Whatever The Weather

I got to pick out a jacket and some walking shoes to review. All thoughts are my own and I was not paid for this post.

Happy Tuesday.

There are a few things certain in my daily routine that I have to do each and every day. No matter what. Wake up (I hope) and make the bed. Pop some clothes on. Get mine and my Children’s breakfast ready and brush my teeth. Also, once these first few jobs have been done I have to walk Mollie The Collie.

She is always excited to get outdoors and will not leave me alone until she has had her first walk of the day. No matter what the weather is like. Not once has she thought, Oh it is raining today, I will let Mum stay inside and I will just chill!!

This means I have to brave the Great British Weather!! No time to be ill, when you have a dog.

We go walking everywhere. Through parks and woods, streets and trails. A good few hours each and every day. Just lately with this current spell of wet weather, I have been fed up trying to dry trainers out. Nothing worse than soggy trainers.

Thankfully Millets have come to the rescue and asked me to take part in their Take The Lead collaboration.

Millets wanted to make this cold wet spell a little easier for me. They asked me if I would like to choose a waterproof jacket from their Women’s Jacket’s collection. Also some proper walking shoes from their Women’s Footwear hero collection. To help me embrace those Winter walkies.

First Up I picked Out This Lovely Peter Storm View Purple Jacket:

The Peter Storm View Jacket boasts versatility and protection. Wear the waterproof shell in a downpour, the fleece when there’s a slight chill and zip them both together for the ultimate weather protection.

The I Picked Out Some Women’s Country Roamer Walking Shoe:

Constructed with a high performing Vibram® outsole the Brasher Country Roamer Walking Shoe can handle a variety of terrains including wet and rocky trails. Complete with an EVA midsole to cushion your foot for unrivalled comfort and support.

How lovely!? A proper pair of walking shoes and a jacket suitable for all weathers. Perfect for lots of walking.

You can always guarantee Mollie will find something on our walkies. Luckily for me, this time it is only an old tennis ball!!

I am really pleased with the things I picked out. The shoes will do some miles over the next few months and this jacket will keep me warm and dry too. Brilliant.

What do you think of my all-weather jacket and new walking shoes?

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Now imagine a husky who needs a lot of walking and that even at 40 below zero. I am glad that cats don't want to go out in miserable weather.

    Your dog is gorgeous. Having proper walking gear is a godsend when you are out and about in all weathers. The amount of trainers I've ruined in muddy puddles over the years doesn't bear thinking about! Purple is my favourite colour so I love your jacket #pocolo

    That jacket looks really nice and those boots look comfortable! Sometimes I miss my dog because I always had to take him out, which got me walking too.

    Hi Claire, I need a decent storm jacket the one I have now lets in the rain if it;s coming down heavy. The dogs got a better one than me! Our small dogs are a little fussy about h=what weather they'll go out in, if it's too hot, too cold or raining it's a big no-no. Which is why one of them has a storm jacket (he's pathetic). It doesn't look like Mollie the Collie is worried by a bit of rain!Thank you for hosting.xx

      Thanks Debbie. Mollie does not actually like rain but hen she knows she wants her walkies more and after thinking about it, off she goes 🙂
