Fashion Friday: Down Here we Call 'em Shrimp Boots

Down here on the Gulf, our lives are slowly returning to normal after Hurricane Isaac blew through New Orleans, knocking out power, downing 200 year-old oak trees and flooding entire neighborhoods.  As a journalist, I was tasked with working 12-15 hour days, sleeping at the television station and reporting live in torrential rain and hurricane force winds.  It was both an exciting and exhausting week.

Throughout Hurricane Isaac, I donned my classic black Hunter wellies or as they call 'em down in these parts: shrimp boots.  As we build our fall wardrobes, here are some of my favorite rain boots inspired by the storm.
