Rainy Day Essentials

Spring has officially sprung! And with that means lots of April Showers. 

Now, you all know I'm a massive fan of my Hunter Boots because they've made more than one appearance on the blog (and more frequently in my life). I will say that when I bought them in 2012 I was a tad bit disappointed that the iconic British rain boots were now made in China. Honestly, I thought when the description said, "imported" it meant they would come from the UK.  Oh how I was mistaken. 

And, I have found myself stuck on warmer rainy days with the dilemma - Hunters or no Hunters? Keep my legs dry from the rain, but potentially risk sweating like a crazy person because it's 70+ degrees outside and 90+ humidity? I'm heading out for work next week and it looks like rain is in the forecast and I can't justify taking my massive boots with me on the chance it rains. That's way too much prime real estate taken up in my carryon suitcase for just one pair of shoes. 

Enter Oka-B flats. Made in the USA, in more colors to count, and with added embellishments if you're so inclined, dishwasher safe (yeah, you read that correctly) and recyclable.  The reason I don't own a pair yet is because I can't make a decision on a color. #firstworldproblems 

What's your go-to rainy day attire?


  1. I've been thinking about getting rain ready ballet flats! Sometimes it's not raining hard enough to need Hunter boots but you don't want to ruin your other shoes!

  2. Love those flats! I will definitely have to check them out!

  6. This is a revelation! I've just come home and I was drenched because of the torrential rain (lol to the funny coincidence). But even thought I was happy my feet were dry, I couldn't wait to take my boots off because it was getting way too hot! Those flats could be the solution to my problem!
