Daily Covet: Puddle Jumping with Hunter

Last fall/winter, I searched high and low for rain boots that I loved.

And more importantly rain boots that actually fit my calves.

I found some equestrian-style boots that I adore, and have to laugh at the fact that I have been looking for rain boots when this is the dryest summer on record.

But you know how I love to start early.  So, I’ve located cute rain boots with a 16 1/4″ circumference around the calf area.  Not only will these Hunter boots  fit, but I will also have extra room to tuck in my skinny jeans, which has been problem #2 with most boots.

While I’ve ordered Sporto boots, Sperry boots and have tried on others, I have yet to find the “right” pair.

Hopefully, these cute Hunter Bessy Boots will be my ticket to puddle jumping this fall…. That, and some rain in the midwest.

Raindrops, please fall on my Aigle rain boots

Rain boots.  I don’t have ’em.  I’ve ordered and tried on loads of rain boots… my calves are too big.  (Don’t get me started on that annoying subject!)

So when Aigle rain boots popped up on Gilt.com this morning for $99, I was intrigued.  I always look, but never buy.  But I love how cute they are on people with skinny legs and who are taller than 5’3″ on a good day.

I probably won’t buy rain boots, but for those of you, who love them AND look good in them (grrrrrr…), this is a pretty FAB price for Aigles.  I also won’t buy them because we’ve skipped the second half of winter and spring, and moved right into a sunny summer here.

They have them in virtually every color too.  But these are a few of my faves…

Daily Covet: This winter, I’ll have some “Spring” in my step!

I’ve been looking for some water proof boots for my short commute back and forth to preschool 3 days a week.  Fortunately and unfortunately, my son’s preschool is right across the street, which means we can walk out our front door and up the block to get there in a matter of minutes.  This also means that it’s absurd to drive it when the weather is horribly nasty, slick and wet.

So I am on the lookout for rain/snow boots.  I have been looking at these particular Sportos for a few months now and have finally decided to make them my feature.  I love the print, calling to mind a little spring time even in the dead of winter.

And speaking of dead, I am completely dead set on ordering them too.  If it wasn’t Christmas shopping season… the season for giving… to other people, I probably would’ve done it already without guilt.

And if I need further motivation, these are one of the least expensive pairs of boots on Zappos.com.  This is something that never happens to me!
