ALL IN THE DETAILS: Somewhere Over the Rain Boots

The epitome of #goals, Coco Chanel, once said, “The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.” As a lover of color, I find it can sometimes be difficult to figure out how to infuse color into a look without overdoing it. A pop of color is the best way to brighten up a simple outfit (and your day), and this Fashionista’s pink wellies are doing just the trick! Whoever said rain boots were only for rainy days was seriously disturbed.

When you know you’ve got a day full of walking around campus, and your usual booties could use a much needed reprieve, rain boots make for a cute, comfortable and stylish option for strolling around campus. What I love most about this Fashionista’s ensemble is absolutely the taste of whimsy her colorful rain boots bring! I adore her accessories as well. The dash of color from her turquoise ring and her Lokai and Alex and Ani bracelets are fun aspects as well, and the scrunchy socks totally complete the look. She enhances these accessories with the simple addition of diamond studs and her Minnesota charm necklace as a nod to her hometown. Her light jean shirt, black tank and dark jeans are equally perfect for a day of classes or running errands, as they are for a day of hanging out with friends or going to see a movie. This outfit is a great go-to no matter what plans (or surprises) your day brings!

How To: Have you ever said out loud “I miss my rain boots?” If so, it might be time to break them out and style them up, regardless of whether or not they provide a practical use! If you’re choosing to rock the rain boots or any colorful shoe, make sure the rest of your outfit is simple so that the color is pops as opposed to overwhelms.
