Hunter Festival Short Wellington Boots, $103 (orig. $205)
I saw these boots recently on a super hip young mama at Whole Foods and was dying over them. She paired them with skinny olive green cargos, a slouchy cream sweater and an oversized black scarf. She looked absolutely fab while she was ever so calmly attempting to pry a package of gummy bears out of her son's hands. I am so impressed with the boldness of this boot. I mean there is color and then there is color. Neons and brights are splashing their way across every editorial page and fashion blog at the moment so these boots, despite being on sale, are still on trend.
A few questions remain: Is $100 too much for rain boots? (I live in a wet climate so rain boots often are a part of my weekly footwear rotation.) Will I tire of the royal blue? Will I be able to embrace the blatant stares at my tootsies? (Both good and bad?) You decide!
