Even though the rain in these parts has ended for now, bags to carry during bad weather are still on my mind. I usually avoid going out as much as I can in the rain (I have weather-sensitive hair), but sometimes it’s unavoidable, particularly for those that live in urban areas and can’t get everywhere from the climate-controlled comfort of their cars.
As far as finding a bag that’s pretty straightforward and water-friendly, I think that the Dooney & Bourke Nylon Erica Sac is a strong contender. The color is bright and cheery to add a pop of color on a grey, rainy day and the nylon material is likely to survive inclement conditions better than a similarly colored leather would. It’s not a breakthrough as far as design goes, but it’s functional and would save your bags from bad-weather ruin and everyone needs something like that in their closet. Buy through Nordstrom for $130.
