Rain, Rain, and more rain…
It’s raining. Again. Or still. Whatever. It has been raining forever. Well, for the past two weeks, anyway. That’s a lot of rain. Too much rain, if you ask me.
And it seems the rain isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, either. Better get used to it, I suppose.
But it’s not just raining all the time; it’s getting colder, too. That’s why I’m wearing a thicker parka: no more trench coats until spring… Oh well, soon it will be winter, and I will take every excuse to avoid going out. Which is more difficult than it sounds as I work 5 days a week at the moment.
But for now I’m trying to stay warm and dry. That’s what the parka is for: it’s water-resistant and it has a hood. Very practical when you’re in the middle of the Great Flood.
And yes, I’m wearing wellies (that’s rubber boots for my American readers). You know, because it’s raining. And because there’s nothing sexy about wet socks. In fact, the best way to avoid getting a cold is to keep both your neck and your feet warm and dry.
So, now you know why I always wear a scarf. And good shoes that keep my feet dry. However, when you suddenly find yourself in the middle of the Great Flood, a.k.a the rain that won’t stop, you discover that most shoes are in fact not water-proof.
In other words, there is a time and place for wellies (a.k.a rubber boots)…
parka: Phase Eight (old) / top: Gant / trousers: Marks and Spencer (old) / scarf: A+ more /
bag and umbrella: Marimekko (old) / boots: Tretorn / wristwarmers: Brora (old)
What do you wear when it’s raining?
