We are currently in the middle of what I’ll call the monsoon season where I live. Almost every day we’ve had either a light sprinkle of rain all the way to a drenching down pour. Fortunately the hardest rain has been at night (mostly). Last week I went to the market and the sky was dark. As I walked out the door, I caught myself because it was pouring rain. I mean the hard to see across the parking lot rain. I waited for a bit in the lobby of the store but decided to throw caution to the wind/rain and trekked the 100 yards or so to the car. It was raining so hard that my the time I got to my car I was soaked right down to my underpants. I get it that the earth needs the rain…but so much rain at once? It was just a bad day.
So today I selected some super fun umbrellas for the summer. Umbrellas make a bold fashion statement if you select the right one. The cost range varies from not so much to crazy expensive so set your budget ahead of time. Let’s go shopping!
I visited Bella Umbrella Shop online first. I loved the Bubble Polka Dot Pink umbrella. It retails for $40 and it’s great because it comes down deeper on the sides than standard umbrellas. Driving rain doesn’t stand a chance.

Next I love the Western Chief Kids Umbrella in Pop-Up Ladybug. How cute is this? It retails for $27.

|Van Gogh Anyone?|
Or if you’re more of a Monet person…the Galleria Monet Water Lillies Umbrella also retails at Amazon for $29.99

I love the blue skies on a rainy day with the MoMA Sky Umbrella. It retails at Amazon for $54.95.

And finally if you’re feeling frilly, go with the Lulu Triple Frill in Pink.
