Edit: Rainy Day Style
 

It's been a rainy week on the East coast, and of course Inslee - master illustrator of the clothes we wish existed - has dreamed up the perfect rainy-day style in this illustration. Keep scrolling to shop the outfits above (or the closest approximations I could find online), and shop more of Inslee's work here. And let me know if you find that perfect floral print in actual fabric form, okay?
