Believe it or not, I enjoy a good rainy day from time-to-time. It gives me a good excuse to wear oversized sweaters, lay in bed all day (if it’s not a work day) and sport cute rain boots when I finally get out off bed and out the front door.

A cute pair of rain boots can totally change the direction of a rainy day. It can turn my frown upside down and put a little extra pep in my step (pun intended). Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it makes getting around town in a downpour so much easier. Puddle in my way? No problem, I can splash my way through that without soaking my socks. And while I love my riding-boot-inspired rain boots, I had been lusting after a pair of ankle rain booties recently. Something seems so effortless and chic about a short boot that I don’t have to tug over my jeans.

Enter, Swims. The Dora boot was the answer to my rainy prayers. These ankle booties are easy to slip on as I run out the front door and work with almost any outfit I could dream up. Plus, the pop of orange brightens up even the most dreary of days. If I wasn’t trying to save money (ha!) I would seriously consider buying the Dora in all available colors. Let’s be honest, I’m considering it even though I’m trying to save money.



Sadly, it’s only rained twice since these beauties entered my life, but I wore them both days. I was excited enough just knowing I was wearing new rain booties, but it didn’t hurt that I received loads of compliments. Next thing you know, my entire office will be puddle jumping in their own pair of swims.

What footwear do you slip on when the rain starts?
