Just like the song says, rainy days and Mondays always bring me down. But, having the right rain gear goes a long way in making a rainy day not so dreary.
A favorite trench or anorak is key. Rain boots are so cute now that they are often a fashion accessory whether or not it’s raining.
But, the must have accessory is a fun and fabulous umbrella! I try to keep a small, fold up umbrella in my car or bag if it looks like rain, but I’ve recently been smitten by the bright colors and see through bubble umbrellas by Hunter. Yes, the same folks who make the cute boots.
At $45, it might just be the best deal for Spring showers. The good thing is this means we’ll definitely have lots of May flowers!
Here’s to dressing for the weather and jumping right in to the day!

Good morning Elizabeth,
I hope that you had a wonderful Easter! We have had so much rain and wind lately that I don;t think this umbrella would have stood up to it. Although it is a cute umbrella.
As for the wells, I love them! In fact I have many pairs of the them by Le Chameau, Barbour and Hunter. Nothing like a cute boot to complete a rainy day outfit.
Have a great week!

Hope you had a very happy Easter! These umbrellas are fantastic…so stylish and love how they really cover you because we all know how much we hate a bad hair day:)
Hope your week is off to a great start.

Hello Elizabeth! I hope you had a lovely Easter and that the past two weeks have been full of fun and spring. The party you threw looked just divine. Every detail was perfect!
Rain is something we see a lot of here in Seattle (hopefully NOT when you visit) so the Hunter Wellies are never far from the door – this time of year I usually switch into them instead of UGGs for my dash to my daily Barre class. Bought the cutest blue and white umbrella when I was with PVE at the V&A so I'm ready for those showers! Although that bubble umbrella you've spotted is really something else. Just love it!
Have a spring-licious day! XOXO

You found the perfect images for this post…the first one is so YOU, and the last one is adorable. One of these umbrellas is just what I need to manage the April showers (maybe if I buy one, we won't have any showers!) Here's to Spring! xoxo

A very timely post indeed as all it has done is rain here in Mississippi for the past week! Love my Hunter boots and had not seen the umbrellas, they are so cute! You made another rainy day look appealing!
Thank you for posting the umbrellas. I need an umbrella and those would be perfect choice!
