A few of my favourite things... III


The weather in London has been miserable, rain, rain, rain and yet more rain. Plus the wind and the general greyness, it's enough to get one down. So I have been utterly grateful for the next in my series of favourite things, my Hunter welly boots. These are the things of magic, they are sturdy, fun and most importantly keep my feet warm and dry.
It's one of those things I've always hated, wet feet, especially wet feet in nice shoes, which are then wet feet in nice ruined shoes. So having wellies has become an essential for me. Plus it means I can behave like a four year old and jump in puddles with glee.
So for those city dwellers who are fed up of wet feet, go get some Hunters! And even if they seem a little pricey they are the best, my last pair broke within about three months much to my upset and so from now on I will be tried and tested!
I am only slightly upset that I went for plain old Aubergine and not something a little jazzier. Maybe for the next pair I can branch out :)

I've got a navy blue pair I've had for over 10 years and they still look like new. I'll be wearing mine if it carries on much longer.

personally i've been on the lookout for everyday boots that are also waterproof, but it's been a struggle!

@Make Do Style - I hope mine last that long!

@everybodysaysdont - Me too :) They're one of those things which makes me happy

@Julia - I tried and tried and failed so gave up. But if you find some let me know. Plus the right wellies are as good, almost...

I think I may have to invest in a pretty delicious pair! I am getting tired of having wet toes!

I need some nice rain boots for winter next year. I want ones with pictures on them though :)

Hilarious, I remember wearing wellies as a kid and hating it. I used to take them off when I thought Mum wasn't looking and tried to hide them in the bushes so I didn't have to be embarrassed about wearing them to school. Funny how as you get older fashion changes!! Plus I'm laughing coz the chances of needing wellies to walk to work here at pretty slim. But I'd like a pair if I lived at home :)

Marie, I totally forgot I need to wear mine! I've been looking for leather boots for winter, but these are so necessary as well (esp. this week, boo on rain!)

Teresa said...

Agreed. I love my pink Hunters!

I've always wanted a pair of Wellies!!! They envoke the English countryside look, something that is kind of foreign here in Texas!! I'm afraid I'd only wear them MAYBE 5 to 10 times a year. And that would be kind of stretching it...
