Ok, so the little munchkin does wear her Matilda Jane year round. You can have a dark dull winter or a bright festive one, we opt for bright and festive! The boots she is wearing are called Bogs. They are the greatest things ever! They are made for kids and adults, rated to 30 below, and come in several cute designs and colors. So far they have been the best winter boots, they keep her feet toasty warm and she can put them on herself. Yaaaay!
