Hello fashion style moguls!! How are you guys! I can’t believe I am wearing gumboots as a fashion statement and not just for the sake of the rain. I was never going to do a post on gumboots until a fellow fashion blogger wanjiru challenged me and I took the challenge. When I was growing up, I vaguely remember having a red pair of gumboots and I loved to jump in the rain and play in the puddles, seems like yesterday.
As promised I will let you know why I bought these bad boys#gumboots. Thanks to my previous job, I used to travel far from home and it used to rain during that period, early this year. I used to get rained on daily despite having an umbrella and using public means of transport can be tricky#annoying.
One day when I was going home it rained so heavily and I was totally drenched, moreover, I had walked on so many puddles and my shoes had water inside which was just disgusting. I got so mad and got into a bata store to get gumboots, I initially wanted black but white was the only color available and as they say desperate times…..That is how I got these babies only to find out later they were a blessing in disguise.
I paired my gumboots with a pair of leggings and a denim jacket, the leggings tucked inside the gumboots give them a neat finishing touch. Have you guys seen this trend of wearing a denim jacket without anything inside except a bra and pulling it at the back to make a design illusion, I tried it and this was the outcome….how do I look?
Everybody wants happiness. Nobody wants pain but you can’t have a rainbow without little rain
Stay fashionable, stay stylish and be a fashion style mogul!
