Those of you who live here in England are probably aware that the weather has been absolutely awful, it’s been pouring with rain most days and really windy. Usually this upsets me a lot as I can’t wear the outfits that I want to, but lately I have kind of been excited by it. It means that I get to wear my wellies and don’t have to worry about ruining my shoes. I got these new Hunter Short Boot Wellies in Dark Ruby Gloss (similar here) a couple of weeks ago after seeing them online. As you know I have the Tall Navy Gloss Hunter Wellies already, but since a lot of my clothes are burgundy, I wanted a pair to tie in with that colour. I was toying with the idea of getting the taller boots, but I thought having a shorter pair would be a good choice so that I have one of each, plus they end up showing more of my jeans and not being too overwhelming. The colour of these is amazing, it’s like a dark burgundy, but with purple in it, so it’s a beautiful rich shade. I definitely recommend this colour if you are looking into buying a pair of Hunter rain boots! If anyone is wondering about sizing, I’m usually a size UK 6 in most shoes and boots and I take a 6 in my Hunter wellies, but I can’t wear them with socks because they end up being too tight. If you are between sizes, I definitely recommend taking the larger of the two sizes.
I paired my Dark Ruby Gloss Wellies with my trusty AG Adriano Goldschmied The Legging Jeans in 12 Years Dwight. I thought the wash on these jeans was a great contrast against the burgundy as the blue really makes it pop, not to mention these are one of my favourite jeans that I own, they are so comfortable and soft! I chose to wear my Topshop Burgundy Gilet over the top of a H&M Grey Cardigan for warmth. The gilet actually comes with a grey knitted hood attached to it, so it works best when I wear a grey cardigan or jumper underneath so the colours match. Luckily, the burgundy shade of this gilet was actually pretty close to the shade of my wellies, so it ended up being a great match! It was so windy and wet on this day though, I took these photos last Sunday just before the crazy storm came in, so I was avoiding the rain showers and trying to keep my hair under control for the photos, ha ha. My boyfriend is definitely a trooper, having to put up with taking my photos in all sorts of conditions! Anyway, what do you think of the outfit? Comment and let me know like always!
