What I'm Wearing: Sperry Top-Sider Chatsworth Boot

You're probably familiar with Sperry Top-Sider, a brand that's been making boat shoes for decades, but you probably had no idea that they also make amazing boots for fall and winter, from rain boots to the luxe shearling wedge Chatsworth Boots you see me wearing here, compliments of Sperry Top-Sider. The construction is great, the boots are warm and fit true to size (the unique toggle closures make them wide-calf-friendly) and I love the look -- but I'm slightly petrified to wear them in the snow for fear of getting them dirty! Retailing at $225, these would definitely be a splurge but you would be stylish and cozy. Here, I paired my Chatsworth Boots with my Joe's jeans, Old Navy henley, Forever 21 sweater and Linea Pelle hobo via Check out all of Sperry Top-Sider's fab boots at

I agree...would be afraid to get them dirty in the snow.

Cute!! Are they as comfy as they look? These would have been SO awesome when we were living in Minnesota. Though there's a possibility that we'll be re-stationed to Alaska ... hmmmm .... is that a good enough excuse to splurge???

They are really comfy and lightweight but because of the wedge, you still need to be careful on steps or uneven pavement. The shaft is very soft and pliable (you can bend them, it's literally just shearling, not reinforced, slightly thinner than my Uggs) so while your ankle is supported by the base of the boot, it can slide to the side if you step down at an angle (hope this makes sense, I'm just trying to be detailed - not nit-picky!).

Gorgeous boots but obviously expensive.

Thx, I got it in the store. If possible, I recommend shopping Forever 21 in person especially for sweaters so you can feel them for softness, quality, and try them on because sizes are all over the place. With their outerwear, I usually size up to a M or L. I think most of the sweaters I've purchased are a M. Hope this helps! :-)
