I Want These Boots…

Published in: Fashion, Just For Fun, MAC Makeup, Makeup


My justification for these Packable Tour Boots in Military Red (they’re $150, OMG!) by Hunter is that El Niño is coming/almost here, and I’m not about to mess with El Niño, man.


If The Niño is going to unleash his wrath on my feet and the surrounding area, I need to be prepared. Plus, hello! — they’re red, so they’ll match MAC Velvetease Lip Pencil in Anything Goes, my new favorite red lipstick.


Having red rain boots to match your red lipstick is of the utmost importance! I know you feel me on this!

Also, they’d match the little red lipstick kisses on this sweater I got from A Pea in the Pod last month (on sale, haaay). 🙂


I can’t seem to find it on their website anymore, but if you’re moved by it, it might be on the rack in their stores (here’s a link to their store locator). It’s warm, comfy, isn’t scratchy (because NOBODY has time for scratchy sweaters), and I’d still want to wear it if I wasn’t pregnant.

So, back to the boots… Get this! After lusting after them and dreaming about them (and holding on to a Nordstrom gift card for months), I finally decided I was going to pull the trigger online today, but when I checked the site, my size 7 was completely sold out.


Do any of you savvy shoppers have any tricks to track down Nordstrom products that are listed as sold out online? I was thinking about calling the store to ask them to check one of the computers to see if they have any size 7s that can be shipped to me? Does that ever work?

    Yes call the store – if you have the item number they can do a computer search and ship to you 🙂

    There is Hunter Boot Store in Woodbury commons outlets, NY
    good prices, I have got 2 pairs there. No idea if they ship but you could try calling them

  5. Stephanie says:

    Have you tried Zappos? I’m almost positive they carry Hunter boots.

      Hi Stephanie,

      I saw them on there! I was kinda hoping to use my Nordstrom gift card, but if I get desperate I might have to grab them from Zappos as a Christmas present for myself. 🙂

      Hope you have a wonderful weekend! What are your plans?

    Check out Costco website Karen, it carries Hunter boots but they are the original style thou. Most important they only cost $80.

  7. Adriana says:

    I have called Nordstrom’s customer service and they will track down any item, get you connected to any store in the country and help get the item shipped out to you. I’ve done this at least 4 times now and each time it’s been a breeze.

  8. Such a heartbreak. Fingers crossed you can track them down.
    My rain boots are leopard print.

    I love your sweater! Mostly that it matches the lipstick. So great! Good luck finding the boots!

    You look SO ADORABLE!!

    You look so cute in that sweater! My daughter Kim Cole, who also follows you, won a pair of Hunter Boots from Lord and Taylor. She wanted green but they were sold out in her size so she got gray instead. I would love the red too but I also wear a size 7 so I know they are probably out of stock!! Good luck in your hunt.

    check the nordies site again, they got mltred back in stock!

    Ohhh I hope I’m not too late responding! #1: hunters are worth every penny!! I live in mine! #2: absolutely Nordstrom will look in their computer system, locate the item from any store, and ship to you!

    Did you have any luck getting these beauties?!

  17. Rachel says:

    I’m boring. My Hunter boots are black lol. Got mine a few years ago at Piperlime when they were having their 30% off deal 😊
