It’s Wellie Time

Standard

Wellies“Wellies” are what they call rubber boots in the UK.   It started raining last night and should continue for the next couple of days, so I was super excited to wear my “wellies” to work today.  Here’s a little trivia for your rainy Wednesday . . . .  “Wellies” were worn and popularized by Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington.  This “Wellington” boot became a staple of hunting and outdoor wear for the British aristocracy in the early 19th century.

They’re very comfortable and pretty true to size.  I love the buckle on the side and the stripe on the back, which I did not get a pic of.  These were a birthday gift and I love them!! Thanks Sherry!!

Here’s the U.S. website and fyi, you can get some of the styles from “target.com”.  There are sooo many cute ones it’ll be hard to choose!!  http://tinyurl.com/nc4yztz
