which one are you?

lets talk functional boots..

the llbean boot is making a major comeback..and i gotta say i am diggin it..the lace up + ruggedness with tight jeans..plus some of these are lined with sheepskin for coziness! my brother and all his "hot" prepsters friends used to wear these, i used to swoon..
now they have left prepster and are more 'old school vintage..'

or do you go for the hunter wellies...loving the brits these days..i do love a rugged rain boot..and kate rocks them at all the festivals...plus you can just hose them down..

so tell me do you go american with the llbean boot or british with the hunter wellies..?
fill me in ..i am needing to make a decision!

I'm loving the LLBeans, EVERYONE has the hunters, so it would be fun to change it up! great post btw.

I love LL Bean but I love my Hunter wellies just a bit more. They are all-seasons and I've done everything in them from wearing them to a muddy concert to pressure washing the driveway. If they are that functional I don't care if they are trendy at the moment or not. Plus, they come in fun colors!

I swear by my Hunter wellies for rainy Pennsylvania weather. I don't have the L.L. Bean boots but my Sorel boots do the trick for me come winter!

Loving both. Really. But probably more of a Hunter girl myself. Though the rain boots I have are J.Crew.

ashley schmutz said...

go for the llbean! you'll be much more original than you would be with the hunters. PLUS, lace ups? SO CUTE!

Love both...my only problem with the ll beans...they are a little clunky...almost too much for running around! However either would look fabulous with a rickshaw kurta and jeans!
I am sporting my rs kurta today with bf jeans, a sweater vest and desert boot wedges...I am feeling v. put together!!!

firts: your blog is beautiful now!

and re the boots. i would need both. the hunters for rainy summer walks {although I prefer the tretorn wellies} and the LLBeans for the cold winter months.

have a nice day!

rikshaw design said...

yeah KIT! lllove mixing the kurta with a sweater vest!..gosh this debate has me pretty baffled..still unsure..i was for sure thinking wellies, now with teh cozy lace up look of llbean i feel like i may have ot go that route..although..we don't have snow here?

Starfish & Sundresses said...

I grew up in MA so I'm no stranger to Bean boots but I do have a pair of navy hunters too. Gotta switch it up! xo

Do I have to choose? Love them both!!

Hunter Wellies all the way! I love mine. (Then again, I'm married to a Brit.)

EMILY said...

Oh these are both one in the same! I wear my bean boots in the snow with big wool socks and I wear my hunters in the rain or just for puddle jumping!

dz_g said...

i like both, but i just can't imagine myself wearing the ll bean boots... it's rainy in seattle, so the hunter boots are definitely more appropriate!

ashley said...

realized today how badly I need a functional pair of boots! I photographed a wedding on this super rainy day and was tromping through giant puddles in riding boots which I now know are not waterproof. it took my little toes 2 hours to defrost after I got home and finally ripped them off. I would vote for the hunters, and thinking I need to invest in a pair. stat.

Natasha said...

HUNTER BOOT for sure!!

Hands down the LLBean hunter boot. Just yesterday I sent an email of the shearling ones from their site to my husband as a "hint, hint;)"

Shaya said...

Oh my. Let me gather myself - the thoughts of all those cute college boys in duck boots and barn jackets has me a little flustered. I LOVED that look. And still do.
Tired of Wellies - bring on the duck boots!

Missy said...

Wellies! Then purchase the fleece inserts for extra warmth. Mix and match colors. Very fun!

rustic rooster interiors said...

i'm going to have to go with Hunter Wellies!

L.L. Bean 100% I think the Hunter trend is maxed out. Now they just to need to bring back the barn jackets!

bink and boo said...

I love them both, but I lean more towards L.L. Bean. I must say, the new Tivoli collection from Sorel has me itching to buy a pair of serious winter boots.

The Zhush said...

Not to confuse the issue, but Ugg also does an adorable take on the first boot. Oh, and I just read the comment above, the Sorel's are great too! Since I trek from Vt. to NY all winter...I tend to have a pair of each. But I would happily trade all my winter muck boots for a year in California! :)

Wow, this is a tough one. I love the Hunter wellies and I think they are more my style but as Heather said in the beginning of the comments Hunters are everywher these days so LL Bean would be something different and more unique.

I love this series by the way - great idea!

Stop by and check my new blog if you have a chance. Thank you!
