When it rains…

boots, stiefel, rain

Rain at 15 degrees, perfect excuse for boots!

When I was a little girl, I used to imagine that whenever it rained, angels up in heaven cried. School ruined all that, and taught me about precipitation and the water cycle. Bummer!

Now that I’m a grown woman, I’ve grown a certain fondness for rain. Sure, it may mean frizzy hair and wet roads, but this angel on earth isn’t crying at all. When it rains, it simply means that I have a good reason to wear a pair of funky rain boots! More than fashion, though, there are some other important things to consider when picking out a pair of rain boots.

Choose the right size. While being drenched in the rain isn’t sexy, neither is walking around in ill-fitting boots. If you are buying online, be sure to have the measurements written down. Do think about calf size when buying mid-calf or knee-high boots. In this case, it’s still best to try out boots from a store. Find a pair which doesn’t feel hard on your feet.

Tread is everything. The last thing you’d want to get yourself into is an embarrassing and totally unsexy accident, so be sure your boots have enough traction to grip slippery surfaces.

Fashion knows no boundaries. Whatever the season, you can always make a statement. Just remember to have the proper mix of quality, fashion, and price when purchasing a pair of rain boots.

Sure, these rain boots are made for walking, but I’m not going to walk all over you…

    It’s always challenge on what to wear when it rains. As getting drenched by it can be really difficult.

    The last time I wear a pair of decent boots was when I was in my elementary years :) I use them regularly..but I do have boots when rainy season sets in.

  4. Now that it’s getting cold I’m starting to use my boots. I think I’d better stick with this old one and get my money’s worth. :P

  5. I mean “stick with this one” wahaha!

    I love boots and rain. I too use to watch it rain as a child and I use to think that the droplets that would hit the pavement looked like little dancers dancing.

    I love rain boots, because it means I can splash in the puddles just like i did when I was a kid!

    It is always difficult for me to find boots because my calf is very fat — I have an old pair that are falling apart but have not been able to find a new pair.

    Your post so inspired me that I have been looking for the perfect pair of boots ever since, and I found them – Hunter! They are the ONE thing on my Christmas list for my husband.
