Autumn Walks with Joules ♥

This blog post is going to be shorter than I had anticipated as it appears hardly any of the photos I took came out properly. Isn’t it annoying when that happens? Every bloggers worst nightmare; so much time wasted on standing posing like a lemon and shouting at your Dad to take another photo at a different angle!
Anyway, I recently enjoyed a lovely family day out in Oxfordshire with my parents, Auntie, Uncle, and cousins. We went for a little walk along The Ridgeway to English Heritage site Wayland’s Smithy. You won’t catch me wearing proper walking attire and as we were going for a pub lunch afterwards I opted for a casual outfit of a floral day dress, ditsy Barbour wellies and my new Winchester Joules jacket.


The day started off pretty chilly but bright and sunny with a forecast of showers (aka typical unpredictable British weather) so I decided this would be the perfect raincoat to wear to cover all possibilities. It’s lightweight but 100% waterproof (with a hood too), although luckily it didn’t rain in the end!

The jacket is actually 3-in-1 as it comes with a little quilted jacket which attaches to the inside of the coat securely to give an extra layer of warmth. The inner jacket has a super soft furry fleece lining which will be perfect to wear with the coat when the winter weather kicks in soon.

The Winchester is such a versatile and practical coat; I’ve been wearing it non stop for these mild but wet days, and being able to attach the inner jacket was ideal for watching the fireworks. And I love the big roomy pockets and adjustable waistband.. functional yet stylish! It comes in Marine Navy and Dark Pine and I decided to go with the navy as I felt it would probably go with more of my outfits. I do like the colour a lot as it goes with practically any outfit and I especially love that it matches my floral wellies! 

After we had our family walk we went to a local pub for a traditional Sunday roast. I love doing nice family things like that on a weekend! We all had a lovely catch up and it was so nice to see everyone and spend time together as we don’t get to see each other very often.

Have a great weekend!

    Your first paragraph made me chuckle. It is awful when you're snapping away and then the cameras results aren't what you hoped for.

    Anyhow, I also enjoy getting out and walking, but just like you, I opt for a nice outfit with wellies.
