So today I had a dentist appointment and figured since it’s only a short 3-minute walk over there I could do without my gloves and my wool cap (OK, truth be told; I was in a hurry and couldn’t find them… again). But as soon as I stepped out I regretted my decision almost instantly. It was so darn cold! The harsh wind froze my fingers to my face and even though it was only a very short distance it felt like I had to walk for hours to get to the dentist. An absolutely torturous experience! All I could think of is to get home asap and crawl under my cozy blanket with a hot chocolate. Brrrr! And the moral of my story of weather-inappropritae dressing: Prepare for the cold! Because it will come, eventually. Get shoes that’ll keep you warm in this bitter cold. Shoes like these amazing shearling-lined ankle boots by DV by Dolce Vita for example. L.O.V.E.

Peep-toe booties are admittedly not the most practical of all footwear. They’re too warm for summer and too cold for winter, but absolutely perfect for all kinds of weather in between those seasons. Another plus is that peep-toe booties tend to look less bulky than closed ankle boots. Giuseppe Zanotti was the first to start the military trend on shoes in the name of French fashion house Balmain and ever since so many army green, buckled, laced-up, combat-style booties have popped up. None of them quite matched these beauties here though….well, until today…

Before I start worshipping these Lanvin heels, can we please have a moment of silence first? ___________ Thanks. Seriously, how amazing are they? I love the smooth and rounded design. It’s such an elegant shoe with the chain adding some pizzazz into the mix. But the price, OMG!, look at that insane thing of a price! Even on sale it is waaay beyond what I could afford to pay for a pair of heels. Je suis trés desolé, Lanvin!

It’s been a while since Jeffrey Campbell really wowed with one of their designs, but their “Daisy D” bow wedges? Obsessed. Love them & want them in every color (how cute is the cheetah + blue/red version by the way?). I know some of you will waive them off as too retro, but I L.O.V.E. these. Well, Santa, if you aren’t too busy…

These badass Givenchy ankle boots would give an edge to any outfit. Who knew patchwork could look so chic? I’m loving the high shine of the studs and the small touch of gold.

Marciano “Symone” Open-toe Ankle Boots

While I love the killer Givenchy booties, their high price tag is bringing the pain, so we’ve found a similar pair for less than half the price. The Marciano version doesn’t have the same subtle gold detailing or gorgeous glossy studs. However, they still give off the same badass vibe with a touch of pewter and for under $250, I’ll take them.
