Thrifty & Chic: Green Rain Boots


Penelope is going to grow up to be an amazing thrift shopper. I just know it!

Back in April (Penelope’s birthday, in fact) we were running some errands when I randomly decided to pop into D.I. to look for some sweet deals. I passed by the kid’s shoe section & Penelope picked snagged a pair of rain boots that I (surprisingly) didn’t notice.

She promptly kicked off her shoes & threw the boots on. At first I wasn’t too thrilled about these mysterious rain boots, but Penelope wasn’t going to take them off, so I bought them. I’d much rather spend $1 on a pair of boots than deal with a screaming 2 year old. Just trying to keep the peace.

As my sister pointed out to us after a night of babysitting, Penelope’s favorite cartoon character, Kipper, sports the same green rain boots in a rainy day episode. Aw! How sweet. Penelope & Kipper are all matchy-matchy!

Penelope would wear her boots everyday if I let her and she gets compliments on her sweet boots everywhere we go. I love that she’s gotten so much use out of a measly little dollar.

      I think they’re super cute! She’s following her mother’s foot steps.

    2. I had to comment on this and share -I bought my little guy a pair of rain boots that he wore for about 2-3 months solid. They were so fun! I think these two could be a match made in heaven! :)

      I absolutely love your site! You are crazy talented!

      last year I got a pair of rainboots brand new at goodwill for $2. The same pair were sitting on the shelf at target(my fave dept store Since I was In The 6th Grade) for $17. Score!

    5. Adorable! Little kids in rain boots are the best.

      Your daughter is, seriously, one of the best dressed kids I’ve ever seen! And totally darling in her green boots.
      But here is my real question: Where did you get that awesome yellow-striped umbrella?? I love it!

      That is so sweet. And yes, Kipper does have green boots! He’s my son’s favorite cartoon character too.

      There is nothing like a great pair of green boots.

      One of my favorite things to do with my mom is thrift shopping…she is the thrifting queen & she started teaching me her treasure finding ways as soon as I could walk. I love that you are sharing that with Penelope…she will have lots of great memories. Her green boots are precious!!!
