Pulling off Thigh-High boots


I have been lusting over a pair of thigh high boots for a while now. The pair I got last year was a lot shorter (just went over the knee) and it rarely stayed up so just became a scrunchy style instead. However, I was not going to spend the money for a high heeled pair since I will rarely get to wear them. Therefore, against my own rules I bought a cheap pair from Charlotte Russe for $40 (plus they had 'buy a second pair for $10' sale). At least they are not faux leather which I really can't stand. Faux suede is much more bearable as it is a soft microfiber type material. And they are platform so the heel does not feel as high as it looks. Of course they look killer under a mini skirt which is what I was going to wear but felt it was too much for going out without my husband so opted for jeans. Later realized should have worn the skirt as I was the only person in pants. The inspiration for the combo came from a 'ann taylor loft' ad where the girl wears black top, jakcet over dark grey jeans and black boots. I added 'rocker chic' acessories with the necklace, bracelet and ring. Used my new purple lizard clutch which was part of a b-day gift from my best friend. Oh, must comment on the nail polish which I love. It is a black with a deep purple hue from N.Y.C. Added a silvery colorful glitter gloss on top.

Saturday's Activities: Sent off my son with my husband on a 'father-son' camping trip early in the morning. Spent the whole day with just my daughter. First went to an indoor play area and had lunch. Then went to a fun mall and had her nap in the stroller while I shopped (hence the boot purchase). Of coures I ended up buying more clothes for the kids than myself. Once my daughter woke up we did the mall playground, jumpy and the train. Went home to change and get ready. I wore this same outfit but instead of boots wore converses and no jewelry or make-up. We picked up my dad and went to Target as she has been begging for a little baby doll and a stroller found a great set for her and had dinner there. Then went to my mom's so they could take over my daughter while I got ready to go out with  my cousin, sister and her friends... I have not been clubbing in ages. Apparently the dress code is 'regardless of your body type or size find the tightest and the minniest dress you can find and wear it with high heels'. As I said I was the only one in pants. It was great to dance away the night though wile knowing my mom will wake up with my daughter and I could sleep in. We stayed until closing. It was great.
