Rain Coats and Rain Drops

The weather has been less than pleasing in Vienna, for those of you who are out there in the other wonderful parts of the world.. But I guess now that I think back on the news forecast the whole world is having strange weather...I guess that is this in between stage they call "Spring".  I Love spring, it gives me the feeling of positive energy, the flowers are blooming everywhere, colors of all kinds gracing our paths.  It's Beautiful.

However,  Vienna is having a week of rain, and it would be fine if it was just rain but vienna weather likes to switch it up.  Rain, snow, sunshine, wind, rain clouds, sunshine all in one day. Today was one of those days but it was cold all day long, so atleast I knew I could wear a trench/rain coat and not sweat my cojones off :D

I bought this Coat about 6 or 7 years ago back when I still lived in the states...yah, seriously...I guess I can safely call it vintage now. Well I bought it back then because I loved the color, and just I had to have it,  I didn't have anything like it in my wardrobe.  Being a chubby kid I never had the confidence to wear it I thought it was just too bright and I didn't want to get any more unneccessary attention my way.  I literally wore it ONCE to the park while walking my dog........................................................................

a waste...


I've been wearing it this spring because I decided it needed to break out of the closet and shine!  I seriously love it and I feel so "Springy" in it.  Not to mention trench coats are so '"IN" right now...I really don't follow trends, I tend to just go with whatever I feel like (incase you haven't noticed while reading my blog )  But ever since I started wearing it I noticed that everyone was wearing Trench coats, I guess they are just available everywhere now.  I hope you all are enjoying yours like I am enjoying mine :) And let this be a lesson to you never to waste a beautiful clothing item, wear it! be proud of yourself and stunt! :)






 I just ran into the building from the wind and rain, It wreaked havoc on my hair!


The boots are actually purple, but it didn't really come through as purple on the pictures above.

Boots: local shoe store in vienna called Rosa
Coat: sorry I have no idea...
Scarf & Leggins: H&M
Bag: DIY


Over and out,
