My best friend Mandy and I live in very different climates these days - Mandy is in the mountains of Nevada and I am in my beloved swamps of Houston (yes her summer is much better than mine but I do save on not buying moisturizer). But we both of have some serious weather with which we contend throughout the seasons. She has snowstorms and ice; I have hurricanes and tropical storms. We want to give our best tips to stay stylish, dry and safe through any weather!
One of my favorite finds has been by Ellsworth and Ivey. If you don't know them I promise you will see me where a ton of their pieces this fall/winter. They specialize in capes and their all weather cape in a waxed cotton has to be one of my favorites. It really works during any snow or rain and does not look like a huge rain jacket when its not raining - just a great fashionable cape. Plus you can see the great plaid lining in the above picture. And you can fit a purse neatly underneath the cape and voila - a purse protector in bad weather!
Ellsworth and Ivey also has a summer/spring version of the cotton cape that I link here and may be good if you live in a place like Houston where we rarely get super cold weather but still need to stay dry. You can use the code POLISHEDPROFESSIONALS for 20% off your order!
Now to the shoes! Oh my gosh have galoshes come so far since Mandy I were kids. You can actually make a fashion statement in these and be safe in thunderstorms, snow, and ice.
Here are our favorite picks!
Mandy swears by the below pictured wedge Sorel boots. She states, "Oh Sorel, how I love thee! Now that I live in a region with snow and ice, I get to buy...boots! I quickly learned cute boots must be functional cause ICE. These new Sorel Lea wedges are amazingly comfy and stable. Check out that sole. I kinda want them in every color cause they make this 5'2" gal taller with no wobbling around."
If you want to add some more heel height to your Sorels - they also make the below moto heeled stunners. Talk about rocker babe! We found them on super sale here - just $67 and available in three colors!
We also had to give more than honorable mention to these super cute Sam Edelmen galoshes that we found here - Just $69 and available in leopard print and snakeskin as shown below and all black.
Now stay dry and stylish out there!
