It’s safe to say I’m officially ready for Spring. With the warmer temps here in the Bay Area, I’m ready to transition my wardrobe and put away all my winter coats (even though they were hardly used with our ‘California winter’). The only thing I’m missing is a much needed tan. And a tropical vacation wouldn’t hurt either. Who’s with me?

Happy Wednesday/Hump Day! I can’t believe we’re already half way through the week. President’s Day is completely throwing me off, but hey I’m not complaining about a 3 day weekend. I’ll take it any day. Here is a black and blue look from this past weekend. I’ve heard some people say that you can’t wear black and blue together, but I would disagree. There are no rules in fashion. Wear what feels good and makes you feel confident. It’s all about confidence and owning it!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I love celebrating this holiday. I know some people may disagree and think otherwise, but I’ve always celebrated it with my friends and family-whether I was single or not. I think it’s the perfect reminder to stop and tell someone how much they mean to you. We all get caught up in our busy day to day lives that sometime’s we take things and people for granted. So regardless if your in a relationship or not, enjoy the day and remind someone the importance of them in your life.
And because it’s Valentine’s Day and I can be extra mushyyyy, I wanted to share these photos with you of my Valentine and I. A few weeks ago my fiance and I helped out our new friend Kirsten from KNW photo. She was in need of some models for her new website. She is based in the Bay Area for anyone who is local and looking for a photographer. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Kirsten for capturing these pictures flawlessly and Happy Valentine’s day to my sweetie.

I tend to be very
picky selective when I purchase things. I try to save my money for higher quality, investment pieces that I know I will wear years from now and spend less on trendy pieces that are in style now. I’ve been trying to keep this approach when shopping lately, yet I still have those moments of “what was I thinking when I bought this”. Like a nice handbag or pair of heels, leather pants would most likely be one of those items you would have to save your money for. While I can (kind of) see why some would invest in them, it’s still one of those pieces that I can’t justify spending several hundreds if not a thousand dollars on. Let’s be honest, leather pants would probably not be worn as much as my favorite jeans. Thus, after searching high and low and reading lots of reviews I think I’ve found some faux leather pants that look as equally nice and are at a decent price point. I wore them for an early casual Valentine dinner and got quite the compliments from my fiance! I’m just hoping they don’t turn into one of those “what was I thinking” moments.
What do you guys think? Do you own any faux leather pants or leggings?
