Rainy days during the second week of a government shutdown means one thing: Comfort.
At some point, you’re going to get wet — Whether you’re splashed by dirty street water from a cab that cut it a little too close, you slip on the Metro escalators & fall straight on your bum leaving wet imprints of the escalator pattern on your wool skirt, or you get those infuriating droplets from your umbrella that somehow always find you & your leather bag. There’s nothing worse than being uncomfortable & soggy in your 9-5 attire during your treacherous rainy day commute so eliminate the factor you can control early on. Wear pieces you feel your best in [other than pjs], bring on the layers [chunky knits & raincoats], & for goodness sake, invest in a pair of rain boots. Instead of selling my soul for a pair of Hunter’s I stalked Gilt & snagged a pair once the sale went live so keep an eye out for those suckers. & shop a few of my rainy day favorites below.
