It has been raining here in the PNW since the beginning of
time October, or so. Which means indoor projects are piling up all over the place since it's here that we'll be spending the next seven months, AND because and I don't want to look at my blue wall that shouldn't be blue, or the three different kinds of texture in my living room, or the sporadic missing baseboards throughout the house any longer. Wait, these are my problems, not yours. But the rain is a heavy subject for many of us, and it's the exact reason I wrote, '5 Ways to Embrace the Rain This Season'.
The rain is also what inspired today's topic: Wellies.
You know the weather has changed when you're excited to spend your Nordstrom gift card and then some on a pair of rubber boots. Not on a blouse, jewelry or on the MAC makeup that you would like to re-stock, but boots. Rubber boots. And I'm not talking about the kind of rubber boots like the $15 pair that you bought last spring at Walmart and wear into your chicken coop.
Those boots serve a different purpose--like walking in chicken poop.
I'm sure wellies have been around since before I was born, so I'm not sure why I never connected owning a pair and wearing them regularly while living in the Pacific Northwest. It's like simple math. Where it rains = wear wellies. You can wear them anywhere--grocery shopping, to the mailbox, to and from the kids' bus stop, while on an afternoon stroll through the neighborhood, Christmas shopping in the city, or to retrieve your dog from the neighbor's, after his 213th unscheduled play date with their dog, in the rain.
You can even wear them in the snow! Husband did you hear?!
*I just happen to love the Hunter version.
Have you been considering a pair of rubber boots? Here's a great review on the pros and cons of Hunters by Sunday Love xo Glad to know that I wont be complaining if/when I get my hands on said boots.
Are you lusting over a fall clothing item that you want to see in your closet?
If so, what is it?
Edit: I have been informed via A CUP OF JO that Hunter has recently released collapsible boots.
Now you wont have them taking up half your suitcase when you travel! Genius!
