☁ 1 - Loeffler Randall - these are my favourite. I would totally wear them in Summer too.
☁ 2 - Modcloth
☁ 3 - Modcloth (sold out)
☁ 4 - Hunter
☁ 5 - Target
☁ 6 - Burberry

I am searching for a pair of cute wellies for Sydney's wet weather season. I love those Loeffler Randalls', but I feel like rain boots should be for getting muddy and scuffed and therefore should not cost $150 (don't even get me started on those Burberry boots). I like short boots because they are more versatile and won't make you look ridiculous if the forecast was wrong and it turns out to be a beautiful cloudless day, whereas long boots are more practical and protective against the elements. Wellies evoke scenes of idyllic English seaside towns, taking long walks through the countryside and Elizabeth Bennet-esque muddy skirt hems ("positively medieval"); all things that I feel a sense of nostalgia about but have no reason to because I've never actually experienced any of them. I will very likely end up buying a cheapie pair from Target. 

Obligatory adorable picture of a piglet in boots. Nawww.


  1. i love your blog! & those red boots with the bow on them are so adorable!
    following :)

  2. I love the Target ones, they remind me of rainboots from when I was a kid and would definitely brighten up a rainy day... I haven't actually owned a pair since I was little, actually!

  3. lovely boots! xx

  4. ahaha LOVE your pride and prejudice reference; i swear she was walking around in the rain for the whole movie hahaha
    and i've always loved rainboots but apparently if i do go out wearing a pair my friends will instantly unfriend me...glad you share the same sentiment though ;)


  5. Hey,
    I found your blog because you follow Ashley’s blog (Ring my bell) and I thought I would check out a few other Bloggers that follow her. She has great style and I really like your as well. You have a awesome blog and this post is great, I love those wellies and how cute is that pig! It would be cool if we could follow each other!
    If you have facebook, I would be so grateful if you could like my page:

  6. Oh my goodness number 3 are so cute! I'm bummed they are sold out though. And that picture of the pig in boots is too cute!

  7. They're all so cute!! Haha I know what you mean, I was looking at all sorts of wellies forever till I ended up with a pair of leopard ones from the old ladies section for 20 bucks...

    Oh and yes, it is a phone box, but not a shoe rack. It's a little smaller, I think it's supposed to be a cd rack, but I use it for nailpolish and knick-knacks. :-)

  8. Your blog is literally the best thing ever, I love your header.

    And wellies are the best! I kind of wish I could wear them all the time :)

  9. Those are all sooooo cute! Are you also looking for some with designs and patterns on it? I would get some of those, too. I'm glad I ran into this post, I'm reminded I need to buy some! :)

    * Always, Stephanie

  10. love the third pair! i've been wanting to buy a similar pair for so long... hope it rains a lot in Newcastle hehe so i can put them to good use! x

  11. nice entry, great post.
