Since rainy days are inevitable, make sure your closet is stocked with pieces that will keep you looking polished, even if your hair is rebellious. Umbrellas come and go, but every City Girl knows that rain boots are the true investment. Steer clear of Lisa Frank rainbow patterns— a black, red, grey or brown boot will work with most outfits and give you a clean look overall.
My sister has this saying, which is more of a justification for purchasing something new, that something is “for life”. This means you only need to buy a high quality version of it once and you’re set. Almost always, these are items are more than she would be willing to spend for trendier pieces, but their timelessness is worth the few extra dollars.
