{In Need Of New Rain Boots!}


I'm so confused. It was 80 degrees on Sunday while I participated in the Atlanta Hunger Walk. It was a wonderful sneak peak into what's to come... and then today. 

It's cold. 

It's 45 and rainy. I had a few errands to run and I quickly went to my classic yellow wellies. Some really old school ones. But they're so beat up, I didn't want to do the disservice of messing up a relatively comfy outfit. And I really wanted to keep my yellow watch on, so bright yellow rain boots would be way to match-y match-y. Right!

Hence, some kick ass lace-up and tie boots I found hiding in the back of my closet by Donald Pliner to pair with the most comfy pair of leggings my mom bought me at T.J. Maxx. These are the kind of boots I used to love wearing with long maxi skirts, short dresses, skinny jeans and sometimes flirty skirts. So glad we're reacquainted. Their ruggedness comes just in time for a messy walkway and splitter splatter streets.

And, by the way, much like the Fendi pumps I showed you a couple of weeks ago, isn't it great to find oldies but goodies in your closet?! Is that a sign of having too much or just not loving those things the same as the items on constant rotation? I speak of both the boots and the blue bag-- both so apropos for the weather.  Love it. 

Now if I could only buckle down and buy some new rubber rain boots, I'll be good.

i guess yah, the rainboots/watch combo may have detracted from it's eye catching abilities. hope you find the perfect pair, Paris is callin' your name and you know they get maja rainy downpours. it's like a future investment of sorts ; )

Ladies!!! Hey! Hope you've had a great week! Thanks for all the kind and sweet comments! This day was a hot mess for shooting! My hair was still super wet, it was raining outside, which you can't really tell so I was rushing to take a few self-shots (imagine that!); but I was comfortable and that's all that mattered on Tuesday!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll let you know when I find that perfect pair of wellies. Been eyeing Hunters for quite some time now.. What do you thinK!?!
