Mood Board: Toasty Tootsies

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Hope everyone had a spectacular holiday!!  Today Mother Nature is giving us a blizzard here in Connecticut.  And honestly, it is so much fun.  The new house is starting to feel like home so I don’t mind being all curled up inside with a nice cup of hot tea, a fluffy blanket, and the interwebs.

But it got me thinking about keeping warm in kawaii.  Not so much inside but when outside.  Anyone who has been into lolita fashion for a while knows that the materials used for coats and boots are not exactly made for the elements.  And if there is one thing that I can’t deal with it is cold feet in the winter.  Sure there is a fair selection of sweet boots available to choose from.  But they are all form and no function IMHO.

So I am inspired to try my hand at a DIY option in the coming days.  I still want that sweet look but also want warmth.  I hope I can pull it off without it looking too far fetched.  The obvious go-to is Ugg.  Some will argue that Ugg is all function and no form.  I’m pretty smitten with them for sure so will argue otherwise.

Found a few really cute options to get the creativity flowing.  But my real muse will be Baby, the Stars Shine Bright’s Little Princess Coat.  Ideally I would like something that coordinates well with that overall esthetic.

    Those fluffy Ugg boots (#11) are gorgeous – I adore the pom poms. Even though (I don’t know why really) Ugg boots are a commonly disliked style when it comes to footwear I have seen quite a few lovely lolita and otome coords lately featuring Uggs. Maybe it’s comfort over fashion nowadays or perhaps others too are seeing what a cute style of boot they really are. :)

      I love the pom poms too!! So simple and so sweet. You’re spot on, either people love Uggs or hate them. But I do hope warmer boots catch on, as this is our 4th snow this year and technically speaking Winter only officially began on 12/21. Burrrrr.
