When the forecast calls for rain, I always grab my trusty leopard print umbrella. Leopard has always been chic, but it seemed like it really exploded this year in terms of being on trend. It's one of the few animal prints that reads as timeless and elegant instead of "little girl" and "Jersey Shore". I have had this umbrella since back in my Seattle days, when I quickly learned that natives to the Pacific Northwest don't bother with umbrellas despite the rainfall. I didn't mind breaking mine out and being deemed a "dumb tourist" despite my three year residency!
