splashing around with joules rain boots

Joules Dog Rain Boots

As I’m typing this post, I’m enjoying lots of sunshine in Virginia; however, last month was a different story. I don’t think the rain stopped for an entire week, our dogs smelled, the back yard was flooded, and I lived in my Joules rain boots. Seriously, it’s a good thing they’re cute and comfortable because they’ve definitely been a wardrobe staple for me this spring. I’ve been wanting these Joules navy dog print rain boots forever (I even pinned them to Pinterest exactly 27 weeks ago) so when I was contacted to try them out for myself, I jumped at the chance. These are the exact ones I wanted! The rubber is thick and flexible, my feet stay dry, they’re unique, and Joules rain boots come with a one year welly guarantee.

fall riding boots

After wearing my riding boots during every vacation we’ve been on since living in Scotland {European vacations involve a lot of walking}, the heel decided to disappear and I had to throw them out last week. I probably should have thrown them out months ago because they were getting extremely uncomfortable, but sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect boot; I loved the color and the fit! Minus the non-existent sole… Here are a few options I’m thinking about. Which pair do you like?
