Shoe lust

I have yet again been caught in the autumn/winter merry-go-round of trying to find a pair of nice looking, comfy, practical winter boots.
My problem i two-fold. 1. I always get this image in my head of what I want them to look like and I'm very particular. This year I want some sort of biker style boots, but not too clunky and not too many straps and whatnot (or chains, or buckles). I don't want any bling on them (and a shiny buckle is bling to me) or for them to be to flashy. But I still want them to be stylish and not just plain, boring boots. 2. I have skinny legs. Or at least the calf bit. And I know I'm not the only one but I can't for the life of me figure out how others do it... Most of the boots I've found and liked are huge on my legs. And, no, I don't want really tight-fitting ones. And, yes, I know that slightly large is kind of the style. I just want to be able to wear them with leggings or maybe a skirt without looking like both my legs could fit in them.
Since all the shops I've been to (and I've been to a few) don't have anything that ticks enough boxes on my rather long list, I've been trawling the net. And look what I found today! Ok, they are not really what I'm looking for and they are a bit out of my price range, but they have pockets! I love pockets! I have actually been thinking about how great it would be to have boots with pockets on them...
Ok, I have a confession to make: I'm a pocket-holic. I can't resist them. If I see a dress or a skirt with pockets, I have to have it! I think that's how I've ended up with so many skirts and dresses for someone who never really wears skirts or dresses.
Anyway, I'm off to dream of boots with pockets now!
