It’s very simple… if my feet are comfortable, I am comfortable. This time of year, that means keeping them warm. I want to share two of my secrets with you so you and your feet can be cozy too!
I love boots, but what’s funny is that many aren’t lined. For some reason, the Crocs Cobbler Ankle Boot caught my eye. One afternoon right before Christmas, I was rather cranky about my cold feet, so I ordered a pair. I’ve hardly taken them off since they arrived.
Because it was barely into double digits (F) when I left the house this morning, I added another secret weapon… Legacy Legwear Fleecy Tights. They are thicker than your average tights (think… leggings?), but you get a thin layer of fleece against your skin and normal enough looking tights on the outside. They remind me more of the tights I wore as a school girl than the opaque hosiery I wear these days.
I’ll tell you another secret. I order boots & athletic shoes 1/2 size larger than my normal size so I can wear hand-knit socks (boots)or really thick, hiking socks (both).
And yes, if you’re doing the math, that means I’m wearing a sweater dress today… with a cotton-wool shell underneath that! Contrary to popular belief, sometimes wearing a dress IS the warm way to go. Plus, I almost feel like I’m in my jammies, so what’s not to love on a Monday morning when the rest of the country is on holiday and I’m working?
What are your stay-warm secrets?
