Gear to Survive a Rainy Work Day

Hey y'all! I hope you're having a wonderful week so far- we are so close to the weekend! Mine has been great, however we've had wet weather all week. YUCK. For most people, rain stinks- but they go inside for their job all day and only deal with the weather when arriving and leaving. For me, rain is TERRIBLE (almost as bad as snow!) because I of the nature of my job. I'm in and out of the car all day. So, rain is basically my enemy. I've always struggled over what to wear to work on a wet days and have come up with my essential rainy day gear through trial and error over the past few years. I wanted to share these fabulous items with y'all so you too can survive a rainy work day!

Rainy Day Work Gear

Water Proof Trench. I absolutely love my London Fog trench coat. It's the perfect color khaki and has a flattering silhouette. It's great to wear with pants or dresses, and keeps my outfits dry on rainy days. I purchased the coat with a detachable liner that really comes in handy on cold, wet days!

Stylish Rain Boots. A pair of cute rain boots are a must! I love the bow detailing on the back of these, especially in comparison to my plain black pair! I love that these look like riding boots and could be worn in a professional setting.

Umbrella. This is a must- no one likes to wear wet hair to work!

Travel Mug. Rainy days call for an extra cup of coffee or tea to keep you warm. Obviously, this is another opportunity for stylish accessories. I typically use Tervis cups but this Kate Spade mug is adorable!

Scarf. If your rainy day comes with wind or cold temperatures, adding in a scarf will help keep you dry! I think few things are more miserable than we clothing.

Boot Socks. I don't have Hunter boots, but I love how these look! They have an assortment of colors that look absolutely adorable in a rain boot. They definitely keep your feet warm and dry on dreary days!

What are your rainy day essentials?


  1. that umbrella is adorable! my umbrella actually just broke yesterday, so I may go ahead and order that one right now! xx,kenz

  2. Yes rainboots are essential!
    Like you said, most people don't mind the rain because they're in an office all day...that's the case for me so I am thankful for that.
    I still like to rock my cute rainboots and rain coat though.

  3. YES to the boot socks. I can't tell you how many times my poor little ankle socks have slipped underneath the soles of my feet!

  4. Small but cute umbrellas are a must! I love the ones that can fit in your purse because then you always have them, but don't have the issue of carrying them (or in my case, constantly worrying about loosing them).

  9. A waterproof trench coat is definitely on my wish list, I love that it looks professional but still will keep me dry from all the Seattle rain.

  10. Great rainy day picks! A good pair of rainboots is a must for any closet!

  11. I need to step up my rain day game! Even though I work in an office, my commute is quite long and involves changing a few times on public transport. Just yesterday I found a hole in my rain boots, so I think it's time to splurge on Hunter boots and socks :)
