OTK

 When this OTK(over the knee)boots trend first came out, I really wanted to try it but on the other hand I am quite intimidated. I procrastinate but I always keep it my mind. You know I am petite & that is something that I always take into consideration when dressing for my body type. An OTK boot I think is a trend that is unforgiving. Plus, the high heeled types has this stigma of a hooker/street walker look and a trend by choice. It's you like it or you don't. Luckily this trend has been coming back every Fall/Winter for the last few years and I gave it another try. My first one(see previous post here) was a low heel and have enjoyed it so much. Tall, sleek & great for lots and lots of walking. Since it is so trendy, I thought it was enough. I got the sleek look that I was looking for and do not want to fork too much on such a trendy piece until this one...... A high heeled, pointy, great details and affordable. All of a sudden I have the change of heart. While at the checkout counters browsing on a fashion mag, I saw this wallet friendly alternative. I gave in, order it anyway and now I can even be more happier.
Since the boots is an statement by itself, I keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple. I just let the boots do the talking. A subtle hint of color to a monochrome ensemble through this pastel vest adds another texture and dimension to my whole look.
I think it is a perfect get up for a date night with my favorite man. 
What are your thoughts? Brutal or not, they are all acceptable by me :).
Happy Monday everyone.
Thank you from the heart.

Out takes

The only complain I get from my husband about blogging is that he takes too many darn pictures. Well, it doesn't if he stops snapping these pictures below. These photos that never made to the blog until now.    My husband likes to take my pictures when I am at least anything but posey posey and sport his so called "fake smile". Say what???? I have a fake blogger smile? I didn't even know I do have. I can chew his head off but I will be nice because Santa wants me too, ha ha ha....
 On another thought, maybe I should ! 
Whether he likes it or not, he's involve in my blogging world because I refuse to use a remote control. Why would I when I know I can rely on him and my son to do it, well force favor or not- I will take it. 
Have a fun weekend everyone. Stay warm and comfy.
Thank you from the heart.

Me and my son are playing around after the shoot, we're doing some silly dance. 
It doesn't surprise to me these on the bunch. 
And there goes the closed eyed pic. I've got many of these. I swear, I don't do it on purpose.
And there it is.... the staring from the unknown. I am actually looking at something and my husband thought it is my pose, lol.
He calls this my more natural and not camera conscious smile. 
Admit it other bloggers out there, you have done these too in your blog. Walking back & forth on the same place. Totally understandable to him. 
Aside from the dog photo bombing me, have no idea my husband was behind. My son didn't say a word. Found out after downloading the pictures. 
My payback and he will kill me for this !

School girl

Hello everyone. How was your week so far? One more days till the weekend so I know that you can do it & survive this week's rut :). It was cold enough for me to wear this coat that I got on sale last year from Zara. Whenever they have sale, it becomes the death of me. They have trendy and nicely made pieces so whenever Zara marks down their prices, I take advantage. As for today's outfit, I wore this the other day and did not noticed until I check myself out in the mirror before we go. Hey self, channeling that inner school girl within you today? Yes, kind of ! Well sorta but minus the pony tails and the plaid. Ok, maybe no- not really..... I am just too cold and wearing the OTK boots instead of these knee highs is not flattering and dwarfs me(i think). And when you are not blessed with a super model height to boast then anything that will remotely make me look even shorter is a no go. 
Sorry, it's that short people syndrome.....:)
 However, I will still like to wear them OTK boots one day....
Stay warm and safe.
Thank you from the heart.
xoxo
