What I Wore: Polka Dots and Wellie Boots

Having a gloomy day? Here’s a yellow polka dot rain coat to cheer you up! And some blue wellie boots!  Yellow is one of my favourites – I don’t own a lot of yellow clothes but it’s just the happiest colour. These Vivienne Westwood for Melissa boots are also the happiest wellies (they smell like blueberries. No, really) so I think that makes them a good raincoat-wellie boot combination. I’ve had these boots for a couple of years and they still smell like blueberries, which is pretty impressive. Even more impressive is that they kept my feet dry. They’re practical and pretty 🙂

I love to shop at People Tree when I can – they’re committed to being ethical and environmentally friendly which is something I really care about. A lot of their stuff isn’t my style but they always have a couple of really classic pieces like this white shift dress. My jumper is something that I wear all the time. I can’t get enough fluffy clothes in my life at the moment. Also, it’s cropped at my waist! This means I can wear it with all my favourite clinched-at-the-waist dresses. I really need more waist-high jumpers because I find them so much easier to wear.

The lipstick that I’m wearing is my favourite everyday lipstick. It’s super hydrating and low maintenance and I think it brightens up my face.

Some days it’s just too easy to write an essay about what I’m wearing! I’ll stop myself there. What have you been wearing to brighten up gloomy days?

  1. Oh my gosh Jess!! You look so fantastic! I actually have two yellow coats and lots of other yellow bits and pieces. I used to really like bits of yellow as accents to an outfit and slowly yellow is taking over the wardrobe of mine. Also yay for Melissa x Vivienne Westwood! I have some Melissa plimsolls which still smell like strawberries… such a great brand. xXXX

  2. This is one of my favorite outfits of yours!! Those boots are *incredible,* and how cool that they smell like blueberries?! I’ll have to give that lipstick a try, I always have trouble finding ones that don’t just dry my lips out immediately.
