For the love of Uggs

I always hated Uggs. I thought they were ugly and I would never ever own a pair. They were so expensive and did I mention ugly?!
Well then I start hearing how incredibly comfortable they are and how warm they are. Suddenly they are sounding appealing because with this bitter cold my feet are ALWAYS freezing!
The more I saw them the more I liked them, dare I say that I even thought they were cute! I was starting to like them, but not the price. I do not like to spend more than $30 on shoes! But Garth finally convinced me to get them, especially since our ski trip is coming up so it looks like I'll need some boots to hike in!
We went to the mall Monday and I found a pair of knock off Uggs on sale. I tried them on and instantly fell in love! I bought them and dragged Garth to the mall restrooms so I could put them on. How dorky am I?! I wore them around the mall and our apartment the whole day! I made Garth take a walk with me so I could wear them again. I love them! My feet are so warm and comfy! It's like walking on a cloud!
I kept saying to Garth: "Are your feet cold?" And he would respond: "yes" to which I would respond "Mine aren't!" But that got old really quick so I stopped doing that. But yes I am now a proud owner of Ugg knock offs and in love.
Of course I took a picture of them:
And if I take a picture of boots I should take a pic of us:

I love my UGGs, no matter how ugly or out of style they are. They are warm and make my feet happy!!

Mrs. Stilettos said...

Uggs are WONDREFUL! :)

Ask Mr. Stilettos...I live in mine!

La Petite Chic said...

I think the jury is still out for me on whether or not I like Uggs. But I'm with you, if they keep your feet warm in this bitter cold, I don't care what they look like!

Tabbie:) said...

Oh no you broke, I can't believe it. I guess it's good that your feet are warm but Ugg look a likes. I will wear multiple pairs of socks first. Hee hee.

C said...

haha! love it! love them! Uggs are my favorite!

Newlywed Next Door said...

I'm a firm believer that uggs derive their name from ugly. However... I do own some and they are SO practical for ski trips or other cold weather situations. Living in so cal I just couldn't understand the ugg craze. I mean even in the winter its like 62 degrees out and uggs with mini skirts... don't even get me started. Lol.

mrs.leah.maria said...

Hah! I feel the same way about them, but still haven't caved to the price. :(

A Belle and her Beau said...

yay for your new warm boots. I have the target knock-offs!

bekah said...

hahaha I guess warmth is more important than style!

And seriously...you guys are too cute!

Rachel said...

I have an Uggs backpack purse...it's pink and I love it!

You both look so cute in that pic...not to mention your boots!

Mojito Maven said...

Whitney said...

So cute! You will love them!!!

The Reality of Happily Ever After said...

Ahhh!!! you took the plunge!! LOL -- I still can't bring myself to wear them...

Jennifer said...

Your knock offs look real!

1 Hot Dish said...

I totally know how you feel about UGGs, I finally broke down and bought some too and...I love them! They are so warm and cozy! They are wonderful and I wear them all the time! :)

Thank you so much for prayers for my family, it really means a lot. :)

SassyEngineer said...

I still don't own a pair, but I have to admit that my SIL got a cute pair for Christmas that I kind of like. They are more of a sweater material. Anyway, I love the picture of the two of you :)

Megan said...

I love my Uggs - they are amazing!!!

Elizabeth said...

I would love to get a pair. Oh and I left something for you on my blog :)

The Pink Chick said...

I am so glad you are enjoying your Uggs! I haven't crossed over yet, but the colder it gets the more appealing they become!!!

Mrs. McB said...

I love my UGGs so much!! Good choice!

Sweetbabs said...

I am glad you got the knock offs. I couldn't bring myself to spend that much either. Although my sister did just buy a pair that are super cute, not ugly at all. It must be a new design cause they were chic and not massive like the other ones. Yeah for warm feet.

Casey said...

I wear so much crap living over here that I swore I never would, Uggs included. Me and my Uggs and skinny jeans are warm though! :)

Carrie said...

I love my Uggs! Cute picture of ya'll by the way!

Ashley said...

i'm still revolting against them! :-) but your hair looks very cute!

amberbaldridge said...

I'm so glad you bought the knock offs! The real ones are waaaaaay too expensive!

Janet said...

Oh NO. I can't believe you gave in!!!

Jenny.Lee said...

I haven't broken down and bought Uggs...yet. ;) Thanks for the picture comment!

Megan said...

I loveeee my boots!! (I can't realy say uggs cause mine are the knock off too!) They are JUST as warm!!

Shanny said...

Ha at first I couldn't stand them either but I'm dying to buy me a pair too! Glad your feet is warm =)

Tasha said...

Another one of my blog friends has fallen into the Ugg trap! Nooooooo!!!!! ;-) With that being said, I'm glad you like your shoes and your feet are nice and toasty warm. At least you have the excuse of cold weather to wear these shoes! People around the South wear them when it's 70 degrees outside.

tootie said...

Enjoy your new boots! I don't have a pair, but I hear they are awesome!

Emily said...

i wear my uggs almost every single day:) Love them:) Cute pic of you two!!

Denise said...

I hate spending money on shoes, too and while I agree that I think Uggs are ugly, I also have a knock off pair of boots that are ugg-ish. At least we weren't suckers and didn't pay retail!

Steve Stenzel said...

"Warm" usually trumps "looks" with my wife too!!

;)

Mrs. Not-so-Domesticated said...

That is so funny! Sounds like something I'd do. I wasn't a huge fan of UGGs but my hubby got me a pair of fuzzy boots and I love them..

Mrs. S. said...

Uggs...I don't know about those things. Now, if I were going to a ski resort, maybe. Just being here in Midwest, USA. No.

The pic of you two is so nice!!

Life at the White House said...

glad you enjoy my blog!!!

and i love the quote on your header!

Pleasant Drive said...

yep, they're growing on me, too. i like the casual pic of you two!

Mrs. Nurse said...

I really do think everyone will get sucked in by them eventually, ha!

N. said...

Me too! I hated them, mainly bc everyone seems to have them, but then I found out why: they are so dang comfy and warm! And they do grow on you; I think they're cute now. I refused to pay for the real thing, though, so I have knock-offs, too.

morewineplease said...

I totally thought they were uggly at first too! Now my oldest and i both got a pair for Christmas, they are amazing~

Liana said...

i LOVE uggs! so worth the money, couldn't have happier little toes :)

The Pink Potpourri said...

i totally agree with everything you said...so where can i find these awesome knock off uggs?

That Fresh Feeling said...

I don't have Uggs....but i have a pair rocketdog's that are pretty awesome.

Also, i have a pair from land's end in black that i got like 5 years ago....and they are so comfy and warm.

Your new boots are awesome...hope you enjoy them.

high five for warm boots in the winter!

Lump said...

I've been debating on some Uggs... but can't do it. My obsession with designer jeans gets in the way.

love the new pics on the blog. :)

mamas smitten said...

I live in my Uggs. My husband calls the UGGly! I them on right now!

Kim & Ryan said...

Uggs have been growing on me, too. I never used to like them, but now I do.

Super cute!

Sarah said...

I love my uggs too!! They are the most comfortable shoes I own!

Jules said...

I love my Uggs. They're not the most fashionable thing, but they're warm and comfy.
I love the boots you got! They look just like Uggs. As long as they're warm and comfy, that's all that matters :)

Maria said...

That is a great picture of you guys, and congrats on your Ugg-a-likes!!

katie beth said...

Wahoo! I love Uggs. Have yet to wear them with a short skirt (for the world: it thankfully won't ever happen) or tucked into jeans (which I would like to do, but the Mr. is terrified that I will!!)...

I have two pair (one that look like cowboy boots) and they were recently on sale and I was sooooo tempted... but refrained for the time being.

Kaitlin said...

such cute shoes. can your man teach my hubby to convince me to buy uggs! ;)
