Out and a boot

So the first snow of the season happened today. And we survived. Phew.

But we know there's more to come.

After Snowpocalypse, we DC residents realized how important snow-worthy boots are. I love my Uggs (I don't care what anyone says, they are so comfortable and I LOVE THEM!), but they aren't very water resistant. Plus, I have decided I need to upgrade my look from college sorority girl to consummate professional. Don't worry -  I'll keep my Uggs for apres ski. (If you've never taken off ski boots and put on Uggs, you are missing out on one of life's great pleasures.)

I swore I was going to invest in some nice snow boots once they were on sale, but who wants to buy snow boots when the sun is coming out and flowers are blossoming? So I'm on the hunt again.

And gosh, is it hard to find cute, stylish boots that are practical for cold/snowy/wet/all-of-the-above conditions!

Sperry Top-Sider Hingham quilted shaft rain boots, available at Bloomingdales: $98

Sorel Joan of Arctic boots, available at Nordstrom: $129.95

adidas by Stella McCartney Galmei boot, available at Zappos: $161

MICHAEL Michael Kors Brandy snow tall weather boots, available at Saks: $224

Aquatalia by Marvin K. Icicle knee-high boot, available at Endless: $494.95

The good news is, with a warm, wooley sock, most rain boots can double as snow boots! So until I purchase the perfect snow boots, I'll use my herringbone wellies to ward away the chill.

Seriously, why is it so hard to be stylish in the winter?


  1. i will never give my uggs up either! :)

  2. I saw a woman today with boots similar to the Michael Kors ones and they were even cuter in person. I would never think of wearing such boots, but she made them look chic with a duffle coat and skinny jeans.
