Winter has been terrible pretty much everywhere (except maybe California), and I’ve joined the many who are just effing tired of it. However, I’m not a big fan of the hot sticky humid summers either, so I would still take this winter over the Australian heatwave every time. I’m trying to remember that so I stop whingeing.
I’m still protesting winter with hot pink though. We need the pop of bright colour to cheer us up.

I intended to get through the rest of winter with the boots I have, but winter isn’t going away and I needed some new ones fast. It’s damn near impossible to find winter boots in my size in February (even more so now with an apparent boot shortage on the East Coast), but I fit kid’s sizes so I had a few choices. I didn’t want them to scream little girl though, unlike my first attempt:
I ordered these online where they didn’t look nearly as glittery, but when I got them I knew I couldn’t pull them off. I can’t. I just can’t. I’m not a 5-year-old girl.
Still, hooray for small feet (I wear a size 6 women’s and got a size 5 youth, which is the equivalent to 6.5-7) and paying half the price of adult Sorels.
I was trying to make do for the rest of the winter in these old furry North Face boots that my sister gave me, but they’re leaking and I end up with wet feet.
There’ll be a few more weeks of dressing like this, unfortunately.
But on the plus side, a few more weeks of prettiness.
