Today’s Irish Times has a great piece on the bits you need to get you through the snow by Róisín Ingle – so read that, and then come back here and take a look at these lovely boots, by Sorel.

To be fair, snow boots were never going to be the most amazingly fashionable things in the world – but, as functional footwear goes, I think these are pretty neat. They’re also really comfortable and (obviously) cosy. I wore my wellies in today (my old snow boots, which are white and have some sort of – brace yourself – glittery feature on them, are at home in Kildare) and my feet are nearly frozen off me!

Now, am I losing my mind or is this the most beautiful cosy winter jacket you’ve ever seen? I don’t really need your reassurance, because I am in love. It ain’t cheap, at €199.95, but it might just have to go on my Santa list (are you reading this?!) . . .
