Living in Florida we get a lot of rain in the summer so a good pair of rain boots is a definite must. A few year's ago I received these for Christmas and they are seriously the best thing in the whole world:

Side note: I'm not at home right now where I can take a pic of my actual ones so I had to do a little Internet searching. This proved very difficult. That is all.
Rain is undoubtedly not a surprise to you, but did you know it gets cold here too? Of course I'm not talking about -6 or anything but it does get in the low 30's. In fact, yesterday I had to scrape ice off my car and my boss told me this morning that Gainesville (several hours North of me) was colder than New York this morning. Crazy. My BF also plays rec hockey and believe me they keep that rink freezing! My feet get cold pretty easy so about a year ago I splurged on myself and bought these off Gilt:

While these have kept me beyond covered in Florida, I realized I had a problem. My family has a little ski trip planned in January and I don't have any snow boots! I can't risk the muks getting grimy from snow and salt on the roads so I've been on the hunt.
Can I just say that there are a lot of freaking ugly snow boots out there? Seriously. Bad. Side note: I actually did have a pair of snow boots (somewhere in storage back in TX) that I could technically use but they look like this:
|Ok these actually look better than the ones I have. Mine are shorter. I didn't buy these, my dad did so that should explain why they look like timberlands...so not attractive.|

As far as boots go, it would appear I'm locked and loaded for whatever mother earth throws my way!
