Thanks to Joules USA for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions in the post are my own.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain, with the right gear, of course… like only the cutest and comfiest rain jackets and rain boots from Joules to keep you dry, warm, and cozy while you are at it! Joules is one of Britain’s best-loved lifestyle brands, making a splash since 1989. They offer a wide range of high-quality, stylish, timeless, and versatile choices when it comes to clothing and rain gear for the entire family (women, men, and kids alike). I absolutely love their bright and vibrant colors and fun patterns.
P.S: It rains so so often in Seattle this time of the year but the one day we planned to take photos wearing our rain gear it decides not to rain… LOL, the irony!

Ever since Aarush came into our lives, one of my biggest learning’s has been, well, learning from him (meaning, the whole ‘things to learn from your kids’ bit). It’s true, our kids are indeed our greatest teachers as they teach us the most valuable life lessons, big and small, as long as we are willing to observe, listen, and learn.
One such huge lesson that I have learned from my kiddo is simply to have fun, no matter the place, no matter the constraints, and no matter the circumstances (rain or shine). Just let go of all your inhibitions, apprehensions, feelings of discomfort, and simply.have.fun!
Speaking of unfavorable situations and rain, it rains for 8 out of 12 months in Seattle, and Vinay and I are not huge fans of the rain. Sure, we do love to get wet occasionally when it’s raining for a just a little bit but going about our lives like its just another day like most true Pacific North Westerners do just isn’t our thing. And it’s been 3+ years since we moved to this rainy Seattle.
But thanks to our little guy we are slowly warming up to the idea of not letting rain dictate how we do life! Aarush wants to be out and about, rain or shine, there’s nothing stopping him; he doesn’t care how gloomy the day is, or how crappy it looks outside. He doesn’t let the outside world dictate how his day goes, he, and only he does! And that is a huge takeaway for me as his mom, in more ways than one.
Yoga, all day, every day, anywhere!!!
Model in the making or showing off the details of the rain jacket!? You decide!
And I have come to realize that a good raingear makes all the difference to ensure that you have the most amount of fun when you are outside in the rain without feeling miserable, thank you Joules!
My family has been crushing over these latest Joules Right as Rain finds… because they are 1) high-quality, super-stylish and full of bright colors and fun patterns 2) waterproof, breathable and with taped seams 3) can be buttoned + zipped and are well-structured 4) warm, cozy, and the soft jersey lining make them the perfect choice to layer during those long rainy/winter days.
So we are bundling up in our new Joules Right As Rain outfits and making a rainy day bucket list for us all to make the most of the many rainy days here in Seattle (or for anywhere it rains, just for a day, or 100).
- Playing in the puddle – hop, skip, jump and splash
- Make paper boats (or use leaves) and row them gently down the stream (used to be my favorite thing to do when I was a kid)
- Create music – bring household objects outside to hear the various sounds/music that raindrops make against different surfaces
- Make rainbow – bring sidewalk chalk, food color or washable markers and create artwork in the rain.
- Catch raindrops with tongue or other toys.
- Go for a walk/run by the lake and listen to the ducks go quack quack quack
- Build mud castles or make mud pies and decorate them
Sometimes you just have to post a blurry pic…
… or two 😉
So what better way than to brighten up a gloomy day than with such bold and fashionable rain gear as you step outside to check things off of your rainy day bucket list! Gimme all the stripes, florals, and colorful patterns, please. Joules ‘Right As Rain’ gear is also perfect to carry on our many travel adventures…
