The Mommy Stylist

Put a spring in your step with this winter-friendly footwear

Women love shoes — probably because they always make us feel pretty and never make us feel fat. Unfortunately, cold-weather shoes often leave something to be desired, style-wise, so we found more than a few pairs of Mommy Stylist-approved options to get you through the sometimes dreary days of winter feeling fashionable and fabulous.


These booties have a vintage look — minus the dust and dirt. Wear them and you'll be "that mom," the one who looks cute even when she's running errands. Also available in black. ($67.99/6pm)

Fall in love with these patent (i.e., waterproof) animal-print flats. They work with dozens of outfits and easily take you from the office to the playground. ($52.93/Nordstrom)

Thank goodness Ivanka Trump has more style than her famous father. The unique folded bow detail on her Cece flats makes them look more expensive than they are. ($59.99/Piperlime)

The pewter shade of this funky lace-up bootie is just as versatile as black. ($39.94/DSW)

This could be the cutest sneaker ever. We love the gray-pink color combo and zipper detail. ($54.95/Nordstrom)

A good pair of knee-high boots look best with skinny jeans or leggings. Available in other colors. ($49.94/DSW)

Don't let men have all the fun; on-trend oxfords look great on women too. Wear them with skinny or straight-leg jeans rolled up to your ankle bone. ($109.95/Nordstrom)

A snakeskin print is as versatile as black but infinitely more exciting. The ankle strap makes it easier to chase the kiddos around. ($39/Zappos)

We dig the super sophisticated burgundy hue of this rain boot. It adds a touch of color, but, if you must, it is also available in black. ($79.94/DSW)

Who says waterproof can't be stylish? Lace-up boots are a hot trend, and this design is equally functional and stylish. ($39.94/DSW)

This retro-inspired style will earn you compliments all day long. Slip them on with black pants and a bright-colored silk blouse ($144.99/Modcloth)

A lace-up riding boot is our new go-to. Available in other colors. ($59.99/Modcloth)

An alternative to sneakers, these cute plaid flats are suitable for everything from sporting events to grocery shopping. ($47.99/Zappos)
