Confession: I'm one of the few people that live in Arizona that I know that already owns rain boots, from spending a very rainy semester at college in Texas, but if I were to buy rain boots again, I'd love to have Hunter boots. Yes, they are really expensive, but if I lived somewhere where I had to wear rain boots often, I think I'd splurge for this pair from Bloomindale's, $125. They apparently are very comfortable, and last forever, and I adore the red- it would be so cheery to look down at your feet and see these cuties!
If you watched Gossip Girl this week, you probably know where my inspiration for this next item comes from. During the episode, Serena and Blair had these perfect, 70s style, clear bubble umbrellas. I tracked down this version, and for only $15, it will keep you totally dry and looking fun!
Obviously, the perfect rain ensemble would be worthless without a great raincoat (let's be honest: an umbrella alone doesn't keep out all the water). I found this version, $85, at American Apparel. I think it is a great alternative to a trench coat, and would be perfect for casual weekend outings. It comes in a variety of colors- I'd probably go for the mocha color, but this kelly green is fun, too!
So, what do you wear on rainy days?
