I am learning very quickly that dog walking requires a wardrobe of it’s own. You need to have sensible shoes, clothes that are waterproof & easily washed, as well as having lots of pockets. I also hate changing my clothes throughout the day, so whatever I put on in the morning has to keep me warm throughout the day. It’s a whole other world for me to dream about! So here are a few things that I need (Note – need! They are essential items!) in my wardrobe this Summer. So far I have the sandals and the jeans – just keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t need new glasses at my opticians appointment next week then I’m getting the Joules jacket!
I tried this on at Burford Garden Company last weekend & it fits like a glove. It’s really thin, which is perfect for summer showers. Plus blue is my favourite colour!
I have finally bought a pair of jeans that aren’t bootcut. Yep. I’m no fashionista! I dress for warmth & comfort! But as I’m not a massive fan of shorts, I thought these would be great when out walking with Poppy when it’s warmer. Lighter than my regular jeans, but great for tucking into wellies when it’s raining.
I have been a Birkenstock girl for many years. But I think it’s time for a change. Poppy walks quite fast so I need a sandal that stays on my foot by itself & I love the retro look of these sandals. I hate having hot feet so when the weather was really nice (remember that?!) wearing trainers wasn’t an option so I found a pair of these in the right size & bought them. Then the weather turned so I’m hoping it won’t be long before the sun comes back so I can try them out! They are obviously popular as Clarks have removed them from their website & when I contacted them about sizes, they told me that they’d sold out of them in most sizes!
Do you have specific clothes for walking the dog? Or maybe a few Summer wish-list items of your own? I’d love to know!
