Love Winter




It happened. We got our first dump of snow over the weekend and there was no easing into the cold weather, it was nice one day and then - BAM! - it was -15 degrees and I had to get out the winter wear while bawling uncontrollably, picturing how unbearably cold the next six months were going to be. Just kidding, I wasn't bawling I was only crying softly to myself ; ). I kid, I kid! Actually I have to say it was a little easier to accept fall was over once I put on my Love Winter Valenki boots which are so warm and cozy, not to mention stylish! Valenki boots are a new Canadian twist on a traditional 300-year-old Russian footwear design. And get this - they convert into comfortable wool felt boots just by slipping off the rubber galoshes so you can wear them outdoors AND indoors! How cool is that?! They actually make me excited for the cold weather. For real.

Wearing: jacket - Zara (last season), sweater - c/o LOFT,  jeans - JOE's, 
boots - c/o Love Winter, hat - LOST, scarf - Simons, socks - American Apparel

Stylist's Tip: Wear knee-high socks over your pants and under your boots for a stylish twist on a winter outfit!

I used to wear valenki as a kid in St.Petersburg. The blue galoshes is a nice touch, we only had black. But Oh My Lord, the price!!!! They used to be like 15 cents back then and mass produced. So funny that valenki would become a fashion trend (I hope they do, they are the perfect Uggs before the Uggs were invented).
