This isn't the first time I've referenced my Big Ass Boots on here, although since I'm a lazy bitch I won't bother with backtracking and finding the prior post links. So, it's officially FUCKING WINTER in Chicago all of a sudden. This isn't a surprise, as it's that time of year, but really, when it's in the upper 30's, and falls to 4 degrees the next day, well, it's a bit of a shock.
Those boots are anything but pretty, however I equate them with how women must feel when rocking their best-est pair of high heels. When I strap these on, I'm suddenly 2 inches taller and feel practically invincible. With the combination of the steel toe/heel, I could totally shatter someone's knee caps if I needed to. These aren't merely shoes, they are FUCKING WEAPONS!
Unfortunately, they're about as comfortable as they look. Which is not much. At all. Still, these boys will allow me to traverse the treacherous terrain (alliteration alert!) that is a Chicago Winter. And to add to my winter arsenal, I'm taking a voyage to a work clothes type store on the near west side of the city, to get outfitted with a proper insulated hat, a plethora of wool socks and perhaps some long johns. TODAY.
This certainly isn't my "first rodeo", but this will be my first winter without benefit of a car...it's gonna pretty much blow.
