Wellies: Thumbs up or down?

Monday, October 31, 2011


I had a Skype-date with one of my friends in London over the weekend. She told me that wellies are the it shoes for gloomy, rainy, snowy and plain cold weather nowadays. I totally agree with Sofia as I'm a huge fan of wellingtons myself! It's so fun to see how those once unloved rubber boots became totally fashionable and oh-so snazzy! (And they are super comfy as well if you wear thick, cozy long socks with them). Darlings, what do you think about rain boots? Are you wearing them this season? Will you? xo

P.S: I have those and this pair with rain level is pretty cool too.
P.P.S: Pants made of wellies.

Anything that keeps my feet warm and dry is a thumbs up!

SmartBear said...

Yes, I love my wellies! The thick socks just don't cut it for snow and slush though. Gotta pull out the rain boots for that and fortunately, those seem to be hip right now too!
Best,
Tina

I love wellies and now that I actually need them, I am going to find those cozy sock liners for them. I have a basic black pair, but I think a bright pop of color is in order for my next :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh yes! Definitely a Wellies girl! I just wish I had Hunters. Big ol sigh!

Stephanie said...

I don't own any, but I'm going to go thumbs up, especially in light of the fact that my old (REALLY old!) snow boots have decided to stop being waterproof. I learned this the hard way while trying to clean up after the snow storm this weekend. ;-)

Jess said...

I live in Vancouver, and so rain boots are kind of a city staple. I have such trouble finding ones I like, though, because my calves are too big for the tall ones.

Vintage Market Place said...

I LOVE them!!!
I could collect them in every style and color. Sad for me cause it doesn't even rain here, lol
but I still have a closet full of wellies!
even if a sprinkle starts I put them on :)

Marissa said...

For the first time I live somewhere where I'll actually need them and I say yes!

Diana Mieczan said...

Sage, that jacket is awesome and Monica, I really want a pair in yellow now. Perfect colour for gloomy, rainy days:)
