Rain, rain, go away! Wait – if I had these boots, I would cherish the rain – and that’s saying something. (I.hate.rain.) I’ve been dying to have a pair of rain boots for forever, but haven’t bought any yet. Why? Because I’m fearful of coming across too kitschy, too posed – too playful? I don’t want to ruin my outfit with a pair of hideous wellies that scream, “look at me!” and take away from everything else I’m wearing in my wardrobe.
So, let me introduce you to Dirty Laundry‘s (yes, a relative of one of my fav brands, Chinese Laundry!) “Roadhouse” rain boots ($49) – simple and chic. Ah, shower me with style! These come in both black and red (for the daring), and I love how the silver buckle adjusts at the top of the shaft (for those with larger calfs like moi!). The boots are non-skid and padded – so you might actually wear them for a full day of shopping – perfect for taking a (small!) break from those heels. I would wear these with skinny jeans and a long, plaid button down.
