|The right attitude is paramount|
|An attractive selection|
|The sixties look|
Intrepid festival goers exhibit an unfailingly positive attitude that many of us could learn from. If you don’t have a ‘mindless have a go’ mentality at these things you might doubt your own sanity at spending several hours sitting in a sea of mud in the pouring rain drinking over priced alcohol out of a plastic glass.
Another feature of experienced festival folk is that they will generally seize the opportunity to wear an array of attractive wellingtons. I was so impressed with the wide variety of attractive wellies on show at the Jessie J concert at Alnwick castle that took it upon myself to do a short wellie survey. Everyone was only too keen to display their colourful boots.
The Wellington boot was a type of work boot popularised by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. They are apparently also known as rubber-boots, topboots, gumboots, barnboots and in some quarters ‘poopkickers.’
Once a staple of outdoor wear for the British aristocracy they have come along way from the strictly dull green efforts which were the only sort available when I was a child. They are now a top fashion accessory and a festival must have. Ok so I got a bit carried away with the Wellington boot survey…
