After a lovely dry Summer, and a fairly mild Autumn, it is safe to say that the rain has made an unwelcome appearance, making the school run a rather wet and uncomfortable experience. I live in a semi-rural area, where drains are prone to overflow, pavements are often covered in deep puddles, and the grassy verges turn to mud very quickly. In these situations, fashion goes out of the window, and I turn to the wellies.
However, these days turning to Wellington’s doesn’t actually mean turning away from fashion and style. There are lots of really cute rain boots around, many of which can be found on a site called, funnily enough, Cute Rain Boots. This site has a large collection of wellies from brands such as Joules, Hunter, Crocs, and a range of new brands too. I was recently sent a gorgeous pair of Navy Spot Wellies from Joules, currently celebrating 25 years in business, and was really impressed with just how nice they were and how they were packaged.
I loved the pattern, it is almost 1950s in the polka dot design, and the navy and blue colour way is perfectly complimented by the red and white stripe of the lining. The colours have that distinctly British feel that Joules is famous for. These are style classics that will keep your feet dry and protected all Winter long, and will then look cool enough for those always muddy Summer festivals.
