Many of my fellow New Yorkers keep spreading the word that summer is ending soon. I’m not entirely sure if this is something that saddens me, or makes me thrilled for the new season to come, and with that, a new wardrobe… Regardless, this means a beautiful Indian summer is upon us, followed by a short Fall, and most likely a long Winter…
I was terrified of the New York winter before I moved here, but they aren’t as bad as people told. Of course, needless to say, they are really cold, but when you prepare well, it’s very doable. One of these preparations is good outdoor gear, coats, hats, and of course shoes. I’ve started preparing early this year, and got my first pair of UGG® Australia boots via Nordstrom. One of the very best US shopping destinations, carrying my favorite classic UGG® Australia style: the Ultra short.
Moving from a comfort brand to a fashion brand, UGG® Australia is not only focussing on the warm aspect of their shoes, but also on the way you can wear the boots in a more fashionable way. Which I personally like, because living in a city where the climate really challenges you, there’s no way around them, only these boots will keep your feet really warm. So by starting early, as mentioned above, I challenged myself to wear my Ultra short booties in a way that I feel they are suiting my style: bare legs, denim shorts, and my favorite shirt. Not too shabby, right?
