An outfit for: When it rains in Spain...

It's only three days until my holiday now, so I'm spending the day printing off my accommodation voucher, photocopying important documents, and making a list of what to take. My Dad checked the weather forecast for the Costa Del Sol earlier, and apparently there may be a thunderstorm on Saturday!
I find thunderstorms quite exciting, but the rain can be annoying abroad, when you've got your cute sandals and a light dress on! So I thought I would go prepared, and figure out now what I could wear if bad weather strikes.

I was planning on going to Fuengirola Zoo on the Saturday, as I think it is only open at the weekends out of season. When I heard it was going to rain I thought 'oh no! Now we can't go to the Zoo!' but then I thought, well, it will still be warm, I'll just have to take my brolly!
So I came up with this outfit. Flip flops are comfortable, and are designed for water, so won't be wet all day after the rain has gone. A little skirt and vest might not keep me dry, but as it will still be warm they will keep me cool. Also, skin dries quicker than material, so, again, I won't be swamped in wet cloth once the rain has gone. I'll put my little cardigan in my nautical bag, so when it starts raining I'll have some sort of cover.
Last but not least- my trusty brolly. Hopefully I won't need it for too long!
