Hello April. Hello spring.
Well, almost spring! Brrrrr. It was 30°C, yesterday, here in New York City. Today, it’s low 40s°C. But, tomorrow, we are expecting typical April showers, which is going to linger for several days.
If rainy days give you the blues, not to mention some fashion anxiety, here are bright, rainy-day outfit ideas that will uplift your mood and elevate your style forecast.
1. Burberry London Lightweight Taffeta Trenchcoat $1495
Because if you’re going to invest in one trench, it should come from the best Brits in the game.
2. Umbrella Wet Dry Magic Color Changing Butterfly Print $29.99

3. H&M Lace Yellow Dress $29.99
Oh Mr. Sun please shine down on me. Maybe this dress will help bring out Mr. Sun. (My daughter was singing this song on her birthday, this past Monday, because it was raining. The Mr. Sun song was quickly followed by Rain Rain Go Away. #AdorableToddlerMoments)

Protect your beloved handbags from the elements with this clever bag raincoat. Just make sure to get the right size (mini, midi, maxi) to cover the whole handbag. Store it conveniently in your purse, with the included pouch.
