The sun is sneaking off to bed earlier. There is an iciness to the air in the morning and my electric blanket got flicked on for the first time a few nights ago. I say this every year and will no doubt continue to say it but - what happened to summer? I have been in Melbourne for 7 years now and I still haven't acclimatised to the weather. A Melbourne summer seems to consist of a sweltering few weeks that can only be survived by late night beach trips and hanging out in the frozen section in the supermarket; and a smatter of perfect sunny days that fall only during the working week.
Winter on the other hand hangs around like a bad smell. As someone who would much rather invest in summer clothes, the practical side of me knows that my money should be going towards coats and boots. Last winter I scraped by without purchasing a new pair of boots because I just couldn't find anything I liked. Every shelf seemed to be filled with the same pointy-toed, lace-up pixie boots that I tried to love but all I could picture was Witchy Poo from HR Puff 'n' Stuff. The year before I had lived in my Chanel inspired biker boots and it was (faux) Suede  over the knee the year before that. 
I have now learnt that sneakers and bed socks just don't invoke the same toastie warm magic that a great pair of boots do and are completely useless in pouring rain. This year I am starting the perfect boot search early and these are my favourites so far:
