    Happy March🌾
    I say this is the unofficial start of Spring.
    Cute ootd. Love the stripe tee/w gingham. Who doesn’t love black and white w/a pop of red. Go Dawgs!
    Sooo ready for Spring. I have those black Hunter boots w/quilted tops. Love them.
    Wishing u an awesomely blessed week!

    I would love to know more about those shoes! Are they true to size? I wear a 5 1/2 – 6. The smallest they come is 6, that is why I’m asking. I won’t ask if they are comfortable… the price answered that question. When it comes to shoes you get what you pay for. They are beautiful… but I’m a sucker for a red shoe. Take care. ~Ruthi

  3. beautiful and classic combination
    Love it
    Question can you wear a belt with pants without straps

    • Beth Djalali says:

      i do. the only glitch is that the belt will move up or down. you can use fashion tape to keep it in place.
      otherwise, it will need some attention.

    Love the black and white gingham rain coat. Very nice for spring. I live up here in NE Ohio and it is still very cold here. I need to find a blogger that lives in the northern US for ideas on how to keep warm and still look nice. Any ideas?

    • Beth Djalali says:

      Instagram is probably your best bet finding bloggers in the NE but we all tend to follow the fashion cycle of spring, summer,
      fall and winter when the brands’ rollout the clothes for that season.

    Here in CA there is not as much call for rain coats, boots and umbrellas as I’d like. But as a Brit, I have I fondness for all of them. I joke that in the UK you never leave the house without at least a small travel umbrella in your bag, even on a sunny day. And in CA, you never leave the house without a pair of sunglasses, even on a rainy day.

    The gingham raincoat is so cute!

    I love that checked rain coat especially with the striped tee. I live in greater Seattle area so I, too, am a fan of rain coats and rain boots. The coat must have a hood though…no Seattelite uses an umbrella!

    Love your blog,

    Have had a love affair with umbrellas since I was four years old – magical.

    Thanks for the suggestions, especially the clear bell one. I’m sure everyone struggles to keep dry while trying to see where you’re going, and still respect others as we pass by. Excellent post.

    FYI, Atlanta always beats Seattle in average annual rainfall. Seattle’s is exactly the same as the national average you cite: 38″.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      thanks ann. how ’bout Atlanta has 109 days of rain compared to 150 in Seattle? we get gully washers that dump lots of rain then blow out of town leaving clear blue skies. whereas Seattle has more days with drizzle. mox nix, we had our share of rain last year that’s for sure!
