Unexpected rainfall

This is probably one of the most "ordinary" outfits that has been featured on this blog since the beginning. I had no intention for taking any blog photos today since we were just running a few quick errands around the 23rd area in Portland this morning. As we were passing by the neighbourhood we discovered this beautiful historic home nearby. What a hidden gem! It has beautiful front stairs, porch (with the cutest doggie lounging on it) and a gorgeous double door. Unfortunately it began to pour, better yet, it started to hail! It was painful to stand in the rain to snap some REALLY fast pictures with me screaming "oh my god my bag is getting wet" (I am way too weird I know!).
So, please excuse the poor quality of these photos. I thought about not posting them at all but then I thought why not? It is my blog and I am no model so why would my readers care if I all of a sudden still don't look like one? lol
One thing for sure, I will be back to this beautiful historic home when the weather is nicer. I really want to show you how uniquely built it is!

Bear2 purple blazer, Keywear scarf, 7 for all Mankind jeans, Sam Edelman booties and Balenciaga City bag
Thanks so much for reading! Happy Tuesday :)

Love the jacket! :)

Such a nice casual outfit :) Glad that you and your bal didn't get too hurt in the hail - hopefully you could quickly take shelter after you got the pics! :)

Purple and red is a perfect combo, I've just used it for an outfit too, I'll show on the blog in a couple of days!

I would have liked to see more of the home! The bag looks so pretty. I don't really care if my bags get caught in the rain. Once I use them, they have to live life with me :)

I think the photos came out lovely anyway! There's something about the lighting right before the rain comes that makes blog photos look really good haha. I love the pops of color in this look! :)
