Winter Shorts

When it’s winter on the East Coast, you can’t really get away with wearing shorts outside (unless you want to freeze to death). Luckily for me, these pictures were taken in California, where winter = 60 degrees in December.

I only packed two pairs of shoes when I went home last month: my heeled ankle boots from Nordstrom and my Sam Edelman Petty boots. I’d been lusting after these boots for months and I finally took the plunge when they released the black leather version last fall. They were definitely pricier than what I’d normally pay but I know the splurge was worth it. I wear them all the time and I’m hoping they’ll last for many years.
