How do I Wear That Wednesday: Winter Boots for Work and Date Night

Last week I took to Instagram to get some feedback from you all about how I could better serve you through this blog. The three main takeaways were 1) start doing hair tutorials again 2) do more beauty and makeup posts 3) start a series answering your fashion questions.

The main reason I started this blog was for my girlfriends, and for a creative outlet for me. I often had friends coming to me with questions about what to wear for a certain occasion, how to style a piece of clothing, or looking for a recommendation on a certain product or piece. With that in mind, I am starting up the series “How do I Wear That Wednesday”. Each week I will pick one item or category to talk about and will either show you a few ways you would style a piece of clothing or, like this week, will show you options for pieces to help you solve a fashion problem.

This weeks focus is on practical, and stylish, winter footwear to take you through your day, and this season. Over the holidays I had a handful of conversations with friends and family about the struggle to find fashionable footwear in the winter. This is something I am challenged with every year and I feel that over the years I have found some really good solutions to this problem.

I searched through a number of sites to compile my favouite boots that are stylish, waterproof, and affordable (under $300 – I think a good pair of boots is worth the investment). Here are my top picks:

Of all the boots I own, these quilted Hunter boots are definitely my favourite ones. They were worth every penny and will be worn many, many more times.
