Rain Boots Are Not Just for the Rain

You might think I’m a little crazy for thinking that rain boots don’t always have to be worn in the rain (the entire thing they are named after), but I’m all about getting the most use out of anything I own. Versatility is key in any wardrobe. Today I’m busting three myths that you’ve probably heard about why you can’t wear rain boots in the snow. Trust me, it can be done! Read on to find out how!

Myth 1: Rain boots won’t hold enough insulation to keep your feet warm.

OK, it’s true, rain boots aren’t the most insulated shoes ever made. But that’s not to say they can’t be worn in the snow! With leg warmers and warm socks they will definitely be able to keep your feet happy and warm!

I suppose it depends on the rainboots you own, but mine have a lot of traction and I haven’t slipped once while wearing them in the snow! When shopping for rain boots look for ones that have a good tread.

Myth 3: Rain boots are too loose and will cause you to slip.

If you find your rain boots are too loose, then I have an easy solution. Invest in a pair of boot liners! There are so many cute styles and they can add an extra layer to help fill the space.  Thicker socks will also do the trick and leave your feet snug and warm.

I hope you all are staying cozy and stylish in whatever weather conditions you live in! Remember to surround yourself with people who will support you even when it rains, not just when it shines.

Keep smiling!

      Thanks! I don’t have a pair of Hunters either, but I think a pair of red ones will be my next choice!

    I love my rain boots! I have never really thought to wear them for other occasions but I see it done all the time and they always look so cute! I really want a pair of Hunter boots!! Some day 🙂

    • February 1, 2016 / 10:27 am

      I want a pair of Hunter’s too! Although I will say the detailing on these Ted Baker boots is amazing and I’m so glad I invested in these first!

    First let me say your rain boots are super cute. Love them. And I recently had to use my rain boots in all the snow because my snow boots were too short. I just add the boot socks and go.

    • February 1, 2016 / 10:28 am

      Thank you! I really do love these boots. I think it’s awesome that you wear rain boots in the snow too!

    What a clever way to explain the benefits of rain boots. Looks like I’ll be wearing mine more often 🙂

    • February 1, 2016 / 10:29 am

      Thank you! You really can wear them more often! And there are so many cute outfits you can create with rain boots!

    Oh gosh I love these boots!! The detailing of the bow and the side clasp are awesome. I really need to get a pair of hunters!

    • February 1, 2016 / 10:29 am

      Thanks Angela! I wish I had a pair of Hunters too, but this side clasp on the boots won my heart over! Red will be my next purchase.

      Thank you! Especially in Seattle, I find myself wearing them more often in the winter. And I need to clean mine too! It’s been over a month! Yikes!

      That’s right! I love that they are water proof so the snow doesn’t get inside! Thank you for the sweet compliments!

    Those boots are gorgeous! I certainly LOVE rainboots for snow!

      Thank you Susannah! So glad I’m not the only one who loves rain boots in the snow!

    I don’t own a pair (in my mind i always thought they looked not so good..) but the ones you are wearing are so pretty! Great way of busting some myths 🙂 Also, loved how you ended the blog with a very thoughtful message. Have a great weekend!

    • February 1, 2016 / 10:32 am

      Thank you Monika! I think if you find a dressier style of rain boots that you really love you can totally make it work. These Ted Baker rain boots definitely do the trick!

      🙂 Molly

    • February 1, 2016 / 10:33 am

      Thanks Marianne! They really do go together! Maybe because they are both Ted Baker!

    I love rain boots, especially yours. Super cute. I wore mine to the snow once and they were comfortable and my feet stayed dry. Your outfit is super cute too. 🙂

    • February 1, 2016 / 10:34 am

      Thank you! I’m glad wearing them in the snow worked out for you! One time I wore plain socks and my feet got WAY too cold! So I learned that leg warmers do the trick!

      Thank you, thank you! Hope you’re loving it in Dubai! I’ve heard great things!

      Thanks Sera! I definitely am glad I invested in these pair of Ted Bakers. They are so cute and comfortable and get lots of compliments wherever I go!

    There is absolutely no reason to no wear them in the snow!!! I love that mine are higher than my snow boots, which can be super helpful. Hugs, Kait

      Good point! It’s funny how a lot of snow boots aren’t tall! But they need to block out the wet snow just as much as the rain! Glad you wear yours in the snow too!

      🙂 Molly

    • February 1, 2016 / 10:37 am

      Thank you so much! and I totally agree! I love that I can create so many versatile ways to wear them! That means it’s a keeper for sure!

    Yes to all of the above! You look gorgeous, per usual. And this year I invested in pink Hunter boots and couldn’t be happier with it! They took me through the Northeast blizzard without a hitch, so I’m a fan!
