Unlike many people, I actually look forward to a rainy day now and then. The reason is that I love to wear my Burberry trench and Hunter wellies. These two items of clothing were created to endure the most blustery of days and have stood the test of time against the elements. I figured these classics can withstand the rainy season in the Scottish Highlands then they would be durable for rainy days in California. I love the element of utility for these staples of my wardrobe. Because looking arriving well dressed is and prepared is half the battle of any occasion.
