Wednesday Wishes No. 14

Wednesday Wishes x Glossy Red Hunter Rain Boots

Since the days of Kate Moss waltzing into the Glastonbury Music Festival sporting Wellington boots I’ve wanted a pair. Unfortunately, I was not graced with model long legs and the 17 inch shaft has made these coveted boots a thing of impossibility for me. Until now. I was looking at the boots again recently when I spotted a newer version with a shorter shaft. The two inch shorter shaft means I can wear these boots I have wished for. While I won’t be pairing them with short shorts à la Kate The Great, I am excited for the fall flavored looks I can now put together.

I generally stick to a neutral palette when investing in an item, but I’m skipping my go-to practical shades for a bold glossy red rain boot instead. I normally avoid shades of red, but I cannot help smiling every time I see this cheery shade.

Plus an exhaustive Pinterest search (doesn’t Pinterest always suck us in for endless hours?) for color inspiration convinced me to follow my instinct towards the glossy red boots. I can easily wear this bold color as a neutral or highlight it against my favorite pale shaded sweaters, chambray tops, skinny jeans or even camo as I rotate the boots from one look to the next this fall.

    Congrats on finding a pair of Hunters that fit you! They really are essential: they are practical, wearable with almost anything and damn cute. I am on my 4th pair hoping to get a 5th soon!

      Your collection sounds fab! What colors do you have? I’m loving the red and they are adorable with everything! I’m hoping they will add more colors in the shorter length since right now there is only red and black. Sometimes my short legs feel like the bane of my existence! 😉

    I have black, white, royal blue and the regent apsley. I usually pair a ralph lauren polo that has a matching color on either the shirt or logo and then a blazer with the Regent boots. Red is a wonderful color as well as pink and yellow. I’m sure they will come out with more soon! Are you much of a dress girl? I have a ton of ideas i could show you if youd like!
