Taking care of some of the puddles in the road...


"A man gazing on the stars is proverbially at the mercy of the puddles in the road"
 - Alexander Smith



Don't look at puddles as a negative! Buy a pair of gumboots, channel your inner child and splash your way forwards!
Of course (typical Auckland) the day I chose to wear them it was sunny by the afternoon.
 But I made the most of those puddles while they were still there!

When I was on my gumboot mission I thought I might end up with something very plain cliche New Zealand black gumboots 
(Footrot Flats minus the mud), but I was surprised to find this polka dot pair at the Warehouse (similar to Walmart).







gumboots - The Warehouse
scarf - I knitted
dress - Glassons
jacket - Just Jeans
(can you spot the lego watch)



For now they sit in my awaiting the next rainy day in Auckland. 
After being used many days through snow slush puddles they're probably feeling a bit neglected!
