|I'd wear them, but not in snow.|
Maybe in the meantime I can find something cute. Which is really my problem. I struggle to find something cute that also serves any kind of function at all other than to adorn your feet with fabulousness.
@GlamB0t asked me on Twitter what are cute boots that are warm and can withstand snow and rain. After thinking and thinking (and struggling with this myself), I have come to the conclusion that the answer is they don't exist.
Sure, there's the Hunter heeled rain boot, which isn't awful, and you can add a liner to it for the instant snow boot, but that heel will send you right on your ass when there's an inch of ice on the ground that has been covered in snow.
Now we're on to something flat (already not that cute). There's real Hunters with the furry inserts, which many people swear by, but I can't get over the "I'm six-years-old" look of galoshes. Let's be serious, there's nothing glam about rubber boots.

We're just wiping UGGs off the list right now since they're expensive, hideous and not even waterproof. And I don't care if they're comfy and warm. So are my slippers, but you'll never see me wearing those in public.
|At least there's fur.|
So here I am in another Chicago winter (which can be a total bitch) without snow boots. I have a coat, hat, gloves, 4,000 scarves (thanks Mom), and they're all cute. Which is exactly why they don't get paired with boots made of plastic, plaid and doll parts, and my hunt for boots continues into another year.
Hopefully I can manage to put it all off for another few months, ride out the winter again, and not manage to lose any toes. Besides, the weather's already warming up this week.
