Next Tuesday is a BIG day! It's not only Election Day (woohoo!), it's also the day we're taking our engagement photos. Sadly, according to Weather.com, it's also likely to be a rain day in Cambridge, Massachusetts:
Oh well. Mr. HC and I wanted photos that captured our beloved New England, and I guess we're getting exactly what we wished for, capricious weather and all! No way are we going to let a little precipitation spoil our fun. And maybe if we're lucky, we'll even catch a rainbow.
Plus I love rain gear. Look at how adorable this couple looks smooching under their umbrella:
And how fly are these rainboots?

So being a long-time Boston resident, I am already well equipped with a pair of black Hunter boots (classic and chic) and a pair of polka-dotted Tamara Henriques wellingtons.
Now, what I need is a sassy umbrella, like this one:
Except it's $96 (!!!) and out of my price range. How about this darling Marimekko umbrella, which is a splurge at $40:
But I'm also digging the simple chic of this $65 umbrella, which is so little black dress:
Alright, who am I kidding? I'm not spending $65 on an umbrella that I'm promptly going to lose (because you know umbrellas run away -- from me anyway). I think I'm going with this $27.95 number, which is simple navy on the outside and blue skies and white clouds on the inside:
Did it rain on your engagement photo or wedding day? Any tips on how to stay dry and happy when it's wet and coooold?
