John Lewis Wellington Boots (sizes 5 jnr-6)
Seeing as it hasn’t stopped raining for days (although it feels like weeks!), I was not surprised by the sudden flurry of ‘panic emails’ (and a ‘panic text’ from my sister this afternoon) asking where to buy decent wellies on the High Street, as many shops have apparently completely sold out… I bought these John Lewis ones a few months ago for nursery, and they’re great. Completely plain, with a chunky sole with grips, and a pull tab at the top to help little ones pull them on. And if you’re feeling daring, they also come in red.
ps: I also love these plain yellow ones from M&S, which I have already posted many moons ago. They are still doing them, and they are sill great. Love a yellow welly. These Mothercare ones are another great navy option.
Aigle Flac Wellies Boot (sizes 19-27)
I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s totally over this dreary, wet weather. We even managed a trip to London Zoo on Saturday just to get out of the house. The great thing was, it was virtually empty (who else would be stupid enough to take their three year old twins to the zoo on a rainy Saturday?). Anyway, the twins had a great time, and their trusty M&S (plain) red wellies got yet another outing. And this got me thinking that it’s probably about time for an upgrade (and the M&S ones are getting a little snug anyway). I have always loved Aigle for their nautical classics (many years ago when I was a Fashion Assistant at Marie Claire, I used to swear by their Breton t-shirts and Guersey jumpers…). Anyway, back in the Summer when I was at a twins’ second birthday party (the adorable, and ever-stylish Sid and Walt), I noticed two pairs of this particular boot by the door (nothing gets past my eagle eye, plus I have the memory of an elephant when it comes to these things…). And let me tell you, these two little boys definitely have style worth stealing! So now that Tabs and Marlow are due for new wellies, I’m definitely going to copy and buy these. A style classic (plus I love that they are quite short, like the M&S ones – perfect for toddlers).
M&S Panelled Welly Boots (sizes 4s-12s)
It’s not that long since I posted the red version of this exact boot, but when I spotted that they now come in yellow too (as seen with my own eyes in M&S in Westfied on Saturday), I had to share! I always love a yellow welly – such a kids’ classsic. Tabarlow have been wearing their red ones a lot recently, and I am very tempted to get them them these ones too now…
M&S Unisex Welly Boots (sizes 5s-13s)
One of my first ever posts, back in February was about a pair (well two pairs) of M&S wellies. Yellow ones. It was one of my most popular posts, and Tabarlow are still wearing said wellies now (in fact they wore them in the garden at their nursery just today). I have just ordered these red ones online for them (I’ve already given them the once-over in the store). Love that they are completely plain (not that easy to find, unless you go down the Hunters route, but even then they still have the little logo…), and really simple. I did love the yellow ones, but I thought red (it only ever makes very fleeting appearances in their wardrobes) would make a nice change. I think you can get away with a red welly somehow…
ps: 20% off all baby and kidswear at M&S until Sunday! Yay!
