My Outfit Monday: The time I under-reacted, fashion-wise, to a tropical storm

I'm a notorious over-preparer with storms, but really only as it pertains to what I'm wearing. If it's storming when I wake up, I go straight to my polka-dotted rainboots (from Walmart, for kidz) and a rain jacket made for adventuring. One hundred percent of the time this happens, it has stopped raining by the time I get to work, and it's clear everyone but me checked the all-day forecast.

With Tropical Storm Colin bearing down on us with rain and high winds, I would have had a great excuse to do all of that.

But not today.

For whatever reason, I'm wearing this: a new sleeveless top, a standby green vintage pencil skirt, and strappy wedge sandals in a pale shade of nude. Plus, drop-down earrings and a gold bangle.

The top is a new sale-rack buy from Shandy Style Boutique in St. Petersburg. I went in with a 25-percent-off coupon I picked up from the store's booth at the indie market. At the checkout counter, I was told the top had been marked down so much (to $20) I couldn't use the coupon for a first purchase. I tucked it into my purse for a rainy day, a little dejected.

My skirt is from the Dress for Success blowout sale, my sandals were donated to me by former Deal Diva Emily and chewed on by my dog Minnow, the earrings are from BCBG and the Kate Spade bracelet was a gift. 

Not pictured: blazing red Mountain Hard Wear jacket for weathering the storm. I couldn't help myself.

Stay safe and dry, everyone!
