This week I ordered some sherpa-lined, shorty rain boots because I realized that I don’t have a lot of in-between weather shoes.

I’ve got Uggs for cold weather, but they aren’t good when it is slushy or wet outside, then I have my hardcore winter boots that are meant for trudging through snowstorms or freezing weather.

But I was missing that cold, and wet shoe. I do have a high rain boot, but being short, I find that they hit me weirdly right below the knee and long walks are uncomfortable.

So I have been meaning to get a pair for a while since all of my errands I do by walking, so I bought these. I found them here in Canada on sale, plus I had accumulated an extra $20 off through my points.

They are all I need. Something lined, short and waterproof.

When I ordered new contacts this week, they also sent me some blue-light blocking glasses in a really cute frame, so I am excited since I lost mine.

It’s the small things.

In case you missed it, I posted a cool mom capsule wardrobe yesterday, and at the beginning of the week, I put out the first digital style guide in a while.
