5 of 30: Lots of Blue and Tropical Rain Boots.

Keeping it short and soft today because I have a sick baby at home (she is napping now, sweet pea). It has been a rough weekend for Vivian and I. Please say a little positive prayer for us. Thanks.

Today's Outfit features lots of Blue (and some White, Black, Green & Lavender too). These New Pants are sort of Equestrian, but at the same time thy have Tuxedo-inspired Stripes off each side. I do like the zippered ankles and their unique color between a Royal Blue and a Navy. The Plaid Shirt is Cobalt and White with Gingham lining and all kinds of Beautiful. Rain had to put e drench into the day though (pun intended) so I had to wear my Tropical Wellies. What do you think?
Pros: Cobalt is one of my Most Favorite Colors. Heck, I Love Blue in all shades. The Fish Necklace adds a little whimsy. But for the most part I like the simplicity and monochromatic appeal of this Outfit.
Cons: I am not sure the Rain Boots work but they had to be worn, since it was a very wet day. I think the Black Oxfords or Navy Polka Dot Pointy Flats (which were both included in my 30 for 30 items) would have worked much better.
Cobalt+White, Plaid Button-down w/ Gingham Print inside: Joe Fresh (JC Penney's) (New).
Navy Skinny Pants w/ Black Tuxedo Stripes off the Sides: Pull & Bear (New).

P.S. First, I'm linking up with Brynn+Co. who are doing a themed week of Florals starting Monday, and my Tropical Flower Boots totally qualify. Also, linking with Manic Monday, Trend Spin, Monday Mingle, Bloom, Monday Morning Gossip and Monday Must Haves. 
F.Y.I. My Must Haves (especially for April Showers as well as for Fall) are a pair of Colorful Rain Boots. They instantly make an Outfit more Colorful and Brighten up your mood on a rainy day. =)
