Like many I have new years resolutions coming out my ears. I can never decide where to begin so I went for the top of my list – 1.Get out in the fresh air more.
|Ready for a chilly but sunny morning walk|
|You need to wear items you don’t mind if they get wet or muddy|
I love coats and wearing a luscious looking mac or elaborate jacket, but dog walking (or walking) isn’t practical to venture out in such an item. You need a coat for dog walking that is practical but still looks good. The one you see in my photos is one from Ripcurl, now I know such a brand is for snowboarding or skiing but if you get one that isn’t too padded, you’ll be onto a winner! Have a look on Surfdome if you’re looking for a stylish yet practical coat.
Hats & Gloves
Obviously you won’t need these in the summer time, (I bloomin’ hope not) but getting a good hat and gloves will keep your fingers and ears toasty whilst you venture regardless of weather. You can get proper walkers hats and gloves from places like Millets, but if you don’t want splash out try New Look or Topshop for some stylish numbers!
|It can be very muddy – just see what New Years Day was like!|
One thing I hate is having cold feet, so it’s always good to get some well made socks to cuddle your toes! You can proper walking ones from your high range shop, but my advice would be to head into your local TKmaxx, as they often will have some snuggly walking socks at a fraction of the price.
I always wear some kind of knitted or fleece style jumper, If you dress everything else ideal for walking and then just let your top do the talking. If say you’re in your wellies and you decide to stop off and have a cup of tea at a country pub, then you want something to make you feel good – a fabulous jumper is the way forward!

As always I have lots of New Years plans but getting out in the fresh air is a top priority, and if I get to spend time with the dog and the ones I love then it’s an added bonus! Walking doesn’t have to be old fashioned and frumpy, you can be warm, dry and still look fabulous!
