Living in Chicago any local will tell you that it's mandatory to have some good Winter boots - and no Uggs don't qualify for many reason. I'm talking about boots that not only keep your mootsie tootsies warm, but can also stand the harsh weather conditions and are stylish. Those are the only things that need to be checked off your list when shopping for a pair and thankfully Sorel boots pass that test with flying colors.
Last week I was lucky enough to join my friends Andrea, Lisa, Emily, Merl and Grace to check out Sorel's new collection at the Step Into Style event hosted by Daily Candy. Timed perfectly with the first snowfall of the season, Winter boots were on my mind that day and who better to look for new boots with than my fashionable blogger buddies?
With Voga Italia wine and Sprinkles cupcakes in hand, we gallivanted around the store to scope out the latest collection. Over the last few years I was obsessed with Sorel's Caribou boots, but this season I'm totally crushing on the Tofino's. These boots are stylish enough to throw on when commuting to work in a massive snow storm, but are also perfect to wear on a cool, crisp and laid back Winter day.
By the end of the night we not only overstayed our time at the on-site photo booth, but we each found a pair that we loved just in time for us to be prepared for the "worst" Winter we're expected to have. Overall it was a great night to hang with my lady friends who not only let me act like a fool, but tolerate it. Have I mentioned how much I love these ladies?
