Happy Monday after Christmas my dear Let's Talk Stylers.
I hope you received all of the stylish items featured on your wishlists. I scored with a cashmere sweater, a cozy plaid perfectly fitted flannel shirt, a naughty not nice nightgown, a sexy anklet, and a fistful of cold hard gift card cash. I also found a fashionable Blythe doll in my stocking to add to my collection, because everyone knows that it isn't really Christmas if a) you don't get at least one childish toy to play with or b) alienate at least one drunken relative.
Everyone else is still on Christmas break, waking up to their bacon and eggnog breakfasts and still partaking in all of their reindeer games. I am at work, but that's okay, because I have Michigan on my mind.
I leave in 48 hours and am still questioning everything that I've packed. My newest concern is that my staple Steve Madden boots don't have the proper treading to keep me upright on Michigan's snow lined streets. I'm ugh about Ugg's and despise those woolly mammoth boots that make young girls resemble Sasquatch, so I think I've found the perfect alternative. The Duck Boot.
You've seen them before. The classic navy rubber sole, water-snow-sleet-hail-resistant boots that have that certain quirky cozy cabin charm. Back in the day, these boots only came in one style and if you didn't dig that style, you were duck out of luck. Today there are dozens of ducky hybrids floating in the pond, all affordable priced at under one hundred quackers.
Go traditional with the Women's Canvas Duck Boots from Lands End Canvas
Trendy with these Pull On Duck Boots pictured above from FreePeople,
or whimsical with the Rubber Duck Reindeer Knit Snowjoggers from Asos.
I might buy all three so I can have all of my duck boots in a row.
