OUT N’ ABOUT

Winter boots are way more nowadays than just black rubber boots that we loathe to put on when the weather is snowy and beautiful but our feet need a little more than those over the knee styles we tend to grab for on the daily. Sorel has so many styles that are far from dread worthy. Like these red Out n’ About booties I am showing you today.

I am completely obsessed with these boots. Instead of hoping it doesn’t snow I hope it does so I can wear these more often than not. But that is just the thing- these do NOT have to be only for snow. Cooler weather yes- but I have worn them apple picking, in the leaves with my kids, and I plan on wearing them all the time when the weather gets colder and I really want a cozy boot to wear that isn’t clunky or a rainboot.

These boots are sporty yet you do not only have to wear them ONLY with a winter coat or puffy vest. Here I styled them with a chunky drapey cardigan from this post and my ULTIMATE favorite tee shirt and it looks put together. It was actually icy the day I shot this look and the boots gripped the pavement so well and prevented me from sliding down the hill.

I added a cute beanie which is my go to for days I am due to wash my hair but don’t. I think it adds that cozy relaxed vibe to any outfit. This one is old from Forever 21 but they always have beanies for so cheap in so many colors.

These boots also come in 4 other colors (here and here). I love them all! FYI they ran slightly small on me so I sized up a 1/2 size.
