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.

Bug eye

How is it that we only have 13 days more before Christmas and I have not start shopping yet. I was telling my husband yesterday that we start to sit down and see what we want to give to people. We don't have a list and it is gonna be a disaster if we go on without one. But he told me that not making a list and just finding stuff to give makes the holiday gift giving even more fun. Well, the man has a point.  Hopefully this weekend we can start with something. I hate to cut this short but I need to get going to go to my son's school luncheon. He likes it when mommy drops by at school and eat lunch with him. I also love that my oversized sunnies can hide my eye bags the size of Mount Rushmore and still looking fabulous. 
But I wish you all a fabulous weekend with lots of smile :) and hugs. 
Thank you from the heart.
