Twinsies and Hunter Kids Rain Boots

My first daughter is 8 and I love the mother-daughter bond at this stage. I am sure the teenage years can be challenging but I look forward to having her as my best friend for the rest of my life. One day, I hope she'll ask me to help her picking out a prom dress, a wedding dress or just simply sharing life experiences with each other. Speaking of prom dresses, girls are so fun to shop for. Once in a while, I caught her sneaking into my closet. I immersed myself in the greatest joy of watching my own daughter going through my clothes. She was interested in a pair of rain boots last year. Since they are my winter staples, I thought it's time for her very first wellies =)

On me: J.Brand jeans | Hunter original gloss boots | Similar sweater (under $30) | Sunglasses | Lipstick
On her: J.Crew jacket | Hunter boots | Hunter socks | The North Face gloves

I've had these boots for almost 2 years now and I absolutely love them. They are the best for wet rain, slushy snow days. One thing to keep in mind that Hunter boots aren't insulated. If you're looking for something to keep your feet warm, definitely need to add these fleece socks. The kid version has two reflective patches on the back of each boot which add that little bit of safety when out and about. My daughter is currently wearing a size US 1 in shoes. I got these in a size UK 13 and they seem to fit her well with a little room to spare for thicker socks.

I personally think the price tag for a pair of Hunter wellies is worth it. They are available in an array of darling colors (red, purple, blue, grey, berry, black, green, white and deep red). They are a bit of a fashion statement as well as being totally practical. If you looking for outdoor gear, Surfdome carries a huge selection of over 900 popular lifestyle brands. There is certainly something for everyone. It took 7 days for my order to arrive from the UK which was pretty reasonable. They're running a 20% off promotion this weekend (use code XMS20). You now can score these Hunter boots for your little ones for under $50.



  1. You both look lovely in the Hunter boots - love the bright red!

  2. How time flies -- can't believe C is 8 already! It's so cute that you both chose red wellies. You know, as soon as your daughters can fit into your clothes/shoes, I bet some may be "borrowed" and never returned ;)

  3. ahhh i love this!! the mommy and daughter red hunter wellies are so cute!!! you look so glam fabulous with that fuchsia purple lip color love it!

  4. ADORABLE! I plan on getting baby girl her own pair of hunters too! :)

  6. So adorable! Dying from the cuteness! I love it! And now I want new rain boots!

  7. Aw! Your girl looks so cute! You guys seem to have a nice bond...the teen years should be fine. :)

    Love the choice of red for the boots.

  8. Think positive, but also keep your logic intact and know that your car might still break down, your kid might not make the soccer team, you might lose your car keys or stub your toe, but HOW you REACT will make all the difference in the world.
