Portland Snow Day 2017

For the first time in my working life I called out from work because of snow. Portland got over a foot of snow and Oregon Department of Transportation said chains were required for any state roads. I have had my car less than a year so I do not have chains. The buses were all messed up from the snow as well, so I got to have a snow day as an adult.

Annie’s Donuts was open today, and they had plenty of room to park you skis. Also, they make the best classic donuts in town.

The snow makes everything so pretty. I just wish it wasn’t so dangerous. Portland is not equipped to deal with this much snow. Hopefully everyone stays safe and finds a way to enjoy the snow.

Boots for Snow

Every year I buy myself a pair of boots. This year I decided to buy a pair of boots that are waterproof, and it was also my first pair of Sorel boots. At first I was not sure about the purchase because they were $100 (any purchase over $50 requires serious thought for me).sorel1

After the first time wearing them I was in love.

Recently Portland has gotten snow and ice, which I do not like. However the wedge heel on these boots it perfect for cracking through the top layer of ice on snow.

The boots make me feel extra sassy because of the wedge. They are also extremely comfortable. I am very impressed with Sorel’s quality so far.
