Believe it or not, spring has sprung. This piece of news brings along a lot of happiness for the residents of Boston; it means the disgusting winter is finally over, and summer is only a few months away. The downside of spring is that the weather changes a lot and we are visited by my personal enemy: rain. But April showers don’t necessarily have to dampen your mood; you can make a splash in all the cute rain gear that’s popular this year
My recommended list of rainy day must haves is:
Rain boots: Yes they may make you look like a gardener but let’s face it, they’re the only shoes that won’t get ruined when puddle hoping.
Boot liners: To keep your feet warm inside those rain boots.
Umbrellas: Since this season is all about pastel colors, your umbrella should be no exception. Take cover under a baby pink umbrella that instantly adds sweetness to any look.
Trench coat: We all go through the constant spring dilemma where it’s not cold enough to wear a coat, yet not warm enough to leave the house without something on. This is where trench coats come in handy, since they’re the perfect solution for when it’s too warm for a coat and too cold for a light jacket. You can opt for a more classic model or take advantage of the fact that this season’s collections are full of color and buy a bright colored one or one with a funky print.
Hairy situation: Let’s face it, rainy days and good hair is impossible to achieve. If you see its drizzling outside it probably means frizz for your locks. The best solution or prevention method to avoid Diana Ross hair is to wear it up. Now a lot of people are completely opposed to wearing their hair up because it makes them feel less feminine, but celebrities such as Blake Lively, who constantly wears her hair in high ponytails and experiments with braids, has made wearing your hair up an effortless way to look glamorous. And as Pablo Picasso said: “it is when a girl wears her hair up that you can tell if she is truly beautiful.”
