These boots are made for romping

I'm in love with my rain boots. I never thought I would say that because I used to despise rain boots - the fact that they awkwardly hit your knees and you can't romp around in them bothers me. Also the polka dots and cheesy patterns DON'T GO WITH ANYTHING so I just opted for LL Bean duck boots instead. I think those were 1 of 2 rain boots I've ever owned ever, and I'm a big fan of holding off on something indefinitely until it's meant to be. 

Finally I found these boots last year and they've brought me a sense of peace: 

Matte Chelsea Rain Boot / J Crew / $65 Not available now in my beloved army green but I think the dark burgundy could be a future stunner since I've been seeing the Kardashians doing all burgundy looks (I just keep tabs on them not KEEP UP per se, but I digress...)

THESE BOOTS ARE IT. I've been wearing them the past 4 days in LA since it has been consistently raining for way too long (we're spoiled). My socks were COMPLETELY dry the whole week while my unprepared friends expressed frustration about their soggy footwear. I wouldn't recommend them in a city link Nola where rain is serious, but for your everyday storm they deliver. I feel unconstricted when wearing them so I find myself sporting them in festivals since they don't have a risk of getting ruined. They're not Hunters but they still give me Kate Moss vibes as this image has forever been burned into my skull:

Here's a few other options for boots you can live in:

Alex Chelsea Rain Boots / Target / $25 In terms of style these look almost identical and they're so cheap! I've never been a fan of Target shoes in terms of comfort but hopefully these are ok.
