WIW - Rainy day Stripes and Crocs

As I mentioned last night, it stormed all night last night and is expected to continue today. It was already raining when I came in this morning. I remembered after the post that I did have one pair of crocs that I thought would be suitable.

I think i'm going to try a pair of the crocs closed toe wedges as my ideal rain shoe would be closed toe, but not completely flat so that I can be above the puddles.

My workplace is very casual. I'm usually considered pretty dressed up for here. These crocs aren't exactly dressy, so I just built a casual outfit around it.

Probably not my most fab, but I think it works for today.

Top - Kiyonna
Clams - Ross (I keep forgetting to check the tag for the brand. I think it's an inexpensive Jr plus brand but they are holding up well. I will be looking for some nice replacements while the summer sales are going on as I only expect 1-2 seasons out of these)
Shoes- Crocs
Necklace - Premiere Designs

    I love the knotting detail on this top Abie - so flattering. And your clams are the perfect length and taper. This is fab combination. I must tell you that your makeup is beautiful - not overdone, just subtle and polished.

    Well, there are Crocs, and there are CROCS! These, at least from a few feet aware, have a nice shape and construction. I agree that they'll only work when the rain is rather warm -- hardly for an April Shower in Chicago! Still, you look casual but put together and fab in the middle of the downpour. I must say that, after a season of drought, I'd be out dancing in it --- with shoes or without!

    I will have to keep my eyes open for those. They look perfect for shopping on a rainy summer day. Thanks! :o)

    When I read crocs, I was thinking of the super ugly ones with the holes in the tops and wondering what kind of outfit you could build around those. Your's are super cute and I would never guess they are crocs! Great idea for a rainy day since they won't be ruined if they get wet.

    The top looks so cute with the denim clams! I am amazed that those shoes are crocs because they sure don't look like the ugly marshmallowy ones I see around my area.

  • Scarlet replied 12 years ago

    Really cute--that is a great top! I had to check out this post to see how you are wearing Crocs, but if you hadn't said it, I would never have known. It's probably a good warm and pouring rain solution.

    I love this outfit on you, Abie. What a gorgeous striped top, and the clamdiggers are perfect too. I wouldn't have known either if you hadn't told us these were Crocs;-)

    So cute! Great hair. Great top. Great hair!

  • JulieJohn replied 12 years ago

    You look really pretty, and I love that top on you.

  • jayne replied 12 years ago

    You look great in this! love those crops and shoes....I may have to rethink crocs

  • AJ replied 12 years ago

    Oh very nice! The lighter cuffs on the clams echo the stripes on your pretty blouse.
    Your make-up always looks pretty.

    I don't think I've commented on one of your posts before though I've seen your WIW posts. WIsh I had more time to comment. In any case, I just wanted to say that I think you have great style. Today is yet another example of that. I will admit that I have been intrigued by some of the new crocs styles. That croc material is just so comfy and the new styles don't really read like crocs. Don't tell Angie.

  • Traci replied 12 years ago

    I think this may be one of my favorite looks you've ever posted. The proportions and shapes are just perfection and those crocs are very cute and polished. You look fab!

  • Deborah replied 12 years ago

    You look gorgeous! I was frightened to look when you said crocs because I immediately thought of the original, ugly big ones, but these look really nice! I. Elieve crocs come on all sorts of styles now...even heels:)

  • Janet replied 12 years ago

    Those are Crocs? Color me surprised!

    I love that top on you! Nice outfit.

    Thanks everyone, I am happy that my crocs were not tragic. I actually got them thrift. They still had the tags on and I thought they would make good shoes to wear with dresses for my september trip to Disney World. I hadn't considered they would be good rainy day options.

    The one downside is they do make the flip flop noise a little. I think if I try some of the flats they would be better in that regard.

    I am thrilled to hear that my makeup looks good. I have obsessed over finding the right makeup that I can apply in less than 5 minutes and will last all day in 100 degree weather. This summer I really feel like I made great choices and I've been super pleased with how it's worn. I will do a hot weather makeup post soon and maybe everyone can share their tips.
