An Easy Way To Dress Up Your UGGs


It seems to me that there are UGG lovers and then there are UGG haters. I mean, am I right?? Well, so on that note…I happen to be a lover, believe it or not. I wasn’t always, though! Ha. No. There was a time when I definitely sneered at the thought of them and disapproved of their “UGG-ness”, but…then I went to college further up North, in the mountains, no less (where the Winters are bloody unbearable). All I could do was shut up and wear a pair…and now I can’t stop. They’ve made their way into my Winter line-up (and I don’t hate it).

Recently, I was introduced to the UGG Mini. Oh, hey hey! I had been strictly on the UGG Classic Short train for years, but I may never go back to them now. I think they work better with the majority of what I wear on a daily basis, which recently has been my favorite skinny jeans, a white tee and the coolest long cardigan. In fact, once I found that out it’s been hard to reach for anything else to throw on at 6:30 am, when its cold and I’m still half asleep.

outfit details

necklace: Custom ‘Carrie’ Name Necklace – this Carrie style necklace has been my favorite for years now. I love it.

earrings: Nickel & Suede Leather Earrings – my pair is a blue-ish teal, I think ( I got them a while ago). These look very similar. I really love all of my N&S earrings, by the way. Very lightweight and come in many different colors.

sweater: Cable Stitch Long Cardigan (heather blue, TTS) – comfortable, warm, gorgeous color…it’s a great statement, too. I think that it definitely uplifts the UGGs from very casual and boring to something more interesting and even chic. Dare I say that when UGGs are involved?


OH, and I found some other pretty long cardigans (and one a bit shorter) that would definitely help to dress up a pair of UGGs…

top: The Luna Coalition Soft Vintage Pullover (TTS) – the softest top I have ever worn. I wear it with allthejeans. It also comes in grey.

jeans: Levi’s 721 High Rise Distressed Skinny Jean (I always size up in Levi’s, wearing size 28) – I can’t get enough of Levi’s. I like the feel, the fit and the look. I have 4 pairs now.

boots: UGG Classic Mini II (chestnut, wearing size 10, but realized I should have ordered one size down…UGGs seem to fit pretty big) – these fit better and look better than other UGG styles, in my opinion. I was going to get the tall style, thinking it would be warmer and more fit for Winter, but S told me that they do not fit well over jeans, so…that was a no. I opted for the mini after hearing that and I am happy I did. Again, I’d size down by at least a half…if not a whole size.

FYI: S mentioned these UGG Ami Winter Boots. They are definitely different from the classic UGG, with a bit of platform and seam down the side. Also, I have had the Classic Short Boot for years and years (love the light brown color)…and they have served me well. I’ve had them for at least 9 years…and they are just now on their way out the door. No joke. They last.

backpack: Sole and Selene Carpe Diem Nylon Backpack (wine color) – so. Ladies. I am about to make a statement that’s almost unbelievable, BUT…I think this backpack rivals my beloved navy blue Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack. I know. *gasp* I love this thing. It has great pockets and a divider inside for keeping things (semi) organized. It’s amazing…and it comes in black, olive, grey and the coolest blue.
