Now this is crazy. We sprinted head first into April didn’t we? I’m not sure about where you live, but spring has sprung around here. Of course the first sign that spring has arrived came by way of these gorgeous cherry blossoms in and around Washington DC.
Yes, we braved the crowds during the cherry blossom festival and got some awesome pics to prove it.
And then there’s the unpredictable spring like weather. We’ve had some rain here and there and the wind caused me to play “find the trash can”, two weeks in a row. Now that April is here, I also expect a deluge of rain any day now.
So, I’m kicking off this April fashion round-up with a tribute to rainy day style.
This kids’ yellow raincoat looks so much better than the one I had as a child many years ago. A flash of bright yellow means that you won’t be searching around for your child on a crowded day at the park and the blue lining is just so cute. The best part is all that cuteness costs less than $25.
Have you ever dropped your phone in water? Don’t tell me where… Pelican micro wallet offers a waterproof place for your phone, credit cards, keys and more.
White jeans are a true wardrobe essential. What sucks though is when those white jeans get dirty or get wet. Old Navy sells these waterproof white jeans that make keeping your jeans pristine a bit easier. According to the Old Navy website, “Stay-White” technology will repel stains and spills. Now that’s the kind of white jeans I need. I’m in the market for a new pair of white jeans and this may be it.
In Britain, rain boots are called Wellies, short for Wellingtons and they are a pretty big deal. What’s not to like about these Hunter rain boots? They come in several colors but, the power blue boots have caught my eye and they’re also on sale.
Staying dry doesn’t have to mean that you loose your sense of style. Details on the jacket like the removeable hood, drawstring waist and fishtail back make this jacket a solid investment piece.
An umbrella should keep you dry, whether it’s windy or not. A good draft of wind will turn your day into a wet soggy mess. This windproof umbrella resists winds up to 60 mph, is available in several colors and have a “100 Day Zero Risk Money Back Guarantee“. Oh, and it comes down quickly for easy storage too.
