Walking in a Winter Wonderland

The winter weather has definitely arrived. Within the past month our weather has been up and down from the mid fifties all the way down to the teens. Needless to say I've needed a variety of winter shoes. I haven't needed to dress in business casual lately, so my outfits have all been on the more casual side of the spectrum.  While I'm home I like to wear slippers because our puppies are constantly getting water all over the floor, so these keep my feet warm and dry. 

Something that makes the cold more bearable is having warm feet.  My solution for this are my bean boots. They are fashionable and practical for the chilly weather too.  They are adorable when paired with jeans, dresses, skirts, athleisure, and leggings. The versatility is what makes them one of my go to shoes during the winter. 

Hunter boots are an essential year round in my wardrobe. As long as you wear warm socks, they keep your feet pretty dry and warm. I've heard that adding the liners makes a big difference too.  I wear these when it is raining outside and they definitely don't disappoint. I chose to get mine in a color because on dreary days we all need a little pick me up, and surprisingly my pair of red hunters seem to match with quite a lot. Lately, these have been my shoes to take the puppies out too.  

Riding boots are another staple on my winter shoes rack. They make a casual outfit look a little cuter and are comfortable.  I love pairing them with a pair of black leggings, oversized sweater, and blanket scarf.  This light brown pair and black pair are two of my favorites. 

On warmer days I opt for a lower cut boot, otherwise known as a bootie.  My parents bought me these for Christmas, and I have been loving them! So far my outfits have been pairing them with cuffed jeans, cute tops, and cardigans.  It's been a little chilly, even on warmer days, so I have also been pairing them with fun printed socks. 

What are your go to shoes in the winter?


  1. I am swooning over those Sam Edelman booties! I've been really into the athlesuire look lately, haha. I wear sneakers and slip-on sneakers everywhere!

  2. Those boots all look so cute! I have to admit that I really like the idea of those moccasins right now, hehe. ;)

  3. I've always hated winter boots, I always thought they were so clunky so I've always worn regular booties but for some reason I'm all about the LL Bean boots this year!

  4. I love boots! I so want a pair of Hunter boots and I love the Sam Edelman Petty boots! So cute!

  5. I love the LL Bean moccasins! So cute and comfy! I love any chelsea boots because they come up higher on your ankle and provide you with a little more protection from the elements.
