Have you ever noticed that a woman's "I'll be ready in five minutes" and a man's "I'll be home in five minutes" are exactly the same?

This summer has been full of housewarming parties and I taken the opportunity to dress up a tad for them.  I've found that housewarmings are a good place for some of your more fashionable pieces that you don't wish to get destroyed.  Wearing some of your higher shoes is also more acceptable because there is less of a chance for you to trip over yourself and fall on your face OR suffer from painfully squished toes, since most of the time you're standing in one place or sitting (if you're so lucky to find a free seat).

This particular housewarming outfit is comprised mostly of items purchased on sale at Aritzia.  The skirt is BCBGeneration and is surprisingly versatile despite the crazy print.  It's also super comfortable due to the elastic band around my waist so I don't have to struggle unzip when doing some serious eating.  I was wearing these Rag & Bone boots when I tried on this exact outfit in the store and was immediately sold.  In my opinion, it makes such a difference trying on certain clothes with an elevated shoe when you're as short as me.  Most pieces somehow manages to look better with a pair of heels.  I think it has something to do with my legs looking less stumpy...

  22. Ooh i love the colours in the skirt, and it goes beautifully with the boots. I'll bet it is better to try things on with heels, sadly i rarely do because if I'm going to be walking around shops, I'll be in comfy heels!
