Style Mondays: Chooka Rain Duck Rain Skimmer Shoes

IMG_0797As much as I’m all about channeling my inner Paddington Bear as soon as it’s raining out, carrying on in large rubber boots all day is sometimes a challenge; especially if I have an end of the evening event to dash off too. Having a pair of rain shoes as apposed to only boots is a definite necessity in my wardrobe. And my new Chooka Duck Rain Skimmer ($65) definitely fit the bill.   IMG_0805{Shoes c/o Chooka Duck Skimmer ($65) |Top c/o  Paige Denim Kadie Shirt/Armour Plaid ($168) | Pants: c/0 JBrand 485 Lacquered Super Skinny ($218) | Rain coat: vintage Burberry | Vintage whistle Necklace: Brooklyn Charm}IMG_0825IMG_0798IMG_0800

Not only are they lightweight and fun to wear around, but also make for great commuting shoes. It’s an easy swap out for heels when you need to get a little more glam as the day goes on. Just tuck them away in your purse (don’t forget a plastic bag), and do a quick switch-a-roo before hitting that business lunch or holiday party. It’s a much better alternative then ruining your leather booties. Otherwise, if I’m laying low on a rainy day, I’m all about dressing comfortably as seen above.
