Regular readers of this blog know that I love going to music festivals or concerts. During the summer season, an outdoor location is often picked as the venue, but this does not guarantee sunny and warm weather… My Rock The Nation post explained that fact in detail! I also remember going to a festival in Switzerland up in the mountains many years ago. I had made the mistake of wearing hiking shoes, but since we were sinking into mud up to mid-calf I bitterly regretted my choice… Of course, I should have worn wellies instead!
I never made that mistake again and now own a few pairs of that essential accessory should the weather forecast be for rain. I have in fact just added these funky festival wellies to my collection:
I love the cheerful green floral pattern and the fact that they are adjustable at the top. My lower legs being thin, it can be difficult to find boots of any kind that suit their shape nicely. Being a size 38 in Germany I ordered a size 5. The wellies fit well but should I need to wear thicker socks they would probably be a bit tight. Fortunately there is an innersole that can be removed and that would give enough room.
I now have an alternative to my leopard print, camouflage and plain dark blue wellies to match the perfect festival outfit to!
