In My Cart: Rainy Day Gear to Brighten Your Mood

The only reason I know that cats aren’t psychopaths is because they dislike the rain. Thank you.

I hate the rain. I distrust anyone who says she enjoys it.

“But it’s romantic!”

So are a plethora of dry activities.

“But it’s perfect for getting cozy in your bed and listening to music!”

So are hangovers.

The only things the rain is good for besides nourishing crops and general terrestrial hydration are: ruining hair, ruining suede, ruining commutes, ruining moods, ruining days.

But not anymore, Eeyore! Not when you have a few key pieces that make you excited for a little precipitation.

Swipe through the above like we’re playing Hot or Not and I’ll explain why you should thank the sky instead of cry and no it does not include Bill Nye the Science Guy.

  • Let’s not forget that rain ruins velvet! A friend of mine has a pretty pair of velvet loafers and once she walked barefoot in the rain because she didn’t want to ruin the shoes. My reaction: I agree with you, sista’

      When I looked at the draft of 7699 dollars, I have faith that brother of my friend was like really generating cash in his free time with his PC..yi His aunt’s neighbor has done this for only 11 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car.

    I LOVE RAIN more than anything. Not kidding, it makes my day every time. My hair even looks magical after being in the rain. COME AT ME. (Please don’t I admire you too much, Leandra.)

    I don’t have a bright or colorful raincoat but I have a black DKNY one that is probably the coolest that a raincoat could be?? Like if you were a spy in London you might have a raincoat like this. It does have the most useless hood ever though so that sucks.

    I think rain is great for being inside and watching, or for being outside and thinking about how warm you will be as soon as you get home. Maybe it’s crazy but I kind of enjoy that sort of cozy anticipation.

    I have never lost an umbrella but I’ve had plenty flip inside out due to the wind. Therefore I can not support an expensive umbrella.

    I do have one that doesn’t fold up all nice and compact, and that one never flips inside out.

    • Isn’t it mildly satisfying, though, when you can catch it with the wind in the opposite direction so that it returns to its normal state? This is therapeutic to me until I remember that I’m soaking wet

  • I’m normally a HUGE fan of rain. But today I was NOT feeling it. I normally wear leggings and my boots, with a sweater or oversized shirt to layer up with.

    I am a Sunny girls, if if we are talking about rain, the trench is the IT piece! 😉
