Do Yourself A Favor

Do yourself a favor today and treat yourself to a pair of Bogs boots, especially if you spend a lot of time in the barn or outside during these cold winter months. I bought my mom a pair last year for Christmas and she absolutely loves them. So, this year I asked for a pair from my mother-in-law, which she so kindly obliged and gave them to me over the weekend when we had our Christmas party. I wore them all day yesterday in the barn (it was a cold, rainy day) and was so unbelievably impressed with them.

They are 100% waterproof, insulated, super lightweight and comfortable. It felt like I was wearing comfy, squashy tennis shoes that kept my feet dry and toasty. They have a true non-slip outsole which I tested out on wet concrete and in the wash rack. They also did amazing splashing in thick mud puddles. A true all-around winter barn boot that you will cherish! Available online at Zappos.com.

Available in a few colors and patterns as well as a high-top and mid-top version.

Cozy Toes

I am totally in love with my new Ugg boots that arrived on my doorstep less than 24 hours after I ordered them from Zappos (if you haven’t heard, Zappos does free overnight shipping). The Ugg Classic Cardy Tall Boots are like wearing a warm cozy sweater on your feet. They wrap your legs in a warm, wooly, crochet knit and snuggle your feet on a bed of cozy sheepskin. Three oversized wood buttons allow the boots to be worn up, slouched down, slightly unbuttoned or completely cuffed down. They look cute worn with leggings, skinny jeans or boot leg jeans. Pure bliss for your toes! Available at www.zappos.com and www.uggaustralia.com.

Up On A Platform

I recently had a fashion company fall pretty hard from the platform that I put it on. I have constantly drooled over every pair of Louboutins I saw, hoping, dreaming and wishing I would soon own a pair of these gorgeous red-soled pieces of art. My husband surprised me with a gorgeous pair of Louboutins for my birthday and I was instantly in love until I slipped them on my feet. They were achingly uncomfortable and hard to walk in (I have been walking in heels since I was a little kid, when I would steal them from my mom’s closet) and just knew I would have to send them back. So after two weeks of repeatedly trying them on and hoping they would get more comfortable I made the sad decision to send them back.

But all is not lost, I have discovered two amazing pairs of shoes that mimic the look of Louboutins, minus the red soles but they fit better and are way more comfortable. If you are Louboutin fan but don’t like how they fit or can’t afford the ridiculous price tag check out the Platswoon and the Peekpump by Stuart Weitzman. Both styles are super elegant, well designed, wear with anything shoes that you can walk in! Available at www.zappos.com.

Pretty Pumps

I was recently happily introduced to Poetic Licence shoes by way of one of my favorite local shoe boutiques. Poetic Licence shoes are sexy, with a decidedly edgy-whimsical feel, unique embellishments and details add to their charm. Poetic Licence shoes are not for the faint of heart, they are meant to make a statement, the kind of shoes you build your outfit around. These shoes allow you to keep your outfit simple and let your shoes do the talking, or walking in this case! Available online at www.zappos.com.

Tote It Around

Leave it to Kate Spade to create the cutest summer tote bags. The Kate Spade Jitney tote comes in 4 cheerful colors each with their own summer motif. These practical totes are a cheerful choice for the beach or pool and the deep bucket shape lets you pack in all your summer essentials. Available at www.zappos.com. If you want one of these totes I would suggest acting quickly, they seem to be sold out on  most websites that carry Kate Spade!
