31 Days of Femininity: Keeping your feet covered in the winter time!
While I'm looking forward to wearing my long sleeve shirts and sweaters, I have to say I will be most sad to give up my sandals when cold weather hits!
Living in Missouri makes winters unpredictable. We always get snow, but some winters have been mild, others have been freezing cold for several months with loads of snow! What shoes I wear really depends on if there is snow on the ground or not.
I took a picture of my shoes that I wear during the winter. I will say I do not spend very much money on my shows at all. Several of these pairs of shoes were from my mom that I kept when she passed away last year. One pair of boots I picked up at a garage sale for $1.00! I really try to keep a look out at garage sales for shoes, as I don't like spending $50-60 on a pair of shoes. Thrift stores are also a great place to look, though I haven't found many in my size there.
Mary Jane Shoes
When there is not snow on the ground I wear my Mary Jane shoes with thicker socks. Even if there is snow I still normally wear these to church on Sunday's, and try to avoid any snow that has not been shoveled. :) The brown shoes are brand new, I just got on Zulily to replace some worn out brown Mary Jane shoes I had.
If it is really cold I will wear my warm snow boots even in the house during the day with a pair of thick socks. They keep me really warm, I just don't like how bulky they are. The thinner pair of taller boots are what I picked up at a garage sale, and they look really cute with a lot of outfits, plus I have enough room in them to wear a warm pair of socks. My sister has a pair of boots that come up high on her that she wears a lot in the winter time. She told me they keep her really warm, and she has trouble with circulation in her feet and staying warm.
I don't wear the low cut pair of boots very often, as they are not very comfortable for me. I think they look just fine with skirts though.
A lot of ladies seem to recommend wearing crocs in the winter that are fur lined. I have never worn these, but my midwife wears them all winter long as she says they are the only thing that keeps her feet warm. So if you are really searching for a solution, maybe try these with a pair of nice warm socks.
