Rain Rain Don't Go Away

My sister Nicole has always had a thing for wellies. When she was five, she had a pair of purple Barbie wellies that she wore for a class fieldtrip to a farm outside London. Given the mucky English earth, it really is a must if one does not want to be stuck in the mud. Literally.

So as if to relive those memories, lookie what she has! Perfect for the coming rainy days!



Given our typhoon prone location, its a wonder why wellies are not popular here. We ought to wear these rather than flip flops! Just imagine the dirty water our feet get exposed to when it rains and God forbid - floods up!


One more pic Nic!!!


Hehehe!

i used to use wellies when i as a kid too but when we came back to the phils they werent as handy. it gets really icky when water gets into your wellies and then pools at the bottom. ick

cutie said...

Hey richelle! Really? It does that? I guess if the boots are immersed in deep water or the boots are a bit loose then that'll happen. But for regular wet days I guess it won't be the case...

Heehee! Thanks again cutie! I'll definitely keep on posting so you don't have to read the same stuff over! =)

I've an adorable pair of wellies from Banana Republic - they look like riding boots, with the tweed design and "antique" look to the buckles. They are perfect for sloshing around in the rain! Although I'm not too sure about how they would fare in Philippine tropical rainstorms... :-)

cd said...

You're boots do sound adorable! Very classic and WASPy hehehe! But I'm thinking, it might be "too nice" to use here because Philippine typhoons can get really strong and the dirty water might just ruin it! Yours are the sort of boots with a design that will stand the test of time kasi!
