One of my favorite times of year to live in Washington State is Spring! The sun begins to appear after days of gray and rain, and with that the gorgeous blooms of flowers! Each Spring the Skagit Valley becomes a Pacific Northwest destination-must, as thousands flock to see the fields upon fields of tulips in every color imaginable. This year I joined Chooka and Western Chief Rain Boot brands of Washington Shoe Company on a Tulip Tour for a perfect Spring Saturday in Skagit Valley to celebrate their 125 year anniversary in the PNW!
Alongside other fashion and lifestyle Seattle bloggers, we tromped through the blooming tulip fields in our Chooka and Western Chief rain boots and enjoyed a day of glorious sunshine in the valley. For the day, I chose the Chooka Top Solid Mid Rain Boot in Black Matte and paired the boots (perfect for the mud!) with a Who What Wear x Target Long Sleeve Romper Dress, Gibson Sunglasses (similar) from Moorea Seal and my Longchamp Le Pliage small handbag, to hold the day's essentials.
I am seriously in love with these Chooka Boots. I have another pair of rain boots that hit almost to my knee, and as someone who is petite at 5"4' on a good day, they have always been more of a challenge to walk in than a benefit to avoid/splash through the mud puddles. However, these mid height boots by Chooka are oh so comfortable, not to clunky for us petites, waterproof (essential!) and so chic (I even spotted them in the April Seattle Magazine!). And they are also just perfect for a summer music festival, hello Sasquatch, Outside Lands and Capitol Hill Block Party!
The Top Solid from Chooka is also available in a tall height, if preferred, as well as numerous patterns and colors, including the so on-trend florals for Spring! Chic booties and the oh-so-popular duck booties are also available. With most (if not all) boots and booties at a price point under $100, Chooka boots are fashionable, functional, and affordable! Three key elements for a perfect closet purchase! I'm already eyeing both the Chooka V-Gore Wedge Bootie and Chooka Seattle Skyline Rain Boot!
Following our visit to the tulip fields, we enjoyed a lovely lunch at Tulip Valley Vineyard-Orchard. I sipped rose, which was just right on a bright sunshine day, and enjoyed conversation with other Bloggers. It was the perfect day and I already can't wait to head back to the Skagit Valley Tulip Fields next year!
