okay i promised myself i wouldn’t bombard you all with more monsoon posts but these days it seems like every plan i make revolves around flooding and bad hair days. with humidity, floods and mud always trying to put a damper on things, we need all the inspiration we can to dress chic, agreed?

i’ve been creating moodboards of inspirational images at the start of summer and fall forΒ agesΒ but it never struck me to make one for the monsoon, till today.as you can see, clear everything works this year, from trenches to wellies and umbrellas. also, pops of colour pack a punch on a gloomy day while layering prints keep you snug when it gets chilly.

so here you have it, ladies and gents, my 2011 ‘rainspiration’. and, yes, the word is made up.


i hope you guys are as inspired by these images as i was. if you want to share your own inspiration with me, drop me a comment or an email!

bisou bisou,
anushka xx

    Lovely images! I love the rains and there’s nothing like a bright color to brighten up the grey skies. Among all the photos, I don’t think much of Carrie Bradshaw but I love what she’s wearing! Thanks for sharing.

    love this post, i really enjoy carrying an umbrella, and the pics are soooo chic!

    Do you know I have this huge transparent umbrella which I painted last year?! It’s so big that you really don’t get wet once you are under it. Irony is, I can’t carry it around to college, as it’s HUGE and nosy aunties in train complain about big umbrellas!
    Pwetty photos :-*
