Daily inspiration and advice for the ambitious savvy young professional

Intern Essentials: The Umbrella

This is a guest blog from Kellie, one of the Intern Queen&s very own interns!

As interns, it is essential that we be prepared for any situation. We must be ready to handle shortened deadlines, last minute meetings and, of course -- a little rain every now and then.

When it rains, it pours; and when it pours, interns take cover.

We cannot control the weather, but that doesn&t mean the weather can control us. Interns have things to do, places to go and people to see. A little rain cannot stop an intern!

Umbrellas have to be sturdy enough to keep us dry, small enough to stay hidden when not needed and cute enough to keep us feeling confident when the weather gets gloomy. Umbrellas definitely have a lot to live up to in intern world.

So what are the best umbrellas out there? Take a look at some of these finds!

1. Bloomingdale&s Little Brown Umbrella

I have a feeling this will fit perfectly in Bloomingdale&s Little Brown Bag.

2. Urban Outfitters& Clear Bubble Umbrella

Maybe it&s not so bad to be a bubble boy (or girl).

3. Forever 21&s Victoria Twist Umbrella

At $5.80, there is no reason to not buy this . . . in every color! We even have a Forever21 coupon code! Because who doesn&t love to save?

And now for my personal choice of rain protection:

4. totes& Folding Fashion Umbrella

These come in tons of different colors and prints, so there is guaranteed to be one that fits your personal style. Best of all, they fold up perfectly to fit in a nice carrying pouch and then conveniently in your purse!
