Rainy Day Necessities
Posted on 20 July 2018
It's the Florida rainy season. That means we usually have showers in the afternoons. Anthony's Ladies Apparel has the cutest rain gear so that you will be prepared for those rainy situations. Check out our rainy day necessities!
Stylish Ponchos for Your Next Rainy Day by Rain Capers
The Leopard Hooded Rain Caper is my favorite because of its leopard-print pattern. No need to fear the afternoon rain showers any longer. This rain caper is light and perfectly packable for daily errands, travel, or events. It also features a pouch for packability and a hood.
Try the Houndstooth Hooded Rain Caper for another alternative, fun pattern. This one also has a hood and a pouch to pack it in. It's also easy to popover or wrap around you to keep you dry. Another perk? This rain caper is easily packable and fits conveniently in a small pouch that takes up little space in your handbag.
For a more neutral look, you can try the Solid Hooded Rain Caper. It's very chic with a classic hood and cape silhouette. You can just slip this rain poncho over your shoulders and be ready to head out the door!
Really Cute Rain Jackets for the Season
The Toggle Front Rain Jacket in taupe by Neyelle, is extremely adorable. This style of rain jacket has been extremely popular with our customers! It does come in other colors, but you have to be fast if you want one. They are selling out quickly this rainy season. This jacket is great because it is water-repellent, has pockets and a hood, and has adorable polka dots to accent!
Another customer favorite is the Lightweight Crinkle Jacket in white, by Neyelle. This jacket is also lightweight and water resistant, so it is ideal to have on hand for the Florida afternoon showers or just a breezy day. The jacket also has the flexibility of a removable hood and an adjustable hemline!
These ponchos and jackets will help you when it comes to being stuck in an unexpected rain shower. Stop in or scroll online and see the rest of the collections!
Summer Recipe for a Rainy Day
This recipe for Parmesan Chicken and Kale Sauté from Kitchn is a healthy, easy choice for when you just do not want to treck through the rain! Pair it with some sparkling water or a nice, white wine and enjoy alone or with dinner guests!
Parmesan Chicken and Kale Sauté
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
-Freshly ground black pepper
-1 medium yellow onion, diced
-3 cloves garlic, minced
-Pinch red pepper flakes
-1 large bunch flat-leaf kale (about 12 ounces), stems removed and leaves coarsely chopped
-1/2 cup dry white wine
-1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
-1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
-Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm.
Add the onion, garlic, and pepper flakes to the skillet. Sauté until the onions are starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in the kale, wine, and a pinch of salt. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the kale is just tender.
Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Add the Parmesan and lemon juice and stir to combine. Taste and season with more salt and pepper as needed.
