How To Wear Posh Wellies : Over 40 Style…

With a heart patterned dress, a chunky warm cosy cape and some bright yellow tights…

I wore this outfit in the school holidays on a trip to Meadowhall for a meal out at Frankie and Benny’s. 

Initially we planned a nice day out shopping and looking for Christmas Ideas, but unfortunately our Gas boiler has broken and it put a bit of a damper on the day and a cap on spending any money. 

This outfit cheered me up though, loving my new posh wellies and they went together great with my bright yellow tights.

The morning before our day out, a man can to give us a quote on how much it would be to fix our boiler. 

He said he couldn’t mend it and we need a new boiler putting in. 

Asking how much it would cost to fit one he said ‘I will pop down later with a quote’. 

Nearly a week later still no quote…

Makes me wonder~Do people ever keep their word? Who can you trust? Do people care when you have a family to keep warm and clean? Do people want work?

They have forecast -4 degrees weather this week, hopefully not or I will be walking around the house in these boots to keep warm. 

Fingers crossed we find someone decent this week, who can help..

    Love the outfit, really well put together. I like the Posh Boots with the Yellow tights! Hope the boiler issue gets fixed soon, tradesmen can be difficult to catch at times. Popping in from Creative Mondays.
