Yes, you can be chic with the chicks (ouch, sorry!!) We all need a pair or two of muck/mud boots. Right now, colorful rubber boots are in. Last weekend, I was in Cambridge, MA (the hometown of Harvard University), which not only believes that it is the hub of the universe, but also the center of hip. One of the trendy shoe shops in the Square had a display of rubber boots right in the window. I’m probably the only buyer of these polka-dot beauties that’s actually going to wear it somewhere other than walking on pavement. My hens, my ever-appreciative audience, think that they look great!
