I really don't want to be boring and bang on about the weather again, but SERIOUSLY. WTF is going on in the UK right now?! Mike and I have been in London for the past few days, and it has quite literally been blazing sunshine one minute and torrential downpours the next. Pretty difficult to pack and dress for, especially when you have various events to attend. (A couple of family meals, plus the Pegasus Healthy Beauty Showcase for me, which you might have seen if you follow me on Snapchat - my username is katelouiseblogs.)
Luckily, a couple of new purchases have helped to see me through, together with a pair of very cool wellies which I was lucky enough to be sent by Butterfly Twists.

Zara really are brilliant at these Chanel style jackets, and I managed to pick this one up in the sale, which I was pretty chuffed about. I love the ruffle details, and it's the perfect thing to wear in this changeable weather as it gives you just enough cover when the sun decides to disappear behind a bank of cloud. With this super pretty Topshop blouse underneath, plus a pair of jeans and heels, I felt great when out for a boozy lunch with family over the weekend. Later on, I simply swapped the heels for my new wellies and voila! I was ready to walk it all off in the park.
Not only do the wellies feel cushioned and very comfortable to walk in, they're pretty stylish too. I love the taupe colour as it feels very summer appropriate, and I'm a big fan of the mock croc design. They'd be perfect for festivals with denim shorts! This particular style - the Carlisle - also comes in black or brown and I'm seriously considering picking up one of those colours for Autumn/Winter. As wellies go, they're about as chic as it gets, and I'm all about the chic! (Or at least that's what I tell myself.)
