Bill Cunningham’s Splish Splash Photo from the New York Times
How true. Last week while New York experienced some pretty soggy days and I some pretty soggy feet, I found myself noticing an odd trend here in New York. Colorful and childlike rain boots. What made it even more odd is that I found myself wanting a pair. Such a fashion non-statement, yet I figure the more wild the better. Who wants just plain black Wellies?
From Bill Cunningham’s Sunday "On the Street": Candy-colored boots were the uniform during last week’s rain as buses and taxi cabs created mini tidal waves along Fifth Avenue, often drenching unsuspecting tourists in flip-flops. But New Yorkers were prepared, some wearing Wellington-style rain boots in darker colors, which were no match for the rainbow-colored umbrellas. Even a tiny dog wore rain gear.
YES! I LOOK FORWARD TO #GROWINGYOUNGER

The Magic Carpet rainboot is a bit too much… although one could pull it off with matching colors up top, I suppose.
