Hunter Wellies



After Monday's all day long dounpour, I decided it might be time to buy some rain boots. Of course, I would only buy Hunter Wellies. I would have bought them already but there are too many colors to choose from and I can't decide! Now, I see silver and gold ones are online. My instincts are to stick with the classics:

Always worn by Queen Elizabeth, these dark green wellies were made EXTREMELY popular by Lady Diana Spencer in the 80's after wearing them during her engagement to you-know-who...

These days, worn by Nicole Richie...

Gwyneth wearing navy in Spain...

The little ones are super cute..as seen on Matilda Ledger..pink just like Hopsy!

I am loving the silver..will let you know which ones i get..maybe red???

Love my Hunter Wellies! Mine are navy with red trim. Perfect for trudging through the wet turf.

I'm dying for a pair of Hunter or Burberry wellies!!! No use for them here, so will get them someday when our tour of the island is thru...

I have the green...but, I wish I would have gotten the eggplant color.

I love my red ones and green ones...because I couldn't choose...still wanting navy, too. Have fun with the socks that you can get to go inside...they really change up the look.

I own a pair of navy and pink, but I think that the red and yellow are fabulous!

I always want to get a bright color and then it looks ridiculous. I think N Richies got it right with the green. Navy sounds good too.

I have had the green one for like 15 plus years and I just got the black a few months ago. I decided that Gwynnie's wearing black not navy in the Spain series. Believe me, I obsessed over the slight distinction b/t the two...XXOO

I've got the navy, brown, and dark green, and believe it or not I wear the brown ones the most. Easily the most boring, but they go with soo much.

I love my old Hunter wellies. Unfortunately I lost them traveling. I'm spending this weekend in Newport RI and it is suppose to pour! Is there anywhere in Newport to buy Hunter wellies? I'm desperate because all the stores by me seem to be sold out.

I adore my Hunters, and I also have a few pairs. I think the new glossy ones are fantastic. I do have the bright pink ones though, and they are great. I just can't believe how comfortable they are and I wear them all the time.
