STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stand Under My Umbrella-ella-ella.

Style Advice of the Week

Rainy days got you down? Pick yourself up with a printed umbrella.

Bottom line, umbrellas are extremely underrated. Yes, they can be annoying to carry around and complicated to wrap back up, then there is the rule about never opening it up inside!  Plus, you can never get them closed up on the first try. All in all, they seem to be more complicated than they should be. However, I’m here to argue that this negative connotation needs to be changed. I don’t know about you, but the hood on my North Face rain coat just doesn’t cut it anymore. Embarrassingly, I may have even resorted to running from building to building on campus.

When I saw this Fashionista I noticed her umbrella right away. Besides the fact that it matches her teal colored denim perfectly, it has my favorite colors! I will admit that the paisley pattern from Vera Bradley caught my attention and put an instant smile on my face. 

Everyone knows the saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” Instead of dreading the rain, take advantage of the change in weather and open up an umbrella to brighten up your day. They come in a million different styles and patterns. Why wait for May when you can have flowers in April with a print umbrella? Because they come in small sizes, they are easy to take along with you and then put it in your bag when you’re done. This way, every time we see a rain cloud we don’t have to automatically whip out the legging, boots and windbreaker rain gear (guilty as charged).
