striped skirt with a blazer and flannel scarf boom - snow! While our neighbors to the north are being bombarded with seven feet of snow, we've luckily only received a little over a foot. Not a bad start to the first week of snow though :/

So now it's officially boot and tights weather. After I finally made it to Target earlier this week, I picked up these fleece lined leggings. I wear socks with tights anyway (when I wear boots), so I figured it made more sense to get the footless kind because the toe is usually the first to rip on other tights. They are just as comfy as you guys all said! I may just wear them around the house all winter long.

In the spirit of Bri's Third Thursday link up (fall footwear), here are my go-to pairs of boots throughout the snowy fall and winter. I have wider calves (15.5 inches) which sometimes makes it difficult to find boots because I may not always need the wide calf sizing, but the normal calf doesn't fit right either. The following four pairs hit the sweet "in between" spot. The Hunter boots are especially great - their boots come in the original style, the huntress style for wider calves, and this in between style with an adjustable back. I love that they give me the look of the originals while still accommodating my calves. They also offer a few glossy colors as well!
