Thank goodness - it is freezing in Melbourne! - Jenny

Winter must-have shoes and socks - stockists listed below

Thank-you so much for having me back Lucy and Jenny! Oh how nice it is to be back here in this pretty little blog. I’m back to share with you some of my favorite winter must-haves that I've found while skipping around Melbourne town in the last couple of weeks.

Firstly, I am going to start with two very important winter accessories made to keep little tootsies warm and frost-bite-free during the chilly winter months - shoes and socks. Luckily there are some very talented people around who make the necessities of putting on your socks and shoes a fun daily task because there are so many cute combinations to be made.

I am absolutely in love with OKOK tights and socks, I can’t get enough of them, they are super warm and snuggly.  Match these up with a cute pair of Hobes, that now come in many new gorgeous designs and colours, and you have got yourself a killer pair of pins.  I also adore Pene Durston’s fluffy and oh-so-warm angora socks, perfect for wearing while curled up on the couch or paired with vintage leather boots.  Gorman have some amazing new shoe designs this winter that even my guy friend Felix admired, these look so so lovely with some Hansel From Basel duo coloured socks. See! So much fun!! How can you not be excited by winter now??

Vintage leather boots $55 from Smith St matched with Pene Durston cream angora socks $70 from Cottage Industry, Gorman Sienna black boot $349 matched with Hansel from Basel socks $35 from Monk House.

Gorman Cheetah Boot $329 match with OKOK woollen tights $35, Mustard High Hobe $159 Matched with Hansel From Basel socks $35 both from Monk House.

Gorman Love Jungle heel $299 matched with OKOK cotton tights $30, Brown Canvas Hobe $159 from Monk House matched with OKOK cotton knee-hi socks $17.
