Here is where I happily talk about my new favorite boots. Nope, they're not riding boots or over the knee boots or even cute new booties for Fall. They are the Hunter 'Tour' Packable rain boots! With my trip to Michigan coming up this week, I knew I would need something a bit more substantial to wear around town. I don't think my cute little cornucopia of flats would cut it in the pouring rain and mud, which the forecast says will be happening a couple of the days that we're there. I thought long and hard about this purchase because it is certainly not an inexpensive one. I repeatedly came to virtually visit the shoes online and even went so far as to have a dream where I was wearing them! This is when I need I really needed them, if only to save my dreams for more important messages.
I debated over navy, black and military red and finally settled on military red. I read somewhere that seeing a pop of color on rainy days can really improve your mood so I thought I would test out that theory. I debated between these boots and the original, but according to a bunch of reviews, the originals can be a bit bulky with lots of walking and I am sure we are going to be walking quite a lot during this trip. I took these for a test spin when I first got them and they are fantastic! They are so light and easy to walk around in. As an added bonus, they are also packable so I can bend them in half and toss them in the hunter bag they came with so I can pack them for my trip. I also grabbed a pair of fleece hunter socks to go with them so my feet are going to be dry and cosy all Fall, Winter and Spring! They are also going to be so cute and stylish! I can see myself wearing these the entire trip. They are even on sale right now on Nordstrom.com! Check them out!
