Winter's here! It has always been one of my favorite seasons, but in one particular way definitely not. Somehow, every single year, I end up jumping from dry spot to dry spot between the floods of snows in my ballet flats. The perfect boots and I have been playing hide-and-seek since forever (obviously I'm always it).. I'm almost sure that my body temperature is 2 celcius degrees lower than usual during the cold months. What's to say? Winter clothes and I.. Well, we just never really hit it off. Boots and thick knits and coats.. The chemistry between us was just never there.
Why? I'm actually not quite sure. It just feels wrong (I used to have the same thing with black shoes.. it was just wrong when they were on my feet.. Sometimes it still is).. I guess that would categorize me as an emotional dresser? But honestly, I just hate how I feel like I have to compromise me and my style to stay warm. Yes, I do own boots and heavy coats but I feel so unrefined and michelin man-like whenever I walk outside in cold-proof outfits.
And the funny thing? I actually think winter attires can look amazing. Some people really know how to assemble an outfit beautifully with lots of layers and different materials. Below, a small selection of picture proof thereof. And I love all of these picks and sincerely wish I could dress like that. I just cannot imagine me wearing it. It's strange, aint it?

However, I do have my eye on this Margiela coat but I'm still considering if whether or not I should actually press buy. As for boots, I'm clueless. Anyone who has any fabulous ideas for somebody with sz. huge feet (1o) and a strong boot-aversion to overwin? I know, I'm difficult (all this talks for a exchange at a university in Singapore for my 3rd year, though. I'll put it on my con-list right away).
Final question: How do you stand the cold? Anyone with me on this one or do you, like half the Danish population, gladly put on your boots as soon as the temperature dives below 15 celcius?
