Happy New Year

It is not too long before we welcome a new year, 2015 and I am more than looking forward to a better, bigger and fabulous year ahead. I know that I been MIA here in the blog not by choice but because my body sometimes just give up and I need to take some rest here and there and of course the holidays ! The whole family had colds and flu over the holidays and we are now just recovering and thankful. Hopefully my eye infection will also get better and better so I can take decent pictures without my swollen eyes. 
May the new year brings all of us with endless laughter, joy, great health and love. 
Thank YOU from the heart.

Touches of gold

The thing about wearing OTK boots for me is to keep everything in your outfit simple. The boots itself is already a statement, therefore the rest of the outfit should just play a secondary role. I want a look that is less busy, more cohesive and not complicated. It may have been a monotone outfit but the texture play a big difference. I say it over and over in almost all my post but I think it makes dressing up so much fun and make us somehow a pro in mixing textures and prints. I am a fan of an all black ensemble but I like to add some spice to it. Case in point, some gold touches. Easy peesy, if you ask me. Out the door in no time. I like color, I like print and textures but we always go back with the basic of staying in one solid color. I called it cleaning the palette and start with something new tomorrow. 
I hope you like it. 
Thank you from the heart.

Coatigan

Lighter than a coat but thicker than a cardigan. Talking about "coatigan", the hybrid child of a coat & a cardigan. This lovely piece has been hanging on my closet since last year and waiting to get some attention. The reason being might be because I even underestimate it's power to keep me warm. But a  lunch outing with my husband was a perfect day to wear it for the first time. Boy, I was wrong.  It is comfortable, non itching & definitely keeps warm on a not so harsh winter day. If not too obvious, I been playing with the contrast of prints and textures and it is undeniable. 
 I had fun dressing up, can you tell? And I had fun shopping in my closet too....
Wishing you a wonderful day with lots of love and smile :)
Thank you from the heart.
