Despite the weather being exceedingly blistering, I love a good boot and will wear it no matter what the weather decides it wants to be for the day. They may not be the original ChloĆ© boots, but for $20, I'm pretty darn pleased with my Rubi Shoes knock-offs {don't judge.}

Being so blindly obsessed with my femininity (pretty dresses and skirts with a hint of tulle and sequins, anyone?), I'd forgotten about my tweenhood. Yes, I was a tween who was basically a tomboy. Believe me when I say I bought a pair of "Girlz Rule" baggy jeans with a chain on the side because I thought I was being the most hip and on-trend fashion tragedy savvy girl in my fourth grade class, but, clearly, I was anything but savvy. I didn't know it at the time, but when I think of my lowest fashion moment, that's definitely up there. Although, I did get a compliment from a guy I was crushing on - (but now I'm starting to re-think whether there was even any source of sincerity.)

After elementary school, I continued on, but simplifying my style to being a "jeans and t-shirt" kinda girl.
Until 8th grade, I found my style evolving to something new. Something interesting. Something I was liking. It turned feminine.

As the years went on, I found myself loving the idea of being in pretty dresses and wearing a flirty skirt. it certainly was fun being a girl! I grew up being such a girly-girl and being an avid lover of pink, until I hit an age where I thought obsessing over Hello Kitty and being in love with the colour pink was no longer "cool".

Well, clearly that's all changed now. I openly admit I'm obsessed with pink. Pink everything is my dream!
For a while, I swore off any tomboy related outfits. I wanted to stay true to my pink roots.
All that, until recently where tomboy was back to being trendy. I don't do it to be trendy, but being a fashion follower and a blogger, some trends, you have to try to see if you'll like it. If not, at least you know your place.

So the short story behind this outfit was basically, I wanted to see what the tomboy style would feel like again, but twist it with a bit of femininity. Nothing says girly like a flirty skirt and a red lip.

Until my next post,
