What happened to the April showers bringing May flowers? It's supposed to stop raining now, come on Mother Nature! This weekend was about 50 degrees and rainy the whole time, so I reverted back to some of my fall staples - stripes, my utility jacket, and the Hunters.

I feel like I get asked all the time about my Hunters, whether they're worth the price, etc. The main differences between cheaper rain boots that I've seen is that they fit much closer to my calfs, which I like since it makes me look more streamlined, they get dirty looking faster because they're real rubber (it's called blooming, see my DIY post on how to clean them on the cheap), and they haven't yet sprung a leak (fingers crossed!). Every pair of rain boots I had in the past was in the $100 and under range, and none of them lasted more than a year. That alone seems to make them worth the price.

I bought my pair on the fly in the middle of a blizzard when my snow boots died (they were the only size/color available for basically any boot I could find, and I went to 3 or 4 different stores!) and while I love them, I'm kind of sad I didn't get another color - red would be so fun!

  2. I'm glad th boots have worked out for you! I feel like I'm always hearing conflicting reviews on the Hunters. I bought a pair of sperry rainboots a year or two ago when the same thing happened to me one winter! They worked well for a little over a year, but they're not leaking in the back. Just in time for FL's rainy season :-(

  6. The sun just came out in Vancouver after four days straight days of grey skies and rain. I guess we shouldn't be surprised, but come on - it's June! At least there are stylish rain boots for wet weather, though. I haven't broken down and bought Hunters yet but every year I think about it, especially when I see someone wearing them in such a cute way like you are here :)
