The rainy season is definitely upon us, here in the Philippines. While there are still days when it’s hot and sunny, the late afternoons to evenings are usually either gloomy, or wet – with the rains ranging from a drizzle to torrential rain.
With that, whats a girl to do? In this post I talk about my Top 5 Must Haves for the Rainy Season. These will help you get through the wet season.
Okay, this one’s a no brainer. Always have an umbrella on hand and ready for the rain. Even if it doesn’t look like it’s going to rain, better to be safe than sorry. Unless you’d rather run the risk of being stranded somewhere because it’s raining hard. Besides, an umbrella is great to have with you even if it’s a sunny day! You can choose to grab a fold-able umbrella that you can easily take anywhere with you for convenience, or just a regular umbrella which is sturdier and usually bigger for more protection from the rain.
In connection with number 3, if in case you don’t want to bring anything extra for your feet but want to wear shoes that are good for the rain, I suggest investing in a nice pair of good leather ankle boots (preferably flat), or for a more affordable option – rubber sandals. Both boots and sandals would also be able to withstand the water and dirt without getting damaged, and are easy to clean. Obviously the boots would also keep your feet nice and dry while walking, which is a big plus – but with sandals you will be able to easily clean and dry your feet, then slip back into your shoes like nothing happened. Both are great pairs of shoes to have: easy to walk in, fashionable and also work in wet and dry weather!
(I personally bought my flat ankle boots from H&M and my rubber sandals from SM Department Store)
These are just some of the things that most important for the rainy season. What else can you not live without during this time of year? Let me know in the comments below! Thank you for reading!
