Open Toe Winter Shoes


It's October, which, Saturday Night Live reminds us, "is not quite yet the holidays". Or, as we Bostonians call this time of year, 'That Three to Four Weeks When We Can Wear Inappropriate Winter Shoes'. You know the shoes of which I speak: open toed boots, sandals made from fur, ankle bootie-sandals... or shoes like the ones I'm wearing. These aren't summer shoes; with their open toe and requirement for bare legs, they have a temperature range of 56-63 degrees Fahrenheit. 

This is a small thermal window of fashion opportunity, which makes me wonder: How do people style inappropriate winter footwear? I suppose one could wear them with footless tights, pants and even (gasp!) regular tights. Those options may be fine for a winter in, say, Houston, but I'll be slogging through ten inches of snow on the regular by the end of November. I guess I'll just follow one of two mantras: (1) Beauty is pain. Or, (2) Buy a large enough bag to carry two pairs of shoes - those for the commute, and those for your destination.

Do you have any inappropriate winter shoes? How do you style them?

    1. It's 70 degrees today :) I should be wearing regular sandals. But...it's October! It just doesn't seem right! Also, now watch, it stays 50 degrees all winter and doesn't snow at all and all this "what's the deal with open toed boots" will be nonsense (fingers crossed!).

  2. Those shoes are sasstastic! Love! I also lovingly refer to this time of the year as "bi-polar New Englad fall. Anything goes." Today is a prime example.

  27. Health Experts have proven that regular exercise coupled with a good diet allow you to live longer and healthier. In this busy day and age, not everyone has the time to go to the gym - resulting to a lot of overweight people that desperately need to exercise. A healthy alternative is for you to Buy Home Gym Equipments that you can store in your own home or even at your office. Here are some tips when buying home gym equipment.

    First, know your fitness goals and keep these goals in mind when you are buying home gym equipment. One of the biggest mistakes that people make is buying the biggest or trendiest fitness machine simply because they like how it looks. More often than not, these end up gathering dust in your storage rooms or garage because you never end up using them. It is important to take note of what particular type of physical activity you want or enjoy doing before you buy your exercise machine. If you are looking to loose a few pounds and you enjoy walking or hiking, a treadmill is the best option for you. If you are looking to tone your lower body while burning calories a stationary bike is your obvious choice. Similarly, Special Equipments for Core Strength Exercises, Strength Training Weight Vests, Core Strength & Abdominal Trainers, Home Cardio Training, Strength Training Power Cages, Strength Training Racks & More.

    Second, set aside a budget before Buying Home Gym Equipments. Quality exercise machines do not come cheap. They are constantly exposed to wear and tear when they are used properly. So, pick machines that are built to last and have passed quality certifications to get the most out of your money.

  36. So fabulous winter project you delivered for us. The winter shoes and the fashion ideas you revealed was extremely wonderful. Just dug the deeper into your sweet fashionable post and excited thinking how you decor yourself with the perfect style with colorful shoes. This was totally amazing. I appreciate your elegant work. My personal concern was to collect some good ideas on How to clip in Peloton Shoes as my hubby brought a peloton bike as fitness hunter. But your winter loving approach made me really happy.

  37. At one of the spots I have visited, they had me remain on a glass screen that took an estimation of the strain points of my foot. This assisted with understanding the curve level of the foot. After each of this information is gathered the salesperson will pick a shoe for you to attempt. mens silk pajamas
