Rain or Shine


I swear it was raining the morning I wore this outfit. I waited all week for the rain to wear my boots and then of course, the sun would come out and compromise a convincing rain boots post by the afternoon. I promise you I am not that girl — you know, the girl who wears her new Hunter Boots when it is just a measly 20% chance of rain and 100% chance of sunshine. I don’t wear my boots until it’s at least 30% chance of rain, at least.

    Love your new Hunters! I couldn't wait to wear mine when I got them and I swear it didn't rain for like 3 weeks! I find that even if it doesn't end up raining, they look so cute that it doesn't matter.

  30. I bought my rain boots two years ago, intending to use them all winter/spring as both rain boots and snow boots. Wouldn't you know…that year, it snowed maybe once…and didn't rain more than once or twice! It took me a whole year before I got to wear them on the regular!

    I guess that's how it goes. I really love your rain boots, too – the color is perfect for spring showers!
