My Frye "Santa" Boots (aka Paige Lug)


I picked out these Frye Boots so that they could be a Christmas present from my parents. I really liked their appearance and figured they would be very warm. When they arrived I was glad to learn that they are indeed warm. But upon sight, Chris called them "Santa boots."


Normally this wouldn't be a big deal because I often do not take to heart Chris's clothing assessments (and besides, he typically really likes how I dress) but something about this statement really stuck with me. Now I can't look at them without thinking of Santa. The furry trim and their mid calf height are indeed quite jolly. And even if they aren't the world's most stylish boots, they are by far the warmest I've worn. So although I feel a little merry wearing them, I am glad to have something so warm on the coldest of days.

I like them!! They look super cozy. And as long as you aren't a fat old man with a beard, I doubt anyone will mistaken u for Santa!

I think there is nothing wrong with feeling merry in warm winter boots. They are cute and look warm! I have my own Santa boots, although mine are knee-high and I am so merry wearing them when it's snowing and I have to go to work!

I LOL'd when I read, "Are indeed quite jolly." Still chuckling from that one! Anyhow, they do look warm! I love Fryes!

super cute! I hate it when an apt remark like that can colour how you feel about an article of clothing...

Sahiti, thank you! It is a $5 Gabriel Brothers clearance find but originally came from Urban Outfitters.

Rosa, they are indeed cozy and I think as long as I avoid wearing a red plush suit I'll be ok. :)

Kathrine, tis the season to be merry! haha

Gee, so true! Practicality wins.

La historiadora, Thank you!

Desert Flower, I agree!

Marianne thanks so much!

Erin, they are indeed insanely comfy!

Thirteenlbs, thank you! I thought it was a funny pun.

Thatdamngreendress, I admit I can be sensitive but yeah sometimes a statement like that can really alter my feeling for the long haul.

Thank you all for reading!
