Ah, rainy April is here.  As my garden-loving grandma says, “April showers bring May flowers.”  Well, look who woke up on the sunny side of her orthopedic pillow.  Actually, I appreciate her rainy day positivity.  Just because it’s gray and dreary doesn’t mean our wardrobe should follow suit.  We might as well look our best and brightest no matter how many puddles we’re dodging, right?

Enough hiding our fashionable selves behind black umbrellas and tan boots.  It’s time to step out in rainy day clothes and accessories that are as practical and playful as the rest of our outfit (and personality).  Good-bye gray, hello cheery styles and notice-me hues.  Spring’s Pantone colors include Poppy Red, African Violet and Lemon Zest anyway, so all the more reason to brave the elements with color.

May flowers Sure.  Even better, here are 10 rainy day items to make any wardrobe bloom.
