Special thanks to Western Chief for inviting us to visit the tulip fields and for my guest to experience the Chooka Top Solid Rain Boot; all opinions are our own. (#tulipboots)

Spring officially starts here in Washington State when the tulips bloom in the Skagit Valley. This year they beckoned a few weeks early, and we happily accepted the invitation by Western Chief to visit them. Since the fields are often muddy thanks to our Seattle rain, they provided a pair of Chooka Boots to wear.

My lovely sister graciously offered to model her pick, the Chooka Top Solid Rain Boot in Teal. She chose them because of their adjustable calf, the 14″ height, fabric lining (with removable insole), and rubber outsole. She was cool and comfortable even though we were surprised by plenty of sunshine.

We also got a chance to check out the Spring and Fall 2016 Boot Trends. The colors for spring are all about the pastels. Sweet papaya, sunflower, mint, turquoise, tulip, and lavender are featured on the higher end Chooka Boot line. Their prints are vintage-style and more subdued. Their Vintage Tulip and Watercolor Poppy are among my favorites. For fall, expect rich jewel tones in red, purples, and rose-pinks.

The Chooka Top Solid Boots have been popular, but they’re being challenged for the top spot by the mid-height boots. These mid-calf boots are perfect for skirts and dresses, and they’re a bit more dressed up with their laser cut details, wedge heels, and pattern options. While they’re stylish, they’re also waterproof and let you take on any adventure fearlessly.

If you’d prefer something more traditional, the Chooka Duck Boots are a great option with a leather or canvas upper and rubber step-in.
