Rain, rain, go away, come again.. when I have Bogs to play in.

My relationship with rain was almost non-existent living in sunny southern California for the past 10 years. I couldn’t even tell you a memory I had of rain while living there except for maybe a mistaken mist from the ocean. With that said, you can probably imagine my confusion on what the right boots, shoes, coats and outfits are to wear in this Seattle weather!

I have been here for a year now and am still trying to get the hang of it.

Fortunately for me, I came across Bogs recently, and it has been a life changer! Bogs has boot styles that can resist the rain with their waterproof technology but still look good enough to wear for a happy hour or date night out with my man. You don’t have to give up style for comfort and efficiency like I thought you would have to with rain boots.

I don’t feel like I have to bring a change of shoes with me once I’m out of the rain because my Bogs boots go perfectly with any outfit and stay dry while I’m making my way through the puddles. I don’t have to be afraid of the rain and that is SO liberating! haha. I actually don’t mind the rain too much but it does make life easier with a cute pair of rain boots to rock.

Also the stability and quality of these boots make them worth every penny and why they last forever. I swear I will end up with a shelf or two of Bogs in my lifetime.. or pass them down to the grandkids. No joke. Watch me. Little Timothy wearing Grandma’s rain boots. Ok maybe not but you get the idea.

If you haven’t heard of Bogs before then you HAVE to check them out for this upcoming Winter season! There’s is nothing worse than wet feet and you know that’s true.  Check out some of my FAVS from Bogs below and get yours at

    Love quality and stability in a boot. Likely going to wear them with jeans, jeans and jeans and a a big scarf! πŸ™‚

  • Tamara Mendoza

    These look really comfortable! I need a good boot for rain/snow that are good for all day wear. And the best part about these is they don’t look super bulky either.

  • Lis Tor

    It gets wet here in Chicago especially after all the snow melt .. So I’ll definitely be wearing these with some jeans and a cozy cardigan πŸ™‚ And I’m sure they’ll even last me a few years !

    It’s really not always sunny in Philadelphia! I’ve been scouring the internet for boots that are warm, cute, and waterproof and these are it! I would love to wear them with leggings and an oversized sweater — cute winter look.

  • Christina Roote

    I have been wanting a pair of nice boots for the winterβ›„ and these look great I shall be dancing

  • Amanda Fox

    Love these! It’s so hard to find cute rain boots.

  • These are so perfect for me as I shovelled snow for the third time tonight feeling miserable. Running errands on the weekend, or going out for dinner with my g/friends wearing these boots would make me feel so special during this miserable winter that has already started for us. Thanks Des for sharing, and for all you do on this site which is great!

  • Lidiya Ervin

    These would be so cute for everyday wear! Im on the other side of WA & we’re about to get hit with snow!

  • Kelsey Betts

    I have a pair of the more heavy duty ones that work great for snow/fishing, but I had not looked further into the shoe line. They truly are fashionable, as is the outfit you wore showcasing them. That puffy vest is uh-mazing with that hood and flannel πŸ™‚
