Today it’s pouring down rain here in North Carolina and luckily I’m staying home. But if I was going out in this dreary downpour I know the first thing I would grab would be my rain boots (puddle jumpers) and my cheery school bus yellow raincoat. Some things are rainy day must-haves.
Who wants to run out in the pouring down rain and get soaked from head to toe? You know how it goes. Your hair gets wet and if it’s like mine, starts to be a mess. Your shoes get wet from the puddles and then your socks are wet. Not to mention your clothes! It’s time to invest in some grown-up, pretty rainy weather gear.
The main rainy must-haves that you need are a good raincoat, rain boots and of course an umbrella. But you don’t have to pick drab colors just because the weather is gloomy. Pick something in cheerful colors that will make you feel great no matter what the weather is doing. I scoured Amazon and found some really great rainy weather essentials to brighten up any dreary day.
A good raincoat is something that everyone needs. You can wear them year-round by layering under them. Waterproof ones are especially fantastic to keep you dry since the water just rolls right off. And the great thing is, you don’t have to spend a lot. They also look super cute and fashionable.
This cute yellow raincoat is waterproof and windproof. It also comes in 12 different colors or styles. It also has pockets on the inside and outside so nothing gets wet. It zips and snaps, has an adjustable pull string hood and you can even cinch in the waist.
Martha Stewart Raincoat
This classic rain slicker is by Martha Stewart and comes in 3 colors and has roomy pockets. It’s lightweight and protects you from wind and rain. It also snaps up the front and the hood has a pull string for easy adjustments.
Avogue Rain Jacket
This raincoat comes with its own travel pack so you can take it anywhere. It’s a lightweight, breathable windbreaker-style raincoat. It’s waterproof, windproof, and soft to the touch. Even the zipper is waterproof! This one also protects you from the cold and it’s quick drying. This one is perfect whether you’re running errands or hiking in the woods.
I LOVE my rain boots! I actually wear them to run errands and have even been known to wear them to church in the pouring rain. I always thought rainboots were just for wearing when working in the garden, but not anymore. Rainboots look great with jeans, dresses, or shorts. I always get the best compliments when I wear them. Consider buying them a half size up because they tend to run small.
These cheery yellow ankle rainboots are waterproof, with a soft comfortable inner sole. This makes them great to wear whether you’re walking the dog or meeting friends for lunch.
I just love the color of these! These are classic tall rain boots that come in 28 different colors or styles. You can even get them in a pearlescent rainbow. They are lightweight and waterproof.
This is something I definitely need, a new umbrella. There are so many styles to choose from. I prefer ones that are easy to deal with when you’re running errands. They need to open and close easily, be lightweight and hopefully stand up to strong winds. But I also want one that’s pretty and I think these fit the bill.
Compact Umbrella by Lanxiry Store
This umbrella is simply gorgeous. It’s called Starry Sky. If you’re looking for a travel umbrella that fits in your purse, this is the one. It’s lightweight and fits in purses, backpacks, and more thanks to its compact size. It’s wind-resistant and waterproof with UV protection. It’s also quick drying.
Kate Spade New York Clear Umbrella
This clear umbrella has a large dome with pretty white flowers that is easy to see through. Great for when you need to pull the umbrella down low. It’s great for walking the dog or when you need a lot of coverage from the rain.
I couldn’t resist including a bright and sunny yellow umbrella. These come in over 28 different colors or styles. They’re automatic opening umbrellas with a nonslip hand grip. Folds down to fit in your purse or backpack and comes with a matching bag.
