stripes + rain boots

The forecast for today promised to be rainy (and maybe even freezing rain or snow) so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to wear my new rain boots to work. Too bad it only rained a tiny bit, and by the time I left the office, it had already stopped. So even though I didn’t get a chance to test the boots’ waterproof properties in action, I had fun wearing my new polka dot rain boots!

By the way, the story about rain boots is this: I had a pair from wal-mart that I bought when I was in college (many moons ago). They sat in my closet, unworn, for many years. Mostly they were uncomfortbale but also because a chance hadn’t arose where I needed to wear them, so off to the donation pile they went. Fast forward to this winter, where it’s been colder, snowier, and wetter than I can remember, and I wished I hadn’t donated my old boots.

I decided I wanted a nice pair of rain boots, something affordable yet still made in the USA. I’m glad I found the brand Sloggers (purchased from Amazon) – they come in a variety of colors and are American made. I’ve only worn them once (sized up a size per the reviews and they’re a tiny bit loose but better than tight and uncomfortable like the old ones) but they seem very comfortable.

Anyway, that’s it about the rain boots – hope you all had a great tuesday:)
