Rainy spring days are always a dressing dilemma. Dress in denim? Stick to shorts? I simplify my life by wearing anything that goes with my favorite red rainboots...or wellies as the Brits would say!
Although wellies existed since the time the Duke of Wellington first designed them, they were mostly relegated to the English countryside and fishermen. Kate Moss elevated the Hunter ones to iconic heights and the fashion world hasn't looked back since. Although most people stick to the dark green or black colored ones in keeping with the traditional design, I like my rainboots with a little more punch. So these red babies brighten up my days as I splash around DC puddles.

I know this last picture looks a little loopy. It actually has a perfectly logical explanation. I was inspired by the NY Times story about the Japanese girl, who has been taking pictures of herself 'levitating.' While my version looks nowhere as cool as hers, I had a blast jumping around while shooting it!
