Halloween antics and how the top designers are embracing the wellington boot!
It’s Halloween time and normally we go seriously large. Having a background in event organising, I couldn’t do Halloween without making an event of it. We create frightening signs, line the driveway with hideous masks, pelt scary haunted music all around the house and my children wander around as ghosts whilst I am fully dressed as the wicked witch from The Hermitage! We have become renowned in the village for terrorising the neighbourhood! Oh, and forget nice sweets, the children receive paprika coated dried apricots, if they are lucky. But they come back for more, as it is a truly haunting experience and they love it.
If you want the experience, follow the link below, at your peril!
Whether you are out trick or treating with your children (are we still able to do it this year?) or just out for a walk, the weather really has turned and the rain seems to prevail most days.
The Guardian recently published an article by Lauren Cochrane...
‘Bootylicious: the unexpected return of the wellington boot’.The article talks of the top designers – Vogue, Prada, Versace... all endorsing the trends and how ‘fashion-conscious consumers may finally be seeing the benefit of practical footwear. Wellies - worn by toddlers, dog walkers and festival - goers - are now the choice of the stylish, too.'
'As more people embrace the countryside, with rural addresses becoming an aspiration, what better way to this than be wearing your practical and elevated pair of wellington boots'.
We can all still go for walks, and boy, we do need the fresh air, so why not do it with a bit of style and brighten your day with a fun pair of wellies. Life’s too short for dull!
