I even have two pairs: ones without lining to wear earlier and later in the season as rainboots and ones with lining for the cold winter months. The latter is tucked safely away under my bed, anxious to be worn but for now I'm content with wearing my rain boots with some nice warm wool socks.
I love this look so much. The pearls and flannel give it such a nice preppy look, along with my new navy blue J. Crew vest that I'm obsessed with, paired with jeans make it a comfortable, casual fall look. I really like to dress up for class, it makes me feel so much more prepared to learn and be productive, and this outfit is so simple to put together that there is no reason people can't put in that extra ounce of effort to look put together for class. Hey, my mom always told me, "dress well, test well!"
