Okay, those of you who read my blog regularly know that I already have these shorts in a brown color too so don't kill me! I bought them in black because I loved them so much. I mean, they are quilted leather and I did find a discount code so I had to get them in another color, right? Sadly, I tried to trick the boyfriend into thinking these were the same brown ones I already owned. He didn't fall for it though. In all honesty, I have found that even though some of the things I buy have outrageous price tags I end up wearing those items I love and really wanted much more than things I thought were just too good of a deal to pass up. I hope you know what I mean by that. Buy only what drives you crazy and wild. You will love it and wear it that much more. It took me a long time to learn this lesson and I still struggle with resisting sales sometimes.
Anyway, leather shorts, camel cashmere sweater complete with a cutout back, what more could I ask for in an outfit? I felt really great in this one when I went out to sushi with the boyfriend. Don't worry, we hit up a different sushi joint this time. We are sushi junkies! Out of all my animal print shoes I find that these are the most true to life. My boyfriend got these for me last Christmas. I think the print is more ocelot, but the description says leopard. By the way, I title my posts after one thing I am wearing just to make it easier. That isn't always what the focus of my outfit is that day, just what I felt like putting as a title.
