Rain, Rain ... Fashion Don't Go Away

It was a gloomy, doomy day today in Halifax. They skies opened up and let loose from start to finish. I do enjoy a rainy day - curled up with a good book and some tea perhaps. However, today I was at work watching mother nature unfold. And when she rained it poured terrible fashion mishaps. 

I know it is a huge inconvenience to women when it rains. Your hair frizzes up and never looks quit right, your footwear has to be carefully planned and you need to pack a second pair and your outfit must be weather savvy. 

Here are a few tips on how to stay right during a rainy day.

1. Don't bother styling your hair. A freshly washed and blow dryed do' will not fair well in bad weather. Skip the shower for your locks and throw them up in a top knot. You will have little to no frizz and it should stay fairly in tact through out the day.

2. I don't know about you, but I HATE trekking through the city with wet feet - they feel gross and dirty, yuck. This is a pain in the butt, but it has to be done. Ladies, pack a pair of inside shoes and pull on your rubber boots for slushing around outside. Don't be one of those silly people on the corner waiting for the light to change prancing around to avoid the puddles. It's raining, you're going to get wet. So take the proper precautions.

3. Dress comfy. Don't wear jeans, you're going to chafe and be sticky. Don't wear a dress, you're going to feel sticky. Wear a bottom that is going to breath well after getting damp - like a jersey, cotton or jegging. I wore a legging today with a tank and a printed car coat and I felt pretty good going outside.
