The leaves have all fallen off the trees and we’ve had some snow stick to the ground. I guess that means that winter has unofficially arrived here in Toronto! I can’t say that I’m happy to bid farewell to fall. As you know, there are so many things I love about fall, but I’ll admit, it’s beautiful to watch the snow. Typically, I prefer to watch the snow from the warmth and comfort of home, but you can’t hibernate all season. When I do venture out into the cold and snow, I like to wear my coziest pieces of clothing. Warm cardigans, cozy blanket scarves and my newest addition, Ecco Ukiuk boots. My Ecco Ukiuk boots are warm, comfortable and look cute with so many of my outfits these days!

I always complain about winter, but there’s many people who are jealous that Canadians experience all 4 seasons. I was reminded of this in the comments I received on this flat lay I posted on Instagram. It was a simple photo, showcasing a cozy flannel and my Ecco Ukiuk boots. One of my long-time blog friends, Ivete from Girl in a Hot City, commented that she’s jealous that I get to wear cute winter pieces. I’m always taken with comments like that, because ultimately, the grass is always greener on the other side. I’m jealous of those in the south, who don’t have to experience painfully frigid days, or the stress of driving through snowstorms.
That being said, I do love dressing for the cold. I’m always excited to wear warm plaid scarves, sweaters and boots – there’s just something about snuggling up in an oversized men’s Buffalo Plaid shirt and some jeans that makes me smile. I know I will regret putting this in writing, but maybe… winter isn’t all bad?
The Ecco Ukiuk Boots
The Ukiuk boots are my first pair of shoes from Ecco, but oh my goodness, they are insanely comfortable! I cannot recommend them enough! Up until recently, I hadn’t tried Ecco shoes or boots, but I fell in love with the brand and many of their pieces at a recent media preview. If you’ve never tried them before either, I highly recommend that you do.
I ended up with the Ecco Ukiuk boots partly for their comfort and partly for their minimalist design. The boots are lined with lambswool, which keeps your feet warm and cozy. They also have good support for your feet, which is often the issue with similar boots. While I don’t plan to wear these in the middle of a snowstorm, they do have a rubber heel, which helps protect the suede and your feet from getting wet. I’m excited to pair the boots with my favourite boyfriend jeans, as well as with skinny jeans and my faux fur vest.
Do you get to experience all 4 seasons where you live?
