Rain, rain...where are you?!?

I was needing a little pick me up today...some of those inspirational quotes...and some rain (c:

If you are singing the Sesame Street song "one of these things is not like the other..." right now, it's probably because you don't feel quite the same about rain as I do.

I *LOVE* IT!

There is something almost magical about a great chilly, gray, rainy day....and plus I love these quotes and all the rainy inspiration today...




I thought this party idea was brilliant that Megan over at Splendid Design featured:


Plus, I have a strange obsession with Wellies...




Something about being able to have so much fun with color and pattern and a boot you can stomp in a puddle with and not be worried about ruining them...

If anybody out there is having a rainy day today, just know that I'm super jealous. (c:

***update***
I would just like to say that I am sorry that I posted this on a day when people are supposed to be getting hit with rain from hurricane Irene! I was just thinking about soothing and calming rains...y'all are in my thoughts and prayers! )c:

I like this post! I love a good thunderstorm while snuggled up on the couch or sitting on a covered porch. I just love the sound of it!

I want those teal Hunters!!!!!

I'm so with you- love the rain and we've had so little this summer...adore all of the boots!!

I love rain on Sunday's because it's the perfect excuse to watch movies and do nothing. It also seems to make baking even more fun. If I do have to go outside I always rock my hunter boots. I do not however like thunderstorms, mainly because my dog shakes like a leaf.

OOh, I loong for rainy days again. We don't get nearly enough here in NM. Some day's there is simply nothing better than a cool, dreary day, I love to sit in my living room window and watch it fall.

I need a break from this sun and heat and I love a cool rainy day too. Such a good excuse to stay inside and do nothing or go out in some of those cute wellies.

Eva said...

Aubrey querida, muito legal seu post, aqui eu tenho que fazer um post sobre o sol que está sumido nessas terras de cá, hehe, amei as imagens, aquela mesa na rua é muiiiito romântica, que sonho!! bjinhos, bom dia para você, minha amiga.

Courtney {a thoughtful place} said...

So cute. That party idea is unreal. So funny, as I was reading I was thinking that I like to snuggle in the rain and besides that it's all about the boots. And then you hit us with those beauties. I think I need the boots with the bows in the back. Adorable.

Great collection of photos! A hurricane is headed to my neck of the woods this weekend....that's a little too much rain for me!

tina / half of what I say said...

I thought it just might rain here today until the sun just came out in the last 10 minutes. I grew up on the coast and I love the rain. The sound of the rain on the roof at night is probably the most comforting sound I can imagine. And I love rubber boots too. Kind of adore the red ones with the bows you posted. We don't get a lot of rain here, but when we do, I break out my Hunter/Jimmy Choo collab boots in a navy faux croc. Love them, and I match my gym floors, lol.

Jessie said...

It is raining here in Chicagoland! Be jealous, be very, very jealous, just kidding. :) Love the collection of boots you picked, each one is so pretty and chic.

P/S: By the way, I am hosting a fab giveaway. Come by and enter for a chance to win a beautiful and personalized necklace courtesy of SimaG Jewelry!

I LOVE a good rainy day, but with the absolutely gorgeous weather we have today in PA I couldn't even think about rain right now.

This post makes me want to spend money. LOVE IT ALL! ;-)

Jessamie said...

Not in a snotty way, but be thankful, because I think we're about to get a lot of rain when we get hit by Irene this weekend...

Marie said...

I agree with you, sometimes a rainy day is a GOOD day :) We have sun now, but I think we will have rain tomorrow!

Rainy does can definitely do a soul good. Especially when you have some fab Hunters to play around in :)

designstiles said...

I like the rain too. It doesn't rain that often, so when it does, it almost feels like a treat. I love a rainy lazy day. Too bad my hair frizzes up like crazy in the rain. Not a cute look.

Bud and Leo said...

I would give anything to dine at that table! Looks amazing! Have you seen Midnight in Paris? He's obsessed with Paris in the rain. You would love it!

Sara Mueller said...

On my wish list is a pair of hunter boots. I need some rain myself!

Amanda::Eclectic Snapshots said...

I am loving the second picture witht the table in the street.
I need rain boots in a bad way, one purchase I have yet to make!

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

I love the first quote about dancing in the rain! That second photo of the dreamy table in the rain is beautiful image! I wonder if it was planned that way, of a photo shoot interrupted by the rain and then embraced?

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

I love rainy sunday afternoons. It is so nice to have an excuse to stay inside all curled up on the couch with a book and a glass of wine.
However, every other day of the week needs to be sunny and warm :)

Kariyah said...

Lovely post! It brightens up any rainy day!!

Natalie said...

I am dying to get a pair of wellies for me and my little man. Hoping the hurricane doesn't hit us- if it does I will blame you for this post j/k! xoxo

Style, She Wrote said...

Great quote and fabulous rainboots! Love the red pair with bows -- adorable! xo style, she wrote

HI, Aubrey.
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my green dresser! I'm happy to see that others are enjoying it (almost) as much as me. :)

Love this post about the rain. I'm not usually a big fan of rain unless it's a super dramatic thunderstorm, however, I am working on seeing the positive. Your post is a good reminder to love and appreciate rain. It is a beautiful thing.

Have a great evening!
Kelly

Barbara@HausDesign said...

I am also a total fan of rain! Being an Oregonian you have to love it or you go crazy :) so I loved this post!!!

cam said...

Lovely post. Makes me wish I liked rainy days. I do love the wellies! Mine are black. How boring!!! P.S. so sweet of you to post an update!

Julip Made said...

I completely understand... right now I'm sitting on my chaise looking out the window at pre-Irene rain, which is the relatively calm good kind. Although I'll probably be singing a different tune in a few hours.
