You know what they say… April showers bring May flowers. Since April is only a week away, it’s time to get prepared. There’s nothing worse than a good outfit being ruined by the weather. I am very passionate about this cause, so I say, no more outfits being ruined by ugly rain shoes in 2023! Your best defense against the elements is by adding a pair of chic rain boots to your closet — they’re simply a wardrobe must-have.
