Dressing up my Hunter Heeled Chelsea Rain Boots
I’m pretty sure Autumn is very much on its way now as I’m spotting leaves falling off the trees everywhere I go, as well as conkers dropping from the trees already! So what do I do when Autumn comes around? I break out my jeans and blazers and I love to wear new wellies! You probably know by now that I like to have a smart dress sense, so I like the idea of being able to dress my wellies up.
I was able to do that with my new Hunter Heeled Chelsea Boots as they have a touch of glamour to them which is perfect for the looks I like to go for. I’m very much used to my tall, flat Hunter wellies that I wear all the time, so finding a heeled pair that was ankle length was amazing! I get that they might not be the most practical, but for walking around town and wanting to look dressy while keeping your feet dry, they are ideal! I chose the matte black option too as it’s the most versatile and easy to wear with everything.
I wanted to go for an all black look so the Hunter boots would blend in nicely, so I paired Hunter boots with my James Jeans Twiggy Dancer Jeans in Black Flex Distressed to create the illusion of longer legs. The heel on these Chelsea boots is quite high, but with the thick platform at the front, I wouldn’t say the steepness of the boot is much more than 2 inches, so they are very easy to wear. I went for something a little more classy on top, choosing my ASOS Cami Top and then layering my Zara blazer (similar here) over the top to give it some structure.
It wouldn’t be one of my outfits though if I didn’t have some colour somewhere, so of course I went with my amazing rainbow umbrella (buy it here) to brighten it all up. I love the black contrast of the outfit against the pop of the intense rainbow shades. It really livens everything up! The rain was off and on when we shot these photos, but the boots are definitely waterproof in case any of you are wondering. How many of you remember this umbrella from my old fashion blog banner? And of course, please do let me know what you think of this look!
