I'll Cover You

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?

Want to split the cost of the Bella umbrella? It's perfect for my second-line parade but I can't justify the cost!

you know, I saw some rather cute umbrellas at GAP recently (I know, its the GAP, but they were cute!)

I don't think I'd be able to really get in the e-pic mood on Election Day, I'm always a little preoccupied (that, and I'd probably end with a bunch of 'I voted' type pics...)
