heels vs boots

don’t worry, these were not taken during the recent freezing temp….just during the cold temps! Hah

the heels are for the office

thumbs up for boots 

Coat: ℅ SheInside (another great option – on sale + addl 40% off!)

Sweater: J.Crew Factory – old (love this one) (other great option here)

Jeans: Banana Republic – old (similar here, here)

Pumps: DSW – old (similar here, here, here) (how cute are these)

Boots: Uggs – old (available here)

Bag: J.Crew – old (cute options here, here, here)

Don’t think that I prance around in heels during winter. Because I don’t! 

 But do I wear heels in winter? Yes, I do. Mainly with skirts (and tights)…in and out of the car kinda thing. 

I used to wear them to the office during winter…and ruined a few pairs thanks to the rock salt. But then, I came to my senses and started wearing boots and switched up to heels at the office. 

That’s when the-unnecessary-ruining-of-my-heels-ended. 

 But if you go bare feet in winter time, I’m not judging. What ever works for you, go for it!  😉

Have yourself a fabulous Thursday!

    Love this look and love both with heels and boots!! I actually have these Ugg boots and absolutely love them, not to mention they are super warm and I like them much better than the original boot that everyone else has.xo,Sincerely Miss Ash

    You are so darn cute! I wear heels in the winter and often get some weird looks. But I'm like you – I do it with tights most of the time. PS how fun is that shirt?!? If you lived in Omaha, I think we'd be besties. 😉

      They're so worth it, especially since they're waterproof too. The quality is not the greatest but for the price that's exactly what I expected. Typical for a very inexpensive items (it seems tiny bit snug, so their sizing is a little off).

    Cute casual look! That coat looks great on you. I ordered the same one and I adore it the color is so beautiful but it's a lil' too snug 🙁

      Thank you! 🙂 Their sizing is odd, it definitely runs small (another coat I got I can barely fit in :/
