And when it rains on your parade...

...look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow. 

Gilbert K. Chesterton 

It is definitely fall in New England. The leaves are a good sign, sure, but the rain...oh the rain. It's misty and humid and my hair looks like a hot mess this time of year. Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of hunkering down with my DVR, so instead I add a little extra hair balm and get on with my day. It's just a little harder getting out of bed when it's pitch black outside.

The fact is, I appreciate the beauty of rain. Plus, there are some great clothes and accessories associated with wet weather. Here's to finding the silver lining on a gray day.

Rainy day outfits can be so chic! Sometimes chic equals cold and wet, but it doesn't have to be that way. Cardis, boots, and cute umbrellas can make for a comfortable, envy-worthy look.

Candy Spill Rain Boot

I've seen these in the NYC store. They are whimsical and wonderful. If I'm going to wear rain boots, I like to go all out. How often do grownups get the opportunity to be a kid again? Rain boots offer just that.

Bogs Classic Mid Vintage boots

I own a pair of mid-rise Bogs. I wasn't sure what I thought about them at first, but they are SO comfortable! Because of them, my feet stay dry and warm throughout the fall and winter.

Boden Rainyday Mac

I'm obsessed with this raincoat...and it's finally on sale. I really hope it's worth the price, because it must be mine.

Jubilee Dot Mini Umbrella

Target has no shortage of cute, colorful umbrellas. I have three, and resist the urge to buy more every time I visit...there are always new cute prints. Plus, they are compact and inexpensive. What else can you ask for, really?

TGIF, Friends!
