Look cute in the rain!

Crash! 

Just as I was about to take What I Wore Wednesday pictures the downpour began... and not just a little rain... head for Noah’s Ark the flood is upon us :) So I took a new angle for my post... 
How to look cute in the rain!


#1 Choose a basic ponytail... If you start with something simple you won’t be as disappointed if the rain dampens it. Nothing is worse than spending an hour on curls only to look like a frizzy poodle after 5 minutes.


#2 Wrap a cute fashion scarf around your hair... Yes, moisture still gets in, but it can help preserve your look when you double team that with an umbrella.



#3 Wear flip flops. I hate soaking wet shoes... At least with flip flops your feet will dry.

#4 Wear light materials that will dry quickly. After 10 minutes back inside you’ll be good as new.

#5 Smile and embrace the rain! If you are already soaked, quit fighting it... splash in every puddle... know that you are living the end of every romantic movie where the heavens open up, the hero arrives, and they kiss in the rain!



After the rain everything seems greener, there is a beautiful fresh smell outside. This reminds me of life when it seems I’m caught in a storm or keep landing in puddles. 

The puddles aren’t going away so you can cry over wet shoes or laugh in the moment and wait for the rainbow!

In there a puddle in your life that needs a laugh?

  7. Be careful with flip-flops in the rain. I used to think it was a great idea, way better than soaked sneakers, but that was before I slipped and fell on my butt a couple of time. Wet flip-flops + grocery store floors = SUPER SLIPPERY!
