HUNTER APPROPRIATION




Wellington's: Hunter
Coat: Next
Faux Fur Collar: from my coat
Knee high socks: Next

Those of you who know me or follow my twitter will know that I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND people wearing Wellington's in the middle of cities. I see ridiculous amounts of people walking down Oxford Street wearing them in average weather - I genuinely cannot comprehend it. I'm from a small town surrounded by fields and its rare to see anyone wearing Wellington's whilst walking their dog let alone shopping down the high street.

Yes, the whole country chic is still in, but must we seriously wear Wellington's in the city on a perfectly reasonable day!? Therefore on my most recent home visit I took the opportunity to photograph Hunter's in the appropriate environment: mud!

I'm certain my disdain for appropriate Wellington wear stems from when I fell in love with horses and horse riding. I wore wellies for the first year of lessons whilst the rich kids had various riding boots. I wasn't remotely fussed about what I wore - I just completely loved riding and won numerous ribbons for riding without the desired boots, ha! I think they were my last pair of Wellington's until I started going to festivals, where they are THE essential footwear, my parents brought me a pair of Hunter Wellington's as a gift for completing my A-levels (3 years ago) for Reading Festival, I wore them at both V and Boardmasters this year (above photo). As I am quite petite I decided against the original Hunter as it was more of a knee-high boot than a Wellington and opted for the Huntress - I haven't seen any about tbh and thought they may have been discontinued, however I've googled them and they;re still available and seemingly considerably cheaper.

Yeah they're ideal footwear for English weather, festivals and rural life but seriously, not ideal footwear for Westfield. Does anyone else share my view on this? or am I MA-jorly overreacting?
