It’s Raining, It’s Pouring... what in the world should I wear?
Ok, so hurricane season is here and we all know what that means... rain, rain, and more rain right here in our very own sunshine state. I don’t know about you but whenever it’s raining I feel like I have nothing to wear or I feel way too blah to even try. When looking for something to wear on a rainy day staying dry is usually goal numero uno and not slipping and eating it is next in line. Both of these goals already eliminate half of our SoFlo wardrobe and hair choices with just the first couple of raindrops and that is truly frustrating. So what do you do if you want to be practical and stylish at the same time? Well, every dark cloud has a silver lining. Here are some simple, clever, and creative ways to rock it on a rainy day.
The key is to do the exact opposite of how the rain makes you feel. If you feel lazy or blah, have fun with your outfit and let how great you look brighten up your day. Let’s take it from the top... In my experience, Florida humidity and letting your hair down doesn’t always mix so a rainy day is the perfect time to try some of those fun up-dos you never got around to doing. Or if you’re not feelin’ the up-do try a hat! A hat can instantly dress up a simple outfit. A scarf is not only reserved for cold weather anymore it’s another accessory that instantly makes a simple outfit more noticeable.
A medium length rain coat, cardigan, or sweater are perfect for rainy days. Dark leggings are my personal go to on a rainy day because I can wear them under skirts dresses and shorts and they look super cute with boots. Speaking of boots... cowgirl, combat, classic rain boots are all great for keeping your feet dry and your look fun, fresh, and upbeat. Last but not least, wedges are heels that are easier to maneuver around those slippery puddles and transform any outfit from casual to chic just like that (imagine me snapping my fingers). The rain can suck sometimes but now, since you have been properly equipped, the next time it rains you’ll be ready to take on the day!
