Pink Maniera Rainboots & Anne Koplik Religious Necklaces

When caught in a storm, it’s nice to be reminded there’s a God.

(In real life the color of these boots is a bit lighter looking with some lavender understone.)

These pink boots are made in Europe by a company called Maniera.

What’s nice about these boots is that they have soles with very good traction and they’re made of natural rubber.  There are a number of rainboots made by good brands whose traction can wear out quite quickly and then the boots become rather unsafe when sidewalks are icey.
