Over the last 3 years I’ve added 1 new pair of UGGs to my closet each year. THESE cardy boots were my gateway to a full blown UGG obsession. And then last year I got THESE slim profile boots. And then last month I bought THESE. So when Nordstrom asked me if I wanted to share about the UGG brand, it took me all of about .2 seconds to agree!
Let’s start out with the slim profile UGG boots that came out last year. I was actually introduced to them when UGG reached out and asked if I would review them, and I immediately fell in love. Basically, they went and fancied up their signature boot. They are everything we know and love about UGG, but now they are better. How are they better? Well, they are prettier and more feminine because they are MUCH slimmer. And if you are like me, you want everything on your body to look as skinny as possible. AND THAT INCLUDES YOUR FEET! 😉 This boot also has a bit of a wedge. Which I love. OH! AND THEY ARE WATER RESISTANT! Mine are the medium height, but there are 3 different heights and they come in several different colors.
Concerning sizing, I find these slim profile boots to be true to size. Last year I first ordered down 1/2 a size, like I had done with other UGG boots in the past, but they were too small. My normal 6 1/2 is perfect on me! The website suggests to actually order up if you are between sizes.
Once the temperature dips down, I wear them constantly. Here I paired them with my cranberry cowl neck pullover (this color sold out, but 2 other colors available) and my Wit and Wisdom black jeans. If you don’t have this pullover, you need to correct that asap. It’s soft, comfy, and you can wear it with leggings (as you’ll see later in this post).
I continue to receive e-mails about these jeans and people professing their undying love for them (and actually several different pairs of jeans from the Wit and Wisdom line). The ab-solution technology is truly amazing and we are all fans. The technology sucks you in (while still allowing you to breathe), and since they are women’s sizing (instead of junior’s sizing) they are a better fit for many of you that don’t feel juniors sizing works for you.

Let’s look at a lot of different outfits I wore just last year with my slim profile boots .
Here’s another picture from last year. My sister is wearing the tall Kara boots, and I’m wearing the middle height Amie boots. And see how they look great with both skinny jeans and leggings!
So if you you’ve been reading here for awhile, you know that I’ve actually been an UGG fan since 2014 when I bought THESE. I had never owned a pair of UGGs before then, but when at the family ranch, I put on a pair of Monica’s (Chris’s cousin’s wife) UGGs when we were sitting on her back patio because my tootsies were FREEZING. I couldn’t believe how warm they kept my feet, and I bought my first pair the next week. I initially went with the cardy UGGs because at that point I still wasn’t sure about the classic UGG look, but I’ve obviously come around on that.
The cardy UGGs can be worn as tall boots, or folded down and worn down around the ankles. (My favorite jeans ever are on sale HERE)!
Here’s a close up of them worn tall. Concerning sizing, these only come in 1/2 sizes, and I got a 6. I’m normally a 6 1/2…but sometimes a 6…and the 6s were perfect on me.
And here’s what they look like folded down. I love them both ways.
And just because, I wanted to show you that the tunic is long enough to wear with leggings. And I love my cardi boots with the graphite heather leggings.
The back covers all the necessary parts as well.
Click HERE for the Lattice Cardy boots. You can also find the regular Cardy HERE.
Here I am in just a couple of outfits from last year.
And in case you want to check out some of the other styles they have currently, I took some pics on my last shopping trip! Click HERE for the Meilani bow back boots.
Click HERE for the studded Cyd boot. I absolutely love the studs and that these have the little wedge as well.
Click HERE for the Tania. These make me want to walk go on a hike in cold weather. Just kidding. They make me want to put them on with pajama leggings and curl up by a fire while watching Sweet Home Alabama.
And if you haven’t checked out the UGG brand in awhile, you might not know that they also have other types of boots as well (that don’t look like the classic UGG). Click HERE for these heeled booties with great reviews. Several say they run small, so keep that in mind when ordering. And they just went ON SALE!
Click HERE for the Joely wedge boots.
Here’s a round up of some other UGG favorites. Just click on the little picture you are interested in!
Oh…I almost forgot to show you the UGGs I added to my closet just this month. I bought them because Shay wouldn’t stop talking about them. #shaytoldmeto I mean, I’ve been known to wear the other pairs I own with pajamas, but these are just so easy to slip on. And you can wear them out to the mailbox even though they are slippers because of the thick rubber soles. Click HERE for all of the slipper choices for both men and women (because they make GREAT gifts)! Click HERE for the slippers with the bows, click HERE for the slippers without. If you are a 1/2 size, I suggest sizing down. The insides will pack down with wear and they will stretch a bit, so even if they fill a little snug at first, they should be fine. (When I went up a 1/2 size, the back would slip off my heel.)
And girls, Shay and I like them so much that they might end up in a giveaway at the end of this month. A HUGE giveaway. #spoileralert 😉 A huge thanks to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post. And just for fun, if you are UGG obsessed like I am, I’d love for you to leave a comment telling us about your favorite pair!
p.s. HUGE SALE going on right now with lots of awesome basics at amazing prices!

I’m not surprised one bit. Shay can be a little bossy like someone else I know. ;). Haha!
Shay Shull says
I am Ugg obsessed too!!! Oh my goodness, I’m wearing a pair now. I’m basically always wearing a pair. LOVE!
Be super careful with red ugg slippers- I got mine slightly damp and walked across my carpet- noticed pink on my carpet and realized it was the dye from my slippers. I couldn’t get the dye out I contacted ugg to try to get a replacement pair in a color that won’t do that. I sent them in and they sent them back stating that once your uggs have been exposed to any water- no mater how little-they won’t do anything about it. The most expensive pair of slippers I have every owned!
Hi, Shirley! That’s terrible, but good to know about the brighter colors! I have friends with brighter colors and they’ve never told me they had any trouble, but it’s still good to know. Did you get your slippers through UGG or at Nordstrom? Nordstrom customer service cannot be matched, and if you bought them there they will most likely help you! Good luck! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
So fun! I just love my Uggs!!! I am with you on the Uggs, a fire, and Sweet Home Alabama!! 🙂
I’m with you that it took me awhile to get on the ugg train, and now i’m the conducter. I have 4 pairs. And I don’t even feel badly about that because I wear them all the time. My favorite are definitely the slim profile that you highlighted today. I got them last year and they are awesome.
Nicole Ghea says
Love my Uggs!! They are so comfy and warm! Can you let us know if that free people pullover is restocked in the color you are wearing?
I definitely will, Nicole! 🙂
I was never an Ugg fan until you introduced me to the slim profile boots. Then you introduced the sandals and like a good little follower I purchased (and purchased!) have you seen or tried the new slim profile style that looks a little like a work boot? What do you think? I have not seen it in person and am on the fence. I’d value your opinion.
I haven’t seen them, Renee. I’m headed to the mall tomorrow, I’ll see if I can try a pair on! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
I’m obsessed with uggs!! I got the Seldon riding boots two years ago and they’re so comfortable. Best part is they’re water proof! Its hard to rotate in other boots when they’re so fabulous!
I’ve worn Uggs for 10 years and love them! I pretty much put a new pair of slippers on my Christmas list EVERY year. I keep the old pairs for walking outside or taking to the farm and then keep the newest pair for inside wear only. 🙂 I’ve got a pair at my front door to be able to run outside or take the trash out. 🙂
Jenny Byrd says
I asked for a pair of tte ugh slippers ffr Christmas from Jon! I may need to get them sooner though 🙂 I love a good pair of Uggs.
My first pair of Uggs were the Cardy in black. My second pair are the Shaina Knit Cuff Booties in Chestnut Suede. I can not wait to buy my third pair 🙂
Britt Hensley says
I am wanting the UGG house shoes!! 🙂
Keisha Dawson says
I love my UGGs, and I am constantly “borrowing” my husbands house shoes. I’m really hoping a pair for me is under the tree this year!
Chris Bussone says
I have been wearing UGG slippers for awhile now (on my third pair) and I love them. I think this year I am going to have to get the slim version of the boot.Do you also have to size down in the boot?
I got my regular size in the slim profile! Xoxo
I bought the UGG Cobie II boots in black leather during the Anniversary Sale. Best boots I have ever owned! They are so versatile. I will wear them with dress pants when the weather turns colder and wear them with jeans now. Get so many compliments on them. They have a rather tall heel but are so comfortable because there is the trademark UGG shearling cushion at the pad of my foot. Soft AND warm! LOVE! Have to agree on the sizing. I am usually a 9-1/2 but went up to a 10 and am very happy with the fit,
Tara C says
I love my Uggs. I have several pairs. One thing I learned is that if you are a size 8 or smaller, you can purchase the child sized Uggs and save lots of money! I am a size 6 in the women’s, and a size 4 in children’s. They fit exactly the same, but the children’s sizes are much less expensive!
Kelly McNellis says
Thanks to your bossiness, I am a proud owner of the lattice cardy grey ones. I tell everyone it’s like walking on a cloud. They are so comfortable and I dress them with leggings, skinny jeans, and yoga pants. I’m even wearing them to work right now. If my budget allows, I would like to add another pair this winter. Thanks for all of your great finds.
Whitney Herrera says
Oh my, I LIVE in my UGG slippers. I have Coquette and wear them from November – April! LOVE! I also have the boots that are water resistant leather – love those and lived in them in NYC last year for New Year’s!
Holly Laceyxa says
I knoooooow this post was with Nordstrom BUT both versions of the cardi boots are on sale for $99 at DSW right now. Just sayin! ????
I noticed that Hautelook has Ugg right now, but will be ending in less than 24 hours. They might not have the styles you mentioned above, but could be an option for people if they want to try them at a discounted price. 🙂
Katie Allred says
Ugg had rain boots now! They have a fur lining on the bottom! I’m so excited for them! They’re for Christmas though so I haven’t worn them yet!
I have two pair of Dakota slippers and the Classic Boots. Love! I wear my slippers everyday!! Thanks for sharing about the Slim and Novelty. Worth looking in to.
Hi Sheaffer. Another excellent post. I have slightly wider calfs but I’m also petite. I adore the Bailey Button Uggs as those stretch out a bit. Also because of my small feet I can buy kids Uggs and save a little cash. I think you may also. Subtract two sizes from your size = 4.5. I wear a size 5.0 and bought kids size 3.0.
My son has the men’s Uggs slippers and at first I thought the price was a little extravagant… and then I stuck my foot in to try them on and nope, worth every penny!! And for a sporty 14 year old to wear Uggs slippers constantly, you know they must be good!
I’ve been an Uggs fan for 16 years. I went to college in MI so warm toes were a must. After wearing the usual classic tall and short, I discovered the now discontinued Brooks which were their first waterproof version. Very necessary in snow and rain. I have them in two colors black and brown lol. Looking forward to a pair of slippers or flats.
I am obsessed with the Kristin slim profile uggs- I now own two pair! One in black and the other in the camel. They are functional but still fashionable… I’m on a soccer field sideline every weekend and throw them on with a pair of skinny jeans. Effortless, cute and WARM! Bought them at Nordstrom and also agree that they have excellent customer service!:)
Shaeffer, have you tried the UGG rain boots yet??? They are amazing and dare I say, better then Hunter! They are much cheaper and they have fur in them!!!!
Fur on the inside? That sounds amazing!!!! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Hello! Do you know if the Kara boot is discontinued? I can’t find it anywhere!
Hi, Aurora! I haven’t been able to find them for over a year. 🙁 So yes, I’m guessing they are discontinued, but I have no idea why! xoxo
