Id love to take you! Watertower is right there, mag mile and gold coast!
I bought these 200$ cole haan boots but they were worth it. Waterproof, nike soles and grippy soles. They are also pretty-don't look like galoshes at all. I played in the blizzard w them last year and stayed dry. (Eta: nuts, I have super chickeny legs so idk if cole haans are too slim for you).
Invest in underarmour and leggings! They also sell ugg socks to keep ur toesies warm (the shoe itself will get ruined by salt and isn't waterproof).
And although I'm from here, I agree, its not that bad if you bundle up and I get cold very easily.
You must come to asw with a sticker that says "crumps" so we all know who you are
and can take you shopping.
