Winter Walks In Black Hunter Wellies


(Jeans – Exact, Gilet – Similar, Hoody – Similar, Wellies – Exact, Socks – Exact, Hat – Similar)

This is the outfit that I wore on Sunday when I was out with my boyfriend for a walk. The weather wasn’t so good, naturally, and it was quite muddy in some areas, so we didn’t really stay out for a long time. I was wearing my James Jeans Couture Skinny Jeans in Black (yes, I own these in numerous washes!) which I paired with my Topshop Burgundy Gilet. I layered that over a t-shirt and a warm grey hoody from Topshop. For my footwear, I wore my new Hunter Original Tall Wellies in Black which I bought in a size up to accommodate warm socks! I recently got a pair of the Hunter socks in black and in dark ruby, so I can wear them with a variety of different outfits. Since it’s been so windy, I decided to put my hair in a braid and then put my burgundy cable knit hat from Topshop on top, to keep my head warm and stop my hair from straying everywhere and getting knotty. There’s nothing worse for me than my hair flying in my face and tangling up. What do you think of this casual outfit? Comment and let me know!

    You got the original talls and welly socks!! Good job Lorna, you look amazing. I cant even put it into words how good you look.

    • January 31, 2014 / 3:55 pm

      Yeah! I got those ones, I didn’t want the gloss for black!

    • January 31, 2014 / 3:56 pm

      Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

      The socks feel a lot like fleece, they aren’t fitted though, they are quite baggy, but warm and soft! I’ve seen the Nightfall ones, but I just can’t get used to the pattern, I don’t like it very much lol.

    you look cozy

    • January 31, 2014 / 4:41 pm

      Thank you Amy!

  3. January 31, 2014 / 4:21 pm

    Burgundy suit you so much! Love that outfit.

    • January 31, 2014 / 4:41 pm

      Thanks Miho!

    • January 31, 2014 / 4:43 pm

      Oh you have the same ones as me! Those are cool!

    Yeah thats why i was so excited you got a pair we match in finally! Mine are the adjustable ones but they are almost completely identical!

    • January 31, 2014 / 4:55 pm

      Yeah, the adjustable ones don’t fit me as I have really tiny calves, these ones are baggy, ha ha! But yep! Wellies twins!

    Yay lol wellies twins i like that. I would say the adjustables are more for men like me with bigger calves where as the regulars are for dainty people. Whatcha think of the rest of my outfit? Thank you for taking the time to look

    • January 31, 2014 / 7:34 pm

      Yeah I reckon so! And I couldn’t really see much of it. Black jeans and a polo? How old are you by the way? You look really young!

    I hear you’ll be needing wellies for quite some time over there…

    • January 31, 2014 / 7:35 pm

      You heard correctly lol.

  7. January 31, 2014 / 7:30 pm

    Love the best it looks great and love the color.

    • January 31, 2014 / 7:35 pm

      Thank you!!

    Lol thanks i get that a lot im actually 23. When im clean shaven i look like im 15. Yeah i just realized the outfit is a little hard to see but yes its a green big pony polo and dark blue jeans. Pretty simple outfit for me, usually its those shirts or the striped rugby shirts with either jeans or khakis and my hunter wellies. Warm days i switch with shorts and shoes.

    • January 31, 2014 / 10:03 pm

      Same thing happens to me, people think I’m a teenager. People have only recently stopped asking why I’m not at school, that used to happen a lot, especially if I don’t have make up on!

    • January 31, 2014 / 10:01 pm

      Thanks Emma!

    Lol you do have a very young look about you but id sooner mistake you for a college student than a high schooler lol.

    • February 1, 2014 / 2:07 am

      Lol, thanks! I guess that’s an improvement!

    • February 1, 2014 / 2:08 am

    Lol hey people like us will appreciate it when we look how old we are now 15 years later.

    • February 1, 2014 / 8:19 pm

      That is true!

    • February 1, 2014 / 8:20 pm

      Hi, it’s at the top right in the social media buttons ๐Ÿ™‚

    I didn’t know you had the couture jeans in black! When I read your original review of them, you mentioned that the matte black fit at least a size small (or maybe I’m confused lol!) But they look great. I own the slates in at least a few washes, just down to the fact that they’re some of my favourites! And the Hunter boots look great! I really can’t get enough of my pair! Cute outfit ๐Ÿ™‚

    • February 1, 2014 / 8:22 pm

      Thanks Jen! Yeah these do run incredibly small, it’s hidden well though LOL! I can button them, but they are very tight and give muffin, but I wanted some nice black skinnies to wear with this outfit, so I chose those ones ๐Ÿ™‚

    • February 1, 2014 / 10:05 pm

      Thank you Nathalie!

    I love this look Lorna, I dont own wellies, but the Hunter ones you wear look so classy, as well as fashionable and comfortable x

      Thank you ali!

      That’s a tough choice! I love the short pink ones, they are like mine, so I vote for those, but I also absolutely love the bright blue, the union jack in gold and the orange and purple, but in terms of practicality, I’m unsure if the orange are too bright. I don’t know how well the short ones would suit you either as you look quite tall, so my vote goes to bright blue and union jack I think!

  15. Eric R

    Im actually fairly short at 5’7, i was leaning towards the union jack ones heavily from the get go, i absolutely LOVE the british flag and hunter boots so the two together are perfect! As far as practicality goes im not too picky, eventually id like to collect all colors and styles of hunter boots. Also the union jack boots would match my big pony polo with the british flag on it, its a forest green shirt with white logo

    • February 7, 2014 / 3:48 pm

      Oh are you? You looked taller! Then go for those ones, they are pretty cool! Did you see my new outfit post by the way?

  16. Eric R
    February 7, 2014 / 4:01 pm

    Which one, the tan jacket and blue jeans?

    • February 7, 2014 / 4:10 pm

      Yep! That one!

    Well to be completely and truthfully honest, i think you look sexy as hell. I mean really, your one of if not the most beautiful person ive ever met, so theres hardly an outfit ive seen you wear that i didnt think looked good on you. You have an amazing fashion sense, im just biased towards your hunter boot outfits cause theyre one of my favorite clothing items ever. Theres 2 dresses i think would look gorgeous on you but i know your not much of a dress person, its these two:×500.jpg

    But regardless of how you feel about those, i still think your amazingly gorgeous and a great person. I guess you could say i have a major crush on you lol

    Well to be completely and truthfully honest i think you look incredibly sexy. I mean you are already one of, if not the most beautiful person ive ever met so i like everything you post in. Im just biased towards hunter boots cause theyre one of my favorite clothing items ever. The only criticism i would have is i think youd look beautiful in some casual/vintage dresses. Theres a black sailor style one id love to show you sometime if you wanted to see. But really Lorna, i cannot find a flaw in you. Its why i keep coming back and commenting, your an amazing person and i love chatting with you. Its been really fun these past couple months!

    • February 7, 2014 / 4:39 pm

      Ah, I was wondering why I only really saw comments from you on wellies posts lol and not others, makes sense! Thank you, that’s very kind of you!

  19. Eric R
    February 7, 2014 / 4:42 pm

    Lol yeah but seriously, that jacket and those heels look really cute on you! Ill try to comment more on other outfits too, you really do have an amazing fashion sense! So next month i try out for rugby and in summer i start horseback lessons to play polo! Im so excited!

    • February 7, 2014 / 5:06 pm

      Oh that sounds like fun! Good luck with everything! I hope it goes well!

    Thanks me too! If youd like i could send you a team shirt when they give us our uniforms, the shirt will have grey and navy stripes and white collar, really good material.

    • February 7, 2014 / 6:08 pm

      Lol, thank you for the offer, but I will pass on that one ๐Ÿ™‚
