Hey Peeps, Monsoon is making me go crazy. I am not able to enjoy the rain as much I used to enjoy being a kid. But yes, the kid inside me is still alive and I am never going to let that child fade away.
My first ever monsoon essential
I am from a very small town, Darbhanga and did my schooling from its most famous school, the only CBSE and English medium school in town, Holy Cross School.
During monsoon, my school used to get flooded because one corner of the school lay next to a big pond. Being a kid I used to enjoy the additional holidays that were inevitable due to monsoon flooding.
At the same time, our parents used to get worried about our studies and exams. So, after a long consultation with the parents, the school Principal decided that the school will open as soon as the water level falls.
The school even allowed kids to wear plastic shoes during monsoon so that they don’t catch a cold due to wet socks. I know, it does not look good along with school a uniform but all of us have loved it in childhood.
Since then I always buy such waterproof footwear for the monsoon season. In fact, the now so famous Crocs is a glorified enhancement of that footwear of yore.
Always look stylish
Every season comes with a new beginning and we need to take a few measures accordingly. Should we compromise on our style and look? No, Right?
Monsoon comes with so many problems in spite being the favourite season of many. The first and foremost fear every girl faces is what to wear because we don’t want to get wet and show our bosoms.
So here are few tips I use to take measures without compromising on my style.
