It’s been raining FOREVER. My feet are constantly wet, my umbrella smells musty and my hair is beyond all repair. Ballet flats, denim jeans and liquid eyeliner have all been relegated until we’ve reached Dry Time (like Peace Time after war). So while I perform an anti-rain dance, here’s what I’ve been wearing…
I’ve been wearing various versions of these Uniqlo trousers/leggings/treggings almost every day. They’re the perfect mix of jean and legging – not so thick that they’ll soak up the rain and leave you weighing a stone more than when you left the house, but not so thin that you’ll flash your pants with every forward stride. This tartan check pair appeal to my Cher-from-Clueless side – I threw them on with a cropped jumper and sheer shirt for a nod to the nineties.
For navigating the puddles (read: flooded streets) of Leeds, I’ve been wearing these studded, buckled ankle boots kindly sent to me by Zalando. The small heel keeps my feet away from water and the leather is waterproof – no soggy toes here! I finished my outfit off with my beloved J.Crew khaki parka – it’s one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe and I find myself throwing it on at the first sign of grey clouds.
I’m hoping we’ll get some respite from the rain tomorrow, as I’m hitting the streets of Leeds for Grazia’s Street Fashion Week. I’ll be street style snapping all over the city from 10am, so pull on your glad rags and come find me (raincoats and wellies are welcome)!
