Boots to help my feet not die

It’s been a cold winter. Ugh. I spend about 70% of my life cold. The only time I’m really warm is when I’m in the car with the heat on full blast. Apart from that, I’m cold. My fingers are cold. My toes are cold. My soul is cold.

My house is like ice and so old you can fee the breeze coming through the front door. I have an old fireplace in my room and heat just seeps through. It takes a few hours to warm up the house with the heating on, and by the time it’s just got to the right temperature my housemate turns it off and within 30 mins I’m freezing my ass off again.

The worst thing is about this is that it makes me so unproductive. I don’t want to do anything when I’m so cold and I can’t keep drinking JD and diet coke to keep me warm. Well, I could, but my liver would probably dry up and drop off. And also drinking does not make me productive either. Although it does make me happy.

The floors are the worst, especially in the kitchen and living room. It’s like walking on ice. My poor feet.

I’m mean and unreasonable to my feet. I don’t know why I got into the habit of wearing flat ballet pumps all the time but it’s a habit I can’t kick. I feel silly in anything else so it’s kind of what I do.

But it’s collllddddddddd though. I have a few boots but they don’t fit me right. So I’d like some new ones please.

Like this Dr Marten ones below.


Look I did a style board with them because I’m so unique and different. Or not. But looook at it. I actually own the dress. And a similar jacket. And I have a blanket scarf, too. So I’ll I need is these boots and my life is complete.

Tell me about your feet and your temperature.

  1. I actually don’t have boots either because I don’t think they look good on me (even though I think they do on others). I’m the only one without boots in winter. But since it’s like a million times colder where you live that me, I think I’d have to get some. The cold definitely is super unproductive, I feel this every day as I’m in a super cold office.

  2. This winter was really cold even when we don’t had so much snow! I like cold weather when the sun shines but that’s all! During the evenings I have always cold feet 🙁

  3. I hear you! I am constantly freezing but i’m still trotting about in flat pumps, can’t wait for summer!!

  4. I live in boots, especially in winter. But I’m with you on feeling cold ALL THE TIME. I swear my body temperature is completely off compared to every one I know! Those boots are so nice too I love the colour! Once you buy one pair you won’t be able to stop! haha

  5. I’m a lover of a good ballet flat, but I’ve recently got into wearing ankle boots in the cold weather and it’s saved me getting frostbite I’m sure! Tania xx

  6. I’m the opposite, I’m nearly always hot! But this is definitely a good excuse to treat yourself to some new boots x

  7. My husband is the same, his feet gets really cold and he wears slippers in the house. I on the other hand couldn’t do it, my hands gets cold but I don’t feel it with my feet. I guess I’m just used to being bare feet in the house since I was a child.

  8. Corinne – this timing is perfect. My super comfy brown suede boots are officially not waterproof and may have given me trenchfoot or gangrene or something else horrid (toe nails are green LITERALLY!) This may have saved me 🙂

  9. haha I need boots in winter too, I’m always cold without them!

    Although it’s been so hot here lately I can’t even think about boots. I’ve seen lots of great ones around with it being autumn here but with Brisbane still in summer temperatures I haven’t been overly excited. They say it’s supposed to cool off quickly in April, seems such a long way away haha.
