I have bought myself a pair of winter boots.
They feel quite robust compared to what I normally wear so I wasn't sure at first but then again they are winter boots , they are supposed to be a bit heavy. And they're still rather slim on the foot plus have a nice firm heel. Makes me think of old school skiing boots!
I also got myself a pair of warm tweed pants. (Pants! Me! Again! What's going on here? I guess I go both ways now, dresses skirts and pants...).
This makes me pretty well prepared for whatever winter has up it's sleeve this year. So bring it on I say, bring it on.
