So i caved and bought a pair of stuart weiztman 5050 boots. I’m 99% of the time a deal finder and a sale shopper, but I’ve always had such a hard time finding a pair of boots that fit my ankle area. My feet are not small, so when I get a pair of boots in size 7.5 or 8, the ankle area is always too loose. The 5050 boots fit so much better! To compensate for the price tag on these, I’m wearing a pair of $4 tights (originally $30, on sale to $10, then to $4!) from Dynamite.
The metallic brick red red lipstick I’m wearing is the supreme shine line by shu uemura. It’s much more moisturizing than regular lipsticks. The finish is less opaque, so it leans a bit towards a lip gloss but with much more pigment.

Wearing ankle pants has been an obsession of mine this Fall. I’m 5’5″, I’m not short, but I’m not super tall with long legs either, so showing a bit of ankle helps to “elongate” my legs. My 6′ tall husband taking photos from top down doesn’t help either! Showing some ankle and wearing super skinny pants with more of a shorter crop shirt really helps too! I thought that I’d hate boxy tops, but I found this one by Dex that’s boxy yet flowy, so I find it much more flattering.
Black on black on black can seem a bit gothic, but not with a fun red lip and bright red nails! Oh, and don’t forget a touch a sequins and sparkle on the ears.

I normally get up super early in the morning so that I could have some time for myself before my little boy wakes up; I was online window shopping at 5:30am while preparing a PowerPoint for my class while my little one was still asleep and came across these navy python pants on the Joe Fresh website – I love them! I have to admit though, I had to modify them a bit. I had them hemmed into ankle pants and had to throw them in the dryer to tighten them a bit. But now they fit perfectly and great to wear with ankle booties. They look great worn with a simple cropped sweater and a statement necklace.
My dear husband filmed and took photos outside our home with baby monitor in one hand! Gotta love him!

For the autumn season, I love wearing different tones of grey. Pairing it with dusty pink adds and a cool pink lipstick is a perfect way to pretty is up and to add an accent colour. With this unpredictable Fall weather, layering is most practical and stylish rain boots are great for the drizzle we’ve been getting and for playing outdoors with my little one!
