I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

New Rain Boots

For the longest time, I had a hideous pair of rain boots. But I didn’t care because…well, I don’t care about much other than staying dry when it’s raining. But Sean made such a big deal about the UGLY BOOTS. Every time it rained, he would avoid being seen in public with me because I’d be wearing “those things.” They weren’t even categorized as boots–he would call them things. Like, they weren’t even worthy of being dubbed as boots by the man who wears hideous flannel EVERY SINGLE DAY. God forbid I have one item that doesn’t meet his lumberjack fashion standards. It’s almost like someone wearing Crocs critisizing the Prada shoes you’re wearing. It’s like…”Um, seriously?!?” (and now I’ve angered the Croc wearers)

So, finally after a few years, I sprung for new boots. Sleek, black rain boots. And I have to say…I don’t feel frumpy and gross now when it’s raining. For about a week I sat, staring out the window hoping for rain so I could wear these boots. And then I got my wish. And I got it again. And then it rained every single day last week, including Saturday when I had to shoot a wedding. And all I can say, is THANK GOD I had some rain boots that I could wear for work with dress pants. In this ONE CASE, maybe…just maybe…Sean was right.

    To be honest, I sort of prefer the old ones. I suppose not everyone can pull off the faux-Japanese floral print, though.

  2. Colleen Says:

    The old ones are cute in a casual, playful, childish sort of way. But the black ones are sleek and practical and actually look like something an adult would wear.

  3. Merry Says:

    I liked them both.. but then again, I just wear my gym shoes when it’s raining, and half the time when it’s snowing unless it’s over a few feet… so obviously, I should not be trusted with fashion opinions :-)

  4. Colleen Says:

    Thanks, Merry! I think they’re both cute too…the one is just super funky and it was hard to match with stuff. The black ones are perfect for work. And my heels have definitely been collecting dust now that I don’t go to an office every day! I used to wear those suckers every day!

    The old boots aren’t my favorite. Looking at them gives me retina cancer.

  6. WordVixen Says:

    *lol* I actually really like the old ones! But then, I generally just wear my Crocs in rain or shine… (Don’t worry, I think they’re ugly too, but I’ve long since discovered that when it comes to my feet, comfort trumps fashion any day- my feet are shaped funny, and the Crocs and my rope sandals are the only shoes that actually fit right!)
