April showers bring May flowers and a great reason to go “rainy day” shopping. Why stay indoors when you can look fabulous finding great deals while staying dry? No longer do rain boots, coats and umbrellas have to be boring and only functional – there are many fun and funky options to brighten those cloudy days. For kids, I found an adorable Carter’s floral hooded raincoat ($42 retail, $25 sale) and a pair of Jumping Beans pink cheetah rain boots for girls or blue camouflage for boys ($30 retail, $15 sale). For mom, rain gear can be just as cool as kids’ styles- try the Bogs Mattie Rain Boot (more of a rain “shoe” and less clunky than a boot) in a flirty floral style at REI ($70 retail, $53 sale). Target also has a fun Futai clear, purple-trimmed bubble umbrella ($20 retail, $16 sale). For a more versatile style, Overstock.com carries a DKNY classic belted trench coat in khaki or black ($85 retail, $53 sale). When the forecast calls for a chance of showers, make it your chance to splish, splash and save!
