Boot toppers up your winter outerwear

When we did these shots, we did the “indoor” outfit first. After we had taken them, when I was putting on my “outdoor” outfit my photographer said “put your boot toppers on“. I was like “why are you saying this?” Actually, I wanted to put them on, but he said it before I even had a chance to reach for them. He said “I like them.” I was a little irritated, why would a guy like boot toppers, and asked “Why do you like them?”. He said “They look so friendly and brighten up the boots”.

I never thought about the friendly and brighten up effect of them, but he is right. I always had looked at the boot toppers as a statement piece, more variety in my boot and booties closet, as adding a stylish item to my outfit or as creating interest to my look. Well, last, but not least, as an enhanced insulation to avoid cold feet at frigid temperatures, and protection from getting snow in my booties on a day with fresh snow.

Boot toppers are perfect for cold weather

I really like my boot toppers. I can’t tell how many compliments I got about my boot toppers since I got them.

You can see the outfit is styled for painful, cold weather with -32.8F (-36oC) when you look at the photos. Under my outwear outfit, I am wearing a stripped shirt under a cashmere sweater under my leather sheath dress. Not to mention the long sleeved underwear, a slip and two pairs of tights. The shirt and sheath are items that I wear year round.
