BRING IT ON

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.

Two pairs of boots, two pairs of trousers, what is the world coming to?!?! :)

I've just gotten a nice wool tweed coat with a furry liner and a black wool pea coat at a vintage shop in town, and just in time! It's been -9 C during my bike ride to work the last two days. I could really use some good boots though, my feet get really cold.

Those ones are a good balance of functional and elegant, it seems - and they go well with the tweed :)

Looks like those winter boots still have a heel. Some things haven't changed, eh?

Gorgeous winter shoes! Talking about old skiing shoes, when I was a kid my aunt used to have old white leather skiing shoes with red lacing. I always admired them and wanted to have similar. Now I have actually seen in magazines highheeled shoes that are designed to the style of those old skiing shoes. I wish I could get one pair of those...

tweed pants are forever one of my absolute favorite things. :)

I love your new shoes. My favorite are shoes with such lacing and a firm heel. Sometimes I feel that here in case you find a nice pair of winter shoes, there are plenty of those same shoes walking around in the city.

They do have an old-fashioned ski boot look. Cool!

But . . . I need to see the heel . . . a side view . . . and some commentary about the very large zipper on side of boot!

but girl, from where I stand, these boots go together with tweed in an absolutely flawless manner!

These boots really make sense. And they remind me of the time I was wearing long brown suede lace-up boots (with no side zippers )and entering Paris from the De Gaulle airport in the middle of a security scare. I was made to take them off in front of a frowning queue of annoyed would-be passengers. I tried to tell the guard it would take ages to undo those laces but hey, he just looked me up & down & said there was no rush. I could just imagine what the other people were saying to my back!

Melancholic Optimist : Those jackets sound nice! And minus nine, whoah, I canät bike when it's that cold, my head can't take it even if wearing a cap!

Rhia : Oh yeah that sound good, hope you find some!

Nanile : True, but nowadays I don't care to have the same item as a lot of other people in town, as long as I combine it with my own stuff, that I like, it still appears different :)

Anonymous : Well I could do without the zipper :)

Fairy Filigree : Oh no, that's a fun anecdote now afterwards but must have been rather painful back then...

eva said...

Are those boots from DinSko? I think I have a similar pair :) They're very comfortable for walking and I quite like the shape and the lacing, but I really wish they didn't have that zipper... ^^

Can you please show us what you are wearing up top? I always feel so Butch when I wear trousers/pants. etc. I need your guidance from afar. I'm guessing you did cute little blous and cardi combo?

Lovely shoes - want them.
