IT’S RAINING. SO?

Today you’ll see what I’ve already told you in Monday’s post; just me and Joerg all alone at Chirk Castle because there was no one else outside in this heavy rain. Actually it looked as if it was clearing up when we drove there. Well, we couldn’t have been more wrong. As soon as we spotted the castle heavy rain pushed in sideways. I really struggled to stand straight in some places. On the driveway I said to Joerg that I think it’s best to give it up and just go home. No way though. We wanted to give it a try at least. I know that the quality of the pictures isn’t the best but it’s the same with life which isn’t perfect all the time either, is it? You see that I’ve tried to wear my Acne booties in the first photos but that was over after about 5 minutes. I stepped into puddles and my calves got so dirty. It was no use, I needed to reach for my Hunter wellies yet again. I hope that’s okay with you. I really would have been lost without my Hunters and especially now with being outside most of the time, they are an essential. But there’s something great about it: You see that the wellies go with many many outfits and that’s something I love.

 
 

Hopefully I can be without them this weekend but who can know for sure?

 

What I wore:

King Louie Coat (from last year; love this, this and this one by the same brand), Fashion Union Dress (old; love this and this one as well), Acne Jensen Boots, Hunter Wellington Boots, ASOS Riding Cap (old), Saint Laurent Baby Duffle Bag via Uncloset (You can save 50£ off this January and 20£ off the next month if you sign up until the end of January using the code THELIFBISSUE)

Hi Kirsten, pity about the rain when you went to Chirk Castle but wearing your Wellingtons made the best of it and I’m with you that Hunter Wellingtons go well with most outfits and I think you look really good with your Wellingtons on.
Thank you for such a lovely and informative post.

You are quite brave to go out in these elements, Kirsten!! But the photos did turn out amazing—so see—great risk!
Can you believe I don’t have any Wellies? Of course, Denver is very arid, and when it does rain, it usually stops in about 10 minutes!! But snow? Now there’s an element we get a ton of!!

Yeah, I thought the same when we went out in this weather but were so glad we did. Oh wellies are a must here believe me but I bet you have a lot of winter boots in Denver, no?

Hunters are a must in the UK! Haha, although it s almost always Sunny when we stay there. What a gorgeous dress you are wearing! Love the pleats and the bow and the coat fits perfect with it!
