My latest outfit post is brought to you by: a patient boyfriend who agreed to take my photo last Saturday; caffeine; gorgeous fall foliage in the most lovely shade of orange-red; and last but certainly not least, my new 'Marla' Cougar boots, sent by Matchstick.
High-heeled hiking boot styles caught my eye last fall, but because I thought they were going to be a fleeting trend I never bought a pair. I should have known that a look like this--a seemingly perfect mix of cozy, functional, casual and chic--would stick around for at least another year! The 'Marla', though, is much more functional than its fast fashion ilk. They're breathable, insulated for temperatures ranging from -10°C to -30°C, and waterproof, meaning they'll stand up to rain, slush, snow and harsh winter temperatures just fine. The chunky 2.5" heel, cushy insoles and sturdy soles make these shoes very comfortable for everyday wear, although admittedly my feet sometimes felt a little too toasty in them. I'm looking forward to wearing them in the first snowfall of this year!
Speaking of fall foliage, you should take a walk and enjoy the crisp autumn air and brilliant leaves before they're gone!
