I took my time to get into the whole “Over the knee” ( OTK) boots trend. Saw it reign over the blogosphere and among celebrities and just about anyone. I wasn’t too sure I could find one that did not creep into the way-too-sultry side of fashion. But the wait came to a halt when I found these gorgeous Melina Over the knee boots through Gilt. They are super comfortable, in trend for fall and not anywhere near as expensive as the50-50 Stuart Weitzman boots.
Keeping in trend with my colorful fall style, I colorblocked these boots with pinkish coral skinny jeans similar to these gorgeous red ones.Word of caution, they tend to stretch a good bit, so size down if you are interested. As the temperatures are rapidly dropping, I am now heavily relying on my turtle neck layering tops as they are versatile in keeping me warm and easy to layer on without adding bulk. I love this crop top version that can be so easily worn with just about any outfit.
Subtle details of an LBD I love with colors of this season to add warmth and tad bit of interest in the outfit. Herve leger’s are extreme curve hugging dresses as we have all seen on the Kardashians. To make a rather deep neck dress more appropriate for the current weather, I chose to wear the crop sweater on it with matching accessories to complete the outfit. I absolutely love the criss cross ribbon details on the side of the dress, because to me, it adds a slight bit of interest without any exposure. Completely my kind of thing.
I try to improvise when I do not have the means to do what I would do normally. In this case, the loss of daylight and a long day wearing an outfit, I really wanted to document and write about. So I found a place with a load of “day light” bulbs and improvised. Anyways, coming to the color combination of the outfit. I really went out of my experimental zone to wear this with the mint pumps because as much as I love these pumps, this combination was totally new and my source of inspiration was an article from Instyle magazine from months ago. And guess what, it actually works. I absolutely love the combination of light mauve with light mint. They somehow seamlessly work well with each other. A surprise hit combo in my mind.
It must be something in the air, that I am categorically moving towards more pastel shades for fall instead of the traditional burgundy, burnt orange or cypress for that matter. I find it quite refreshing as a matter of fact. Sometimes a palette cleansing is very necessary.

Part 2 of the last post. Wearing this red velvet blazer a little differently for an evening out with friends or family. Red velvet and leopard are both in trend for fall and the upcoming festive season, so making the most of it is only logical!
