C'mon Boots

I currently live in black leggings, long tops + cardigans and my UGG boots. I know I know, I too hate the way they look, but without them my feet are miserably cold so I've grown to ignore the fact that they make my feet look like two giant loafs of bread.

Unfortunately I have a bad habit of stuffing my boots with my jeans (pre-pregnancy of course - I haven't put on a pair of jeans since November) and forcing the zipper shut. The boots are clearly not made to tolerate calves bigger than a forearm let alone an extra thick wad of denim... therefore I've managed to bust the zipper on my last two pairs of UGGs (most recent one occurred two days ago). Worst part? I vow to take them into the shoe repair shop but it never happens. Instead I log on to my favorite online shoe palace Zappos and irresponsibly purchase new ones. Zappos I love you + you rock with the overnight shipping hookup.

Do I feel guilty? Not so much. My wardrobe has slowly transformed itself into leggings and old cardis, so bring on the shoes damn it!!

That's my uniform of choice as well. Long cardigans, though, so no one stares at my butt when I wear leggings. I would totally wear the same thing every day...if I didn't have to go to work.

Niiiiice! You know I love the uggs( I don't care what folks say) :) And somehow you always manage to make them look fetching! I am NOT kidding! :)

I remember my old boss at work laughed his head off for an indecently long time the first time I walked into the studio with my ugg-style boots on. He said I looked like a bear. I don't wear them any more, but you are right, they are very warm!
