Practical




Coat: Michael by Michael Kors (old similar here) // Sweater: BCBG (old) // Hat: Gap (sold out, but similar from ASOS here) // Glasses: OASAP // Boots: Sorel Tivoli // Jeans: J. Brand 620 // Gloves: Old navy (old)

I am a lover of shoes and used to wear my ballet flats or heels as long as I could into winter. I would have my poor husband crank the heat up in the car to keep my feet warm. Now that I am a Mom and am running after a little one I find myself outdoors much more. That being said, it is time to say good bye to the ballet flats in winter. I purchased these Sorel Boots at the end of last season and wasn't sure I would wear them. After I saw Elle Macpherson rocking a similar style and looking amazingly chic I committed to wearing them and can not say enough about how much I am loving these practical boots! They are super warm and waterproof. I also scored them on sale, and bought the youth version so I was able to get them under $50.00. I am a size seven so easily fit into a youth 5.5-6.

The whole point of this blog is to show outfits that are stylish but practical for moms or suburban women on the go.  So, it may not be the most original or fashion forward look, but it is a way to stay warm and still feel a little put together?

What do you wear when the temps plummet? What are your favorite practical winter shoes?

  1. I'm exactly the same about wearing my flats and heels as long as I can into Winter! I hate boots. I usually run around in my Uggs in the Winter but these Sorels are so cute. I bought a pair a few years ago but they were so big and clunky... I found them really heavy and uncomfortable. These ones look so much lighter. Maybe I need to buy a new pair! LOL
