Gilt City Fashionista: Pretty and practical rain boots from dav

Growing up in New England’s bipolar weather, I’ve always been a big fan of boots. When you live in a climate that changes its mind this often, you’ve simply got to be smart about your footwear. Keeping that in mind, I’ve never been a big fan of shiny rain boots — sure, some of them are really cute, but I prefer a nice, sleek leather boot. That’s why I’ve fallen in love with dav!

The genius brand offers chic and practical rain-proof boots that keep you dry whether it’s raining, pouring or shining outside. So when Gilt City told me they were offering a fab deal for the brand this week, I was psyched to test it out.

These aren’t just any boots!

My shoe of choice? The Moto Tall Solid Black Boot. It’s sleek, stylish and oh so smart. I love the fact that you can go out on an unpredictable day where it might drizzle one moment and be sunny the next — and I had one of those just this week — and this shoe will go with the flow. The moto boot has a nice and firm sole so it gives you support but still looks like a pricey leather boot you’d wear on a sunnier day.
