I am on a one-woman mission to enlighten you all to the merits of Crocs rain boots. Yeah, yeah I know there are fancy "designer" ones that people feel the need to shell out $100+ for- however, in my opinion, these whimsically colorful and infinitely comfortable boots are the perfect penicillin for a rainy day. Need proof? Just look at how ridiculously happy I am splashing around, sopping wet, in mine.
If you happen to fall in love with them along the way, you can pick up a pair on Joyus until January 6, specially priced at $40 for adults and $30 for kids. You can use that money you saved by not buying a fancy pair to treat yourself to a blowout- my other favorite antidote to a grey day.
