splurge or save umbrella

 

I have a love/hate relationship with outdoor umbrellas.  On one hand, they’re so darn expensive that I feel like if I’m going to shell out some cash, I’m going to get something great.  On the other hand, we lose about two umbrellas each year to the elements (which I oddly forget each spring).

We’ve already lost one this year, so as I consider my next purchase, I am still on the fence.  Buy low and don’t be upset when the wind takes it into the neighbor’s yard and bends it into a trillion pieces, or buy what looks good (which is inevitably always more).

What’s your take on the patio umbrella?  Buy high like this fabulous cabana style from Frontgate? Or low like this fun and funky chevron style from World Market?

I hope your Tuesday is sunny enough for an umbrella!
