Now that it is officially the rainy season in Seattle, it is time to dedicate a post to an item that is arguably the most important footwear for anyone living in the Pacific Northwest:  the rain boot.  While not the sexiest pair of boots in my closet, they keep my feet dry during these dreary, wet days.  I piled on cozy layers consisting of a plaid flannel shirt, cardigan, and scarf over my black Citizens of Humanity denim leggings to complete the look.

I am no stranger to rain boots, having lived in the original Wellington boots while hauling hay bales and mucking horse stalls as a kidHowever, these days the options are much more fashionable and lighter weight!  I know that the Hunter brand rainbow of colors was splashed all over advertisements and displays last year, so I've left out bright colors from this post and focused on a more neutral palette of black, gray, and beigeCheck out the save and splurge options that I picked out below.

A not-so-basic black:

What are your thoughts on rain boots?  Are current styles fashionably acceptable?  I hope that wherever you are, you are staying warm and dry.  =)  Happy Tuesday!
