TOP 7: Rainy Day Essentials

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Rainy days are here! I know most of us prefer dry, sunny days over a gloomy weather but just because it's dark and damp outside doesn't mean we can't enjoy the day. This is why I decided to share with you my rainy day essentials so we can all have a little bit of sunshine everywhere we go.

Whatever the weather, having an umbrella is an essential for me because it keeps the sun off during summer as well as the unexpected downpour on rainy days. I never go out without an umbrella and my current favorite is the Esprit 4 section Easymatic solid umbrella. I got it for Php 799.75 in Robinson's Galleria which may seem expensive but I guarantee you'd consider getting one after hearing its features.

First of all this umbrella is compact and light weight yet tough and of excellent quality. When folded, it only measures 8.5 inches long and 2 inches thick so it fits even in my small sling bag. What's even better is it magically transforms into a standard-sized personal umbrella. It has a steady pole, is wind proof and offers UV protection. It's also made of water repellent material so drying time is minimal. Actually most of the time I just brush off the raindrops and it dries almost instantly. Best of all, this opens and closes automatically with a light press on the button.

I'm not so much into jackets since my daily wardrobe almost always includes a cardigan or blazer but when I'm just running errands on a rainy day I usually grab a light jacket. I really like the ones from Uniqlo because of the good quality and reasonable price. I'm loving the trench coat with hood because of the light fabric and water resistant material. If you're not into trench coats, Uniqlo also has windbreaker type of jackets having the same waterproof material and light fabric. I love that they can be worn casually and set aside when not in use without taking too much space in your bag. Best of all they are priced reasonably.

Since the time I tried on jelly shoes I knew I found my feet's match. My current favorite footwear during rainy days and any day actually are these Crocs Eve Graphic Slingback which I bought during their Trinoma branch sale. I love the stylish floral prints on a clean white background. The pointy toes are what lured me more because they made my feet look feminine. I also like that the sling has just the right height with open heels that are slip proof. What's even more wonderful about this pair is that they're extremely lightweight and comfortable.

Of course a nice warm drink is great on a rainy day and to keep yourself and your drink warm, an insulated flask is a good way to go. It doesn't have to be fancy but make sure you bring one that does its sole job of keeping your drink warm. Mine is this really cute flask by Thermos made exclusively for Starbucks in collaboration with Paul & Joe given to me as a gift. I like that it's just the right size for my grip and that it can hold a good amount of drink. More importantly, I like how it effectively keeps my drink warm for hours.

We all know that cold weather can dry the lips hence making them prone to chapping. This is why we need a trusted lip balm like the Vaseline lip therapy. I like that it comes in a tiny tub that you can easily stash in your retouch kit. It's made of pure petroleum jelly and has a light rose fragrance that doesn't linger. This variety also gives your lips a rosy, pink finish so you can wear it alone or under any lip color.

You'd be surprised at how a waterproof tote can come really handy during a downpour. I like how I can put my bag in the tote to further protect it from getting wet in the rain. My favorite is a colorful folding tote I got from Landmark for Php 99. It folds into a small zipped-up pouch that you can bring with you everyday to use for other purposes like an extra shopping bag.
