Today is Day #3 of Five Days of Fabulous! Weren’t Days #1 and #2 fun? Shay and I are having a blast and the prizes are just going to continue getting better. The Day #2 winner is Emalie Jean! Congratulations, Emalie! You won a blardigan (or baby blardigan) and some UGG slippers for yourself AND 2 FRIENDS! See yesterday’s post for your choice of blardigans and slippers! Shay e-mailed you this morning, so please respond to her e-mail within 48 hours to claim your prize (or another winner will be chosen).
So, what does day #3 hold? Well, when Nordstrom reached out and asked me to talk about a practical gift to give and receive, I immediately thought of Hunter boots! And let’s be honest, I’m nothing if not practical. #thatsnotexactlytrue BUT HOW CUTE ARE THESE BOOTS!!!!! (And you can find our pajamas HERE.)
If you win, you will get a pair of Original Tall Matte or Original Tall High Gloss rain boots for yourself AND 4 FRIENDS! YES, FOUR FRIENDS!!! Or if you’d prefer, you can choose the original short rain boots, which are super cute too. Here are just some of your choices. Just click on what you are interested in!
So let’s talk about my Hunters for a minute. I got my first pair about 4 years ago. I got a tall light grey pair because when spending so much money on a pair of rain boots, I thought it was best to be practical and get a neutral color. So I coughed up the money and crossed my fingers I would actually wear them.
Bless my heart.
Well, that first year I wore the ever-lovin’ flip out of those boots. I’m not kidding when I say that a 10% chance of rain was enough for me to slap those puppies on. I wore them so much that I ended up asking for a red pair for Christmas that next year, and I got them from my in-laws! And you know what? I wear the red ones wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy more than I wear the grey ones. They are just so bright, cheery, and fun. I made them a Santa Alert several years ago, and that still stands. They are an extravagant gift to give…but they are just so dang fun. AND REMEMBER. THEY ARE PRACTICAL TOO. 🙂
I wore them on Monday with my new cream poncho (that sadly sold out almost immediately when I posted it the first time). But don’t worry, I have options for you in a minute! But look how much fun the red boots make the outfit!
Here are some poncho options for you since mine is sold out:
And here are some awesome jean choices, all UNDER $60!!!
I also wore them a couple of weeks ago during our short lived cold fr0nt with a fun combo I tend to wear a lot: a striped tee, a trusty military jacket, and my favorite infinity scarf. This jacket is long enough that it covers part of your hiney (which I know a lot of you like). Not my hiney…the fact that your hiney would be covered. LAUGHING SO HARD. Anyhoo. If you get the jacket, be sure to size down 1 size. I’m wearing an x-small, and I sometimes even have to size up in jackets (to a medium). So yes, for sure size down.

And just for fun, here are a handful of other looks with my Hunters over the last couple of years. They make every outfit cuter! Just a black tunic tee and jeans, BUT DARLING BECAUSE OF THE HUNTERS!
And three other outfits here. You know you want the boots. 😉
And just fyi, since we are talking FUNCTIONAL GIFTS, I thought I would give you a couple of options for your kiddos. I know that my little guy is getting THESE Under Armour boxers in his stocking, because he loves them but they are so dang expensive! Practical gift for the win! You can of course also get Hunter boots for your kids. Last year Carter actually got THESE camo bogs for Christmas! I also highly recommend Native shoes for your young boys and girls. I know there are lots of kids out there that pretty much refuse to wear shoes if they aren’t Natives!
Some practical gift ideas for your hubby tomorrow, as well as some Santa Alerts for us girls!
