section (regularly I’m a 6.5 in women, so that’s a size 5 girls). They’re tailored more to my size, and cheaper! I added my Long champ bag to this look, because the material is water resistant. I’m all about being practical when possible!
