The rain has made an appearance and it doesn't look like it is going away any time soon. Now, although I do not allow this to stop me from venturing out the house, it has made me realise that the time has officially come for me to carry an umbrella in my handbag ALWAYS!
The question is - which umbrella should I invest in this year? I do believe an umbrella is as important as one's outfit and often when out and about, it is the accessory that gets noticed the most, so - one must choose wisely.
Here are my top five to help give some umbrella ella ella inspiration.
1. Work, rest or play, this fairisle umbrella is adorable.
