I firmly believe in an unspoken rule saying that if it is raining, one should not be required to wear anything but sweatpants and/or (at the very dressiest) jeans. Unfortunately, the rest of the working world has yet to catch on...
A few years ago, I bought myself an after-Christmas treat of a pair of Hunter boots. I LOVE them. They are super cool (in case you didn't know).
So... On the very rare occassion that it is raining or snowing and I need to be out in it for an extended period of time, they are the PERFECT practical accessory for any outfit. But, I'm going to guess that happens about, oh, ONE time per year. Most days that it is pouring down rain, I'm only going to walk from my car to the door of wherever I'm going, and I'll be in inside (where it is not wet and puddley) the rest of the day. (Don't even get me started on days where it starts out raining in the morning and by afternoon it is 70 degrees and sunny... Talk about looking like a tool in rain boots at 4PM.)

It's been raining for a few days here with no plans of stopping, which has left me pondering some very important life questions such as, how exactly does one wear Wellies in real life?
To find the answers, I consulted - who else? - Pinterest. And, I thought I'd share my findings with you all - just in case these sort-of things keep you up at night too. (All of the below opinions are my own, photos and inspiration simply provided by Pinterest. Feel free to disagree.)
Appropriate ways to wear wellies:
With fun tights on ANYONE under 12, ANYTIME. Or, on someone with funky/trendy style (like my friend Mary - you could totally do it girl).
With a long trenchcoat on rainy days when you are going to be outside (at least 50% of the day).
