As someone who loves summer, spending time outdoors and warm weather, I can’t tell you what an unexpected and welcome relief it has been to get rain this morning in Northern California! We had our first taste of fall on Saturday when we had our first drop of rain, thunder and lightning, but this morning it was pouring, so much so that I had a hard time hearing one of my interviews I was conducting. Rain is a rarity, especially with the horrible drought we’ve experienced this year and the horrendous fires that have taken place as of late in this beautiful state I love so much. I have to say I had a hard time believing that we’d actually get cooler weather, yesterday it was sunny and 90 degrees. I was ill prepared to say the least! It’s been quite some time since I’ve had to even think about buying a raincoat, and here I was dressed in a t-shirt and shorts. Here in Northern California, we’re all willing and ready to upgrade our raincoats and umbrellas, we all need the rain! Just next time, I’ll be a little bit more prepared!
Here are a few of my favorite raincoats, perfect for a fall rainstorm!
Love The North Face’s warm lightweight hooded jackets, especially this Venture Lightweight Jacket/Rain Coat in Sugary Pink!
Who doesn’t love polkadots? This Helly Hansen Nine K Rain Jacket is so fun!
Quintessential Burberry raincoats!
Love a fab khaki raincoat, especially this popular Calvin Klein double breasted trench coat that’s adored by many!
