This weekend was a winter wonderland. I had no idea it was supposed to snow beyond a few flurries. My friend was coming out to Connecticut for the day and needless to say, our plans were put on the backburner. I couldn’t believe how much snow we got! I was so thankful for my Subaru– it drives so well in the snow. We quickly made the decision to get off the roads and go home.
I can suffer with a coat that’s not warm enough if I really want to wear it and I resist wearing gloves as much as I can because they annoy me… but I cannot stand having cold feet. I just can’t do it. When my feet are cold, it’s a matter of minutes before my entire body is covered in goosebumps from the chill.
I have a few go-to boots that I basically live in all winter long.
UGG Adirondack Waterproof Boot // I don’t have these myself, but they are a favorite of many of my friends. They’re a bit rugged looking yet look chic when paired with the right winter outfit.
Hunter Boots // These are not technically made for cold winter days, but I still love wearing mine. They’re probably my number one go to because they’re so easy to slip on. If it’s snowed, I always wear my thickest wool socks. They’re especially great when you’re going over to someone’s house, and you know you’re going to kick off your boots in the mudroom. No laces to worry about!
Sorel Waterproof Riding Boot // When I did a photoshoot with Sorel and Teen Vogue a few years ago. I thought this style was my least favorite (to be completely honest), but they ended up being the pair that I wore the most often. Incredibly comfortable. Warm enough for cold days, but not uncomfortably hot if you go inside. I swear by them.
Shearling-Lined Bean Boots // My Bean Boots are not shearling-lined… and I wish they were. Right now I pair mine with super thick wool socks, but I can’t help but think of how cozy this pair must be!
Sperry for J. Crew Boots // I get a lot of questions about what kind of boots to wear to work when it’s snowing or when there’s snow on the ground. This would be the pair I’d go for. The black is sleek enough to go with your work clothes, and the boots are small enough to hide under your desk. (Plus the zipper on the side makes them easy take them off and put them on.
Water Resistant UGG Boots // True story, I wear my UGG boots in the snow even though they’re not made for it. I love the idea of having water resistant UGG boots for those extra snowy days.
