April showers bring May flowers…or so they say. If we’re gonna put up with a guaranteed 30 days of rain for fresh blooms, at least let’s look cute while doing it, shall we?
I know I’ve lived in the Northeast my whole entire life, but I’m sorry. I have not gotten used to how the weather influences life. Like when it rains, no errands or gym (is this just me?), subways are delayed, appearances are ruined…bed, where are you?! After surviving what feels like a million blustery days, I’ve decided: embrace the not-so-sunny weather and make it work. How? Cute (and affordable) rain wear!
On a typical rainy NYC day, you’ll find me in my Sperry’s and a trench. If it’s really rainy, or extra windy (what is with this wind???), I’ll pull out the big guns: my wellies. Either way, I always carry my Longchamp because it’s waterproof and I can fit shoes to change into in there.
The biggest problem with the rain though, is what happens once you’re inside. Hello hair, you’re awful. Marylin Manson, is that you?! It’s tough to feel on your A-game when you’re waterlogged, so I also threw some waterproof and appearance-saving products into the medly. No one wants to feel like the wet dog of the group, so why should you?
Did I miss anything vital to rainy day survival? LMK!
