A Few of My Favourite Things... Wellies

The snow may have gone for now, but it has left the ground boggy underfoot. A practical choice for a country walk at this time of year is a pair of wellies to wade through those mud puddles and save your usual footwear. The green Hunters of yesteryear are no longer reserved for country pursuits and are regularly seen on festival goers in the summer months. Patterned wellies can be fun, but for a sophisticated look stick to one colour. Laced boots look chic and are easier to put on than traditional long boots. Wedges not only give height but are great to give additional cushioning for joints and bones. For those who want the practical rubber offered by a welly but the look of a fashion boot, these Chelsea style ones are perfect:
