Hi, everyone! Happy 2015 to you alll! I hope you all enjoyed a delightful holiday with family or friends. :) I'm enjoying the bits of my break that remain, which is proving difficult considering New York's lackluster weather lately. Given all of the rain this season, I've found myself wishing I had a pair of short rain boots. I already own a tall pair from Burberry, but they can be somewhat cumbersome and a little difficult to match with the rest of my things. Plus, wearing them means always sporting the Burberry check, which, albeit undeniably very elegant, is not something I necessarily wish to wear all of the time. When I saw these Jimmy Choos, I was astounded - they hardly even look like rain boots at all! These classy rain boots look almost like patent leather boots. I got them from Saks, and they were also at Bergdorfs, though the saleslady told me they were all sold out and limited sizes were available online. They are called the Jimmy Choo Jai rain boots :)
Very proud to say that this is my second pair of Jimmy Choos, haha! ;) I featured the Youth boots in a recent post; they've swiftly become my go-to boot - the boots are super easy to slip on and off and very comfortable.
Though I am in love with these, they are a bit difficult to get into - I actually have to unbuckle them to get them on and off, which is not as convenient as a slip-on rain boot. Bearing in that mind, I also like these Burberry slip on boots. If you like the Burberry check like I do, then you will probably love these or these! :) If you love studs, these Valentinos are perfect; if bows are your preference, these Burberrys should do the trick. Taller alternatives include these Givenchys and these Valentinos.

As for other rain goodies, I've been eying all the gorgeous McQueen umbrellas, but I'm wont to leave umbrellas around, so I can't make such a risky purchase! ;)
