I'd really like to start using those rain bonnets that are stereotypically reserved for old ladies.
In all seriousness - think of the practicality! Here in Washington, who even uses an umbrella anymore? They can be bulky, something extra to hold, and awkward. Yet I would still like to have a way that I can keep my hair dry, especially on the days that I actually try to make my hair look good. I have one problem... my sweet husband would never want me to wear one of these!!! So out of respect him, I am going to resist this temptation with
Actually, in writing this post I found some "trendy" rain bonnets - Here is a an etsy store that sells bonnets made out of umbrella fabric. And here is one being sold on a European website (I really have my eye on that one!).
Maybe he would go for one of those?
I like the classic plastic... ;)ReplyDelete
I could probably be convinced to wear that polkadot one.ReplyDelete
Those trendy ones are way cute. :)ReplyDelete
So cute! Tell Andrew that this is your other option: http://www.amazon.com/Funny-Umbrella-Fishing-Costume-Party/dp/B001H3QJ6SReplyDelete
It was great to see you last night - John is getting so big!
I think they are so cute, and definitely practical for WA weather. And if you're a mommy and you take the time to make your hair pretty, going out in the rain isn't exactly fun...ReplyDelete
oooo...I so want one now! You have convinced me. :) Let's all band togetherReplyDelete
I kinda like the blue one. Umbrellas are so annoying.ReplyDelete
I don't like those visor rain hats much at all but I have worn the pleated 'concertina' type in the rain ever since I was about three and Mum had to tie the ties for me. Now I'm early 50s. With a proper nylon raincoat they're essential in sports/concert crowds when it's wet, and so much better than those awful cheap plastic monstrosities they sell at those kind of places. I even have them on under the umbrella sometimes for that moment between putting the brolly down and getting into the car. Even my teenage daughter carries one for emergencies and has worn it at least twice recently.ReplyDelete

When I was working with predominantly Puerto Rican women (whose fashion sense I love, because there are no implied apologies for looking beautifully feminine), they would wrap their heads in scarves if it was raining to protect their hair. I always thought it looked kind of pretty and feminine.
So my thought is: either use a clear one and wrap a scarf over it, or invest in a cute one (I'm partial to the polka dots, personally!). It's just like wearing the hood of a raincoat, only more stylish. :)
I love the polka dot one! I might wear that!ReplyDelete
