I’m not usually fond of the rain, nor am I a fan of uncomfortable rubber boots. When the roads are full of puddles, I’d rather stay home and cuddle. Not to mention that umbrellas don’t always work in the strong wind down the avenues. So in addition to the sometimes malfunctioning umbrella, I need a solution to stay warm and dry this season. How about a bright waterproof jacket with a pair of stylish waterproof boots? A cute cold rainy day outfit makes a gloomy day instantly better.
Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket (size XS).
The fabric is made from 100% recycled nylon and a breathable waterproof barrier. Light-weight and packable, it’s great for travel too. You can fold the jacket into one of it’s pockets like this:
An even lighter option of a rainy-day jacket is the water resistant Patagonia Houdini Jacket. However since today’s post is for cold weather, check out the insulated version of the Torrentshell Jacket for additional warmth.
The bag is bought from Kinokuniya Bookstore in NYC. They have a little Japanese boutique downstairs.
Blondo Waterproof Boots (old, size 5.5, tts).
I bought these boots last year, and they were my go-to winter boots. Since I plan to wear them a lot this season again, I had the heels repaired last week for $35. Sometimes shoe repairing can turn your beloved old boots into like-new condition.
