It's Raining, It's Pouring . . .

The torrential rains outside turn my thoughts to rainboots - or wellies, as we grew up calling them. When things are so dreary outside, it's so nice to have a bright pair to add some color to your day. But while I have found some fun ones (we stock Chookas in fantastic prints, and I especially covet the lilac Hunter wellies), I am still searching for that perfect rain coat/slicker. The traditional yellow is B-O-R-I-N-G, LLBean is ubiquitous, and those animal ones (you know, the ones that make one look like a ladybug or frog) are too juvenile. I have searched high and low for a fun raincoat but have NOT found one. What do you wear when it's raining?

I hope to use this space as a forum to share ideas/thoughts/comments/musings/issues facing 'tween girls and their parents on everything from fashion to parenting to health to academics. Be on the lookout for links to interesting articles, the latest trends, creative ideas, new artists and designers, etc. I look forward to hearing your feedback and hope that this sparks positive conversations in your family.
