Rain boots

Monday was a nice holiday. I got to lounge around and read magazines, Josh got to stay up until the wee hours of the morning playing video games, and we went out for a late lunch that involved gigantic bowls of macaroni and cheese. It's been raining like crazy here, so I busted out my rain boots for our trip out to lunch. I think I've only worn these once on the blog (here, back in my third post ever!), but I actually wear them every time it rains. (Which is a lot. This is Oregon, after all.) Even though they were crazy expensive, I feel that the cost was justified by the quality. The pair of rain boots I had before these cost $30, and started falling apart after a few weeks. These cost $125, but I've had them for a year and a half, have probably worn them close to a hundred times, and they're still in great condition. In case you didn't know, Hunter boots have been around since 1856, and they're the boots that were mass-produced for the British Army in World Wars I and II - so they have definitely passed the test of time and hardship.

Pink swan sweater: Urban Outfitters
Floral blouse: thrifted from Village Merchants
Jeans: Levi's from Urban Outfitters
Gray rain boots: Hunter from Nordstrom
Gray hat: Fred Meyer

  1. this floral blouse is a great piece and I like how the necklace falls between the swans.

    1. My husband said it looked like the swans were both pecking at the necklace trying to eat it :)

  2. well if you are going to wear a rain boot, it might as well be a hunter.
    i'd like to get a pair in red, but most of the time when it rains i just get my feet wet rather than putting on boots.
    Chic on the Cheap
