Joules Coast Waterproof Jacket With Hunter Refined Chelsea Boots
I almost forgot about these photos! They were actually taken back in April/May when we went to Farrington Farm and they got put in a folder to post the next month and then forgotten about as other outfit posts got in the way. Whenever I go to the farm though or run some errands and it’s raining, this is usually the type of look that I go for (or this one) as ankle wellies and a rain coat have sort of become my staple here in England. It’s a little too cold for this outfit now though since the temperatures have dramatically dropped lately, but it’s definitely become a signature of mine.
So what was I wearing? This is my Joules Coast Waterproof Jacket in Berry that I purchased from the brand over a year ago. This was actually my very first purchase from Joules and I fell in love with them since then, actually wearing their pieces on a weekly basis! This jacket has done me well though, it’s still in perfect condition (I own the red one too) and has been so useful. I can’t get enough of it, especially the beautiful berry colour. I paired it with a simple H&M Grey Jumper and my James Jeans Skinny Jeans in Black as they make the jacket pop really well and are perfect for my footwear choice, which is of course the Hunter Refined Ankle Chelsea Boots in Slate Grey.
My Hunter Boots were the very first pair of ankle wellies that I got actually. I got them back in March and have worn them so many times. Because they’re matte and a pretty two tone grey shade, they literally go with everything, especially black, blue or grey skinny jeans, and as I live in jeans – that’s ideal. You just need to cuff the hem so there’s a bit of ankle showing. They’re really snug and slim, much more fitted than the other Chelsea Boots they have as those are quite bulky, but these do run small. I’m usually a UK 6 in Hunter and I had to take these in a UK 7 as I couldn’t get the 6 on. They’re still quite tight though, so definitely size up if you buy them. They also keep my feet a lot dryer than the Joules ones I have as the ankle opening on these is a lot narrower so water doesn’t creep in. Anyway, what do you think of my outfit? Comment and let me know!
