Whit’s Friday Faves
Today I’m highlighting probably my all time favorite thing. As you can tell, I have a tendency to love shoes. So this Friday Fave is none other than my beloved UGGs. These have been around for years, but they are still going strong in my book! Slippers, house shoes, booties, snow boots, you name it. If they make em, I’ll buy em. These babies never fail me. I only wish I could put into words all of the feelings I have in my heart for UGGs…. It’s difficult but I’m going to try. Here goes. This post contains affiliate links to some of my favorite products that I use and love.
Living in Colorado, there is no doubt it gets cold. The thing I didn’t count on is that my feet would be in a constant state of chill for about 9 months out of the year. I had to suit up my feet. Since I am a stay at home mom, I’m home a LOT. How do I find comfort, warmth, and stylish shoes that can go from tucking in the kids for nap to cruisin down the grocery store aisle to hiking through the snow in the mountains [Read about our journey from city to mountains here!] , all while it’s 20 degrees or less outside?
A simple answer. UGGS. Here are my top 4 reasons why I chose today’s Friday Fave. *Sidenote: did you know you can purchase UGGs through Amazon.com?? Yeah, I didn’t either. UNTIL NOW! YASSS! Get out that credit card baby, it’s time to shop!
My current fave slippers on the wishlist. And how stinkin cute are these toddler boy boots?! Don’t even get me started on the adorable girl UGGs!
Why a Friday Fave?
- FUNCTIONAL: Let’s talk about the obvious first. UGGs are functional and practical. The sheep wool on the inside warms your foot the appropriate amount. Generally, my feet will be warm but never get too hot or sweaty. The leather helps protect the outside from getting too wet. The rubber sole is perfect for wearing out of the house to run errands, grab coffee, etc. etc.
- DURABLE: Okay ya’ll, I’ve had some of my UGGs for over 10 years. HOLY wow. I should probably throw them out. But WHY!? They still keep my feet warm, are super cute, and the rubber sole is in tact! I do believe they get a little dirty from time to time, but that’s just a sweet reminder of how much they mean to you! [I don’t judge, after all it is my love affair that has us here talking about these beautiful shoes.]
- STYLISH: UGGs are straight up adorable. There are so many different styles now. Slippers, booties, snow boots… Tan, brown, pink, purple, white, black, grey… I can’t get enough! I have a pair of tall Ugg snow boots that I purchase about 10 years ago that are still as beautiful and warm as the day I tried them on.
- UNIVERSAL LOVE: UGGs are the perfect gift for men, women, and kids. You don’t even have to live in a cold climate. They can be worn everywhere from the coast to the mountains. And there is a price point for everyone also. So, I mean really ya’ll, what’s not to love?
Do you own a pair of UGGs? If not, I highly recommend jumping on board the UGG train. It’s worth it for so many reasons! Which UGGs are on your wishlist this year?
Stay warm, adventure friends!
