It’s the beginning of December which means it’s officially winter in New York! It also means it’s time to accept this truth and start pulling the winter boots out of the deepest closet depths (which I did reluctantly a few days ago). While permanently wearing boots for the next five months makes it easier to hide neglected pedicures, it can be pretty monotonous wearing the same pair of boots every day. This is especially true with snow boots. I’ve had the same pair of snow boots for the past few years, and am hoping to update them this year with a new pair — something that will keep my feet toasty but also look cute and preferably not too bulky. Is that so much to ask?

Any suggestions for a chic pair of snow boots?
