If you haven't already experienced the first rain of the season, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it's coming! For some tips on how to cope with a wet and dreary rainy day, click here to

  • Before you wear your nice leather shoes and handbags, make sure you weather proof and scotchguard anything that could get ruined in the rain
  • Buy more than one umbrella. Keep one in your car, one at your office, and one at home
  • Invest in a good pair of rain boots. The worst part of the rain is getting the bottom of your pants wet so tuck them into your boots
  • Remember to bring everything in from outside such as patio cushions, hammocks, pool toys, etc
  • If you have hair that doesn't mesh well with wet weather, get a good rain hat that will keep you dry and looking chic all at the same time
  • It's a good idea to make sure your windows are sealed properly before the heavy rain starts so you don't ruin any furniture or grow mold
  • Just like the Sunday night blues, it's easy to get a little down in the dumps once the weather turns. Keep your spirits up by embracing the change and try to look forward to the holidays, good movies, cozy sweaters, skiing, nice fires, and soothing soups

For those of you who are already living with the rain, please fill in any blanks below. Stay dry!
