I have a love/hate relationship with the rain.

When I was little, I loved the rain. I loved sloshing about in puddles and since I grew up in Florida, (normally the Sunshine State) I realized that catching big rain droplets in my mouth was the closest I'd ever come to catching snowflakes on my tongue.

Once I grew up, began wearing mascara and actually cared about the frizz factor of my hair, I began to hate the rain. I came to terms that contrary to what my favorite downcast day nursery rhyme had taught me, the rain, rain would not go away and come again some other day. The Rain was here to stay and I was going to have to deal with it.

Here's how.

Step one - Get a cute raincoat. I decided that my first step towards making peace with rainy days was to treat myself to a rainjacket that not only protected my cute outfit underneath, but looked cute on its own. Be prepared come rain or come shine with a non-bulky rain jacket that you can store in your purse or glove compartment. I adore my yellow Jacket in a Packet raincoat from OldNavy. It folds up into a tiny lightweight bag and is steps above your basic poncho. {Sorry no link guys, they're all sold out.}

Step two - Get a cute umbrella, ella ella like this Big Fish Umbrella from Modcloth. Seriously, who can feel unhappy looking up at these little fishies getting wet?

Step three - Get a cute pair of Rainboots. These Chooka Womens Rainboots from Online Shoes are tall and waterproof with a cotton knit lining that absorbs moisture and a heavy-treaded rubber sole for klutzos like me who are prone to slips and falls even on dry ground. Plus, the print is downright Geishadorable.

Go ahead, rain on my parade.
