Sunday Funday!

So this is not going to be a very exciting post lol.  I don't know what's wrong with me, but I got sick again this week!  I don't know if it was still the same thing from a few weeks ago or a new virus  But I'm super annoyed.  I still had some lingering symptoms from being sick last month.  But I was stable for a few weeks so I thought it was all good.  Then early this week it all came back.  So I just went to the gym once and played tennis today which was the extent of my workouts this week.  It's just really important that I recover ASAP since the Memorial Day long weekend is coming up and the last thing I want to be is sick lol.  Therefore I'm not pushing my body at all!  I didn't take a rest week between month 16 and 17 of Get Glutes anyway so I will consider this a rest week.

Unfortunately, less workouts = less outfits.  But here we go!

Christian Louboutin Botalili Knee High Boot

I got some Christian Louboutin boots a few weeks ago.  =)  They are the Botalili 120mm knee high boot.  I've been needing (aka wanting) a pair of sleek black leather boots for years, and I've bought many.  But none have really turned out to be what I was looking for.  These really do fit the bill in every way.

I sized up to size 37 in these from my usual size 36.  But I usually do that with boots anyways.  These boots are suuuuper tight in the legs.  They are like compression boots lol.  But once they are on, they are basically like second skin.  I've never had boots quite like this!  They hug every curve.  I think they make my ankles look super skinny and fragile though.  But they do fit over skinny jeans, so that works for me.  But I think that if you have calves on the thicker side, these boots would not fit even if you size up.  On the other hands, if you have always felt most boots fit too loosely then these might just be perfect for you.  So that's something to keep in mind.  There are a few reviews for these on the Saks website that pretty much say the same thing.

I've already worn these boots a couple times!  I really like them.  They have a 20mm platform which is very thin.  So the overall height is 120mm, but they are equivalent to a 100mm heel.  That's right under 4 inches.  So they are actually very comfortable.  Here they are!

So as you can see in the last picture above, there is some elastic in the upper calf area.  There's not a ton of stretch, but it does help a little.  

I posted a picture with these boots on already, as seen here.  So you can see how they look on me and how tight fitting it is in the ankles!

I do like how sleek these look though!  Too bad the weather will be getting too warm for boots here pretty soon.  Then I will have to wait a year to wear these!  Noooo!  lol.

Sunday Funday!

I started Month 17 of Get Glutes this week.  I have been taking a week off in between each monthly workouts, but this time I decided not to because it took me so long to finish Month 16 lol.  Month 17 is a bit different from the past, because almost all the workouts are supersets instead of straight sets.  Supersets make the workouts go by much faster!  And I like switching things up.  So I'm pretty happy with it so far.

Monday 5/9 - Rest

On Saturday night, I went out to dinner at this restaurant called Estate in Santa Monica which was very good.  Then met up with some friends at a really ghetto bar/club called The Room.  Don't go there lol.  This is what I wore but I regretted it as soon as I walked into that venue.
