PUDDLE JUMPERS

Winter in the West Coast typically means rain, rain, and more rain.

Look at the little kids in wellies with matching raincoats.  Adults who refuse to be outdone can also splash around.  The classic standard of the well-bred puddle jumper has always been the Hunter Wellington boot.  For those who want added panache, Hunter has the Jimmy Choo collaboration boot in croco-embossed rubber!

Another innovation in rain/snow style last year was Tommy Hilfiger's high-heeled duck boots.  These look great with knit socks slouching over them.  Hilfiger also made over-the-knee versions (which are over-the-top, unless you are in flood zones).

For the rest of us who don't want to spend much on rubber gear, you can score some fun printed alternatives from eBay, like this leopard spot wedge heeled rain boot.

Interestingly, out of all these options, the one that gets the Kid Nod of Approval are the whimsical eBay finds!
