WIW: for wind and rain

Yesterday was windy all day (see my hair in pic #2?), and it turned into a stormy night (6 tornadoes were spawned by the storm, though our local sirens were just a warning.  We did get 7 inches of rain though).  Due to extremely muddy conditions, I'm back to indoor shots.  But I do like my outfit today - it's a version of Angie's Lilac, Toffee and White ensemble from last fall.  Mine is lilac, cognac and cream.

Yesterday, I wore gingham checks with jean culottes (at least, I consider them culottes - perhaps they're actually long bermuda shorts).  My feet were so so happy in my birkenstocks.  Made me resolve to find a way to wear them more of the year.

What are your suggestions to improve either of these?

    That is some crazy weather you're having! So glad you have that wonderful new home to hunker down in. Love today's outfit. Are those the jeans you bleached? They look really good. I'm always one to "put a belt on it", so I would have added a belt in #2 if you have belt loops. Otherwise, all good!

    Love both your outfits. Hope you are safe from tornados.

    Oh, that lilac shirt is fantastic on you - goes so well with your hair!
    Stay safe!

    Thanks!  Yes, they're the jeans I bleached.

    And I'm thankful for no further rain today - lots of streets are closed due to flooding, and while we can get everywhere we need to, it takes extra long to go around all the closed streets.  Traffic is pretty slow :)

    Ah yes, spring on the plains!  It's always a bit exciting this time of year!  I'm going to Six Flags today with the kids, and storms are likely to make an appearance.  Do we stay home?  Nah!

    Linen can be high maintenance, but the natural fiber suits your style, and the feminine color is a nice addition.  Your pulling in a great trend with the gingham, too.

    Why not enjoy your birkies more?  I bet they go with lots of your ensembles.  How many pairs do you own?  I could see you using white, brown, and metallic, too.

    That lilac linen shirt looks fabulous on you. I am also seriously impressed with your jeans bleaching. I "hearted" your tutorial.

    lilac is a good color for you. I almost DM'd you to see if you were OK after our stormy night. Yes to trying to wear your Birks more. I finally lemminged and bought a pair in white. They are getting a lot of wearings.
