I often approach ‘summer’ with distain. Despite endless reports of the ‘hottest year since time began’, real summer days are few and far between and it’s guaranteed to rain for weeks on end. Maxi dresses hang forlornly in wardrobes across the country as we reach for our jeans and put the factor 30 back in the bathroom cabinet.
But before you give up on your sweet summer dresses altogether, invest in a pair of wellies. I was determined to wear this vintage tea dress today, and a smattering of rain (or rather, a full-on thunder storm) was not going to stop me. I dug out some knee high socks, added a cardigan and slipped on my Hunters to make a 30-degree outfit suitable for, shall we say, cooler climes.
What do you think – can wellies work with everyday outfits, or should they be kept for dog walking, car booting and festivalling?
