First, we had a few gray days in September. Then it got a little chilly...that was right before it got up to 80 degrees but I sorta blocked that out. Right after the gray and the chilly, I was reminded and inspired by Nicole over at Making it Lovely (and a lovely home she does have, check out the Apartment Therapy Chicago featured slideshow here) about the Hunter wellies. I need to remind myself on a daily basis that it rains about 5 times a year here in southern California and thus I don't NEED rainboots. Oh, but a girl can dream. What color to get when I finally move to an area where there are seasons and it does rain more than a few times a year...pumpkin, chocolate, red, yellow, navy, or green. I guess it also must get cool enough to wear the fleece wellie socks.
You can find the Hunter Original rain boots online at Nordstroms, Zappos, Piperlime, Shopbop and Saks. I did see a few on ebay but rumor has it that the sizing runs big. I would go to a store and figure out your size before ordering something on ebay that is not returnable.
