Welcome to my weekend! For this sort of weather, you can usually find me in jeans, a striped tee or plaid shirt, booties or boots, and this vest. It's perfect for everything from being chauffeur taking Emerson to classes and birthday parties, to racing around a mall for a specific item, to visiting friends or stopping by the local pub for a drink with my sister. I really like this shirt from Foxcroft; it's not flannel but cotton for nicer drape and a better fabric to layer with or tuck in (this shirt with its fine red lines through the plaid would look adorable with a red wool or black leather pencil skirt for the holidays). Foxcroft is my go-to for button-front shirts because I always find they accommodate my bust and arms and the quality is stellar (I have white shirts five years old I still wear regularly).
When you have wide calves, it can be really hard to find decent tall boots. If they fit, they're made of crappy materials or have weird details that make them look cheap or cheesy. Or else they cost 50 kazillion dollars and have a sketchy return policy. I regularly stalk 6pm.com for wide calf boots on sale and they never fail me. I got these boots from Fitzwell… last year? The year prior? Anyway, I snagged them for less than $75 and they're real leather and really comfortable. They have a pretty extensive selection of tall boots 16″ shaft circumference and wider. They have free shipping for orders over $50 and while you're responsible for return shipping fees, I think it's a fair trade for the great prices (almost always cheaper than anywhere else online). Usually they only have 30 days for returns, but right now with the holidays, they're having an extension through February. Not just for wide calf boots, I've also gone to 6pm for sneakers for the whole family if I don't care about getting the latest and greatest, scored Em light-up Sketchers and Karl size 14 Birkenstocks there for nice prices. Newp, post isn't sponsored by 6pm, this is more of a PSA!

Love this look!
Last year I needed new black boots after destroying my cheap pair after 3 winters. I found a brand called Blondo at Nordstrom. Leather and treated to be waterproof, they were not cheap but I love them, they are comfortable and looked great all winter. I ordered a second pair in brown this year. They have wide calf sizes on their site and I got my second pair at zappos so easy returns and exchanges. Like you I live in my boots all fall and winter so I took the plunge on an expensive pair and do not regret it
