Snow Day!

Yeah, I don't know if you noticed, but it, um, SNOWED in Chicago on Friday. I was flying back from San Francisco and had heard it was supposed to flurry, but was totally shocked to find an inch or two of powdery white on the ground when we landed. The freakiest part was most of the trees still had green leaves on them before the snow came, and then dropped all of their leaves with the snow - there was a crazy mix of colors mixed in with all of the white!

Now, I have to put this out there - I was not, nor am I currently ready for snow. I mean, really, I would prefer the snow hold off until just before Christmas, give us a blanket of white, and then go away for the rest of winter. But, living in Chicago, I know that's never going to happen so I have to make the best of it.

And how do I do that? With my new bean boots of course!

I've wanted a pair of bean boots forever, and was so glad I finally decided to snag a pair this year. I went with 8" shearling lined boots from L.L.Bean, and you guys, I made the right choice. The fur lining makes the boots so comfortable and warm, and I personally think the 8" height is great because they're tall enough to work when there's lots of snow on the ground (or big puddles) but aren't so tall that they're cumbersome, like my Joan of Arctic boots (only for the snowiest, coldest days).

I found them true to size, and they were comfortable enough to wear without any breaking in (with camp socks, of course). They come in whole sizes only, so if you're between sizes, size down to the next whole size.

If you're looking for a pair of bean boots, my pair is 25% off only through tonight with code 25OFF! Snag them now, before they inevitably sell out during the first real snowstorm of the year.

Oh, and before I end this post, I would like to formally apologize for not taking better pictures of my boots, when I knew I was planning to write a post about them. This is the first time I've shot with my tripod in a loooooooong time because my photographer (ahem: husband) was out of town, and then my camera ran out of batteries. But just know that they are super cute and I love them and many other superlatives :)
