We're half way through festival season and I've had my one festival experience of the summer - at the magical Port Eliot in Cornwall where the sun shone all weekend THANK GOD. However last year when it rained I was smugger-than-smug in my beloved green rose-print wellies.

My beloved rose-printed wellies

When Kate Moss was spotted strutting around Glasto in denim hotpants, waistcoat and Hunters, the humble wellington boot was elevated from country set staple to town mouse fashion accessory. But whether they're in vogue or not, we will always rely on our wellies to keep the filth and slime at bay when at festivals. So I want to see pics of you in your boots please. The muddier the better would be great and I will put them all into a gallery to celebrate our intrepid 'mustn't grumble' spirit and the humble galvanized rubber footwear that makes it possible to enjoy the 'great' British summer without getting trenchfoot.

There will be a PRIZE too but we haven't worked out the details of that yet, so just start sending your pictures to phoebe@xojane.com and I'll update the competition details as soon as we have more information.
