Do you have the opportunity to work from home? Even if I’m not planning on leaving the house or seeing anyone, I still like to start my day by getting changed out of my PJs and into an outfit that I feel comfortable and productive in. This winter we’ve moved into a house with floorboards which means I’m on the market for some house shoes that will keep me warm because I refuse to be distracted by my icy cold feet any longer!
Now I don’t know about you but when I’m working from home I don’t want to have to worry about lacing up – so that rules out my usual brogues and sneakers. Also while there are stylish lounge shoes like loafers and even ballet flats and skater shoes, warmth is my goal which pretty much rules those styles out. I figure that my options are as follows:
- Socks & Rugs
Here’s a look at a number of styles that have caught my eye.
From the not-so-warm-but-cute to a style that make me feel like I’ll be walking on clouds…
Argh! This one can be so confusing! In Australia and NZ the term “Ugg” refers generically to sheepskin boots however the term has been trademarked in the US. So in the current landscape we can have Australian-made Ugg Boots, “Uggs” trademarked by American-owned Uggs Australia while Peter Alexander has his “famous homeboots” and EMU Australia simply call them “boots”.
There are many variations on the sheepskin boot these days, including this fashion-inspired take – the “Wintour” Ugg boot by Ugg since 1974
Still not seen something you like? Ugg since 1974 have an online tool that enables customers to design their own ugg boot.
Socks & rugs
Rugs, I have been researching ways that we can add warmth to our home with stylish floor coverings. Here are two of my favourites matched to socks as I think that there are few things as nice as enjoying padding new carpets with socks on…
I wanted to have a third image for you showing super-warm sheepskin rugs and silky hosiery (currently enjoying this polka dot pair from Wade & Belle) however I couldn’t quite get find the imagery right. See I have also become fixated with the idea of laying sheepskin rugs all over our bed, sofas, chairs, benches, couches, floors – you name it. In my research however I’ve not come across any great pictures of a sheepskin rug on its own. My search continues!
Do you work from home? How do you keep your feet warm when you’re in the house?
