I love the rain because it reminds me of where I went to college and where I grew up. Rain is cozy and makes reading inside extra-pleasant. Plus I love wearing rainboots. There's a story behind this skirt, too: I got it for $9 a couple years ago using this freakish trick I discovered on the anthro website. I debated whether or not to share it here because it's my favorite get-expensive-things-for-cheap magic and it only works because not many people know to do it, but as long as you promise not to tell anyone else, I'll share:
I put overpriced items in my cart on the anthro website and then forget about them for months. Then, like magic, I come back to the cart and the item's price has been slashed twice; while it has vanished from the sale section of the website, this beautiful thing is still sitting in my cart, available for purchase, one last lonely orphan skirt size 4 which has survived and is miraculously 85% off. And then I buy it for $9 and give it a good home. Pretty sneaky, huh?
