It’s cold, it’s wet and all you want to do is sleep the day away. You know what I’m talking about — rain. Unfortunately, the world doesn’t stop when water falls from the sky so we have to suck it up and deal with it. This week’s Fashionista took Columbus by storm as she strut her stuff in a cozy knit paired with leggings and rain boots. Living proof that it is in fact possible to look dashing in a downpour.
Although I’m not particularly fond of thunderstorms, I can’t deny that I get excited every time I get to whip out my rain boots. Not to mention the fact that you can totally jump in those puddles that your five year old self has been begging you to splash around in! Let’s be honest here, we’ve all done it. As long as you’ve got your rain boots it doesn’t matter what Mother Nature has in store — you’ll be weather ready.
This week’s featured Fashionista kept it casual, yet cute, rocking a statement necklace accenting her boot socks and arm candy galore. Her outfit is perfect for both fashion and function — take notes ladies and gentlemen. The great thing about rain boots is that they’re so easy to wear! With a neutral color like this Fashionista, your possibilities are endless and anything is possible — except maybe suede. Lately it seems everyone and their mother owns a pair of Hunter rain boots, myself included. Although they are a bit of an investment they are incredibly comfortable, durable and of course, cute!
However, if Hunters aren’t your cup of tea there are also great, more affordable rain boots by Sperry Top-Siders! Trust me, owning a pair of these babies will make your rainy days a whole lot sunnier, especially if you get yellow. So remember, next time it rains take a cue from this Fashionista and use it to your advantage!
