Wellies, Puddles and a Castle

Clarks Pirate wellies

We love spending time outdoors - fact! But when winter draws in it means the all weathers and waterproof jackets come out along with the wellies. The little man loves jumping in puddles (as do I) so when the lovely people over at Clarks asked us to put some to the test as part of the #StyledByClarks campaign and of course we couldn't wait to get started. I recently attended the Clarks Press day in London and just have to say they have some of the best shoes for kids ever, so fun and innovative.

Our local store in St Davids, Cardiff had a great selection and Mr A was instantly drawn to these pirate wellies which are super fun and cute and have a nice grippy sole which is perfect for climbing castle stairs, rocks and ruins, which Mr A is very much into at the moment. This week we picked up a great little book about Castles and Knights at our local charity shop and thought we would pop to Caerphilly Castle for some first hand learning. The little man is filled with questions at the moment and outings like this are so much fun.

No matter what the time of the year or the weather we always make a point of getting some outdoor time during the week (as much as possible), we even have the fisherman style waterproof trousers waiting in the wings for Mr A but for now his jacket and wellies are the perfect combination for some free range fun and I am pretty sure they are going to last the whole season as they are both so robust.

Thanks to Clarks for having us involved in the #StyleByClarks campaign and gifting us the wellies

  5. Seriously I need those wellies for my Kiddoes. Seriously. Beyond cute.

  6. These boots look perfect for puddle jumping. It's great that they're so grippy and safe for climbing too, as you really can't stop kids from doing it. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

  8. Love the wellies! I usually love getting outdoors too but lately the weather has been so wet or cold that I end up not wanting to leave my house. I need to move somewhere warm!! x
