(ABOVE) A windy, rainy day, but I was prepared with rubber flip flops and this cute Vineyard Vines rain-proof jacket. In case the sun came back out, I also had my straw hat (see it peeking out in the background here)–which I always have with me!

Southwest Florida winters are mostly known for being quite dry, but two weeks ago came a forecast for lots of wind and, possibly, rain.  I didn’t want to worry about an umbrella, so this versatile jacket was perfect.  It doesn’t look like a raincoat, but it is one–and also has a hood.

I ended up finding several cute clothing items at Marshall’s, including a pull-on faux-suede skirt that I didn’t buy initially but ended up going back to get later on that day–because I couldn’t stop thinking about it! ~Janis Lyn Johnson
