The DIY Playbook Style Series – Outdoor Boots
We were really lucky to have an abnormally warm fall season, but our luck has run out and the chill is definitely in the air.
While there hasn’t been much snow yet, we know that it’s just around the corner. As lifelong Chicagoans, we’re both very used to it and we know how to bundle up and dress for the cold. Coats, gloves, hats, and winter boots are the norm around here and today we want to chat all about what we put on our feet during this time of the year.
Today’s Winter Staple: Outdoor Boots
We both have Hunter boots and Sperry Duck Boots and this boot combo keeps our feet warm & dry all season long. Let’s first dive into our Hunter boots…
Hunter Rain/Snow Boots
We both have black matte Hunter boots that we’ve had for YEARS and even though they’re a bit pricey, they were such a great investment.
They’re great for snow, but we also wear them for rain & even just as a casual look on the weekends. If you’re going to wear them in the snow then you’ll definitely want to get some boot socks to go with them, because your toes can get pretty chilly without them.
If there isn’t any snow, then Hunter boots sans boots socks work well too! Love this outfit on Bridget for a casual weekend look.
Now onto another favorite winter boot…
Sperry Duck Boots
These are our second winter staples and we both wear our Sperry’s all.season.long. Seriously, can’t survive a Chicago winter without these bad boys.
They’re really warm on the inside, and waterproof on the outside, making them the ideal all-weather shoe.
Bridget has light brown ones and I have these black ones, but there are so many cute colors to choose from! We may both be adding to our arsenal this season.
