The Beauty of Rain Boots

hunter green wellies
It's probably a good thing I live in California because I've never been a big fan of the rain. One of the biggest reasons why is I hate getting my shoes wet and having to walk around all day in squishy socks with cold feet. But then I got a pair of wellies for my birthday and am slowly starting to change my mind. Once we went to the grocery store during a crazy storm, and even after walking through ankle-deep lakes in the parking lot, my feet stayed bone dry! (Poor Alan—his pants got soaked up to his knees). So, when a friend told me she was thinking about getting a pair for an upcoming trip, all I could say was, "Yes, do it!" They're so practical and cute! 

Do you own rain boots? What other life-changing items are in your closet?

Just got some grey ones for Christmas! So excited to try them out!

A resounding yes from Seattle! You'd be crazy not to own some here, or at least a really nice rain jacket. But people very rarely use umbrellas, they're kind of touristy, in my opinion. Then again, my mom did give me one over the holidays, which I use only when it's seriously pouring - I guess I'm breaking my rule!

I'm actually working on a post about this exact thing! I ordered two different pairs-- one Hunter and the other Chooka and neither worked for me :( I'm short (5'1") so the Hunter pair was too tall, and the Chookas were too wide/flabby around my calves. Must keep looking!

Ami, have you seen the shorter version by Hunter? They also look really cute!

Claire, that's so interesting about umbrellas. When I think about the times I've visited, though, you're right, I can't remember seeing anyone using one! Hoods seemed a lot more popular.

Denise, grey sounds really chic :)

I wouldn't be without my Wellingtons and I wear them a lot and not only when it rains, my boyfriend likes me to wear them when we meet, he says they are sexy.
