Fir and Fur

This past weekend was freezing! For me it was a not so subtle reminder that winter boot season is nearly here. I live in flats and heels almost year round but some days are just too cold for it, especially when there is snow on the ground. I was tempted to stay indoors but figured it would be good to get a little fresh air. I bundled up and took my new Durbarry boots out for a walk through the lake. I read that they were water repellant so I wanted to put them to the test. Surprisingly my feet were completely dry when I got out of the lake. The water beaded off and I didn’t even have to take my boots off at the door. I was more than impressed with this. I would definitely recommend these boots for the snow and slush ahead. The fur liners are also another must have. I bought them last winter and they not only keep my feet really warm but also look great with all of my boots. I love wearing them with my Hunter boots (last shown here). 

On a side note how cute is this mini Christmas tree from Trader Joe’s?

    I've never heard of those boots before! They would be perfect for slushing around the snowy streets of Boston!

    Love the plaid top! I've always wanted to buy a colored jacket and this inspires me to try again. Thanks for sharing those boots. I'm always looking for style+quality.

    Gonna be nit-picky here: the brand is 'Dubarry' without the 'r' in the middle. Great, but expensive, for high-quality barn gear. We riders are happy that the equestrian trend continues and that some of the barn brands (Hunter, Dubarry, Ariat) are making the transition over to mainstream πŸ™‚ Love your stuff!

    I absolutely love this outfit, the coat is simply stunning :))

  19. Hannah Herron on November 26, 2013 at 11:57 am

    I love that equestrian attire is becoming more accepted in the fashion world! Seeing these boots brings back memories of seeing Dubarry representatives standing in a bucket of water at the Washington National Horse Show.

    Thanks for the tip about the boot liners. I have 2 pairs from Hunter, but I really dig the faux fur trim on the Dubarry's.
