I don't like the rain in Europe. It's always cold, and usually accompanied by a drop in temperature and a wind that chills you to the bone. It's a nuisance and an inconvenience. Or maybe that's just England. I do like the rain in Asia. More specifically, South East Asia, where you find yourself caught in a sudden torrential downpour, the skies opening up and releasing all they hold for the better part of an hour before suddenly, a blue sky returns and it's as though nothing ever happened, the sun shining merrily for the rest of the day. Shanghai isn't quite like this, it leans a little more to the former, rain that waxes and wanes all through the day or evening, occasionally reducing to a drizzle for a while before mustering up some more strength and coming down full force again. 

After two weeks in Bali, Jarv returned home to London and I took a quick detour to Shanghai to see my family. When the rain threatened to ruin plans for an evening shoot, my dad suggested I take out my new rain boots that I'd picked up in Tokyo instead. So we ventured out into the rain for an hour or so, and I didn't mind it at all. No bitter wind, no freezing temperatures. Just a good excuse to splash my new shoes around in some puddles.

Wearing: 
Coat from Korea, similar here and here
Louis Vuitton scarf, similar here
Chelsea boots from Tokyo, similar here
Bag from Charles & Keith, similar here

  1. You look so beautiful, Kamara! I love your coat and those rain boots look so chic and great with the jeans! I've heard about the rain in London and how it gets real cold, so I totally understand you, not the best temp conditions for rain. I love when it rains in the Caribbean, though! The weather doesn't drop and it only lasts for a couple of minutes and then back to the beautiful sun; love it! I hope you have an amazing week ahead, beauty, and thanks so much for the inspiration!

  6. Funny, living in Germany, I really missed the heavy rain :) I also have the idea that it's the other way around, when it rains in Winter, the temperature goes up a bit. I have no arguments against the wind part, though, I could do without it for the most part...

  10. Love that these rain boots are short! I cannot pull off the tall ones, so I could definitely get behind these! And your pictures are stunning!
