DC is Rainy

I think it has rained in DC 10 out of the 12 days we have lived here. Now, I was born and raised in upstate NY where it is only sunny for like 60 days out of the year and most of those non-sunny days are rainy.....but after living in the south for two years, I kind of got used to the perpetual droughts.

In honor of all the rain, the other day I bought a pair of Lilly Pulitzer's Kids Swellies. They were just delivered, and are super cute.

Unfortunately I couldn't find a picture of the boots with the pattern, so we are going to have to make due with what we have.

Here are the boots:
And this is the pattern:The best part....my freakishly small feet fit into the kid's version (making them cheaper in general) and they were on sale at Splash of Pink. Yippy! I secretly want some rain today, but I know I will be miserable at the National's game tonight if it actually is raining. I think I will wear the swellies just in case though!


  1. Yeah - this rain isn't normal. We've gotten like 15 inches or something so far this month. Crazy!

    Have fun at the Nats game - it isn't supposed to rain, but bring a warm coat!

  2. Ooh I love wearing kid's sizes. They are definitely always cheaper. Looks like we might luck out with no rain today but probably not. Too many clouds in the sky to be sure.

  3. They're adorable! I have a black and white polka dot pair :) And wow...how small are your feet that you fit into kid's sizes?
