After three years of living in LA with about as many rainstorms in that timeframe, this winter has been a wet one. No longer are people freaking out that water is falling from the sky and we can all carry on like normal people with our windshield wipers in full force. These short rain boots have been so amazing this winter, making every rainy day outfit a breeze. I have taller Hunter rain boots that are super cute but so, so difficult to take off and, frankly, not always the easiest to put on. These short boots pop on and off with no work, and they’re still tall enough to keep me dry and happy!
I usually save this sock bun hairdo for dressier occasions and I’m not sure why. I wore this casual look last weekend and was very pleased with it. I ended up taking off the headband before the end of the day – it can give me a headache – and just wore the bun to a very casual dinner with friends. It’s such a great way to keep hair out of your face – I may need to bring it into my repertoire more often. I have an older post with a easy sock bun tutorial if you’re unfamiliar with the process. It’s actually a very imperfect technique that can look flawless!
