We’re heading straight into the chilly, wet winter days of the year. In fact, it’s 53* and raining out the window as I sit here typing this now, dreaming of the 78* sunshine we were blessed with just yesterday. But the seasons will change so we’ll take it as it comes with a little style and grace! And I’m doing that with these pink Sperry waterproof boots that I got at the start of fall just for these type of days.
These duck boots are such a great blend between practical and fashionable. The pink and beige color palette is a nice change from typical duck boots and is just what I need for my wardrobe filled with light tones and pastels. My favorite feature about these is the knotted, rubberized laces that you never need to think about because the boots zip up the inside for easy in and out. The tongue is thick and padded, and the inside is warm and lined in microfleece. Everything about these is comfort and sensibility, but they’re cute to boot! They’re also 40% off right now making them under $75! I’ve been wearing them since I got them around the lake house property, which is an always-wet environment no matter the weather.
We spent an early morning watching the sun rise over the water on a weekend of warmer days. These boots even look great with shorts, when sometimes wet-weather boots can look a bit clunky on bare legs. These shorts are the same ones that I haven’t stopped wearing since the weather turned warm this year. They’re the final word for cutoff shorts as far as my wardrobe is concerned. I just bought another of this exact pair for next year, because they’re on sale for only $38 right now (normally $128) thanks to being out of season.
I also wore this colorful striped button up top which is from Forever 21. It’s the perfect type of shirt for the lake house, where I tend toward utilitarian with my clothes. It’s a great option that can be worn over a swimsuit top, mostly unbuttoned to let the air through, or more buttoned and closed up if you’re catching a chill from the wind. Two buttons and rolled-up sleeves were just the ticket on this warm and breezy morning at the lake.
