Wardrobes and Wellies



I was cleaning out my closet a little while ago, going through my winter clothes (and shoes) sorting the clothes that don’t fit, clothes that have gotten old and clothes I just plain old don’t like anymore. At the end of it all I came away with big old giant pile of clothes to donate.

Pleased with myself at my glorious organization skills and perfectly neat closet I took a look around…and realized I have nothing to wear! It was kind of shocking. Me? The person who loves to shop with nothing to wear? This couldn’t be possible.

But when I thought about it and thought about the last time I’d gone shopping for clothes I really couldn’t place my finger on it. What I came up with after pondering for a few more minutes was that I must have just forgot to go shopping.

In the midst of a baby being small, a new home and my full-time work at home status from my job I had managed to forget about my wardrobe. I’ve tending to skip the clothes shopping lately in favor of shopping for house related stuff. Absolutely not the worse problem to have in your life but definitely something I’m going to change.

So my latest New Years Resolution 2 1/2 weeks late is to start to replenish my wardrobe. Slowly, buying things that I love. Guess what? It’s kind of liberating knowing that it’s time to get out there to shop. Which brings me to the Wellies part of my ramblings.

I have been dying to get my hands on a pair of rainboots for a while. I mean it’s winter, it’s cold and wet. I think that’s enough of a reason to buy a pair.

Now my question is colorful or classic? Do you own a pair?

    Yes I do own a pair and I hope to add more. I have the classic gloss black and I LOVE them. They are warm and keep you dry.
    The funny thing is when I wear them people ask me if I ride horses?

    I would like to get them in Merlot – a neutral red.

      Thanks Tery, I’m dying to get a pair. I love the Merlot too but I’m wondering if I’d get more use out of a more neutral color?

    Belated comment (from a new reader!)! I have a pair in red and absolutely love them! They’re VERY COMFORTABLE AND mould well to your footbed. Did you end up buying a pair?
