Charleston was drowning in the torrential downpours this morning. I'm pretty sure I ruined my Cole Haan flats in the huge puddles at Baby Girl's school. Gravel parking lots and flats don't mix after 3 hours of rain. I know, it's definitely first world problems, but man it made me grouchy.
I know I've been threatening for months, but after this morning's fiasco, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered the Brick Red High Gloss Hunter Rain Boots. I luckily found them on ASOS. They're practically sold out in every store. Figures. They truly can't get here soon enough. I've lived here for 10 years without a pair of rain boots. That's just silly.
I already own a cutey pie Hatley raincoat that I get so many compliments on every time I wear it. How cute is it going to look with those boots?! I may just be doing the rain dance more often now.

After having a long discuss about rain gear with the mamas and teachers at school, I decided to share my favorite raincoats and wells on the blog, just in case you find yourself in the same situation.
Have you heard of Joules? It's an adorable British company that carries some really adorable clothing and, of course, wellies. They're pretty reasonably priced too!

Boden USA, yet another amazing British clothing company, carries some wonderful hooded raincoats.
Check out these ensembles I put together:
I picked up this preciousness from Target this morning for Baby Girl.
She announced that she needs yellow rain boots to go with them. Nice coordinating little one! Now I have to decide if the yellow girl's Hunter boots are worth 50 bucks.
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because our school district has canceled school once again later this week and I have to miss ballet...again. That will make 4 weeks with no ballet. That means 4 weeks with no exercise. Yikes. I need to get my butt in gear.
