But until we get the flowers and bright blue skies we have quite a bit of rain to prepare for. Many people think of rain gear as an afterthought—but I see it as an opportunity to have a little fun with your wardrobe. My favorite way to bring some cheer to rainy days with a graphic umbrella. They come in so many great prints and patterns. I keep a brightly patterned compact umbrella in my purse and have a large, classic umbrella for outdoor adventures and events.
I also think a trench is a great way to make a rainy day better. There is one catch, I have not yet found one that I love. I always read that the iconic coat can be worn for years if you find one with the right fit. Well, that is all great and dandy if you can find a classic and versatile with a trench coat that fits just right. My three biggest questions right now are (1) what shade of tan (2) long or short (3) how much do I want to spend?
Once I find the perfect long trench – right now I am thinking I want one in a light camel with a belt that hits in the right place I will be sure to share, especially as finding the perfect trench is on my 101 list from yesterday! My goal is to find one like LMK from Inga Riva – hers fits perfectly!
