While we have been experiencing an unusually warm March here in Boston, rainy spring can’t be held off forever.
Rainboots, or “wellies”, are one of my favorite types of footwear.
I like to wear them while doing yard work.
Sometimes I wear them when I shovel (with wool socks!). I like them better than snow boots because they are less bulky. However, they don’t have much traction against ice.
I started wearing them to prevent the dreaded “wet pant ankles” epidemic.
I love rubber boots because they come in all sorts of fun colors (for example: I own a bright red pair and another pair that makes it looks like I have giant rolls of Lifesaver candies on my feet).
Rainboots are very durable. I’ve had my striped pair (from Filene’s Basement) for 7 years! I think a new pair will be in order soon.
Maybe I’ll pick up a new floral print:
Or these blue polka dot cutie booties:
There’s no better way to brighten up a dreary day than a classic pair of yellow galoshes.
Maybe someday I’ll win the lottery and will splurge on fancy rainboots like these classic Hunters:
These Sperry rainboots look nice and sturdy! And particularly warm.
We shall see!
Happy Monday and Happy Spring!
