A Love Letter To My Hunter Wellies

Do you remember when I wrote an edition of my 'Lust List' posts about which of this seasons wellington boots from Spartoo (a pretty awesome shoe site) I would quite like to have to wear in the city? I thought I'd put a little post together to introduce you to the pair I wear in the country, and that I would have been lost without ever since I left London for the festive period.

I got these pretty pink Hunter wellingtons totally by accident. There was snow everywhere, and my boarding school involved lots of walking around on very slippery paths. My brand new Mac Book Pro fell victim when I slipped over on an unsalted path and it smashed inside my bag. As everyone in the city was dashing to buy wellies and snow boots, so when I got to buy mine the only colour of Hunters left in my size were these powder pink versions. I was not entirely happy about this at the time, I had wanted navy to go with my all black school uniform, but they have now really grown on me and I would not have them any other colour!

I don't take the effort to clean mine as I love them all muddy and worn like this. Do you take the effort to clean off your boots, or do you let them get all nice and muddy like mine?

  3. I felt very bitter about spending £70 on ugly snow shoes when it unexpectedly snowed while I was at work and wearing ballerina pumps...so I'm very jealous of your pink wellies! I just stumbled across your blog and I love it - you have a new follower :D

    Happy New Year!

  4. These are really cute! When I was little I loved wearing rainboots but they're not really necessary where I live.

  6. I do need some Hunters in my life, but not sure I could handle pink. Glad you like them though!

  7. i really must buy some hunters at some point. i always make a mental note to get some but for some reason i never have. the pink looks lovely, i understand your initial reservations but they are so much cooler than the darker coloured ones xx

  9. Hunters are really fantastic, I where mine a lot and they are so comfy to walk in.

  10. I must say you'd look quite cool wearing your School Uniform black Tights and pink Wellingtons, a lot of the Girls at my school wear brightly coloured Wellingtons with their Tights when the occasion demands, my Wellingtons are glossy black Hunters and I wear them a lot regardless of the weather.
