I have to admit, this Florida girl may not love snow, but I can do the rain. NYC has already gotten a head start on the whole April showers thing. (It absolutely poured on Saturday and we had one lightning/thunder on Sunday.) If this signals the end of winter and the beginning of spring? Color me happy.
(Also, Mother Nature, feel free to have May flowers make an early arrival as well.)
The one major difference about Florida and NYC rain, however, is that we spend a lot of time commuting by foot here. In Florida, we duck in and out of our cars and parking garages. (Except for high school. Sheesh. Those outdoor hallways and weeks on rain on end always meant soggy shoes and wet hemlines.)
I tend to go through umbrellas like it’s my job… but mostly because I buy the cheapies from Duane Reade basically every time it rains. (#CaughtOffGuard.) After this weekend, and two seriously destroyed $5 drugstore umbrellas, I’m ready to invest in a cute umbrella or two.
Hello April showers, please do bring lots of May flowers!!!
Which umbrella pick is your favorite?
Of course, April is giving everyone their fair share of rain. It seems only fitting that I do a post on what to wear for rainy days!
#1: Long & Loose oxford shirt, leggings, Hunter Wellingtons
#2: Striped boat shirt, boot cut jeans, Bean Boots
#3: Bright sweater, black slacks, Burberry galoshes
#4: Cardigan, skirt, Hunter Wellingtons
What’s your “go-to” outfit for the rain?
It’s the second day of April, and the second rainy day in a row. My lifesaver for days like these: Vineyard Vines Nor’Easter Jacket. I find myself wearing this nearly everyday. It’s light enough for warm days, but can be layered with fleeces for colder days.
The hood makes you look kinda like a duck, but it’s perfect for keeping your hair dry! Also, the hood can be stowed away when not in use. My favorite part is the fleece-lined pockets. It’s so nice to tuck your hands away in a warm pocket. And trust me, after a cold, wet practice on the Potomac, it’s downright amazing.
I’m really quite sick of this weather, especially since my umbrella is still kinda broken. Weather.com had been telling me all week that today would be 65 and sunny. I planned to wear a Lilly dress and everything! I woke up this morning and the high was 62 and rainy/cloudy. I was so sad 🙁 Hmph.
Because I had an all-day poetry symposium on Tuesday for my Humanities & Writing class, our regular class was cancelled this morning. I kept checking my cellphone to make sure I wasn’t going to be late. It gave me time to study for my accounting quiz though… AH I’m nervous!
