Not sure when this became the norm, but suddenly wearing rain boots is fashionable. I'm all about trends so I jumped on this bandwagon when I realized how helpful rain boots would be in Charlotte snowstorms. Although the Hunter rain boots are the popular choice among celebrities, I couldn't justify the hefty price tag when making my rain boot purchase.

I found a great pair of blue rain boots from Banana Republic while I was Christmas shopping and was lucky enough to purchase them while on sale (they're still on sale for $34.99).

Today I got to wear the entire rain ensemble ... trench coat (also from Banana Republic), rain boots, and broken umbrella from NYC that I bought during one of my last visits. The best part of the rain today was seeing the sun shining around 5pm after the rain had finally stopped.
