Sorel Shila Suede Boot

I'm super unprepared this year for my trip!  I think it didn't register to me how cold it was going to be, and I am flying out tonight!  I actually just got my iphone unlocked today as well, so I can use it outside of the US.  Didn't know that process would have taken at least a week!  So I paid some website more money to do it faster haha.  Anyway, luckily I had the foresight to buy these Sorel Shila Suede boots from Ruelala.  They arrived last week and I think they will save me big time.  They are shearling lined, and the lining is actually removable as well.   They are made to withstand up to -40 degrees!  So they better keep my toes toasty!  Hehe.

I don't like how big the "Sorel" brand name appears on the bottom side of these shoes, but they were only $50 on Ruelala and they were the only pair that had my size so I couldn't really be picky.  I like the Sorel boots with fur from Nordstrom, but I don't really want to spend $120 for a pair of snow boots I will not use again.  

These are what they look like:

On me:

So they are kind of like extremely warm Uggs with better soles.  They feel pretty comfortable to walk in, although I haven't tested them since they are way too hot for LA.  I hope that's the case!  I got them in size 6.5, which is my normal shoe size and they seem to fit true to size.  I think I will wear them without socks or thin socks only because of the existing lining.

Anyway, so this is kind of the last piece of warm weather item that I needed to get for my trip.  I can always get some more hats, scarves, gloves, or other small items once I get there.  

Ahhh flying out in 4 hours!  I should finish packing and get my butt to the airport.  Well, I will try to post from China, but I'm not sure how often I'll be able to.  But I will be back on January 15th, so I hope you all have a very Happy New Year!  Fingers crossed that my body parts won't freeze off while I'm over there!  Hehe.


  1. Haves great trip, looking forward to pictures from your trip on the blog!

  2. Ooooh the DHBH looks so cute on you, now I'm wishing I had bought it in white!! I contemplated it, but I think I am too klutzy and drink too much coffee (I might also have a hole in my chin, cause somehow I ALWAYS spill it on me!) so I suppose I can't have pretty white things until grow up and am not a human bib anymore haha

    I hope you're having a wonderful new year!!
