One of the best things about now doing my blog full time is that my weekends have become my own again. I can do proper weekend stuff like go out for walks, go shopping, have lunch out or go to the cinema because I'm not desperately trying to cram a weeks worth of blog work into two days. Last weekend we headed out with the dogs for a big long walk in a country park near us, pretty wrapped up as the weather was sunny but chilly and with our new Joules Wellies on our feet. In fact this is the first proper pair of wellies my other half has owned and if your going to trek through woods with our two dogs this Autumn, you're gonna need them trust me! He has the mens wellies in black and despite a slight struggle to get them on first time (which was quite hilarious if I'm honest) they fit him great and they were in the sale too so a bargain! I of course own more than one pair of wellies, I mean they are footwear after all right?!!! But I do especially love this striped pair of Joules wellies as they are super cute and such good quality.
The absolutely gorgeous coat is also a Joules coat. The padded coat is a huge style for Autumn this year and I just adored the mustard colour of this one and the fur collar (which is removable) and I tell you what, this beauty is sooooo warm! Like honestly cosy as a bug in a rug. Plus as you can see totally fits a big chunky jumper under it too, I sized up one to allow this. All in all a perfect wood walking outfit don't you think?
We took our two dogs; Eddie and Gus (read all about them in my Gus post) for a big long walk through our local country park which is only a 15 minute drive away. Gus absolutely loved it and of course we had to take his tennis ball which he promptly lost in a bush but it was so nice to get out somewhere different. In fact Joules have teamed up with National Trails and mapped out some of the best welly wearing walks in the country to help you get out and about in your wellies too. Plus they are running a competition and you can win a £150 voucher by uploading a picture of your own wellies. See all the details of the Welly Walk competition here.
I actually loved this outfit so much. The wellies were so comfy to walk in and in fact when we took the dogs to the seaside a few weeks ago, my feet got soaking wet so next time we are going to suit up in our Joules wellies again! I reckon they'll get a lot of wear this Autumn and the coat too.
This weekend I hope the weather is as beautiful as this day was and we can get out again with the pooches. I'd love to head to the coast again as when we went Gus loved jumping in the water (after his ball) and we walked along the beach and then had fish and chips and an ice cream, so pretty much the perfect day!
Here's to lots more walks in our wellies and lots more lovely relaxing weekends.
What are you up to this weekend? Roll on Saturday eh?
