Style File | Rainy Days with Joules

utumn rain always seems to catch me by surprise. Just yesterday I neglected to peek at Weather Underground and scampered off to work in a pair of ballet flats only to find myself dashing through a downpour after work. My car wasn’t far away, but it was still enough time for my shoes to fill with water (and if you think an evening commute is bad, try it with wet, cold feet). That miserable experience offered plenty of motivation to arm myself with an arsenal of rainy day attire that can handle the chilly precipitation, starting with a pair of Joules rain boots.

I already own a pair Joules wellies in turquoise, which I adored last winter, but I’d love to add a more subdued pair to my wardrobe in either olive or black. The glossy finish pairs well with classic, sophisticated items. Try a cropped quilted jacket and a menswear-inspired scarf for a casual look or go glam with a faux fur scarf (it also comes in the prettiest emerald green) and a cozy wool coat. Whatever you do, make sure you stick with a saffiano leather purse. The textured finish repels water and keeps the bag looking pristine.

    I don’t currently own a pair of rain boots but is heavily considering it after yesterday’s down pour. By the way, I really like the sweater.

    I hate rainy days. If I had my way, I’d just never leave the house. I thought having a proper pair of rain boots might change the situation, but lo and behold, six months later they are still in the box.

    Oh, I love those rain boots! Living in CT we get a lot of fall rain, so rain boots are a must in my wardrobe! I love the simplicity of these ones and they look high quality as well. They can be styled in lots of fun ways, too! Cozy coats and lots of layering is a must in the rain for sure! Great picks.
