Kareem surprised me with a new Leader bike in a beautiful champagne gold with all black details for my birthday in San Diego. we’ve since added a basket for my purse (!!!) and i’ve already managed to wipe out.
will admit-i feel pretty stealth riding this bad boy!
have you ever had a pair of shoes that you loved SO MUCH that you actually didn’t want to wear them? if so, you can relate to my issue with these leopard booties. i have posted them before but not an up-close and personal pic of the lovelies. scored for a mere $19.99 via Urban Outfitters I have found my shoe soul mate. they have attracted strangers all over Atlanta with their shape, texture and print. seriously whenever i wear them i have many many randos that tell me how awesome they are, even guys! the only reason i worry about them not lasting for the long run is because the pony fur is already starting to rub where the laces cross across the top, sad times-i know. but even if they look haggard i’d still wear them out, especially to all my nightlife outtings.
shooting photos for Sorry,Darlin this particular evening my camera turned on me. i never mind, hehe
had to strike a pose with my fellow leopard wearing friend, Meg T
-her wedge booties are Jeffrey Campbell
outfit details: top: vintage, shorts: Silence + Noise, tights: Hue, purse: vintage, ring: Betsey Johnson, necklace: Rampage
ended up not going on the Nashville bachelorette trip due to money making opportunities at home. being a responsible adult isn’t always fun. but next week i will be in sunny San Diego and all my troubles will melt away. unfortunately the same can not be said for Japan, the photos are frightening and i can’t imagine what the people of that region are going through. let’s send all positive thoughts to Japan and hope for the very best.
here are some better shots of my new hair and the outfit i wore on New Years Eve. normally i don’t condone bare legs in the winter but since Atlanta wasn’t super freezing and i knew i’d be primarily indoors i opted out of wearing tights. thought it would have been too much with this ensemble anyways and wearing leather shorts just seemed to justify the exposed leg action.
just wondering-what do you think of bare legs in the winter??
many things about this outfit excite me-
#1. the vintage sequin cardigan, given to me from my Nana’s collection of clothes while visiting home- it’s super soft on the inside and breathable. i can already tell it’s a new favorite!
#2. the small button i am wearing reading “LF” that my boyfriend surprised me with for Christmas. knowing that he had a button maker i had talked about doing a project for the blog, but being that procrastination is in my genes-never got around to it. he listened and took action and it couldn’t have made me happier! i will be doing a reader giveaway soon that will include a few of them, more colors to come as well!
#3. my leopard boots that are made of real pony-?? hair. not sure of the exact animal the hair//fur has come from i just know they are fabulous! and i scored them for $19.99 at UrbanOutfitters.
#4. lastly, another UO item, my leather Silence & Noise shorts i got from Mom for Christmas. this was my first night taking them out on the town and hasn’t been the last. they are high-waisted and so comfy, plus made of beautiful black leather-im in LOVE!
yep, real excited on the new year and my outfit!
