Grab Your Wellies Folks, It’s Springtime!


While we have been experiencing an unusually warm March here in Boston, rainy spring can’t be held off forever.

Rainboots, or “wellies”, are one of my favorite types of footwear.

I like to wear them while doing yard work.

Sometimes I wear them when I shovel (with wool socks!). I like them better than snow boots because they are less bulky. However, they don’t have much traction against ice.

I started wearing them to prevent the dreaded “wet pant ankles” epidemic.

I love rubber boots because they come in all sorts of fun colors (for example: I own a bright red pair and another pair that makes it looks like I have giant rolls of Lifesaver candies on my feet).

Rainboots are very durable. I’ve had my striped pair (from Filene’s Basement) for 7 years! I think a new pair will be in order soon.

Maybe I’ll pick up a new floral print:


Or these blue polka dot cutie booties:


There’s no better way to brighten up a dreary day than a classic pair of yellow galoshes.


Maybe someday I’ll win the lottery and will splurge on fancy rainboots like these classic Hunters:


These Sperry rainboots look nice and sturdy! And particularly warm.


We shall see!

Happy Monday and Happy Spring!

Rain, Rain [Don’t] Go Away

I love rain. Really, I do.

Sometimes I think I should move to Seattle because I’d be one of the few people to actually enjoy the weather.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a sunshiney day as much as the next person, but rainy days don’t get me down.

A big reason for this is Wellies.

This picture is of me and some friends back in college.

Who could hate rain when you have THOSE on your feet? (Mine are the ones that look like Lifesavers by the way.)

And yes. They are still kicking. : )

So today, I welcome Wellie-Season.

Do you own rainboots? Or special rain gear? Do you like rain as much as me, or am I off my rocker?
