I own exactly one pair of boots. They could be called 'sturdy lace-ups', but to be brutally honest, they are hiking boots. They get the job done. They get the job done while wearing pants. While wearing pants and walking in nature.

Here in Washington State we've been having a cold snap. Not just cold, but also snowy. By the time I was dressing for church on Sunday morning we had a couple of inches of the white stuff. Not much you say? True, but I am much more accustomed to my precipitation being in a liquid, not frozen form. Which is why my wardrobe doesn't run towards dress boots. I do have plenty of sensible-ish heels, but sadly, none of them are snow friendly - either they have open toes or the soles are slicker than a Dutch architect. I was having a crisis, not of faith, but of fashion. My options were severely limited...I ended up wearing some shoes that I only wear with pants. Turned out that I made a wise choice to go 'sensible' - by the time we left church I had to walk through 4 or 5 inches of snow - no way would my feet have stayed dry in any of my heels.
|A 'step' up from hiking boots, but not a very large step.|

shoe shopping until the roads are clearer.
|Dressy enough to wear with a skirt or pants? I think so.|
Ready boots? Start walking.
