My Monsoon Essentials Wish List..!!!

It's Raining..Hallelujah..!!!

Actually it's raining cats and dogs in Mumbai.
Also this is proof that GOD himself reads So-Saree's blog posts.

Don't believe me..???
Please do..!
Or else what could possibly explain the fact that it starts pouring minutes after I publish my last post, cribbing about the hot and sweltering weather in Mumbai...!!
You see..God seems to like me too much and does follow my posts religiously..!!!;)

Alright....Alright..No More Kidding..!!!
Since the Rain God has finally showed some mercy on us, why not please him and thank him for the lovely showers.
And what better way than to meet and embrace him in style.

My Monsoon Essentials Wish List...
I really want each one of them...I know I am greedy..but I am sure once you scroll down you wouldn't blame me a bit.

  • Gum Boots Vs Crocs/Rainy Sandals:
    I hated Gum Boots as a child and my mom forced me to wear them. I so envied my sister in her rainy sandals..they seemed so cool that time. Mom said I could only wear them once I was old enough to take good care of myself. But now, I want to go back to the Gum Boots. I really do. I hate walking in the murky waters and puddles especially if I am on my way to work, or some meet.
    Gum boots are definitely more functional ..but as far as the cuteness quotient of Crocs is concerned..not many can beat them. Tell me which one do you like?


  • Rain Coats Vs Umbrellas:
    Same story again..I was forced to wear a raincoat to school, while my sister carried colorful umbrellas in the rain. I whined, cried, complained..but then..I did not know ..when I would be be big enough to take care of myself. [And now I whine and complain coz I am a grown up and have to take care of everything myself..! :( ]
    Fast Forward to today..I own raincoats as well as umbrellas..n though I find raincoats more functional and easy to carry, I limit them only to my shopping trips and casual strolls. While Umbrellas constitute a part of my work wear or formal wear wardrobe.

  • Shorts:
    Though Monsoons are always welcome in Mumbai, the one thing that I hate most about them, is when the the lower hem of your clothes gets wet, and you can't get rid of them until you get home. That's why I feel shorts are much better and way too functional for the rainy season. So what better time to flaunt those toned legs than monsoons. Get out in the rains in your fav shorts to escape the wet and soggy nightmares.

  • Three Fourths/Capris:
For the more conservative types or for those who are plain lazy to wax their legs during monsoons, three- fourths are a safe bet.
Take a look at the lovelies..I want them all.
  • Sarees:
    And if you are thinking about how to wear your sarees during monsoons, take a look below and see for yourself.

Tada..The Monsoon Saree..what do you guys say..???

Happy Monsoons Everyone..!

  6. Hahahaha .. that last pic cracked me up! My mom-in-law would faint if I wore that. But I do love it and wish i could wear it :D

    I loved the sunflower umbrella! And havent worn rain coats in like 20 years! Given the state of Mumbai rains, nothing can help you - raincoats or umbrellas :)


    1. Ha..i think evn i wud faint if i saw u in that saree..nevertheless u wud look hot.
      Raincoats r still better than umbrellas for mumbai i feel.

  7. LOL, the last picture is my kinda gal!! ;-)
    BTW, I just ordered rainboots and love wearing them, even if it is just cloudy:-) It has been raining in East Coast regularly for couple of weeks and I also hate walking in puddles with no protection! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
