Winter Style: Black Blazer, Lace Tank and Warm Boots

Jacket: H&M, Top: ExpressBoots: Cougar FIZZ, Clutch: GAP (similar), Necklaces: Forever21 (similar)

I’m a firm believer in dressing warmly… I can’t just throw on a coat and be happy – I need cozy covers for my ears, hands and feet too. I think it’s because I was born in a tropical country… Hubby was born in England and he’s happy wearing a sweatshirt on days when I’m bundled up in my puffy winter coat! (Sidenote: I quickly slipped my coat off to take these photos… it was minus 4C… do I look freezing?)

Since I value warm feet – I was super excited to get the chance to try
the FIZZ boots from Cougar. Not only are they oh-so-warm (they’re made of
Suede with an insulated Micronylex lining)…they’re HEAVEN to walk in,
because they have a molded memory foam insole. I didn’t even know memory foam insoles existed – how come they’re not mandatory for all shoes? It makes you feel like you’re walking on little clouds! Here are some of my favorite FIZZ-features:

  • Guaranteed waterproof with a non-slip sole – perfect for wet winter weather.
  • Hidden 1.5 inch wedge heel – adds a little bit of height without any discomfort.
  • Almond-shaped toe and pretty gold zipper & tassel details –
    they work well with jeans but are also chic enough to wear with dresses
  • Flexible – some winter boots are stiff and hard to drive with … these boots allow a full range of movement. This is important to me since I’m a very cautious new driver and pedal control is so crucial!

While the Fizz is my favorite style, I also love the slouchy Fandango Boot and the sturdy Danza Boot too! If you would like your own pair of Cougar Boots – you should definitely enter their contest (details here
