April Showers + 5 Rainy Day Must Haves



Bow Back Top (from H&M, not yet available online – similar here & here)  |  Rain Jacket (less than $40)  |  Jeans  |  Rain Boots  |  Floppy Hat  |  Umbrella  |  Handbag  |  Ring  |  Watch

Shop The Look:

Happy Monday – I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I was expecting to have a low-key, boring weekend this past weekend but all of that changed when Drew surprised me on Friday evening by coming to visit!  We ended up going to the Dallas Stars game (my first one!) on Saturday and it was so much fun.  Sunday was a lazy, rainy day… which brings us to today’s look!  It’s been raining a ton here lately (April showers…) which means I’ve been living in these rain boots (must-have #1), this rain jacket (#2), and have been using this umbrella (#3) non-stop (I also rounded up a few of my favorite rainy day items back in this post!).  These are all rainy-day essentials, but a new must-have that I’ve been using lately is wearing a hat like this one when it’s rainy out (must-have #4)!  I don’t know why it took me so long to think of wearing a hat when it is raining… it’s the easiest way to keep your head dry when an umbrella or jacket hood just doesn’t cut it.  Another rainy-day essential (#5) is a nylon tote like this Longchamp one – I first bought mine when I was interning in New York (because literally everyone had one!) and to this day 5 years later it is one of my most-used bags.  Nylon is perfect for a rainy day because the water will just bead right off of it – sometimes I’ll even put whatever leather handbag I’m using at the time inside of the nylon tote to protect it from the rain.  They are also the best travel bags!!

Thanks for stopping by!
