I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest for 10 years now- and I’ve had children playing outdoor soccer for the past 6 years, and while I love watching those cute little kiddos running around in a wet sloppy field chasing after a ball- I don’t love being covered in mud afterwards, and yet it took me years to realize I needed rain boots! What took me so long? Who knows? I guess I’m a slow learner! Luckily, my local Fred Meyer carries tons of rain boots- and cheap too! I will say though, now that I’m making more of an effort with style- I’m currently coveting the Hunter boots. Does that make me shallow? Probably!
On the right I’m showing my original soccer mom outfit. Seriously- I wore something like this for 5 years. Yikes! It wasn’t until my friend Heidi was visiting from out of town and it was pouring rain- and I loaned her this blue thing. When I took one look at her I thought “Oh my gosh- is that what I look like?” This coat is much too large, the hood is goofy and the pink floral boots would be cute on a 6 year old.
I immediately headed straight to REI and picked up this fabulous and fitted North Face rain jacket. It is totally rainproof- and yes, it also has a hood, however I prefer to wear a cute hat. (See below). I then stopped at Freddies and got myself some cuter boots- black and white checks are always stylish. Underneath I’m wearing a lot of layers- 2 tank tops and a zip up hoodie in bright pink (team colors). Now, let’s just hope they win! Go Flyers!
