Confession: I may be the only person in the world that doesn’t like rubber wellies. I honestly don’t understand why they’re so popular. They are cute but so (in my mind), impractical. The tall ones are such a pain in the butt to get off, the mid-height ones left an angry rubber welt in the middle of my shin where the rubber slapped against my skin (it was terrible – it actually scabbed over!), and the lowest ones make me look like I have clown feet.
I used to skip rain boots altogether until I got these from Sorel.
I actually got them a few years ago but realized I never put them on my blog until now. Prior to getting these I would actually just wear my snow boots (if it was cold) or a pair of faux leather ballet flats (if it was warm). Terrible, and the latter option made for some wet feet. These are the best though. The army green color goes with everything, the wedge heel gives you a bit of height, and they are super, super comfortable. They’re on sale right now too!
I also really love my new rain coat.
When I went down to speak at TBSCon in Atlanta, the Joules team gifted it to me and it’s the perfect classic rain coat. It has a fun striped lining and the fit is perfect. The bright yellow makes me a little nostalgic. I had one just like it when I was a kid! If yellow isn’t your thing (it isn’t for everyone!) I also love the navy blue.
Obviously it wasn’t actually raining when we took these photos but if it were I would most definitely leave the Chanel bag home!!!!
