It never fails – The one thing that holds me back from getting ready and going out during the winter months is my lack of weather appropriate shoes. Because I know I can’t be the only one with this issue, I share with you…
Frosty Footwear 101
(what to wear, when and with what)
First up are these snow stunnas! If you’re like me, you’ve awaken to a winter wonderland a few times already this season and haven’t had shoes that’ll keep your toes warm enough to hang outside for a while AND be picture perfect when getting the infamous snow snap with your significant other!
These are your boots, girls! They’re similar to the Sorel brand in fashion and function, but half the price and equally as cute! Wear them with all black and a faux fur hooded jacket and you’re neighbors will think a celeb moved in next door!
I’ll admit it – I took hiking as an easy elective in college. BUT who would have guessed… I fell in love with it! My husband and I are on a mission to find the most scenic mountain tops around the world, and you better believe we’re taking another picture, especially if the view is covered in snow!
You know what that means – cute and practical hiking boots. I LOVE these new winter white/pink ones from Cole Haan. They’re so much fresher than the typical earth tone adventure boots!
Heading out for the night and don’t want to slip on your stilettos – I don’t blame you! Invest is a nice pair of leather boots with a thick heel. They’ll go with anything your black pumps would have. 🙂
This is my go to pair! They’re super sophisticated and I always get compliments on them!
A few tips – Look for boots with tread. This is critical if you’ll be battling winter sidewalk conditions. Also, see if your sales associate can recommend (or better yet, provide) a good leather protectant. You always want to treat your leather with a water and stain protectant spray before wearing. You can usually find these right by the register.
Another thing to invest in is this shoe care kit from Clarks Outlet. I use this leather conditioner once or twice during the winter to keep my boots looking healthy.
