My husband is not feeling well today – he drove me to the Metro, drove Emerson to my mom's house and I think has been spending the rest of the day either on the floor of the bathroom or in bed. So no pictures from him. So I decided to get bold and ask a coworker who knows about my blog to take my picture. This is me about 30 minutes ago in my office hallway, near the printer room. Don't you love how the Meetings Department gets the place looking all festive? They had that aerosol spray snow and a stencil of a snowman and a couple of flakes and sprayed it on all the windows of our office doors. Today is the all staff meeting – beforehand they had a catered lunch for us. PLUS today was the cookie exchange so there are sweet treats in pretty much every room and on every floor of our company. Whew, happy holidays!
When I bought these shoes, the salesperson said they were fantastic shoes for the winter because the grippy bottoms would be amazing in the snow. I almost said, “Are you on crack?” because who wears high-heeled peeptoe booties in the snow?
Me, that's who. This morning it snowed in the DC area – not a ton but unlike yesterday today's flurry stuck until the day warmed up. I walked to the Metro, and then to the office in snow, and peeptoe high-heeled booties. And that salesperson was right – I felt more secure on the ground in these than I did the other day in my black ankle booties or even in my DUO boots. As for the peeptoe, well as long as the snow isn't deep enough to get in the opening, it's not so bad. I didn't get hypothermia, in fact I was pretty comfortable in my super-thick Spanx tights and my super-warm Lands End luxe down parka!
Those booties!! They are so cute! I hope your man gets well soon!
Yay Jil! Let me know how it goes!
And Anon, that’s so great to hear! I agree, if these shoes came with a closed toe I would buy another color. If they were full-length boots… man I would be in trouble! Best purchase in a long time!
I bought the shoes based on your recommendation and they ARE so comfortable! I wish they had the same ones without the open toe and I’d buy another pair! Thanks.
I never would have thought to use the cowl like that! You’ve inspired me to check through my closet to see what uses for items I haven’t thought of yet to spruce up an old favorite.

I love your outfit, you look fantastic! I’ve got to find some cute dresses like that. 🙂
Thanks Shell! I never would have thought it, but I felt very sure on my feet all day!
I love this outfit! Congrats on the dress fitting again. I would of thought the shoe sales lady was crazy as well but good thing you can wear the shoes in snow, it shows you can still be fashionable even in a bunch of snow 🙂
