Rain Drops Keep Fallin' on My Head...

...but that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red... because there are more cute rain boot options out there than ever before! AZ isn't known for getting a lot of rain (or having water in any form in general) so I get a little excited when it rains. I have shoes that work well in rain, but no official rain boots like the ones you people with your "seasons" have, so I decided to look for some options. My favorites are simple and pretty classic:
I love the classic style and the mix and match possibilities when paired with the Hunter socks that tuck inside/fold over the top of the boot. The graphite color is a classic neutral that would go with leggings, jeans, etc, but is a little more unexpected than basic black.

The classic Hunter boot gets a lil splash of chic with the slight wedge and equestrian-inspired detail at the ankle. The usual awkward chunkiness of rain boots is charming, but it would be nice to have something a little more sleek and refined sometimes...which makes this perfect!
How fun is this one?! The studs definitely up the ante and add a little bit of a rocker-edge to this darkest-of-green boot. This would be a great choice for a gal who thinks the plain boots are boring but doesn't want to be wearing giant plaid Burberry galoshes around town ;)

I am a big fan of the JCampbell camp and these boots are a great example of why I am an admirer. Super sleek and a tad futuristic, these boots would make your outfit instead of being a dowdy, solely functional accessory.

All of you out there in the rain, what are you wearing on your feet while splishing and splashing about? And are what are the most important things to consider when buying a rain boot?


  1. I have the classic dark green Hunters and I love them:) I love walking in rain and they are perfect for it
    Hugs and kisses, darling

  2. I love my silver hunters.. I always get stares and tons of compliments whenever I wear them. Jealousy.. haha. I do love those stud ones too.

  3. The Pour La Victoire are some of my fave rain boots! You should come visit L.A right now...we are under water! Happy Wednesday :)

  4. I love my in AZ as well I know they weren't a practical purchase but every time the clouds roll in I get so excited at the possibility I might be able to wear them!

  5. I love my Hunters as well! Not usually the opportunity to wear them in LA, but right now it's pouring! If you like vintage clothing please come and check out our site and blog!


  6. I have a pair of forest green Hunter boots with a flat finish and I LOVE them but I kind of wish I'd gotten the Lava shade instead... I wear them all the time, though -- it for some reasons rains ALL the time at my school!

  7. hunter rain boots are so fun! i love the little socks you can buy to fold over the top!

  8. I just bought the graphite ones for one of my bff's for Christmas...hope she loves because I know I do.

    I have collected over the past few years a pair of Kate Spades, Aigle's, a couple Hunters and another brand I can't remember right now (clearly I've got issues, too btw)

    Anyway, the only beef I have with Hunters is they are high and can cut into your legs - but the liners alleviate that issue quickly :)

    ps-heading off to Canada and wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas/Holiday a little early!

  9. I am a big fan of Hunter's! I wish I owned a pair. I love all the colors :) They'd definitely be perfect for the gloomy weather here in SF!

    Stop by again soon!
