Striped Tee and Hunter Boots on Kendi Everyday

As I had mentioned before, our first days in Maine it were welcomed with rain and grey skies, but we welcomed the cool break from our Texas summers and didn’t think much of it. Then came the fog. Of course we didn’t know it was this foggy until we drove out to see a light house and realized we couldn’t actually see the lighthouse because of the super intense fog. Luckily I’ve got a talented photographer with me and he was determined that we were going to see it. And if you are patient enough, if you outlast the rain, the fog will begin to clear. I forgot to pack my rain jacket (similar here) so I picked this one up in town before heading out. I was thankful to have it because we were caught in a little bit of a downpour but soon after the fog cleared and there the lighthouse was.

This one, the Portland Head Light lighthouse, was a fun and easy one to go see if you do visit Portland. It’s a nice drive and even on a rainy day, it’s fun to visit and look out to the ocean.

And while I totally forgot a rain jacket, I did pack my rain boots thankfully. At least one part of my body was going to be waterproof. I’ve loved these hunter boots since I got them. I debated on red for a while — if it was too bold of a color, because let’s be honest — it’s a lot of boot and a lot of red. But turns out they are my favorite pair I own. Spring to winter, they actually work year round. Just add rain.

And maybe some stripes. Hunter boots always work with stripes.

  1. So vibrant, I love it! I almost got the same red boots but don’t have enough fashion sense, so I stuck with the navy. Just curious…do you have any recommendations for how to pack with the non-foldable ones? Did you use a carry on? I always try to pack light, so when I flew from Houston to Cali I wore them through the airport but it sucked because…well, sweat.

    1. I do use a carry-on for purses and my laptop, etc…and you guessed it! My hunters 🙂 They are heavy so for me it’s either carry on or if I packed lighter, then in my suitcase they will go. Do you use packing cubes? I started using them a few years ago and honestly — game changer. I can get so much more in my suitcase with them, hunters included. But on this trip — carry on!

      1. Ahh I’m so glad I asked, that’s a great idea! I always forget you can still bring a “personal item” with carry ons besides a purse, and I love that idea to pack more resourcefully. Thanks, Kendi!! I haven’t tried packing cubes but I’m definitely gonna check them out now because my packing skills suck!

  2. Love the boots! I just bought almost the same red pair but they are Hunter Huntress. I love them. As soon as I bought them the the monsoon rains stopped in Texas. I might have to wait till next spring to break them in!

  3. So glad you waited out the fog, and especially that you packed those wonderful Hunter boots!

  4. WOW Kendi I love your Outfit, your tall red Rubber Boots look gorgeous on your bare legs and I bet they turn a few heads when you wear them.

  5. I can’t believe you were in Portland! I’ve lived in Portland for 10 years now and think it’s the most wonderful place on Earth and Fort Williams is my favorite place to take my dog. I hope you enjoyed your trip!
