Cute To Boot

Pin It

tara-lipinski-winter-boots-in-postI’m eagerly anticipating my trip to the US Figure Skating Championships in St. Paul, Minnesota later this week – although I may have been slightly more mentally prepared a few minutes ago before I checked the weather. Anytime I see a ‘-‘ sign in front of a number, I get nervous. But hey, New York finally had their first snowfall and we’re already deep into January. If I hadn’t been preparing for winter before, it’s time. Winter’s not coming – it’s here.

 One thing I like to invest in every year is a great pair of winter boots. Now I’m no snow bunny, but I definitely appreciate the comfort and warmth that comes with this footwear. And lately, I find there are enough cute styles that you don’t have to compromise fashion for function. Here’s some of my faves for the season:

1. Joie Delyth Boots:

If you’re looking at a more mild winter (fingers crossed), these Joie boots are perfect for cold weather hikes and a little bit of slush. They remind me of the classic LL Bean Boot, but with a little pop of color.

2. Aquatalia Callie Faux-Shearling Boots:

A wedge is a good compromise for a winter heel and these Aquatalia boots delivery on both height and style. They’re in waterproof suede too which is a must.

3. Sorel Tivoli High Winter Boots:

I love Sorel’s whole line of tall winter boots. They’re cuts are narrow so they never look clunky and they come in a huge range of colors and patterns. Did I mention they are on SALE too?

4. The North Face ThermoBall Utility:

If you’re looking to go for a serious stroll through the snow, these North Face boots have been designed for heat retention, ice gripping, water resistance, ortho-comfort AND style. I’m also loving the unique galaxy print.

5. Michael Kors Hawthorne Ankle Booties:

These booties from Michael Kors might not be the most practical pair on this list but they are definitely up for the cutest. I’d be more on a slippery side street in these heels than my stilettos!

6. UGG Mini Bailey Bow:

What list of boots would be complete without a nod to the much beloved, and polarizing, UGG? I’ll just never get enough of these comfy, classic boots.

Stay warm out there friends!
