Make the rain look good on you

chartreuse chic

I have a bit of a complicated social agenda for tonight, starting with standing in the rain for an hour or two, and then moving on to a relaxed but not dive-y bar. So what in the world can I wear that will keep me dry and cozy but not leave me looking like a bum off the street once I'm out for a drink?

The first key is rain boots -- I don't play around with the comfort of my toes. I'm always annoyed when I can't find recycled content rain boots. Surely someone must be making them! But until I find that brilliant eco maker, I'll keep my eye on these tough looking Gap wellies, with proceeds donated to the Global Fund. Next, how about a perfect pair of organic wide leg pants. This Serfontaine pair will look cute and trouser-y with the hems rolled, and I'll stay dry and mud-free. Then a sweater that will keep me warm and a something sexy underneath to show off a little skin once I'm in the bar. Preppy organic cotton by Perfectly Imperfect and slinky bamboo by Sworn Virgins should do the trick! Finally, the most important element of all -- a recycled umbrella from Monsoon Vermont that makes both a style and an eco statement. Now I'm ready to go!

Perfectly Imperfect Rib V Cardigan $106, Sworn Virgins Jane Shirt $88, Serfontaine Sailor Wide Jean $209, Gap (PRODUCT) RED™ wellies $60.
