Isn’t it weird how you can be covered almost completely from head to toe but still feel like an outfit is great for date night? That’s what this one feels like to me. The only skin I’m showing is a bit above my camisole with the open back, but the OTK boots, my fave skinny jeans, and the choker say, “Let’s go out for dinner and drinks!”

I’m so glad I got a pair of OTK boots this year. I already wore them with a simple sweater for a casual look in this post, and I’ve been seeing them on Instagram in the most adorable ways lately. The pair I’m wearing here has a little bit of a slouch to them, and since the heel is so thick they’re actually really comfortable to wear out all night.
In case you didn’t already notice, let me tell you the two new things I’m trying out here in this look. First, a choker. This is one of those trends that I really liked on other people, especially the little bow ones, but I didn’t think it was for me. Luckily, my friend Clare of the makeup blog Winging it With Clare has a fat neck and gave me this black one that didn’t fit her. It almost doesn’t fit me so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was made for children instead of adult necks, but I digress! The point is I’m really digging it, and I think I’ll keep wearing it. Thanks, Clare 😉
And the second, while it may not seem like a big deal to you but has totally changed my hair routine, is the middle part with my hair. I really like it here with the soft waves, but when my hair is straight and parted in the middle I look like Shemp from The Three Stooges! Or a wannabe Kardashian, which isn’t really what I’m going for. I’ve been wanting to give my hair a good chop, so the middle part is just something different to hold me over until I can get to the salon.
I’ll be heading off on a ski trip this weekend, so follow me on Instagram to see how many spiked hot chocolates I have before tumbling down the slopes!
