Spring Style with Dandy Boutique

April showers bring May flowers and that's certainly the case here in Charleston! Even though we are well into May now (can you believe it??) we are still getting daily showers. No complaints here though! All this rain is making our city look beautiful and lush. To combat these rainy days, I've teamed up with one of my favorite boutique, Dandy Boutique, and fellow stylish friends, Liz Martin of The Charleston Weekender, on how to style your outfit for those rainy, gray days with a special twist. 

Could there be a cuter pair of brunettes? Seriously, this girl is the best! 

When it's hot and muggy after it rains here, the last thing I like to wear is anything restrictive like pants, tight dresses, or anything I feel like I can't move in. This collar striped dress is perfect for those rainy days. Add a pop of fun to your outfit by pairing it with a clutch, but not just any clutch. A watermelon clutch. Girls, this will amp up your style game in a hurry. Plus, it's so stinking cute! 

But wait, there's more! We have a lemon clutch too!

I absolutely adore Liz's outfit from Dandy Boutique! Her white flared dress paired with her Hunter rain boots are perfect for walking around town after it rains and still look impeccably cute. Keep your outfit simple by adding a touch or two of color like her lemon purse and yellow umbrella. Cue the Rhianna tune. 

Thanks for keeping me dry! 

Just because it's raining doesn't mean your umbrella can't be cute too! Liz's umbrella is the perfect pop of yellow for any gray day. Plus, your friends can instantly pick you out in a crowd of gray and black umbrellas! West Elm has an incredible selection of umbrellas (like Liz's) that will instantly put you in a good mood on those rainy days.

Who says you can't have a good laugh during a photo shoot? Liz is always keeping me in stitches when we hang out. She's so incredibly funny, clever, and has the best sense of style! Just throwing a little girl love your way babe. 


I absolutely love pairing my outfits with punches of color and unique accessories. I know I'm all about some seriously minimalist style but that doesn't mean a girl can't have fun with a little color! These clever and cute clutches are the perfect accessory this summer. I mean really, what better way to strike up a conversation than by holding a lemon clutch?

That's because there is none.

What's your favorite way to keep your outfit fresh when it's raining out? Keep your outfit looking fresh to death this rainy spring by adding fun pops of color in unexpected places like your umbrella or purse. Even better, give your outfit a rainy day twist by pairing a super cute dress with rain boots.
