See what I did there with the title? hehe...#teacherjokes
I don't care what people say about UGGs - I love them and find them extremely efficient for Chicago winters. They are easy to throw on, warm and comfortable. While they may not go with every outfit and can definitely not be dressed up (bummer, I know!) I still find myself reaching for these boots whenever the temperature drops.
While you may not be able to wear these for much more than running errands - I believe I've found a loophole...

Let me introduce you to the new addition to my collection:

This is the 'Amie' - Classic Slim Short Boot.
I'm in love.
The first thing you probably notice is the slight wedge heel. It is hardly noticeable on and these shoes are just as comfortable as the original. Additionally, these are more narrow than the original as well as more slim. The new shape is less "clunky" or as I call it, "marshmallowy". Therefore, when you wear these boots it doesn't feel like you have a snowboot on. You are able to wear these for more than just a Starbucks run.
My favorite reason for snagging these new boots is for school a.k.a work. As some of my readers know, I'm a teacher. And while I like to keep my look pretty casual in the classroom - if you don't know why, you should click this link - I have some standards when it comes to footwear. I'm not a heathen! That being said, I'm all about comfy, but it can't be sloppy. These boots provide the feel of a slipper but the silhouette of an actual knee high boot similar to often worn leather styles.
I can't wait to break these babies out in the classroom, I haven't been able to wear them quite yet because it has been raining; rain in January - YUCK! However, I know I'll have more than a few opportunities because it's only January and here in Chicago we get cold weather until practically April.
What are your thoughts on these boots? Are they still ugly? Would you rock them? Let me know in the comments below!
P.S. If you plan on buying these, go 1/2 size up from your usual UGG size.
P.P.S. UGG if you're out there somewhere reading this - feel free to sponsor me and give me free cozy UGG gear...I'd gladly accept!
