Awaiting April Showers

I'm not one of those people that can't get out of a car or leave a building during a drizzle without an umbrella. It may come as a surprise to some - but I will not melt. Thankyouverymuch.

Frankly, I think they are more of a pain to manage while teetering on my 3.5 inch heels and schlepping some massive purse, laptop, bottled water and cell attached to ear.

Gang....Times - they are a changin'.

Maybe my obstinacy to umbrella usage stems from the fact that most are just ugly. Leave it to the retail geniuses at Tar-jay to make me believe that good design and practicality can exist for under $20.

Hayden-Harnett for Target Umbrella

It's on sale for $16.09...slightly more than you should be paying for an umbrella with a plastic handle - but oh, how chic.

Unfortunately, it does not match my wellies.

Yours in preparedness for April showers,

Mrs. News Readin'

Darling! As it happens, I am in need of an umbrella. Will check it out on my next (daily) regular Target trip.

You are so funny...would you believe we do not even know where any umbrellas might be, other than the Spousal Unit's golf umbrellas?

Grins & Giggles for the rest of your weekend,

That umbrella looks like you designed it! So chic!
