Whenever it rains, my mother loves to remind me that when I was in middle school, I refused to carry an umbrella. Apparently, this wasn’t the “cool” thing to do, so I (and all of my friends) would arrive everywhere soaking wet!
Today I am (a little) smarter and have a whole selection – everything from tiny umbrellas that fold up and fit in my smallest bag, to full sized, colorful golf ones so large that they could shelter half the state of Delaware!
Today’s top picks are not only practical, they are super stylish as well. An unusual umbrella is an easy and inexpensive way to stand out in a sea of boring black – and showcase your unique, personal style!
And now the public apology – Mom, you were right!
