FRIDAY FAVORITES...Blame it on the Rain

Rain, rain, go away. Well, usually yes, go far away Rain!! Don't get me wrong, Fall to me, is for crisp, walk in the leaves crunch and slight warmth from the autumn sun. However, there are some days where you're totally OK with a dreary, rainy day. In fact, there have been a couple days where I was like, oh I have the day off, please rain so I can do several of these things on my favorites list below. Today is one of those days!! Yay!!

But, first.......

Onto this Rainy Day faves...
1. RAIN BOOTS OF COURSE
Why I WANT it to Rain? These puppies!!

My first pair of Hunter Rain Boots in Military Red, just purchased this week!!
Obviously, I will need to obtain or need to recreate ALL of these outfits
 The top left and middle pic and the bottom middle are my 3 Favorites!!!

My other favorite pair of rain boots I own; these leopard Sperry's


And a pair I want because of course we don't just need tall rain boots, we need short ones too!

2. CANDLES BURNING
There is just something so homey about candles burning on a rainy day, especially in the Fall and Winter months. Here are my favorite Fall candles that I burn regularly.

KENTUCKY BOURBON
 This has been a long time favorite of mine. It's by a company called Candleberry and I get them online HERE 
It literally smells up the entire house, even if you have a large one!! SOOO GOOD!! 

Of course, you cannot go wrong with Bath and Body 3 wicks. There is a coupon floating around now for a FREE one with any purchase 
The CARAMEL PUMPKIN  SWIRL is my favorite
 


3. IN THE CROCK and BAKING IN THE OVEN
Yes, don't you just love a lazy rainy day and the crock pot on low smelling oh, so good!! I did a post a few months ago called I LOVE MY CROCKPOT
 where I noted 5 of my favorite CP recipes. Here's another great and easy one to warm up and flavor your rainy days.
Crock Pot Orange Chicken Recipe HERE

And of course rainy days call for something baking in the oven. Imagine How Good these Smell??!!

4. CUTE UMBRELLAS
My mom was reminding me the other day that ho when I was a little girl, she always bought me cute little umbrellas. Well, I still love them today and so does she. Check these out:



5. RAINY DAY LAUGHS
Aww, piglets need to be stylin' too!
And for fun!!
I DO NOT do This! Ha! Just thought it was cute at Francesca's when Husband and I went to the Mall. Ha Ha! Happy Weekending!!

  5. I have been lusting after red hunter boots for the last month! Great minds think alike! Who would think you could create so many outfits with the red ones?! I am also loving the new fall candle line at B&BW. The Caramel Swirl smells divine but I also love the straight up Pumpkin Pie one. Smells like you're actually baking which I never am;)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Normally, I'm unhappy when it rains but it helped cool it down so I'm ok with it. Having cute rain gear also helps. I love those red hunter boots. I'm so boring my rain boots are gray. I totally need them in a fun color like pink. haha. Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. OMG! We have the same exact crock pot! And I'm planning on using mine this weekend! Thanks for the mention of the new candle because I've been looking for a new one. I smelled the ones at BBW and the pumpkin apple was my fave. Thanks, friend, because now I will have that song by Milli Vanilli in my head all day! Blame it on the rain - looks rainy today here, too! Have a WONDERFUL weekend, Andrea!

  9. P.S. I love how the candle company promotes the scent: "Totally intoxicating but legal." My kind of candle!

  12. Is it bad I haven't consistently shaved my legs in weeks now lol!? All of the food please, maam! I love your red boots. I pull out my black Hunters just for anything outdoorsy come fall; so cute with jeans for trekking around at an outdoor concert or oyster roast. You've got me temped with the cute red ones now, though! Happy weekend, lovely lady and hope you enjoy a cocktail or two on a patio (sans rain!).

  13. I have been back and forth on whether I think I can get my money's worth from rain boots or not. I am still on the fence, but those red ones are lovely!!! I haven't heard of those candles before, but I love a good candle! My go to is bath and body works. Hope you have a great weekend!

  16. I am the exact same, I love rainy days when I'm indoors! OMG baking in the rain is literally my favorite past-time, so good! I totally want to buy a pair of Hunter boots but we don't get enough rainy days here to justify the expense, but they are so dang cute! We go from dry heat to maybe a couple of days of rain to full out snow storms. I love all the outfits and can't wait to see what you pair yours with! I hope you have a fantastic, fun weekend my absolutely gorgeous and sweet friend! XO -Kim
