I’m currently in picturesque Stowe, Vermont for a ski week, and I don’t know what I’d do without my Penelope Chilvers “Impossible” snow boots. They are super comfortable, warm, and chic. Best of all, the two-way grip soles pretty much guarantee that you won’t slip in the snow. The boots have water-repellent wool felt uppers, and the innovative toe design is slightly upturned to allow for a cushion of warm air to circulate. Apparently Kate Middleton wears Penelope Chilvers, and if they’re good enough for a princess, they’re good enough for me.

Now if I could just get myself out of the cozy lodge and onto the slopes…
