Hi ladies, it’s Anna from Fash Boulevard again. I’ll never forget my first day of college. There was a looming thunderstorm threatening to wreak havoc and erase any chance of a good hair day. But, armed and ready with a super cute printed umbrella, I was prepared to accept the challenge. Halfway into my trek through campus, the skies peeled opened and unleashed an epic downpour, accompanied by an equally epic cyclone of wind. It was around this time, I was reminded of the superpowers this gloomy-combo possesses, as water began hitting me sideways and completely defeating the purpose of my umbrella.
After surviving my first day soaking wet and freezing cold, I’ve been properly stocking my wardrobe with waterproof gear and outsmarting mother nature ever since. Below are a few items to keep you dry during the colder months ahead…
