After reading my copy of the April issue of Vintage Life Magazine which features an article all about wellies, I felt inspired to wear wellies with everything. We even had a couple of days when it rained heavily, so wellies suddenly became the most appropriate footwear. The outfit itself was a little bit inspired by an outfit shown in one of the photos in the feature, and was also something easy and comfortable to wear. I've been working six days a week recently (though thankfully not quite full days) and I've also been running a lot, so I'm finding myself gravitating towards outfits which are practical and don't require too much thought. I do a lot of lifting and kneeling, so I prefer to wear things which I can move around in and which don't matter too much if they get dirty. This loose-fitting 1960s dress fits the bill perfectly.
This jacket has also been getting quite a bit of wear recently. It's one left over from when I was at school which I bought when I was still bothered about trying to fit in with what was in fashion at the time, although honestly it was never really much my style. It's much more modern than most of my clothes - even my non-vintage clothes tend to be a classic style if not vintage repro - but I've actually been quite enjoying wearing it a bit now that the weather is starting to warm up a bit. I did have to dodge the raindrops for these photos though!
