I actually like rainy days. I really do. But sometimes those rainy days interfere with enjoying the lovely outdoors. Especially when you just want to go outside for a walk or enjoy the warmth of the sun. Those are the days when I just want to say “Rain, rain. Go away! Come again another day.”

This hat features a fun, easy and whimsical stranded umbrella and rain motif. I chose rainy colors: shades of blue that transition from dark to light on a background of pale gray.
