Rain, Rain Please Stay.

The rain continues here in the Big Apple, and yours truly is without a slicker, umbrella, or wellies, natch.

I trolled the web for some chic options and was surprisingly pleased with what I found:

I like the Kelly Green color and retro preppy vibe of this Priorities Phoebe rain jacket. You can find it on sale at Shop Intuition.

I trekked out to the Target in Brooklyn this weekend to ogle the new Richard Chai collection and was disappointed to find most of the racks picked clean. I did find the dress in this pattern but I think I like the trench even better. Order it online before it sells out.

Part of me thinks that a short sleeved raincoat is as useful as flip flops in the snow but this Guess trench is so chic and wearable that I think I could overlook it in this case. Get it online here.

The "Bond Girl" trench from Yoana Baraschi is just that: sleek, suave, and sophisticated. Plus it totally feeds my rock star fantasy. Get it at Bluefly.

I was loving the green one, and then I saw the black one and switched allegiance.

That last one is chic as hell! My only worry is how it would have to be cared for. . . My days of "Wipe clean with damp rag" are over.

And there's always justification for short sleeved trenches. Always.
