April showers may bring May flowers, but they can also leave you standing in front of your closet each day trying to figure out how to manage to look pulled together while staying dry. I've nailed down my rainy day essentials, so I'd thought I'd share them with you today! For me, a waterproof trench coat with a hood is perfect, since it gives you an extra layer of protection for your hair. I have a one very similar to the Michael Kors above, and it's one of the best investment pieces I own. My Hunter boots are a lifesaver, and if you're looking to appear pulled together, ditch the cutesy printed rain boots, and pick a simple single colored pair. Next up is the beauty- pull out your favorite waterproof mascara, liner, and swap your liquid foundation with a powder version to avoid looking super shiny. Finally, everyone should have a great umbrella, and why not pick out one that makes you smile and brightens a dreary day? After all, you don't want to look too serious!
