Rain, Rain, Go Away


I've never been a fan of the rain and I think it's because we always get a ton of it in the fall/winter. This is actually my first time shooting in the rain. I figured since the forecast shows rain for the next few weeks, I needed to bite my tongue, figure out my camera, and get out there and shoot. 

Chase and I found an under cover spot for him to shoot, while I was still able to be out in the open. Luckily, it was only sprinkling that day. If any of you shoot when it's raining, I'd be curious to know what you use to protect your gear? 



When it's raining I'm all about comfort and most of the time I find myself reaching for a ton of layers to create an effortless cute look.

In the fall/winter I typically pull out my beanies a lot because they eliminate the amount of time I spend on my hair. I usually end up quickly curling my hair, which takes no more than 15 minutes. Unfortunately, with the rain my curls usually just turn into waves.



Gum Boots: Rain Boots (buy here) | Beanie: Aldo (buy here) | Cable Knit Socks: Hunter (buy hereScarf: Old Navy (similar,) | Skinny Jeans Motto Black: Dynamite (buy herePlaid Shirt: Dynamite (similar, similar) | MittensAldo (buy here) | Long Hooded Cardigan: Forever 21 (buy here) | Bucket Bag: Banana Republic (buy here) |

To finish off this look I added a pair of folded over cable knit Hunter socks, a black scarf, plaid shirt, grey and white patterned mittens, a bucket bag, and a long hooded cardigan, which you can also see me wearing here

Hope everyone has a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!


Stay blissful!:-)

  1. I don't like rain, either. Fortunately, the rainy days in D.C. stopped and I was able to have my blog photos taken. I love your wintery look! You look so cute in that pretty beanie! Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Danielle! I'm such a sucker for beanies. Ah yeah we get way too much rain here and I absolutely hate it. Especially when we have a day of shooting planned. I'm still trying to find some good under cover spots where I don't need to worry about my camera getting soaked. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any. Only ones that I can still go out when it's just sprinkling. Thanks for stopping by and hope u had an awesome weekend:-).

  2. Loving how cozy and warm you look! So very pretty! The pop of plaid addsa nice bit of color to this too. I havent shot in pouring down rain really, but I have in heavy snow falls. For those, I throw a towel over top of the camera while its on the tripod.

    1. Thank u Jalisa! I was a little nervous at first given that I've never been shooting in the rain. But they definitely worked a lot better than I thought. Luckily it was only sprinkling that day or else I probably wouldn't be able to bring my camera out or it would get soaked. I just wish I could find a really beautiful indoor location around here to shoot some photos at because it's been pouring lately! Hope u had a lovely weekend!

  9. You look awesome!!! I wish I could give advice, but I always wimp out when it's raining so I don't have too many tricks about protecting gear. At least with overcast weather the lighting is great and balanced! Here's to sunnier days! XO

    1. Awe no worries, until I figure things out better with my camera i'll need to start sourcing more under cover areas to go shooting. I agree with overcast weather and how I started to prefer it much more. Especially in the fall/winter it's a lot more difficult to shoot on sunny days because the colour balance is always off.

  12. It has been raining a lot here too, so wells are a staple in my fall/winter routine. Sadly I cant offer any tips on shooting in the rain, I don't do outfit posts, so I get to stay indoors!

  24. Ella, this look is so beautiful and it was definitely worth shooting in the rain:) I really like the combination of your red plaid shirt, long grey cardigan and a beanie. It's so cozy and chic.
    To be honest, I never tried taking pictures when it's raining or snowing, because we have quite a lot of dry but cold winter days. Our January and February are probably the coldest months, so I plan to find a nice indoor location to shoot my outfits.
    Hope you are having a nice week so far:)

    1. Awe thank u Yulia! I was super warm with all my layers, so it wasn't as bad as I thought and the mittens really helped too:-). Yeah u don't really get much rain in Montreal, lucky u! Although I know u get a ton of snow. This time of year it's definitely much harder to go out and shoot with how cold it is. I'm trying to actually find some nice indoor spots too.. haven't had any luck lately! Where are u thinking of shooting?

  29. Looking super cozy and gorgeous despite the rain, hon! We are getting so much rain here in Dec it's insane :)
    I am in love with this warm and lovely look, and love the idea of Hunter socks folded over a boot! So clever. I tried to follow the link but it took me to the hat, hon. But anyway, I will definitely hunt those Hunters down (such a poor pun lol) ;)

  31. You look really pretty in red. Red is definitely a great color on you! Cute rain boots too! I hear California is going to get a lot of rain this year as well, so I will have to check into getting some of those cute Michael Kors rain boots just in case:)
