Seeing the puddles of rainwater building up in massive lake-like formations outside my window at work, I decided when it was time to go home that I had no other option than to get some plastic bags and rubber bands and construct some makeshift galoshes. Just call me MacGyver!
My husband and I often commute together to work and when he came to pick me up he was laughing as I came plodding down the street in my "invention". But hey, these bags saved my boots from the rain which was worth the price of a little bit of humiliation. My boots were as dry as a bone, so I can't complain.
On a side note, the fair isle sweater I am wearing today is from H&M and it was so comfy and cozy on a rainy day like today. I love the green color scheme of the sweater and thought it would be perfect for a little casual holiday cheer. It even comes with a neat-o gift tag attached in anticipation of it being a holiday gift. Personally, I would fill out the gift card as followed: To: Me, From: Me.
