What is Black, White... and Leather...?

That would be me I guess!
Not too long ago my man and I celebrated 16 years of marriage.  I've yet to blog about it... mostly because like all things I get this great idea that takes 20 hours to put together instead of just writing about it!
Anyway... because he knows me well he got me a gift card to Marshalls... because I love that store!
I promptly went shopping!
At the end of my hunting I looked in my cart and everything was black and white... except my new workout wear, but that's to be expected.
This is crazy for me because I seldom wear black.  I love color!
Still, I went for it.
Here is what I added to my closet...

Oh no you didn't... oh yes I did!  Leather leggings... in the front, because my butt doesn't look good enough to don leather!  The back is regular spandex, hides more!
Leather is a must this fall.  So are classic prints.  I love this hounds tooth print top, can't wait to wear it!  I thought that little triangle guy was fabulous... I plan to wear it with the leather or some bold colored pants.

Do you love this jacket?  Oh my... love!  Leather AND black and white!

I have too many boots for one person, but I don't have a combat style boot.  Thank you Marshalls... these will do!

Keep watching to see how I wear these!
Do you buy things specifically to go with items already in your closet or do you just buy what you like and figure it out later?  I do a little bit of both.

Excuse Me... Is That a Countertop You're Wearing?

Is that what you would want to ask someone who walked past you wearing these pants?
Don't they totally remind you of those old Formica countertops? 
As they say, what's old is new again!  This time it's just in pant form!
I found these for a song at the Levi's outlet store.  I liked them!
I wasn't quite sure what to wear with them, but I liked them.
Thank heavens for a good chambray shirt that seems to go with everything!
And of course my little red shoes!  Love them!
What are you wearing that was once a household item?!!!
Have a great day!

Yikes, please forgive my hair!  I was going for 'messy'... achieved!

Black, White and Red

Did you all have a great weekend?
The sun has come out again, I'm so glad!
My man is in San Fran on a business trip... I'm a little blue.  Normally I feel I'm not really affected by his travels, this time I've gotta admit I miss him a bit more, plus I've got some photo shoots this week and I'll have to find sitters... I just like it when he's home much better!
Here is my outfit of the day...
I went with a classic color combo, but made it all casual with stripes.

I even wore striped shoes!  Do you love these?  How could you not?

everything came from Marshalls, the shoes are Roxy.
Have a fabulous day!

The Sunday Mullet

I do love Sunday's, for many reasons... one of them is that I love getting dressed up a bit.
I love polka dots and this dress features them in a mature way, don't you think?
It also reminds me of a mullet... business in the front, but a little party in the back!  I like that it drops a in the back.
Normally I'm not so into accessorizing with the obvious colors, but today it seemed like a good choice, so, yellow necklace and shoes.
I still feel a little weird having someone else take my picture.  I'm not as good at posing and feel awkward.  As a photographer I tell people how to pose for this very reason... who will tell me?  Matt is a good sport,  and won't tell me how to pose, but will take pictures of many options while I figure it out!  Someday I may be able to work it like a panther in front of the camera!!! :)

Little Red Shoes

Oh Steve Madden, you are so fabulous with shoe design!
And thank you for offering affordable shoes that are stinkin' adorable!
Do you love these little red guys?  My daughter has a matching pair!  Love!
How about some causal today?  It's Friday, I've got nowhere to be... except the grocery store, sighhhh.  Now if I only had nothing to do... I'd sit outside and craft or read, but alas I still have much to do!  Photos to edit, a scout hunt to plan, dust bunnies to be trapped in my vacuum, you know, the usual!

Rain Boots

Oh we've had some rain here!
That is just fine!  Bring it on, I'll just bust out my rain boots!
Kidding, really I go crazy not seeing the sun for so many days...
There are so many stylish galoshes out there right?  I bought these last year at a random store called The Christmas Tree Shoppe of all places.  I think I paid $10 for them!  Oh yea!
I was watching Project Runway the other night and one of the judges said 'clavicles are the new cleavage'.  What?  I don't have cleavage, but I have great clavicles!  This shirt shows them off nicely!  Sometimes no necklaces are good.  Take that world!

Going For It...

What the hey...
I'm going to separate these blogs out! 
 I'll still post my weekly favorite at Perspective, but I'm going to do my daily posts here!
What do you say, are you in?
Follow along, comment, let's be friends!
Here is my first look!  Yahoo!
This look from last week, date night, oh ya, gettin' perty!

You know, one of these days we are going to put up closet doors and you're not going to be able to see into my tiny closet anymore, does that make you sad? 

No really, last night Matt totally agreed to getting that done for me... we'll see if it takes him as long to get a project done as it takes me!!!

pants: old catalog maybe Chadwicks!
