I can’t wait for it to rain. Normally, I long for warm weather and sunshine everyday (nod to Southern California), but Rockport, the classic New England shoe company, has these sleek, gorgeous Lorraine Rain Boots with a wedge heel that are just aching for a puddle stomp.
Fortunately, Lorraine boots are stylish enough to wear everyday in any weather. The just-below-the-knee-high boots are made of waterproof material that looks like shiny patent leather, and the heel has just enough lift that you can wear the boots all day long.
Rockport’s Lorriane Rain Boots are the ultimate “playground chic” footwear. You can look stylish and chase the kids around without breaking your ankle or losing a heel in the mud.
These boots are a great gift idea for moms in need a boot makeover this season. They sell for $100, but shop around for better deals at Zappos or other online retail outlets.
Lorriane boots are available in all sorts of fabulous colors, including chrome metallic, pink, navy and coral, which looks more like sassy tangerine. The best seller is the black option (see photos).
Rockport also makes quilted lace up and shorter just-above the-ankle versions of the Lorraine boot.
For a classic dress up boot (not for chasing kids in the snow), check out Rockport’s black suede Janae Bootie. Go to Rockport.com.

There are no chemical ingredients and you get a healthy glow on your skin without baking for hours in the sun. And, the smell is great. Most tanning lotions have a weird smell, but this one is nice. Remember, you still need to wear sunscreen when you self tan.
Joanna also suggests Sugar Rose Lip Gloss with SPF 15 from Fresh (at Sephora), which is great for spring and summer lips. The gloss is a “tint,” so it goes on sheer unlike a matte or frost lipstick. You can apply the gloss over a matte color to tone it down or wear it alone to add a simple shine to your lips. The product also comes in Plum.
2. I have some MAJOR fashion news that is going to make every mom on the planet happy:
Low rise jeans are out! High rise jeans are back in style, BUT with a wide leg AND a dramatic flair.
My fashion consultant, Katherine Venzke, who is the owner of Helena’s, a clothing boutique in Arlington has confirmed that moms can now sit down on the floor at the library and read a book to their child without showing their behind!
This style makes your legs look longer and holds your tummy in, which most moms need after popping out a few kids. Skinny jeans are still popular, but the wide leg with a high waist is where it’s at right now.
For South Shore moms: Boutiques are a great place to shop for unique cloths, and if you can’t get to Helena’s in Arlington from the South Shore, check out Bling Boutique in Braintree, which also carries wide leg high waisted jeans.
You can always go to Macy’s, Urban Outfitters or other department stores to get the look. Below are Joe’s High-Waist, Wide Leg jeans at Sax Fifth Avenue.
