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!

  1. It’s all about the wellies for me. We live near Port Meadow, so they’re perfect for the mud, tall grass, and horse/cow mess! A good jacket for wind & showers, and trousers I don’t mind wiping muddy hands on (from throwing sticks, slobbery balls, and the like) and I’m set.

    • Absolutely! Got a decent pair of joules wellies last year which have come in handy. I recently got some toasty warm welly socks from Toft, which a perfect. Think the jeans will work with both, as tucking bootcut jeans into wellies is not easy!
