• {Fashion Monday} How to dress your Wellies

    Anyone who lives in the UK knows the importance of owning a pair of wellies or a good pair of boots that will last you a while whilst withstanding the harshest of the British weather. I have owned ‘knock-off’ type of wellies before and I was met with sweaty and sticky boots which is not a good look since it practically rains on a daily basis in this country. Though the weather can be unpredictable and sometimes a huge inconvenience, we the Brits have now mastered the art of dressing for four seasons in one, obviously in the respective seasons we wear the appropriate attires but we have also learned how to be prepared and ready for ‘mostly‘ the rainy season.

    How to dress your wellies

     

    When I was asked if I wanted to review a pair of Wellington boots from Butterfly Twist, I couldn’t believe my luck. As I shared my in Festivals outfit ideas post, my sister and I are planning to attend at least one festival this year and for me these wellies could not have come at a better time. I have spent a great deal of time thinking about how to dress your wellies. Those who know me know I prefer to dress for summer and Wellington boots ain’t exactly summer attire unless you’re attending a festival or its raining (which it does 90% of the time here). But this has not deterred me from attempting to create my own version of how to dress your wellies.

    I have always associated wellies with (1) rainy season and (2) festivals, since it already all the time here that’s nothing special compared to festivals. When I picture attending a festival and what I would wear the first thing that comes to mind is shorts. I have read many a magazine that has suggested at festivals, bohemian styles are the way to go when it comes to festival but what if you’re like me and maxi skirts or dresses are not exactly what you want to be donning? Fret not I have created two looks which are effortless but chic and stylish without the fear of constant sweating through your attire.

    So we have already decided that ankle Wellington boots are what you will be donning, next step is to choose what type of shorts you want to wear. For me personally I always chose between casual belted shorts or high-waisted shots and because my mid section is not flat adds but extra padding high-waisted is what I go for 90% of the time. You will have noticed also that I have not chosen denim shorts but gone with material shorts, this is a personal choice but you can replace the shorts with whatever denim shorts you like.

    As it’s a festival more skin is shown off than most times (except for the beach) especially if the weather is good so I have opted for cropped tank tops, these can be either fitted or lose and y’all know I prefer loose-fitting for tank tops so as not to draw too much attention to my mind section. A festival attire wouldn’t be complete without some sort of fringe in your outfit so I opted for some fringe in the kimono and backpack then add a straw hat with some simple jewelry pieces.

    And there you have it, my two outfit ideas on how to dress your wellies in summer or at a festival. How would you dress your ankle Wellington boots?

      Great idea! I love wellies for walking on the beach. I have way too many pairs to have to wait for rain.

      • June 15, 2016 / 5:57 am

        I am actually going to use mine for walking on the beach soon

      I have never heard of Wellies before but they look so cute!! I wonder if I would get funny looks wearing them in the south?!

      • June 14, 2016 / 9:07 pm

        You must be in the states then lol

    20. June 14, 2016 / 5:18 pm

      I wonder how many farmers are now glue-gunning and pimping up their Hunters 😉

      • June 14, 2016 / 6:23 pm

        Hahaha I wonder

      June 14, 2016 / 4:45 pm

      I think that’s a beautiful outfit. I would certainly wear some of those pieces. I really love the black bag. It’s pretty!

      • June 14, 2016 / 6:23 pm

        Thanks Kathy

    22. June 14, 2016 / 2:53 pm

      my wellies are big, green clunking things. I’m not sure how cute I’d look in them with shorts. Love the smaller wellies though.

      • June 14, 2016 / 2:56 pm

        Hahahaha I picture garden wellies lol

      • June 14, 2016 / 2:54 pm

        I didn’t for a while until these were sent

    23. June 14, 2016 / 2:13 pm

      Gotta love Wellies! I’m drooling over the handbag, too. Big enough for my Kindle and other books — my requirements for any handbag purchase.

      • June 14, 2016 / 2:54 pm

        I have the same requirements too when it comes to buying bags 90% of the time

        I am sure she would

    28. June 14, 2016 / 4:03 am

      I had no idea there were ankle Wellies, but I love them. I think I would pair mine with leggings or skinny jeans and a fun top; something boho inspired.

      • June 14, 2016 / 5:13 am

        Boho inspired is what I was thinking too but not sure I could pull it off

      I love everything when it comes to fashion. And this is very helpful to me beacause I didn’t know on how to dress wellies properly. This really looks amazingly beautiful and stunning.

      • June 14, 2016 / 5:10 am

        I am glad to hear that lol

    32. June 14, 2016 / 1:41 am

      This is awesome! More people should wear wellies like this. I’m definitely liking the fringe for a festival look.

      • June 14, 2016 / 5:06 am

        Thanks Liz, I am loving my wellies and the fringe

      I don’t have a pair of Wellington Boots, but I sure love boots and it would be nice to get some outfit ideas. I love that you went with an all black outfit, it looks really lovely. Perfect for a festival too!

      • June 14, 2016 / 5:06 am

        Thanks Elizabeth, since most of my readers say how they mostly only have black items I thought why not show how black can be styled too

      • June 14, 2016 / 5:05 am

        Thanks Rosana

    34. June 14, 2016 / 12:36 am

      Those would be great for the winter months. I love a good pair of boots in the winter to keep my feet warm.

      • June 14, 2016 / 5:04 am

        Me too but in England wellies are not limited to winter unfortunately lol

    35. June 14, 2016 / 12:11 am

      I have always wanted a pair of ankle wellies and it would be perfect with the shorts and crossover top!

      • June 14, 2016 / 5:02 am

        I too wanted some and when I got them I was too happy

      Ohhh, I think ankle wellies are great! And a great look too, they go with shorts or jeans! Really great ideas on how to dress your boots, I love your outfit choices, especially the shorts with flowers on, so pretty! Lovely post xx

      • June 13, 2016 / 10:09 pm

        Thanks so my Sarah, I love floral prints as they are so easy to dress

    37. June 13, 2016 / 9:04 pm

      I’ve never seen a fashion post like this, and it’s so useful! I wish I had some inspiration like this when I was living in the Pacific Northwest!

      • June 13, 2016 / 10:08 pm

        Awww thanks so much Jasmine

    38. June 13, 2016 / 8:57 pm

      I must admit that, like you, I always associate wellies with festivals. Given the amount of rain we’ve had this past week, I should learn just to associate it with British Summers instead!

      • June 13, 2016 / 10:08 pm

        Hahahaha I agree British Summer = wellies season too lol

    39. June 13, 2016 / 5:52 pm

      I didn’t own wellies until I had kids and now I have a lovely Joules pair for those muddy walks we do.

      • June 13, 2016 / 7:42 pm

        The muddy walks sound like fun

    40. June 13, 2016 / 5:41 pm

      I love the name Wellies for boots. Now I can tell my kids to put on their wellies.

      • June 13, 2016 / 7:42 pm

        Hahahaha yea it’s a cute name

    41. June 13, 2016 / 5:12 pm

      This is awesome. I love nude and black so much. Both are so elegant!!

      • June 13, 2016 / 5:24 pm

        Thanks I love blacks and nude

    42. June 13, 2016 / 4:17 pm

      I’ve always loved UK fashion, so sad I life in a hot ass hell place and can’t wear this type of clothes..

      • June 13, 2016 / 4:49 pm

        How I wish we had proper summer here lol but grass is always greener on the other side

    43. June 13, 2016 / 3:21 pm

      I seriously need to replace my wellies before Glastonbury next week and these ones look lovely. I think ankle ones are so practical! x

      • June 13, 2016 / 4:48 pm

        Oooh have fun at Glastonbury I have always wanted to go

    44. June 13, 2016 / 2:12 pm

      The only time I wear wellies are when I’m gardening, I don’t think I can do style and mud at the same time. I really like the shorts and wish I had nice thighs to go with them! #ukbloggerclub

      • June 13, 2016 / 4:47 pm

        Hahahaha style and mud I like that. I like daring myself so I guess it’s style and mud for me lol

    45. June 13, 2016 / 1:32 pm

      I am terrible at putting outfits together. These looks are amazing. I’m going to shop your blog from now on 🙂

      • June 13, 2016 / 4:46 pm

        Hahahaha I am glad to hear that lol

    46. June 13, 2016 / 12:01 pm

      I’ve been eyeing ankle welly boots for some time now. I actually have two wellies! One regular farmer’s boots I use to walk the dog and one really cute Joules wellies when I feel like I want to look less scruffy 😉

      • June 13, 2016 / 2:41 pm

        I like that ‘look less scruffy’, I am loving my new pair

    47. June 13, 2016 / 11:27 am

      Love the whole look and what a cool idea to pick ankle wellies! Ireland is the same as the UK in terms of rain so I’ve been thinking I should invest in an attractive pair of wellies. I think the ankle ones would be great with dresses and would avoid the whole ‘soggy sock’ syndrome 🙂

      • June 13, 2016 / 2:06 pm

        Hahahaha so true and thanks

      • June 13, 2016 / 11:22 am

        Ooh that’s cute too, wonder why I didn’t think of it

    48. June 13, 2016 / 9:15 am

      That was a fantastic layout of what a real dressing up in the wellies is. I love the outfit and I could definitely make use of the accessories.

      • June 13, 2016 / 9:20 am

        Thanks so much Kathy, I am loving my wellies big time

    49. June 13, 2016 / 8:15 am

      These are great ideas on how to dress your boots. Those are pretty outfits. I love both shorts.

      • June 13, 2016 / 8:17 am

        Thanks so much, I try 😊
