New Hunter Tour Rain-Boot

One of my goals for 2014 was to get a good camera and learn how to use it. I ended up getting a Nikon 1 J3 and I definitely did not intend to get it this soon but it was on sale for almost half off and they're being discontinued so I was enticed by the deal... I got it because I liked the portability and customizability of it. I originally intended to get a DSLR but instead got a CSC (compact system camera), which is basically a smaller camera without a mirror and with interchangeable lenses. 
It has most of the DSLR functions and when I do step up to a bigger camera I feel like I will still be able to get use out of this one for on-the-go photos since produces DSLR-like quality images. 

I'm super excited to start learning all about it and getting more into photography (should help with architecture too!). Hope you enjoy my Outfit of the Day 2.0 posts! :) (NO MORE MIRROR! WOO!)

Boots: Hunter Original Packable Tour Rain Boots \\ Jeans: Old \\ Shirt: J.Crew Factory \\ Vest: Old Navy \\ Pearls: Inherited \\ Sunglasses: Large Ray-Ban Aviators \\ Watch: Michael Kors

I bought my boots a while ago, but this is the first time I've actually gotten to wear them!! It didn't even rain, but there was a small chance so I jumped at the opportunity...

I love them! I got the Hunter Packable Tour boots from Piperlime with a few Christmas gift cards and they ARE SO COMFY! I wasn't going to get the packable ones because I don't go on a ton of trips where I need rain boots but they were the only style with yellow which is what I wanted. I'm so glad I got them though, because the rubber is thinner they aren't so stiff...and I feel like thinner rain boots means better to wear throughout the spring and summer, especially in Louisiana!

Did you get anything special with your holiday money? 


  1. Beautiful outfit! I saw that vest at old navy the other day, unfortunately it wasn't in my size. That outfit is so cute, I love those hunter boots, they ad so much color to your outfit. And beautiful quality of the camera!


  2. I wear my Hunters ALL the time!

    I haven't spent any of my Christmas money yet, but I did get myself a Christmas present before Christmas - the Dooney & Bourke 'Florentine' Vachetta Leather Satchel, love!

    1. oooh...I love that bag! What a great investment! :)

  3. I definitely think buying a nice camera is a good investment. Those boots look so cute on you!

  4. The boots are so cute! I love the color you picked them out in also and major pluses since very few people have that color!

  5. I wear my hunter boots an embarrassing amount! Since I wear them so much I am actually planning on buying another pair :).

    1. thats awesome! I don't think it's rainy enough where I live to justify ANOTHER pair of rain boots (I have a pair of tartan Ralph Lauren ones) but I also love the hot pink, bright red, and black Hunters. :)

  6. Love your outfit and you look like a model! great photography (:
