When it comes to thigh high boots, I’ve always had trouble finding a pair with the perfect fit. So every year when fall rolls around, I’d find myself searching for that perfect over-the-knees boots….but search no more because I think I found my sole mate! Perfect heel height, perfect comfort level with hidden platform, perfect soft suede, perfect little laced up in the back so I can loosen or tighten for the perfect thigh high fit!

Funny short story: When I was trying these boots on, I casually mentioned to the sales associate that I’ve always had problems finding the right OTK boots because I have thick legs and thighs. She immediately disagreed (eyes-wided, lips-frowned and all) and told me I do not have big legs and I shouldn’t worry…as though it was a bad thing…I wasn’t fishing for a compliment and I think she was nice, but it makes me sad to see that even nice people can get influenced to believe that being healthy and having meat on their bones is considered a bad thing…It gets worst. She then told me that having skinny legs will look better in high heels, skirts and boots. I can’t help but laugh and I tried not to be offended because she was really, really older and I guess she just had an ancient way of thinking.

Luckily I’m kind of stuck in my own ways of thinking and told her actually thick legs are pretty damn sexy in heels, skirts and boots. :) How many young women who may already be suffering from body issues are put in situations like these each day to not like their bodies just because someone thinks their body parts are not the perfect fit for a certain style or trend? This brought me back to my post about Body Image and the Mean Girls...I have more to say, but I’ll leave it here for now since it’s 4AM and I’m feeling sorta loopy. xo

Have you ever had a shopping experience where someone either intentionally or unintentionally made awkward comments about weights and sizes? I love to hear your stories!

Oh those fugly overalls. You know, the comfy, classic one piece denims with those buckles that was totally “cute-sie,” way way back when your mom used to forced you into as a toddler. There were short ones, long ones, floral ones, colorful ones, corduroy ones and sometimes we’d even leave one strap unbuckled. Well, they are back!! But as fashion always has a way of playing tricks on us, it went from fug to fab. Well, at least for me it did.

Casually styled, overalls can be dressed up with a pair of heels and blouse or dressed down with a crop top and pair of Chucks. However way you wear them, overalls are fun and can give your style a playful edge. It’s no wonder I can’t resist their cozy charm.

Here are some of my favorite looks. Which one is your favorite?

The Basics


I’m a big fan of prints and colors but sometimes it’s nice to go back to basics. My basics go-to items usually consist of jeans, tank, blazer, a hat for those low maintenance days and flats to run around in. Also, I always like to bring along a pair of heels just in case we end up going somewhere in the evening. Trust me, this’ll prevent you from buying unnecessary new shoes every time.  :)

Sweet November

When it comes to clothes, it’s important that I find pieces that can be worn more than once and in a variety of ways. I love to remix, recycle and remake existing things in my wardrobe.  This skirt I’m wearing is actually the same skirt I wore in my last post. I wore it as a mini by pulling it up and folding it under. The material was pretty snug so the fold stayed in place. This time, I wanted to wear it as a long pencil skirt. It was a quick fix for a different look. Which length do you prefer?

Whenever sweet November rolls around I know autumn is truly here. It is the time of year when all the leaves has transformed in it’s most beautiful shades of sunset yellows, reds, orange and gold. I can feel the slight breeze in my hair and the warm sun kissed against my neck. But why is November so sweet? For me, it’s because it’s the start of the holidays. Thanksgiving and Christmas, my favorite time of year for so many reasons.

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday so far and have a safe weekend!
