It’s rainy season again! While most of us would prefer to curl up at home with a good book and some hot cocoa, you have to go outside sometime, right? Here are a few tips for keeping warm and dry in the rain:
Finding the right coat:
My go to trench coat (in the third picture) is from H&M two seasons ago but I can guarantee that you’ll find a similar one if you go right now. Forever 21 actually has some nice ones this season so check them out! At the moment I’m actually looking for a nice khaki trench like Lulu’s but I haven’t had any luck. Anyone have anyadvice?
Another alternative is to try wearing a cape! H&M has this AMAZING black coat in stock that both Lulu and Linda have. I actually really lucked out with my Pendelton cape and found it in a local thrift store. If you’re looking for an online alternative, Ebay and Etsy are also two great places to find vintage capes. Ebay stores like Treasure Chest Vintage and Bleubird Vintage usually have some nice ones in stock so keep an eye out!
Finding the right shoes:
Although I usually wear my usual lace up booties on days like these, rainboots are definitely a must have. I actually have my eye on these ridiculously cheap red rainboots from Target! Check out the whole selection here.
I like how this turned out to be a thinly veiled way to talk about my obsession with capes, haha. Ahh well. Stay tuned for the Q&A video!
Looking for an umbrella? The one in the pictures is from H&M but I really want a bubble umbrella which I hear is really good for keeping dry when it’s windy. I love these umbrellas from Target and Urban Outfitters!
