You wake up on a Tuesday & it’s pouring rain. Are you going to let that ruin your day? Heck no, sister. You’re going to add a dab of anti-frizz serum to that mane, ensure you’re wearing a trench worthy outfit, grab an extra Kind bar, & hop into your rain boots (shorties or tall boys) on your way out the door. This rain’s not stopping you! Can’t stop. Won’t stop. Get it girrrrl.
Now, that’s all fine & dandy on a weekday morning. That rain’s not gonna stop you – girl’s gotta get paid. But when that misty frizz maker swoops in on a Saturday morning… It’s a game changer. There’s no dress code on Saturdays. You’ve got no meetings to run. Ain’t nobody expecting you anywhere in a pencil skirt. The world of weekend rainwear is your oyster. & take it from one clothes horse to another – that’s actually a daunting prospect. Do you yoga pant it? Of course not. You’re an adult, for crying out loud. Will jean cut offs work? Sure if it’s July but we’re well into the Fall season & it’s likely 40 something degrees outside. Don’t mess with pneumonia. Should you add some type of skirt to the situation? Please. This is a weekend day.
My rainy weekend bottom of choice has become any flavor of ripped denim that’s comfy enough to maneuver puddles in & who’s color won’t run when you decide to splash in aforementioned puddles. Why? Because, honestly, you can’t go wrong in ripped denim. & unless you’re going to a formal affair, they should do the trick on a rainy Saturday.
This has only recently become my rainy day M.O. since finding my new favorite pair of SOREL boots. Before these SOREL Out N About classic booties made their way into my closet, I fumbled with lace up boots, tall boots, & clunky boots that I just couldn’t figure out. I was working way too hard when the whole time these shorties were the only boots I needed. Classic, original, modern, PERFECT. They keep you 100% dry & won’t compromise your super chic weekend outfit. Shorties are easier to get into, run around the city in, they don’t rub the back of your calf off, & they don’t splash water up the back of your outfit. Le sigh. If only I’d know about these sooner. I’m telling you, these are life winners.
