The Best Black Boots for Fall and Winter

The Best Black Boots for Fall and Winter

If there’s one thing I wear from the start of fall to the end of winter, it’s boots. Living in Michigan, boots are a necessity since we have brisk falls and cold winters. While I wear sneakers and flats in the spring and summer, my fall and winter wardrobe tends to revolve around boots.

My friends at San Antonio Shoemakers (SAS) sent me their Duchess Boots and I absolutely love them. They’re perfect for fall and winter since you can dress them up or dress them down.

We learned all the basics like making a "pizza" to stop and spreading your arms out like an eagle to balance as you go down the hill. I'll never forget holding on to the rope to be towed up the bunny hill and my first time getting on to a chairlift. Since then, I've become an avid skier. My family and I went on ski trips almost every spring break as I grew up. 

If you know how to ski or snowboard, you can probably appreciate my take on the best parts of going on a ski/snowboard trip:
