Can you believe it?  I'm sick again.  I don't think I've ever gotten sick twice in one season!  I think all the traveling combined with staying with family that was also sick over the holidays did it to me this time.  I'm doped up on cold medicine and cough drops and feeling so woozy that it's making me forget the fact that my throat really hurts.  Can you believe I actually got dressed to go to work this morning?  I would've called in sick from the beginning except I had an early morning meeting with my boss that I couldn't miss.  We both decided that it was best for me to go home shortly afterwards and here I am, lying snuggled under warm blankets, writing up a short blurb before I try to sleep off this sickness.  My mantra is: Sleep Fixes Everything.  I can't wait to wake up and feel better.  ^_^

As for my outfit, I love wearing white in the winter.  Be it pants or skirts, I will wear them even if you're not supposed to.  There's just something so clean and simple about a nice white color that makes it a perfect complement to the darker winter wardrobe colors.  And it's a little hard to see in the pictures, but I love these tights with the bow design in the back.  It's so unexpected, fun, and a little flirty all at the same time.

Ok, now I'm off to bed to sleep off this sickness! 

P.S. I am organizing  a blogger meetup for DFW gals on Saturday, Feb 26!  The first 5 people who confirm can also come to a Dior event that I won from Allure magazine hosted on the same day.  Each person will receive a $20 gift card to use towards Dior products, all thanks to Dior and Allure magazine!  Email me if you're interested!  :)

  3. Feel better Kileen - I got sick during my trip too so I totally understand. You look fabulous like always, those shoes are incredible (I don't know how you wear them to work though...my feet would kill me and I sit all day) :)

    And the get together sounds like so much fun...wish I lived closer.

  7. How do you manage to look so good when you are sick? I love the white skirt with tights look on you, but I think it's hard to pull off.
    Get some rest and hope you will feel better soon.


  8. Stumbled on your blog - so glad I did, because I am also a small Asian girl (although I am 2 inches taller than you. I think that counts, though). You look great, and those heels are awesome!

  15. You have a talent for making inexpensive items look really expensive. I always look at your outfits and think "I bet that cost her a fortune", and then I scroll down and see you bought the pieces from Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe. I really admire that. You look great, as usual!

  25. Props for braving the cold with your sicky poo self! I hope you feel much much better soon. Eat lots of chicken noodle and chocolate. Even though that isn't really supposed to help anything...but it's always good just the same. You look hot as always girlie...rockin the heels and pencil skirt!

  26. Hi Kileen! :) I hope you get better! :( Flying and traveling is the biggest exposure to germs. But i hope you are getting rested and having comfort food :)
