New Rainboots (And Why I Am Not A Model)

DSC 2528blog

The one and only pair of rainboots I ever owned were black, rubber goulashes.  They were the same exact pair that my brother and sister had.  And the only time we wore them was when we had to muck out the horses' stalls (we had six horses growing up).  This was the limit of my rainboot experience.

When I grew up more, I realized that you can actually get rain boots that are also cute - and that they can be a fun fashion statement!  Who knew?  I never got a pair of fashionable rainboots, but I admired them from afar.

 Joules is a clothing company based in the UK, and they also have a broad selection of adorable rainboots!  I was so excited when they offered to send me a pair!

I had a pretty hard time deciding which ones to pick, but I finally settled on these purple striped rainboots.

I finally got them in the mail the other day, and I love them!  The sizing seems to be right on - they might be a smidge big, but it's the perfect amount of room for some thick socks to keep my feet warm in the colder months.  I also thought it was cute because there is a touch of the traditional rainboot yellow on the back of the boots - I don't know if all Joules boots have that, but I loved the nod to tradition on these boots!

They are completely waterproof, which is perfect for the schizophrenic weather we have at this time of year - they work in snow, slush, puddles, or mud.  Practical, but I love that I can feel like I look cute wearing them at the same time!

These are just one of a ton of patterns and colors of rain boots that Joules sells - check out their website to see all the options!  Personally, the brown floral rainboots and pink polka dot rainboots also caught my eye, but they also have more neutral colors and patterns for those who don't want such bright boots.  If you are in the market for wellies (or other types of clothing, for that matter - I thought a lot of their dresses were also adorable), definitely check them out!

And just for fun . . . all the pictures above are the ones that turned out fairly well - the other half of my pictures are always so goofy!  I never know what to do with myself when I'm taking outfit pictures.

Derek is always my photographer for these pictures, and I can't remember which one of us had the brilliant idea to try a jumping photo, but I felt ridiculous and Derek was pretty much cracking up laughing at me.

And this, my friends, is why I would never make it in the modeling industry.

Note: Joules was kind enough to send me a pair of rainboots for free in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.

I love them! When we were kids, I always had to have plain black snow boots because my little brother would wear them the following winter...oh, how I longed for pink snow boots with fur at the top! :) In college I had a pair or red rain boots with white polka dots that I LOVED. They kept my feet so dry going from class to class. I'm still sad that after years of use they got cracks in the bottom and I had to toss them in the trash :( ...maybe it's time for a new pair! :)

I love the pictures, you look like you were having fun :) Those rainboots are cute! I've never owned a pair for fashion - all mine are used when I am cleaning stalls ha ha. Mine are black with polka dots, but they don't stay very clean.
