Feeling Fall

I was cold while I was getting ready for work other day. So I did what any normal person would do…I put a pair of leather pants on. That would be the obvious solution, right? What? You don’t do that?

I paired them with my leopard pumps, it’s like they were made for each other. Then, to top it all off, I wore what my sister calls my “old man” cardigan (according to her, only old men wear sweaters with reinforcement in the elbows). Old man cardigan goes really well with leather pants, in case you were wondering. It’s a nice balance and keeps my outfit from getting too crazy.

Wait, it gets better. My pants have zippers! Whoa! It’s very handy for when I’m trying to pull my pants off my body and they just want to stay there forever.

Here’s the whole look. I bet you’re wondering where I took those last two photos. In my bathroom? Don’t be ridiculous. Ok, fine. Yes, I did. I like to keep it classy for all of you.

The leather pants are from Zara, the pumps are from Target and the old man is from Gap (but they don’t seem to have it anymore).

The Newest Addition to the Family

Look at this little bundle of joy that I brought home over the weekend. Yes, I am referring to a chair. And I suppose it isn’t that little.

I found this Eames era recliner at an antiques/flea market store thing (I’m not really sure what you would call it), and it followed me home. It’s a little squeaky, but quiet is boring, right? It’s in my bedroom for now, but someday it will be in the living room for all to enjoy.

Beach Bum

You can thank my mom for this post. She yelled at my yesterday for not posting anything recently. So this is to keep her happy and to ensure that she continues to feed me when I come home (actually, that’s the main reason).

I had the chance to visit southern California a few weeks ago. It was my first time there and the beaches were beautiful!

What’s that white stuff on the rocks, you ask? Poop. Lots of poop. So, of course I took a picture to share with all of you. If only I could capture the smell. Breathtaking.

I must admit that I can’t take credit for the last two photos. My fella took those. Not too shabby, eh?
