Over the knee boots

Mirror mirror on the hall

The architecture of the Walt Disney concert hall is spectacular.  Just look at these mirrored walls.  Its a blogger and photographer’s paradise.  (I think there were 5 different shoots along the building for the hour we were there).   If only LA traffic wasn’t as grid lock all the time, we would be here more often.  The less you have to drive, the better. Especially when you have a screaming baby in the back seat.  Thankfully, as Carlota has gotten older she has started to tolerate car rides……most of the time.  The problem has now become getting her fastened in her chair.  This is now a 5 minute challenge that consists of screaming, arching her back and squirming.  I’m sure you other mamas know exactly what I’m talking about.

Today’s outfit is one of my favorites.  A silk shirt, skinny jeans and over-the-knee boots; definitely one of my go-to looks.  I love the neck scarf and bow tie trend thats been getting a lot of popularity lately.  It’s a perfect accessory to transform your casual white shirt and jeans.  If you’ve been following my blog you will realize I’m all about having classic pieces in your closet that will last for years and adding “in trend” items to give a fresh outlook.  I frankly don’t have the closet space or the finances to constantly be shopping for new clothes weekly.  Instead I invest in pieces I know I will wear for years, and try to find the deals on items that I know may only last for a season.

What does your closet consist mostly of Trendy or Classic items?  Hope you had a great weekend.

With love,

Andrea

As soon as I saw this Rag & Bone sweater on the runway last year, I knew I had to have it.  Its perfection.  It has a school girl/preppy vibe with a sexy low cut V neck.  You can dress it up or down and wear it for almost every occasion.

For this post I decided to play up the school girl look and go with my leather shorts and over the knee boots.  I love how sexy and fashionable these boots are.  I had been on the hunt for the perfect over the knee boot, for about a year and finally took the plunge with these.  I was debating between another pair that had a thinner heel and pointed toe.  I opted for the Stuart Weiztman’s since I felt that the thicker heel and rounded toe would make the boots a little more causal.  When I splurge on a pair of shoes I want to be able to wear them as much as I can.   I figured the more casual pair would be perfect for my everyday style and would be more versatile for night and day looks.
