Craving: Minnetonka Shearling Lined Boots

by Tiffanie

I love fashion and how fabulous it is. And sometimes I love being comfortable.

Luckily, the two aren’t mutually exclusive, but I admit that I have days where I succumb to sweats. I do my best to make it better — yoga pants with a fitted T-shirt, my boyfriend’s college sweaters with leggings — but let’s be honest here. It’s not very fabulous. Sometimes you just don’t want to dress up!

That being said, one of my favorite not-so-cute-but-oh-so-comfortable indulgences are fuzzy shoes. I’m talking about Uggs and my fleece lined moccasins! So terribly un-chic but so perfect for running to the grocery store on a cold winter’s day at 10 a.m.

And so when I saw these shoes while browsing J. Crew’s new arrivals, there was a part of me that just reeaaally wanted them. Despite the fact that they look super comfy, I actually think they could pass for real shoes. And when I think about running out to get eggs on the weekend or picking up a take-out order from the place next door, all I can think is, I totally need these, for that.

So tell me, am I totally crazy? Or is this a justifiable purchase?

(Oh and it turns out there’s a nearly identical version on sale for $59.99 that I sadly don’t like as much.)
