Cocoa And Khaki


(Jeans – Similar & Similar, Coat – Exact & Similar, Wellies – Similar & Similar)

It’s been a little while since I posted something casual featuring a pair of wellies here on my blog, but I did wear my new Hunter Original Tall wellies in Cocoa Gloss last month when it was raining. These are a strange colour in person as sometimes they are brown and then other times they are more green, so I think the Cocoa name was very accurate. I didn’t have a pair of brown wellies, so I was on the lookout for a pair for ages. I’m glad that I came across these! I paired them with my 7 For All Mankind raw hem skinny jeans (similar here) and my Zara faux fur parka coat. This is just something really warm and casual for a quick day out running errands and stopping for lunch.

On a side note, when February hits, there are going to be some changes to my blog in terms of content. I’m going to be adding in depth reviews of things I buy, like bags, shoes etc and I’m also going to be making sure that my outfit posts are the best they can possibly be as I’m going for a more professional feel. I really hope you will enjoy it! Let me know what you think of my outfit though! I would love to know what other fashion bloggers think of my wellies!

    I really like your outfit! 7 jeans are a great fit for you. Are these wellies new? They look extra shiny!

      Thank you! Yes, they were new! This was the first time I had worn them out!

    You look adorable, love the color of the Wellies. I’m excited to read your more in depth reviews. I really liked the denim blog and your extensive reviews on jeans, helped a lot.

    Looking fabulous as usual Lorna! Though i always have favored your hunter boots posts, this outfit really comes together and you look incredible!

    Super jealous of your Hunters though, while nothing beats the build and look of a Hunter welly, i really like the cocoa brown color with the gloss. Where did you get them from? Heck i would even swap you my beloved pink ones for those!

    Thank you Lorna! I may have to try and make room for these, too dang cute to pass up! This would make the 3rd pair ive gotten inspiration from you (navy and ruby the other two), i was debating the glossy grey but the cocoa brown, especially on you, looks much classier and practical

    • Lorna
      January 8, 2015 / 10:23 pm

      I think it looks classier! Grey is a hard one to pull off, especially in gloss, it sort of looks elephantish if that makes sense lol! These ones are cheaper too since they are in the sale and will go with everything!

    Yeah and the price is phenomenal! 90 us dollars, cant find them under 140 at department stores. This makes them much easier to buy, might be buying today! Though the lagoon ones are a bit enticing too ๐Ÿ™‚

      January 8, 2015 / 10:35 pm

      Ha ha! You are gonna have to get both then ๐Ÿ˜€

    January 8, 2015 / 10:46 pm

    Agh don’t tempt me! I just might lol. They’re both gorgeous. I think i’m gonna stick with brown first though, you have completely sold me on them. I feel like any jeans would look good with them and i’d have an excuse to find a brown polo top i like ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lorna
      January 8, 2015 / 10:55 pm

      Yeah, the only thing I don’t think looks good with them is grey ๐Ÿ™‚ Everything else goes!

    I think if i were to ever do grey wellies is for a pink/grey color pallet. I’ve always loved pink and grey together, though pink and green is my all time favorite, they would do great with a touch of white. Great, now i wanna go on a welly spree! Lol

      Ha ha! I have some new aubergine ones to shoot this weekend, but that shoot is going to be a bit more special! Stay tuned for it!

    Awesome! Whats your collection up to now then? I think you’re the only person i know that has nearly as much as me lol

    • Lorna
      January 9, 2015 / 12:01 pm

      I have Navy Gloss, Ruby Gloss, Cocoa Gloss, Black Matte, Aubergine Matte and then the Joules with ribbons!

    I’m impressed Lorna, we’re both at right about the same number. I have matte black, navy, pink, enamel, and ruby gloss. I have also been entertaining getting a short pair with a cute contrasting welly sock. Any color suggestions?

    • Lorna
      January 9, 2015 / 3:24 pm

      Since you like green and pink, green wellies and pink socks?

  15. rainydayprepster
    January 9, 2015 / 4:49 pm

    Hmmm thats a very good idea! Though i think i will primarily wear them in winter, maybe green with white sock? Btw i hope I’m not burdening you with our conversations, i really enjoy our chats ๐Ÿ™‚
