While I may be sick to death of rain, I have to admit that this print is rather lovely to look at. GarneyGirl: you done good.
That's a good question, Creedence Clearwater Revival. A very, very good question.
I don't know about you, Internets, but I have been having a soggy little old April. I know April is generally known for its rain, but the amount of rain we've been getting this month is somewhere between ridiculous and Biblical. And before you start thinking that I'm leaning a little too far towards exaggeration, I would just like to take this time to inform you that the creeks around here have already flooded once, and there's something rather unsettling about seeing a park with ducks swimming through it as opposed to by it.
Yeah. Pretty much the only thing that is keeping this never-ending rain thing from being straight-up Biblical is that I haven't seen anybody building an ark yet. Emphasis on the word "yet." And to make matters worse, I'm willing to bet that these rains aren't liable to let up just because it's a new month, either.
So just on the off chance that May is as damp as April's been, here's something handy I'm sure we all could use: rain hoods/scoodies. Because sometimes umbrellas just aren't feasible.
First up, we've got this fairly heavy-duty hood, complete with cheerfully bright fleece lining and some serious-business snaps. Which, to my mind, makes it perfect for those of you slogging though your spring somewhere a bit further north on the globe.
Who says rain gear has to be dark and dreary? The weather does a fine enough job of that on its own, so why not fight back with an irrepressibly bright scoodie?
And if flowers aren't your thing, there's one over at the store that has a cupcake pattern. I highly suggest you go check it out.
For those of you who prefer something a little bit more lightweight, might I suggest this upcycled hood? It's made from an old checkered scarf.
And speaking of upcycled, here's a hood that was made from repurposed umbrella material:
And what's more, there are different styles to choose from and you can request one made from the selection of materials available in their store, so you can have a totally original rain hood that is definitely going to keep your hair dry. Seriously--the only thing cooler than all of this would be if, y'know, it would stop raining so stinkin' much.
Well, that's it for today. Here's wishing you the weather you've been desperately wanting, and see you next week!
