I finally pushed the check out button today for these boots. Today is a sufficiently depressing day for me to use some cheering up!
The Hunter wellingtons come in violet!!
How pretty is that? This color immediately appealed to my young, girly side who adores purple! It would look so pop and pretty with my black trench coat on a pouring day (I’ll actually look forward to one!). But then I don’t think it would look really professional with a suit. Now that I’ve convinced myself that I should get a pair of Hunters (after my cheap pair of Target polka dot rainboots started to leak after maybe 5 wears, I’m ready to put down the money!!!!), I imagine that I’d be wearing them forever and it’ll take me from fun to work. Naturally I don’t plan to be wearing them at work with a suit, just on the way to work on a rainy day. But still, I don’t want to look like an idiot. Also, even though I have no doubt I’d still love this color in 5 years time, I’m not sure it would match with all my outfiits- it is a very vibrant purple!
Perhaps I should stick to my original plan and get the more somber Aubergine color? It is one of the “original” colors for a reason, and this one used to be “bright” comparatively before the violet came along! Thoughts?
And yes, I’m blogging abnormally early on a Saturday morning. I’ve been having nightmares all night about my upcoming gardasil shot (which is not until next next week!) etc and actually had to get up to rearrange the fengshui of my pillows in the hopes of better sleep.

Wowee I love those purple ones! So gorgeous. I’m with you though, I think I would still have to go with a more neutral colour like those lovely aubergine ones. x
I like the bright violet ones! they’re so cheery.
I love the purple ones! But I think the aubergine are so much more practical. I have my Hunter Wellingtons in green and I love them
Those violet ones are such a nice colour! I think I’d want the green ones or those violet ones!
I think wellies are so cute. We don’t get enough rain to warrant them though.
I love wellies! If only I had a time and place to wear them!
I love the dark purple ones. They would probably match better with more outfits. But the brighter ones would be a real standout though!
OMG! I love the fuschia violet color….it’s still hot hot hot in Los Angeles – what’s a girl to do…..
Absolutely get the purple wellies- you are so right that they will brighten up a dreary day and I am all about looking for positives in negatives. Bring your own purple lining to that storm cloud!
I just bought the aubergine ones, I live in Vancouver, so it should be perfect weather for them 🙂
