Seems as though we were just here, Monday morning. I know, maybe an extra cup of coffee will help you.  As you start a new week, I wanted to share this look with my favorite faux leather pants and olive military vest.  Both of these pieces have had a spot in my closet for sometime now and they tend to be easy go to pieces.  I had never thought of pairing the two together, until today I chose to go a little out of the box to create this look.  I never want to create a ‘too leathery’ look with my faux leather pants so I always pair opposite pieces with these pants.  What better way than with my military vest and a pair of heels!  And this long button down has been in my closet for years but a perfect piece to tie it all together. Let me tell you, this shoot was a fun adventure.  By the end, we had one muddy pup on our hands.  Is it Spring yet?  With this colder weather I keep wearing my darker colors.  I am ready for some bright and fun colors how about you? Which reminds me, tomorrow on the blog I will be posting some of my shopping ‘must haves’ right now. What are you currently wanting in your closet?

Bonjour! No, I do not speak French, but keep reading to see why I just wrote bonjour. Black and white stripes are one of my favorite patterns to date. Not only do I love black and white stripes on clothing pieces, but I also love stripes in home decor as well. Looking around my home office right now, I see three pieces off hand that are all black and white stripes. Over board? Nope. I think not! Just wait until our guest bathroom gets a make over. I am seeing black and white stripes in its future? Lets move on before I start another home project. 🙂

This specific black and white striped shirt is currently on sale at Old Navy. I picked it up last weekend for less than $10. Score! As for these faux leather pants, where to start….. I. Love. Them. It took me a very long time to decide on the best pair of faux leather pants to add to my wardrobe. I had these specific H&M pair on my radar for a few months before I picked them up. Lets face it, these days I will take any pair of pants that makes my rear end look good!

Sorry for the extra touch of blur to the photos. This might be one of three things. 1. My photographer was slacking on this photo shoot and this is what I have to work with from that slacker. 2. The stupid sun going down at 5PM is not working with my schedule. ughhhhh 3. The photographer, my husband, and I were too busy imitating what ‘things’ this outfit resembled. My husband said I just need a berea and Paris streets. Okay, I am ready! We are going to Paris? Okay, maybe NOT, but one day I will make it to Paris. I thought mime or gondolier?

How many of you have a black and white obsession too? Anyone?

Bon Voyage!
