With the rainy past few days (or at least where I live…) I though I write a post in “honor” of the rain, a post about my weekly obsession, rain boots and umbrellas. Enjoy!
When I’m looking for a pair of rain boots I normally turn to Hunters brand or http://www.wellyboots.com/. The shapes are simple, there are tons of colors and you know that there reliable because there so popular.
When I am wearing solid colored boots, I like wearing skirts, shorts, skinny jeans or leggings. I like them to be a part of the ensemble of the outfit, the thing that makes it click. ($125 Nordstroms)
Unlike solids, I like these boots to be the thing that makes this outfit POP, therefore I like to wear skinny jeans or leggings when I rock these shoes.
Everyone needs a little something to keep there hair from frizzy in the rain. What’s that little something? An Umbrella!
Oh La La is right! Wear this umbrella with basically everything but try not to clash with the rain boots (solid boot colors work best). ($129 http://www.umbrellas.net)
Simple and Sweet, wear with solids mostly but theres always room for some funky pieces! ($14.99 Target)
In Key West, I got my haircut and learned an awesome hair trick. A way to fix your pool damaged hair, so forget the $8.00 bottles of chlorine shampoo, theres and cheaper way…CLUB SODA (about $2 at most supermarkets)
Before you get into the pool (lake, ocean etc.) wet your hair with fresh water. Your hair can only absorb so much so less chlorine will get in it
When your done swimming for the day, wet your hair with fresh water
Then, turn the water off (this really matters) and pour Club Soda on it.
Let it sit for about 3 minutes.
Then wash your hair regularly with shampoo and conditioner
For me, this prevented “crunchy hair”. I hope it does for you!
Hey! Spring always brings urges for new and fresh fashion accessories, and whats better than a chic headband to celebrate?
~ Don’t want to spend money? Grab an old ribbon or a tie that used to belong to the shirt you never wear or even some cool yarn, tie it, then just slip it on.
~ To get the best look for wearing a ponytail or bun with a headband try not to put it on by pushing it on to your head, instead lift it and then place it on the place you want to avoid your hair to bump up.
~ Pick a headband that goes best with your look…
Low-key but cool- Try thin headbands with messy buns.
Soft and pretty- Try headbands with big flowers and colors that POP
~Simple but cute- Try thick headbands in solid colors.

So here I’m responding to your (commenters) weekly obsessions!
1st obsessions: Yoga Pants
“heya! i am loving these stretchy yoga pants. well, there actually ice skating pants but no one knows that what means… so ya! they are so comfy and great for the gym. i feel like such an outfit repeater cuz i wore them twice in a row (eek!!) but i just couldnt get enough of them!! some people think that sweat and/or yoga pants are a fashion faux pas, but i think think if worn correctly ( and not to often!) they can look suuppper chic!”
These comfy bottoms are perfect for a way to look chic plus lounge, exercise (a run or gym). Yoga pants also can be cheap and easy to find!
$29.50 Victoria’s Secret
Can’t find what to wear with these pants? Try a crop top or loose sweater. (Remember: Comfy is the Key!)

Unicorns weekly obsession is…scarfs! I’ve loved adding scarfs to my outfits for a long time, ever since my dad bought me a light pink pashmina in NYC for $5 (great deal!) but this week i just can seem to stop wearing scarfs!. Double looped, single looped, knotted or just over the shoulder. This accessory can we be thrown on to any outfit for the best way to leave the house. Two of my fave ways to where a scarf is with a pair of leggings, a tight or loose simple tank, a cardigan,and pair of flats or TOMS, or with a pair of jeans, a loose crop top or sweater and a pair of combat boots. Of course for both of these outfits you would add a totally chic looking scarf. Check out some of Unicorns fave scarf picks below.
