April showers, yes that's most definitely a term that we've become accustomed too and used to this month.
Whilst we may be heading towards May, hopefully a more bright one, that still doesn't mean that we can't invest in some practical pieces that will help to save our hair, clothes and dignity in the rain.
This super cute Cath Kidson rain coat will make sure that you're kept dry during a downpour.
The pretty flower print keeps the look super girlie too.
Keep hold of this throughout the summer and you'll be sure to use it again, especially if you're making an appearance at a festival.
Available from John Lewis, £35.
Who doesn't want to revisit their youth and splash through puddles?
Buy these Hunter wellies and you'll be able to do it as much to your hearts content, without ending up with freezing toes and high chances of a cold.
Available from Office, £85.
Out of all of the umbrellas I have lost, abandoned and broken over the years, none has ever been more faithful as a dome-shaped one.
These can withstand some of the harsher winds and the shape means that you can cover quite a bit of the top half of your body.
If you don't have one of these, I suggest picking one up now.
Once you have one, you'll never go back to a cheap one that may last a couple of outings.
Available from John Lewis, £16.
Waterproof mascara is also a must have in this weather.
No one wants to turn up at work like you've been crying on your way in, panda eyes are never a good look.
Available from Superdrug, £9.99.
And for the weekend, a onesie.
Stay in and avoid the miserable weather, curl up on the sofa and listen to the rain on the window. Bliss.
Available from John Lewis, £98.
