My strategy for dealing with rain has almost always been just to stay inside - it's simple, it's warm and it works. But the reality is, going out in the rain is sometimes unavoidable, especially when you live in the Pacific Northwest. Having a selection of umbrellas is key, but this year I've discovered how much a good wide-brimmed hat can help, too, particularly when it comes to saving your hairstyle. I've been wearing this Club Monaco hat a lot this season, and it proved to be particularly useful the day these photos were taken, when it started pouring rain, followed by snow, just as I was on my way out to meet a good friend for brunch. I wouldn't have missed that delicious croque monsieur for anything, but being close-to-dry, with my curls somewhat intact, when I got to the restaurant was a definite bonus.
