April Showers…

Stylish Rain Gear -Umbrellas

April showers do in fact bring May flowers, so it’s hard to be too mad at them.  Living in a city that boasts nearly seasonless weather change, I have to admit that I actually enjoy the occasional downpour and downright miss a good old-fashioned Texas thunderstorm!  However, they can put a major kink in a day’s plans so it’s best to be stylishly prepared.  I put together this post for Bethenny.com earlier this week and decided it was too good not to share with you guys here!  Ladies, gird your loins…

Stylish Rain Gear - Jackets

These jackets are almost too cute to save for a rainy day!  One of the floral ones is definitely on my list!

Stylish Rain Gear

It’s hard to pick a favorite here.  I love the added wedge but am partial to a chic black and brown color combo!  Which ones are your favorites?  (It should be noted that I currently own three pairs of rain boots… which is a total waste of cute boots here in southern California!)

Stylish Rain Gear -Totes

It rained on two occasions while we were in Australia.  Both times I had to resort to placing my suede Balenciaga bag underneath my shirt, lest it get ruined.  From now on, I am never leaving home without one of these nearby.
