Competition - Haviana Rainboots!


A little while ago I remember reading about the launch of the new Havianas Rainboots at Selfridges, and I remember thinking what a good idea that was! It is pretty much the flipside of the traditional Haviana flipflop if you will - flipflops for sun and wellies for rain!

Whether you need a pair of wellies for a festival this summer, or simply the British weather (I am so punny today!) I love all the fun colours, as well as the traditional green, and I think they'd add a really cool quirky twist to a wet weather outfit.

So what is all this building up to? Well, Havianas have generously offered to give me a pair of wellies to give away to one reader in celebration of their rain or shine festival!

To enter simply comment on this post and describe your perfect festival outfit.

As always for an extra entry you can tweet about the competition too. Simply copy and paste the following tweet:

Have you entered @wherisharriet 's competition yet? You could win a pair of Haviana Rainboots!

Don't forget to include your email address and very importantly your shoe size in the comment. The competition is open until 30 June 2011, and international readers can enter too - so dry toes are possible for all! I will pick the winner randomly.

Please note: this is a sponsored post. I don't usually do them but I thought this competition was too good to miss!

My perfect festival outfit would be high waisted acid wash denim cut offs with a tassled crop top and lace waistcoast with black peter pan collar. Obviously, a string of flowers in my hair and wellies!

International readers welcome? Count me in. I want wellies too! I'd wear mine with a ditsy floral dress and an old Barbour jacket. And red knee high woollen socks!

It is highly vital that I win these boots, what with all my festival going this summer!

I can't be doing with the traditional floral dress twee festival cliches (despite being super twee myself) and as someone who is in it for the music comfort is my priority. My basics this season will be my amazing leopard print peg leg trousers with a simple black vest for day, and a huge chunky cardi for when it gets colder at night. A massive scarf is a must (for keeping warm, sitting on, tying in your hair) and a tote bag packed full of useful things like umbrellas, cameras and secreted booze. Obviously ;) xx

my perfect festival outift would be a flower headband, with one of my homemade ditsy print floral dresses, which i would put pockets in to make sure i kept all my important things from getting lost!
I'd also need a rain coat and have the perfect pink floppy hat to go with these amazing bootS!
Ny shoe size is uk7. and ihave tweeted = @dinoprincesschr

For me nothing beats a pair of denim shorts for rain or shine, with a pair of jazzy tights underneath. I can't be without my beaded flower navy blue top for festivals, the cream beaded daisies are just so cute! Finished off with a pair of wellies or boots with a wide top to fit my phone in, you never know when you need to take a pic of someone's festival chic outfit!

Shoe size UK 4

Ooh! My festival outfit consists of:

A maxi skirt, an old band tee, a denim waistcoat lashings of red lippy and some glitter for my cheeks!

The brown swirly ones they make are gorgeous!

I'll be spending 3 days dancing in the fields near my home at Strawberry Fields Festival, so my outfits have to be simple and practical!
For me the perfect outfit is brown herringbone tweed shorts with a blue bibbed top tucked in, hair in a messy bun with plaits & little daisy grips to tuck away the loose strands. Then some super-light tights with a cute pattern (polka dots!), wellies & a nice boy to hold my stuff for me (well, I can't dance with a bag... ;D).

I wear a UK 5, & am about to Tweet too (I'm @cello_tape). My email is ! :)

Have always wanted a pair of these -they're supposed to be really comfy and the colours are so appealing. xx

I SO need wellies with this constant rain! I've never been to a festival but I guess shorts, a t-shirt, a sweater and havaianas (clever, hm?!) would be perfect.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh, forgot - I'm a size 5.5.

Filipa said...

What a great idea for a giveaway Harriet! I'm not going to enter, cuz I don't really wear wellies so I'm gonna let others have a better chance, but I'll retweet you :)

Mel Wiggins said...

Oooh! Wellies! How lovely! Living in Northern Ireland where it rains pretty much 80% of the summer makes them top of the festival outfit list! Pair them (pun intended) with bright knee socks, a fun retro rock and roll graphic tee, a biiiiiiig wooly cardi, a pair of comfy Jean cutoffs, raybans and a boat hat and bob's your uncle! Practical and chic!

Just gonna tweet about it here...@melwiggins

Oooh amazing comp, I'm not entering as I am not going to any festivals this year but I noticed the Haviana concession in the Birmingham Selfridges today, it's so colourful!

what a fab competition. I just bought myself some wellies at Bicester village so I let someone else win these pretty ones :)

Can't wait to see you on Saturday. I hope it doesn't rain.
I want to wear a summer dress.

Jeys said...

Rachel said...

I've never actually been to a festival before, but I should imagine that I'd wear skinny jeans (faded), wellies, a baggy band tee and a Barbour jacket! (I'm thinking Glastonbury here!)

Steph said...
