furry fun at the field (museum)

Despite the intense cold we are experiencing here in Chicago, nothing will stop me from going outdoors! …Well, I’m about at the threshold where I will solely leave for work and then hibernate after…but I’m not there yet! Thus, with our adventurous spirit intact, my bf and I hit up the Field Museum.

Let me just preface this by showing you what our current weather is looking like:

Okay,  so sometimes, you guys, this fashion blogger wears furry boots in public for long periods of time (ie during a trip to the Field Museum). I know, I know, people can really be against the furry boots because they are not the most attractive footwear in town (understatement). I hear that. I really do. But, in true Fashion Huntress honesty, commuting shoes happens, as do furry winter boots. Here’s my best “let’s dress up these boots” ensemble for furry fun at the Field (Museum).

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I’ve been pretty dedicated to Uggs since they came out. I currently have a rubber snow pair that I am obsessed with- but I did want a suede pair for fall/early winter this year. I hadn’t tried out the brand Bear Paw before this year, but I’ve been really pleasantly surprised. I checked the materials and they are actually the same as Uggs. Additionally, they were a fraction of the cost. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Uggs and think they are amazingly warm, but I think Bear Paw is a good quality, lower cost option as well. Side note- I actually saw that these boots are on sale at Macy’s right now for $40 instead of the $50 I paid. 
 
2) I love the printed jeans trend, but I’m not totally confident it will stick around all that long. I got my printed jeans at Old Navy for a great price that won’t break my heart (or bank) if they don’t remain on trend. The pair I got are really durable- I’ve washed them a ton and they still look brand new.  Additionally, while I got mine for $30, they often have them on sale at Old Navy for about $15-$20, making them even more of a bang for your buck. 
Anyone else still embracing printed jeans? Wearing Uggs/Ugg-like boots and loving it?
Thanks for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much!

  1. You look so cozy and I love it! I am a big fan of Uggs as they are both cute and comfy. =) I only have them in black and I would love a pair in the chestnut color, like the one you have on. Thank you for opening my eye to the brand Bear Paw. I will have to look for those since they look just like Uggs! =)

  2. While chillin’ in my couch and checking on my favorite blogs, I realized that 6 of my favorite blogger are wearing Uggs or Uggs-like boots. The funny part is that I’m also wearing my grey ones ;-).
    You look so comfy and adorable and I know you feel that way 😉
