Rain, rain, go away...
As what I have mentioned before, I hate rain. I am a commuter (and proud of it!) and walking in the rain is such a hassle. Imagine getting soaked up and all. Despite having the biggest umbrella in town, drops of water in different sizes get in the way to irritate me the more.
Just two days ago, few meters from Trinoma where I would alight, heavy rain fell just in time! Talk about perfect timing, huh? There was no warning at all--no drizzle, no dark clouds. It just fell because it wanted to, and people from all over ran in all direction to find just enough size of a roof to shield them from the rain. I, on the other hand, had no choice but to go down from the FX taxi because Trinoma was in front of me already. I was complete with my battle gear anyways--umbrella for my head and a tailored coat to cover my arms. Perfect! So I confidently walked in the rain despite it being quite heavy, until I looked down. Oh, no!! My shoes!!
Yep, I was wearing the wrong kind of shoes that day. Luckily, there was no flood, though the water was slowly rising for an inch or two. After around one hundred and fifty steps, my shoes were already wet. Good thing water was not able to find its way inside so my feet remained dry and untouched. It was just my poor pair!! The material is not suitable for the rain and now I wonder if I can still use it ;(
Having that experience, I blamed myself for not buying shoes that are suitable for rainy days. There are lovely pairs out there, pretty and fab ones, yet tough and perfect enough to experience some splash from the unfriendly rain. These are all water resistant, and very, very, very pretty!! They are made of rubber and plastic that makes wiping the water uber easy. And they can go along with whatever outfit I fancy. There's a pair that matches my skirt, my shorts, my skinny, my jeggings... and they are really very pretty!! And I am just glad to present them.... and oh, by the way, did I mention already that they are just so pretty?!!
