Which is best for those rainy Florida days - coat or umbrella?


rain-or-sunshine-coat.jpegThere I was, first day of the new job, with my new-job-outfit on, and my new-job pen and notebook out, and what should happen?

The skies open up. 

Total fail. 

Luckily it was only a light sprinkle, but still enough rain to make me wish I'd remembered to grab an umbrella on my way out. 

OR, to have a swanky yellow rain coat like this. 

Isn't she gorgeous? And, unfortunately, way out of my budget. ModCloth is selling it (dubbed the "Rain or Shine Coat") for $189.99 on its website. Yikes. 

But maybe there are some similar alternatives out there?

What do you guys think? Do you find yourself rocking a raincoat in the Florida heat, or just stick to unbrellas?

ModCloth says this baby is 100 percent cotton and only ratea a 2 out 5 on the "warmth scale," so maybe it'd be light enough.

And if you do go the raincoat route, where's the best place to fine affordable ones? If you have any tips, leave a message in the comments!
