5 Things You Need for Rainy Weather


When you live where it rains a bit a lot, you know what you need to make it through the day months of rain.

We have had a pretty amazing winter so far with not a lot of rain, but the weather changed back to “normal” this week, so I thought a refresher on what to wear when you live or visit a rainy city would be helpful.

My list, in no particular order:

#1 -Rain Boots – these are pretty much standard issue to the locals and new residents.  Hunters or rain booties – you can never have enough pairs.


#2 – Rain Jackets – The trench style makes sense as it keeps more of you dry.  Lululemon or North Face seem to be the most popular ones here in town.  I have linked similar jackets here and here.



#3 – Rain Hat – not mandatory, but it’s keeps your hair dry and it’s cute.


#4 – Umbrella – It may seem obvious, but many people forget their umbrella at home or don’t even own one!   Black seems to be pretty standard umbrella colour, but it blends in too much with the grey rainy days.  Go with a bright coloured brolly to cheer up your day and to be seen by cars when you’re out walking.


#5 – Patience 

It’s rain.  Liquid sunshine.  And it will pass.  Eventually.   It’s not snow, although it would be nice to have a little of that once in a while.  You might as well put on your boots and  go jump in a puddle!

    I love it – You’re hilarious! Those wellies are lovely aren’t they? Now that we (I do all the dog walking) have a dog (new) I need some nice Hunter wellies to show off at the park 😉

    I have wanted to buy a pair of rain boots forever but with the severe draught that Southern CA is having, I just can’t justify them.

    Thank you for being a part of TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you soon!
