As I’ve mentioned before, I run a little colder than most, so whenever I find an item of clothing that will keep me warm without it being obvious I’m cold, I get excited. Really excited. I embrace that items whole heartedly and have a small love affair with it.
Currently that love affair is with boots. I love boots. They keep my feet warm and dry while at the same time managing to make me look stylish. My favourite thing about boots is that I can wear the most daggy, warm, bed-type socks underneath and no one will ever know! It’s like wearing pyjamas under your clothes without looking like a lunatic.
I always liked boots growing up, but it wasn’t until flat books came in fashion and began to be designed in a way that didn’t make them look like large leather socks that my love affair truly began. I think I have managed to make it through the entirety of winter wearing jeans with boots about every second day.
I can even wear short sleeved tops in Spring and Autumn now! Wear it with a pair of jeans and boots and you’ll be warm whilst still looking like you’re not rugged up. Brilliant!
Oh boots, how I love thee.
