Yesterday in Raleigh was beyond dreary and nothing is worse than cold rain soaking through your flats, so I opt for rain boots! I paired them with a ponte pant (a comfortable alternative to a legging that is considered work appropriate) and in an attempt to look more professional than casual, did the blouse and cardigan combo. As always, my eye darted straight to the beading on the bottom of the sweater. The black rain jacket is basic, but I love the high collar with a hood.
