It has been rainy here in Perth the last few days. Sadly, it's not cold so the resulting days are humid :(
I've been on the lookout for a good umbrella for a long time. I love compact umbrellas, so I can fold it and carry it in my bag. Whenever I buy an umbrella, it seems to die once a gust of wind comes along. Apparently, Perth is the second windiest city in the world, so that doesn't mix well with umbrellas.
I don't ask for much in an umbrella, I want it to cover my hair and makeup. I don't want the rain to wash off my eyebrows and ruin my hair!
My favourite rain boots are my Dr. Martens. I make sure to polish them well, so they are water proof. They're great for splashing around.
These are my current boots and they're looking a bit sad.
They have a hole in the sole, that lets in the water! :( That means I get sad wet feet.
Luckily, I have bought a new pair.
I got these second hand on ebay. I totally recommend buying online, as they are much cheaper than getting from a store. You can do the sneaky thing, and go into a store to find your size then buy online. It seems a bit low, but the shoes in the store can cost $200 when they're only $100 online.
I'm not looking forward to breaking them in, there will be many blisters and bandaids. Once I have broken them in I will have a lovely pair of boots for the coming winter! Yay!!
