    I’m sorry to have made you feel footware bad 🙁

    1. Hannah

      I forgive you. Or I will, when I beat you at poker 😉

    I want a macaron. Did you say you wanted a lift tomorrow? There might be a price now I’m thinking…

    1. Louise

      Oh definitely

      1. Hannah

        And she got one!

    Your poor toe 🙁

    I’m glad to see you picked out a cute pair of uggs and that you aren’t wearing big baggy sweat pants tucked into them! 🙂

    1. Hannah

      Thanks 🙂 I’m glad I’m falling on the “more stylish” end of the ugg spectrum!

    Your ugg boots look far from daggy. And lol glad you’re enjoying the macarons!

    1. Hannah

      Aw, thanks! The macarons are fabulous – as you can read above, I even had to use one as a trade to get my mum to drive me to the doctor! 😉

    I would have thought Uggs were much cheaper in Australia. Guess not. I also think they look comfy, in an appropriate setting, like winter. (i.e. not in summer, paired with one’s tiniest tank top and shortest, most artfully-frayed jean skirt.) But the main question is, do your feet feel better? I’m wondering what specifically makes them superior to Birkenstocks, or is your toe just a fashionista?

    1. Hannah

      I think the reason these ones are so expensive is because they’re the real, very high-quality lamb’s wool kind, whereas in the States the acrylic fake versions are just as expensive because a majority of Americans misconstrue the reality of the Ugg – i.e. THEY’RE SLIPPERS. Except mine, which are clearly awesome.

      (Also, how did you know about the outfit I’m wearing today? It really highlights my diamante belly-button ring.)

      They’re superior to the birks because they keep me toes warm, and according to my doctor, grey-purple toes aren’t good.

    Uggs deserve their bad reputation when they’re worn with ripped jean miniskirts and no tights — in summer. But you’ve managed to find some cute, non-typical ones, AND they’re season-appropriate! No shame in that, I say.

    1. Hannah

      Thanks Lauren 🙂 It’s nice to know that I’m not necessarily a beacon for disapproving glances right now. Also, Uggs are Australian, so I think I get to wear them “legitimately” more than Americans do anyway 😉

    On the plus side…think how toasty and cosy your feet will be!!!!

    1. Hannah

      They are at that. I feel guilty, but it’s far nicer having non-icicle toes.

  8. Kath Lockett

    Hey, at least the uggs are pretty groovy-looking ones and …….

    …. even more importantly …

    ….. they’re not Crocs!

    1. Hannah

      I’d like to assert that I’ll never fall so far as Crocs, but then again I probably would have said the same about birkenstocks and uggs two years ago…

  9. Baking Serendipity

    Honestly, all I can think right now is how jealous I am that you can wear Uggs without your feet sweaty like crazy. It’s 115 in Phoenix and I am. so. over. it. !! Hope this helps the toe 🙂

    1. Hannah

      I cannot WAIT for that kind of heat. I’ve only had one summer in the past three years, so I can’t even express how much I can’t wait to be uncomfortably hot 😉 And all the summer fruits! Just think of plums and berries and watermelon and I’m sure you’ll feel better!

  10. goddessvaala

    They really are quite pretty you know! I am practically living in my ugg boots when I’m not at work ’cause it’s so damn cold here right now.

    PS the fabric of your skirt is gorgeous!

    1. Hannah

      Thank you Vaala 🙂 A girl in the corridor today complimented my skirt too. I felt chuffed.

      1. Hannah

        Wait, that doesn’t work. That was today, when I’m wearing a completely different skirt. I’m a fool…

  11. Tammy McLeod

    I like the Uggs. Hope the toe gets better.

    1. Hannah

      Thanks Tammy. I do too!!

  12. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I was the exact same about Ugs and then Winter struck many years ago and I moved out of my very comfortable parent’s house into my own with floorboards and they became a neccessity. But not outside-yet!

    1. Hannah

      Just wait until you have a 14-month-ongoing two saga… *cue foreboding music* 😉

  13. theresa

    That macaron looks so seriously delicious. And your boots don’t look dumb! Though, when you come up here, you definitely will not need them.

    1. Hannah

      Thanks Theresa 🙂 Though be careful what you say – you might find me on your doorstep tomorrow.

  14. Johanna GGG

    share the macaron and we can swap shoes – honest!

    seriously that is upsetting about ugg boots but you make them look very stylish – just hope the toe pulls its head in and enjoys snuggling in there.

    most upsetting is that some company has trademarked the name ugg – now that is just not cricket!

    1. Hannah

      It’s a tempting offer… too bad you aren’t in Canberra for such a swap to happen! Gosh, really? To be honest, I always kinda thought they were called “ugh” boot anyway 😉

  15. Simply Life

    oh those uggs are cute! 🙂

  16. hungryandfrozen

    Ooh, edible gold.

    Gotta say as far as Uggs go those are pretty styley. And comfort counts for an awful lot, especially when a sore toe is involved.

    1. Hannah

      Thanks Laura 🙂 At this point, I’d wear a pencilcase as a shoe if I thought it would help!

    I am reading this wearing uggs. Granted, I am reading this out of view of the general public, but my uggs are surely not for public viewing. They are of the non-cute variety. I am not letting them anywhere near my monitor as they will get cuteness envy at yours. They will always have my respect however, as they did me very well through both a cold Swedish winter and a cold Montreal winter, both of which I cared not how I looked.

    1. Hannah

      I know exactly what you mean. The countless times I wore plastic bags over (just) my left sock, under the birkenstock, while traveling around the stylish centres of Europe? I was so non-caring I might’ve be almost cool (but wasn’t).

  18. Cadbury Crunchie Rocks - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] The Crunchie Bar. Sometimes its tooth-aching sweetness, honey notes, and melts-upon-contact honeycomb filling is just what the doctor ordered. (My doctor has, in fact, told me to eat chocolate, find a job I like, and go to parties and kiss boys. Seriously, she said that. It all had something to do with her decreeing that I should have fun occasionally. She’s a pretty awesome doctor, really, even if she does make me buy ugg boots.) […]
