preppy in leather

Pin It Now! DSC_1267.jpg
I've loved leather shorts for several years now. And I usually pair it w/ a huge knit, but this time I thought I'd give it a preppy make over with a v neck sweater layered over a collared shirt.

friday flowers: vintage bottles

Pin It Now!
My mother in law collects all sorts of vintage nick knacks. I was completely thrilled when I found these vintage bottles stored away in a shelf in the dining room. Immediately I thought they would be the perfect vases for my coffee filter flowers. Don't they look adorable? coffee filter flowers coffee filter roses

just a cup of coffee

I'm not exactly addicted to caffeine but I love a good cup of coffee in the morning. And I don't mean the dribble you get from a Keurig. Yes I know, I sound like a coffee snob, this is due to the fact that I live with a coffee snob who basically hand grinds his beans and makes "coffee" aka espresso in one of those little pots over the stove, just like the Italians. The result, especially when using Dominican coffee, is a rich liquid that gives you a swift kick in the head. When all is said and done, it's the best way to wake up in the morning and even better when paired with biscotti.

Though this post was about coffee, I'm actually drinking Solomon's Seal tea here, more on that particular tea next time.

a little crochet

Pin It Now! DSC_2027.jpg DSC_2029.jpg Honestly I can't tell you if this is a shirt or a dress, I wear it as a dress, but that's just me. Sometimes I like to wear inappropriately short things...one of the only advantages of being short of stature.

even target!

Pin It Now!
Even target has made a version of the infamous Isabel marant dicker boots and I gotta say for $29.99 they're not bad. The toes are a bit more rounded and bulkier but the inside is nice and cushy. The overall design is not as streamlined as the original but for the price I can't really complain. They actually remind me more of the dolce vita Jamison boots than the dicker.

leather pants

Pin It Now!
I've always been a huge fan of the leather bottoms trend be it shorts, pants, or those leather like leggings everyone was wearing a few years ago. But real leather pants have always been a bit to pricey for me...I like to be cost effective.

So when Zara came out with coated trousers last year that appeared to be leather like I jumped at the buy! Glad to see they have stocked them again this year. And tons of different variations to choose from, here, here, and even the real deal here. I'm totally eyeing the these red moto inspired ones.
