Update Your Umbrella

The morning draws nearer.

You awake to hear the pattering sound of rain.

Through the mist and fog, you begin to see things less clearer.

Isn’t a heavy downpour a pain?

Isn’t Autumn a beautiful season, the colours, the harvest, the animals, BBC’s Autumnwatch is once again back on our screens.

But, what is not a pleasant affair is to awaken in the morning and discover the rain lashing against the window pains, puddles galore, and the prospect of having the trek through the rain to work, school or University having to arrive looking like you had a fling at diving in your local swimming pool wearing your full outfit.


The solution to this, is of course, an umbrella. But, as I’m sure many of you know this fashion foe-par, when shopping for that rudimentary accessory you will opt for the safe option. The black or navy blue because, and I quote ‘it’s only an umbrella and black goes with everything.’

Am I right?

Well then, i think i have the perfect answer to your solution. Why not update your wardrobe and brighten up any day with an umbrella. When justifying buying a new one all you need do is remember this, Through the history of battles shields have served a main purpose, to safeguard those who wield them. But, that does not mean to say that the soldiers of the past went into what could have been their last battle wielding a bare piece of wood.

Not that I draw comparison between a fight to the death and a walk in the rain! But, you catch my meaning I hope. So, for todays instalment I have selected a number of glamorous umbrellas, all practical and portable that I hope will give you some ideas on how to Update Your Umbrella!
