Happy Cyber Monday! Hope everyone's holiday break was great!

I am in love with my new riding boots that I scored from Target on-line. Mini story behind them - I always had the absolute hardest time looking for leather boots that will fit my calves... granted that I'm short but my calves are slightly big and buying knee-high boots that'll allow me to have room to wear thick socks or skinnies is really slim. I just can't get them up past my calves!! Does anyone else have this problem?? I only have a pair or two that has been squeezed in but hardly any room... So when I saw these riding boots on my friend who has a similar situation as me, I got super excited and had to get them! It's an amazing find to get boots that'll fit (with room!) and look great at the same time. lol! So I will probably be wearing them quite often in my future outfits. ^__^

When I was in San Fran, I saw a lot of girls sporting this style of the cotton mini skirt with leggings. So I of course then wandered straight into H&M and bought a few in different colors. I love it because it's comfy and great to layer with for the cold weather. A nice simple look without putting a lot of thought into it. haha..

Who's on-line shopping right now for the great deals??

  6. Gorgeous! I have the opposite problem with boots, they usually don't fit my calves and look like buckets on me! Those ones are such a good find, they look great on you!

  24. I know exactly how you feel! I've been having problems getting my calves to fit into most boots and coincidentally, my favorite pair of boots that actually fit me are from Target as well! I got them a few years ago but I still love them! I get so embarrassed when I try on boots at like Nordstroms and my calves don't fit as the sales associate is standing by hahaha!

  77. I know how it feels about those boots. Given that we are petite so that is another challenge. Mine would be the shaft most of the time. It will fit perfectly on calves but the shaft is too long. I found mine from Halogen at Nordstrom and it fits me great. I love this whole look on you. Screams comfy !

  85. I totally understand you because I go through the same issue when I try to find boots! In fact, the ones that you've seen a lot lately on the blog I have had them for +2 years and when I found them in Aerosoles, I got them in black and brown because they have two zippers to extend the calves area! Or I just resort to buy a bigger size! The ones you have in here are really cute, it fact, I really like them with a skirt and leggings! It's a really chic look!
