These boots are made for walking

I went out for  what Japanese people would call "home party". A friend of mine opened her home for a nice lunch. We decided to cater for some Indian food and we finished the meal with some creamalicious "Choux cream" (aka cream puff). As usual I ate way too much but I do not regret it. Two years ago, I would have killed to be invited to a home party with a bunch of ladies. Now, I am attending like it is nothing. Hell, I even decline some because I am too tired. I should be more grateful. Life! Pfffffff! (like the French would say)

Anyway, here is what I wore:

Cream knit hat - H&M
Black coat - can't remember but it is very old (over 7 years)
Long cardigan - H&M
Blouse - thrifted 390 mart (but it is from Target, I miss that place)
Long sleeve tee - Nissen
Pants - FOS Malaysia
Boots - Shimamura

This is the first time in my life that I am wearing a belted sweater. I thought that they were not for me because of my figure and all. But actually once I tried the thing, I liked it. It does not look as good as I would have liked it to look but I guess I will just have to either diet or live with it

These boots! Le sigh! They would not have been the type of boots I wanted for myself. Actually if you read this, you would know that I am all for feminine and delicate boots. But these boots talked to me at first sight. Actually I did not buy them the first time I saw them at Shimamura. I have a thing now: if I see something at the store that I like but I am not sure about it, I wait for a while. If I come back to the store and it is still there, then I will get it. So I did the same with those boots. I went home hoping to forget about them but they were constantly on my mind. I went back and they were still there. What was I supposed to do?

Two things attracted me in them: first they looked sturdy enough. The heel is very sturdy. I thought that these boots would last more than a Winter. Actually I am praying that they last more than 8 Winters like my last boots. The second thing I liked was the price: on sale for a 1000Yen.
So far I wore them twice and walk more than a mile with them. Let me tell you this: they are made for walking: light enough that I do not feel them and sturdy enough to keep me warm. And the military design is just a little edge that is going to spice up my life. What say you? Aren't they the coolest thing ever?

Drool at some pics of the nice lunch we had:

Chicken curry (the red thing), Paneer (the green thing) and some flavored rice

Strawberries (with chocolate) and Choux cream from Gateaux de Voyage
