Winter layers...

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Battling the elements in winter when you're a blogger is something you could moan about forever. It's especially bad in the UK, but even worse  in Ireland!  The temperatures this winter haven't been too bad, which is nice after 'the worst winter we've ever seen' being forecast. The bigger issue for me this winter is the lack of light - it's pretty much grey all day long.

These photos were taken at the weekend before Dave & I went menu tasting for our wedding food! YUM! :)

I never thought Id go for knee high boots. I always considered myself an ankle boot girl through and through.  Since I got these sheepskin lined leather boots from Ugg Australia however, I haven't stopped wearing them. They are great when the weather is bad and you want a bit more protection from the elements & they also look great with skinny jeans tucked into them. I'm definitely converted!

  1. Those are the best looking Ugg boots I've ever seen!

  2. You look so wonderful and snug and cosy Vicki! x


  3. This is such a stylish way to beat the winter weather, Vicki!
    It's funny, I feel like 'the worst winter ever' is forecast every single year - ha!
    We've been having fairly mild weather here, as well. I'm still hoping for a white Christmas but I don't think it will happen.
    Have a beautiful day, girl!

  4. I always liked ankle boots best too, but I like higher boots if they come up to just about at the knee. I tend to look stumpy in ones that hit mid calf. These ones you have on are great! I really love how cozy your coat/cardigan hybrid looks too. Your pink sweater is such a pretty color on you too.

  5. I'm not really a fan of Ugg boots; I saw a video recently about the way the boots are made and it put me off them. I know what you mean about layering up, we haven't got it that cold here and it's a bit tricky figuring out what to wear as you're never sure what the weather is going to do. I was hoping for snow but it doesn't look like we'll have any :(

  6. Those boots look so warm and cosy! Perfect for this horrible winter
