Be prepared for the snow in style

Aren’t they beauties? This last week we got our first snow of 2014 and the first thing I did was go and pull out my favourite Joules Wellies. I have a turquoise pair with red polka dots but now seriously I’m lusting after the floral ones above. 

I can remember when wellies were highly unfashionable and with about as much style as a bin liner. Joules have certainly changed that with their range of patterned and brightly coloured wellies which are excellent quality. Here’s some of my favourite styles:

1. Purple Long Glossy Welly, £60

2. Polka Dot Long Welly, £39.95

3. Floral Long Welly, £39.95

4. Hare Print Long Welly, £39.95

5. Molly Short Welly, £34.95

The hare print ones are adorable as well!

I like to wear my wellies with thick tights and a tea dress or with some skinny jeans or leggings tucked into them. Now that snow has become a regular winter occurrence here in the UK I think it’s worth being prepared with some good quality wellies, any of these would cheer me up while digging my car out!

Have you had snow where you are? Do you own a pair of wellies? How do you like to wear them?

    We haven’t had snow yet, but I do wear wellies regardless to walk around the countryside where we live. I have some quilted Joules wellies and I love them. :-)

    don’t really need boots for snow, but I could easily be persuaded with these ones! Wellies have become really stylish lately, it’s great when practical and fashion meet in the middle.

      I couldn’t agree more, so happy that wellies actually look good now!

    I am not familiar with the term of ‘wellies’, ha ha! Is it a general description for this type of boot, or is it a designer? I own a few pair of Hunters. Love my Hunters. Red, green, and purple in the wardrobe. And I always wear them with tights and a cute little skirt. ;)

      Ah, maybe because I have shortened it from Wellington Boots! Hunters are the best, I’d love to own a pair :-)

    Oh no not snow! I love snow but I hate driving in it, and I hate it when the pavements get all compacted and icy.
    I have trouble with wellies as often they are too narrow (I think they are usually built for taller people or something). I had some cool spotty ones from Sainsbury’s but they were so tight I could not wear them with anything. I have some shorter ones now (like those number 5 ones) from Animal and I wear them at the allotment. For the snow I have some lovely fat face boots as the sole is nice and chunky and has better grip.

      I sometimes get a size bigger as I have wide feet, plus I like to wear extra socks to keep warm!

    I have a pair of old faithful Hunter wellies, although I think they may have a hole in them now :(
    No snow down south yet, was saying to the kids that I think its the first year they can remember us NOT having snow!

      I’d love some proper Hunters! Fur lined ones sound so snug :-)
