Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head

AprilShowers_3This past week the weather here in New York has been dreadful. It’s been dark, gloomy and rainy. All I want to do is curl up in a ball and take a nap until the sun comes out. Humidity is my archenemy. My frizzy hair and achy knees will vouch for this. But looking past the rain clouds, there is some sunshine to be had. Kid’s rainwear is awesome! I’m not saying this to sound corny, but if they made striped bumblebee rain boots in a women’s size 10 (yes, my dad was the mythical creature known as Bigfoot), I’d be out jumping for joy through the puddles. To help make these rainy days a little brighter, here are my top 5 children’s rain looks. Get ready to walk down the runway with a splash! – Jill Topol
