Getting Booted

{Riding/Rain Boots: c/o Melissa Shoes Lincoln Road. Leggings: Lululemon. Sweater: Gap. Photographed by me.}

Clearly, I brought the cold back with me from my vacay. This throwback Thursday boot pic from Breckenridge, Colorado became less of a flashback and more of a fashion must this week when the temps in Miami plummeted. It’s so cold, I actually turned the AC off and debated hitting the heater in the on position. What I most love about the jelly boots from Melissa Shoes, specifically the new permanent store on Lincoln Road, is that they transition from riding boot to rain bootie with the flip of a few snaps. And they were on super mega sale, too, with an additional 20 percent off. While the need for warm boots won’t stick around in Miami for much longer, the fact that they transition into a rain bootie means I’ll be wearing them more often than not when the wet season descents on the Sunshine State.

Bonus feature: I was able to cram not one, but two pairs of wool socks into these roomy boots to keep my toes toasty. Stomp on that.
