My limited edition Orla Kiely Cafe Creme wellies have finally arrived! On Thursday.
It rained everyday after, for three days, and that meant that I got to wear them very often and almost immediately! It's been loads of fun planning my wardrobe around them boots, like I usually do with new and exciting purchases.
I've been looking to buy a pair since summer, in preparation for a cold and wet winter, but have not had much luck because the first pair that I fell in love with was not available anywhere in shops, both real and virtual, and they were pretty hard to beat.
These Hunters in Camel Tweed by Tamara Henriques! I've spent days trawling through leads on the Internet but had no luck. She had other beautiful pairs in her collection but I simply had to have them in Camel Tweed!
I was about to give up, with winter ending soon and thus no need for a pair until year, when I suddenly got hit by a flash of "shopping intuition" to go look at the Orla Kiely site. I bought them immediately!
The last thing a winter-hater like me would want is more cold and rainy days but I'm actually secretly hoping for more of them because my wellies now make them seem like fun.
