It’s super sunny today but last week Dallas got lots of rainy days and it was total bliss. Bliss because I got to wear new rain gear and the warm temperatures finally dropped into acceptable fall digits (yay, you don’t have to hear us complain anymore!). I have a love/hate thing with rainy weather because although gloomy skies and rain make it hard to get out of bed and do work, it’s so fun to get to wear wellies and bundle up a bit.
If you didn’t know, Hunter is the must-have boot brand that’s been making historically fantastic footwear since 1856—the British-based company has protected the feet of the army and royals but really became an in-house name after being spotted on UK it girls like Kate Moss and Alexa Chung. All my cool housemates in college had Hunter boots (Ohio was rainy and snowy) but I just got my first pair and chose a riding boot style that look just as good in the sun as they do in the rain. I also finally got my hands on a proper rain slicker…I say “proper” because my other rain coats are either athletic-looking or just non functional for dealing with actual wetness and cold temps. The fit of my new cherry-red jacket is so fab I wish I could wear it everyday. Sally and I did a fun Q+A on the Hunter Blog, sharing our rainy-day habits and style, and I hope you’ll check it out! Staying dry doesn’t mean sacrificing style.
