A week before Christmas and it’s finally starting to look like winter! As you can see, it’s looking a little stark outside these days as all the leaves have fallen and everything’s starting to hunker down for the colder months ahead. I kept my outfit simple yet warm as it was going to be a busy day filled with running errands outside early on that day and enjoying birthday festivities inside later on that evening. I was actually really excited that I could wear my fur snood as I’ve had this item for almost a month now but it just hasn’t been cold enough to warrant bringing it out. I kept the rest of the outfit very basic and was in a rush to get out of the house, but in retrospect would have added a bit more color and/or accessories to the look to make it pop. Either way, I was still loving the soft feel of fur all day!
And remember when I mentioned that my mom bought her first pair of skinny jeans thanks to seeing my pair? Well, here’s a picture of the two of us wearing our awesome black skinny jeans!
|My mom’s first pair of skinny jeans! Aren’t they lovely? 🙂|
So on to the festivities! Sunday was actually my mom’s birthday and we had a little celebration complete with birthday cake and all. Since we’re not having an Asian fruit cake for the wedding, we of course had to order one for her birthday! So here it is in all its frosting-filled glory:
|Me and the parents|
|I can confirm, the cake was delicious. 🙂|
Hope you guys had a great weekend!

The cake looks delicious (I can go for some right now). Your mom is gorgeous (I can see where you get good genes from) and those black skinnies look great on her (I haven't converted my mom yet but I hope I will soon!).
This is a very lovely post, Kileen. Looks and sounds like you and your parents had a great time. Many more merry days this holiday season to all of you :). My husband and I will be flying to San Francisco this afternoon. Looking forward to having some Chinese cake myself! I love the ones with chestnuts flavor.
Ahhh you and your mom are so cute!! I can see where you get your sense of fashion from. Looks like it was a great weekend 🙂
@Sydney they have chestnut flavored cake?!! oh man, i think i've been missing out…
mom and daughter! aww! Thanks for letting us see how cute you both look in skinny jeans.

You look so fabulous, Kileen!! <3 The snood looks amazing! I guess you got that because you couldn't find the H&M one? 🙁 This one looks more easy to wear anyway since it's a circle. 😛 The colour of that coat is GORGEOUS. I really like it..it flatters your figure really well.
omg is your mom wearing heels? She looks pretty tall next to her daughter who's wearing pretty high heel.s 😛 You ladies are beautiful!! Happy belated birthday to your mom! If you tweeted this, I think I might have missed it. haha

@The Little Dust Princess haha, you're exactly right about the ASOS snood! 🙂
and my mom insists on wearing heels everyday even though none of her friends do anymore. and yes, both my parents are taller than me (my mom is 5'4" and my dad is 5'10"). the rest of my extended family is tall too! i'm just the odd one out.
and thanks for my mom's bday wishes! i didn't get a chance to tweet much yesterday cause i was so busy with family stuff all day. 🙂
Simple Subtle Style says
Aw, how cute! I love how trendy your mom is!
Fashion Momma says
you and your mom are both GORGEOUS-
I love the simplicity of your outfit. they grey is so wintery and cozy, but really pretty, too! and of course, you always rock sky high heels and skinnies and look aMAzing! happy belated birthday to your momma! and merry christmas, too!
Lovely family pictures. Your mom rocks those jeans! You look great as always.
Aw, what a great picture of you and your Mom.
Great outfit, love the fur snood!
You and your mom are so cute! I can't believe you convinced her to get skinny jeans. I don't think my mom would ever be up for that!
your jacket is GORGEOUS, by the way. i love the color and the double breasted buttons. too cute! I can't believe you're rocking those heels in the winter too.
You and your mom are so cute! Once my mom saw my jeggings, she had to get some too. Aren't moms the best?
That cake looks delish and those photos with your family are so sweet. Everyone looks so happy.
Kileen you are beautiful just like your mom! She looks like she had an amazing time! I can't wait to see pics of your fiance! I get so curious to see who my blogger friend's significant other looks like. Hehehe! Some of my friends who have not met Justin are sometimes surprised he's not Asian. LOL!
@April I posted a little twitpic of my boyfriend, Adrian, a couple days ago while we were at a friend's holiday party if you're interested: http://www.twitpic.com/3gybwm
It's just a headshot, but he's not asian either. 🙂
Can't wait to see some pictures of Justin too!
kileen– what a cute jacket and i love the fur snood. you and your mom look so cute together.
Alterations Needed says
Your mom looks amazing in those jeans! Happy late birthday to her!
Both you and your mom look gorgeous in skinny jeans! Happy belated birthday to her 🙂 Your fur snood looks so comfy and warm.
Wow! That Tulle Coat looks great on you! I've tried them before and it was so big on me, but perhaps they've gotten smaller?
I really enjoy your outfit posts and seeing your fab shoe collection as well.
My mom just got a pair of skinny jeans too and she loves them! I think they're perfect for any woman as long as they find the right fit. It just gives them extra confidence! =)
@Stylepint This Tulle jacket was actually really big on me — the sleeves were at least 2" too long and the body had an extra 4" in width. I had my mom alter almost everything about this jacket since I really liked the style and bought it for $45 off Ideeli, which I thought was a pretty decent price.
This was the first time I had seen XS for a Tulle brand, so I went ahead and bought it, but I would not recommend this brand for petites at all. Too bad though cause they do have some cute stuff!
Hope this helps. 🙂
You and your mom are so cute together! And I love Chinese cake! Yummy! My favorites are the mocha and mango flavors (and believe it or not, they're actually good together too!)

Kileen, thank you so much for sharing these pictures. I just love seeing family pictures like these ones. Your mom looks fantastic in those skinny jeans. So do you. 🙂 The fur snood looks so chic on you. I especially love the snood with coat look.

I love everything about this blog! Your mom is too cute – I am definitely sending this post to MY mom so she can see how cute skinny jeans look on another mama 🙂
Such lovely pictures from your mom's birthday. You and your family look so happy and delightful. So so cute that you have matching skinny jeans and I can't believe how well she rocks them! Also, I love the coat you're wearing in this post. Deep purple and gold buttons? Doesn't get much better than that.
Hope you're having a great week Kileen!
Oh god! you need to send some of those cake to Kansas!! lol anyway!! I love your Jbrand skinny jeans, do you have to cut the bottom??? been dying to buy one of them but too scared its too long for me 🙁
you and your mom look so cute!!
been absent from blogging looking all your outfit pictures, they are soooo cute!!!
@Erin haha, awesome!! moms can definitely wear skinny jeans! 🙂
You and your mom are TOO cute matching!! I'm loving the fur snood. I can't believe it's been near 70 degrees recently… time for some Christmas weather!!! Happy holidays & happy belated birthday to your mom!
@Angga i was originally going to get these hemmed at the bottom, but then as i wore them more, they kinda ended up riding up a bit just from sitting down and standing up a lot. it eventually gets to the point where it's not really long anymore, so i decided not to have them altered. these jeans are as-is! 🙂
we love the fur ! it definately adds a statement to this outfit!
Cheers, B & Liv
