Rainy Day Fashion Tips

Rainy Day Fashion Tips

When you live in Taiwan, the best transportation is riding a scooter. But the only annoying part is when there is a downpour, it would suck big time. I was told last night that the weather would suck today. But I didn’t think it was going to be that bad until I woke up this morning to raindrops. I mean, I can easily manage to this heavy drizzle since it wasn’t a real rain. All I needed to do was to put on some rain-boots, raincoats and some water proof pants then I’m good to go. Only a minute after I started my scooter it started pouring badly. I was thinking of either turning back, or keep on going (thinking that the rain might stop at some point). So, I decided to keep on going. I didn’t want to miss work again, since I called-in sick last week.

A crack of thunder and a bolt of lightning strike just above me, and the rain came down like a waterfall. My make-up was smudged by the heavy rain, and the mud splattered up above my knees. I knew I had to find a place to stop, because the wind almost blew me away. I carefully stopped at a gas station; I could barely see what’s in front of me. I knew then I had to turn back, but with this rain it seemed impossible.

I took out my phone from my scooter trunk to call my students to cancel today’s lesson. As I waited for the rain to stop, I realized I wasn’t even wearing my rain boots. My precious black flats were soaked up from the rain and dirt. Looking through my scooter’s mirror, my eyeliner and mascara were dripping down my face. I felt so annoyed, and just wanted to be in the shower.  Finally, the rain was slowing down a bit, I started riding back home. It was already flooding which makes it even harder for me to drive.

I am still alive, I made him home safe (Thank Buddha!) I quickly got into the hot shower to freshen up again. Thinking that lightening never strikes twice- It will all be fine. The rain was still pouring, but at noon I have a class to attend. Which means:

1. Water-proof makeup

A water proof eyeliner and mascara will prevent from smudging.
I use:

  • water-proof Maybelline mascara
  • Bobbi Brown eye-liner

I will leave the eye-shadow behind for a rainy day. Eyeliner and mascara will do!

2. Shorts and Flip-flops or Rain Boots)

It was very stupid of me wearing jeans today. It was soaked and very uncomfortable to wear it on a rainy day. I think shorts and flip-flops are perfect. But then, flip-flops are actually bad for your feet on a day like this. If you don’t wear rain boots you’re going to end up with soaked legs and feet all day. And nobody wants that. Due to my laziness, I will stick to flip flops for now!

3. Umbrella

Very important to own an umbrella! I have a pink one, and I love it. I’ve seen some people with cute designs of umbrella. I’ll consider of getting that one day.

Any nice ones?

4. Walk

I left my scooter behind and walked to school (which wasn’t too far away). I was safe and didn’t get too wet!

Tressa and her flip-flops, she was afraid to get her nice shoes wet. She also need to get a new pair of rain boots! Arthur says he will stick to his sneakers since flip-flops will look to sloppy for school.
