Monday Remix: Nautical and The New Boots

Hello, everyone!

I admit, I´m very late in the knee high boots game. You see, I have very short legs and extra thick calves( there, I just said it) so finding a pair of tall boots in my size which zips up to the top is like the holy grail. So I laid low and waited for a while until I found the one. One day while window shopping with a friend, I found this pair of tall suede boots at 70% off and it zipped right up without a fuss. Could this be it? You guessed it right!

As for my outfit, I went for srtipes and a full skirt and wore the tall bootsfor the first time. I´m kinda not digging this look because I look so short but I didn´t have the time to change into a shorter skirt so I just put on a shorter jacket and got on with my day. More ways to style this number coming soon.

Oh and can I just say what a gorgeous day we had last Sunday? No, not yesterday´s Sunday  because it was still cloudy but  the other week´s Sunday. The blue skies made me skip while walking and these tall boots too because they´re so comfy.

Anyway, as for what I was wearing, I first wore the striped long sleeved sweater last December on my trip to Alicante and the navy blue skirt early spring of last year. While I could wear the striped top all year round, what I really need to wear more is the skirt. I only wore it once last year.It´s from a Mango outlet store for 6 euros( I think). So cheap and it´s lined too!

Enjoy the first day of the week, you all and congratulations to one of my fave actresses of all time, Cate Blanchett for winning the Oscars! She was exceptional in Blue Velvet and I knew she would scoop all of the awards and doesn´t she look divine in her gown? :)

Cute outfits:) I have thick calves myself (and I'm 5'4 so average short lol) and finding boots for myself is hard as well . We had awesome spring flip flop weather yesterday (Sunday) and now it's snowing. Weird! Thanks for your comment on my maxi dress ;)
