As a born and raised Florida gal, I've experienced more than my fair share of summer rains. Though it was a total bummer for a planned beach day to get rained out when I was a kid, as an adult, there's something I love about a hot summer rainfall. The aroma of fresh rain on the pavement, the way the weather cools down afterwards, and, of course, rocking trendy rain gear are all wonderful parts of summer rain. When I go home to visit this summer, I'll definitely take more than a few pics sloshing around, snapping quality #content for the 'Gram, and using captions for umbrella pics that will make a splash on my feed.
Every Florida girl who loves to "do it for the 'Gram" probably has a matching raincoat and umbrella set sitting somewhere in her closet. (If you live in a city that also gets a lot of rain, you probably do, too.) Even though you probably hated having to throw on a plastic raincoat when you were younger, now, you know that the bright yellow, rainbow-patterned, or even transparent raincoats make for adorable Instagram pics.
So instead of sitting inside with a book and cup of tea on your next rainy day (Don't get me wrong, I love those kinds of cozy days, too!), go outside and have a little photo shoot. You'll get some fabulous content, and dancing in the rain is always a good idea.
