If you couldn't tell already, I am in a flare craze.  These suede skinny flares by Phillip Lim are gorgeously constructed and oh so warm.  It really doesn't matter what I am wearing on top.  I bought this green Alice + Olivia top in Aspen at Pitkin County Dry Goods with my friend Christina.  If you ever come to Aspen you should stop by there because they have so many awesome brands and some great leather items.  This American Retro cardigan I bought off Gilt seems like it was made to go with the suede pants.  I admit that I was a huge Gilt addict last year and a little bit this year so I have loads of items I snagged off the website.  Miu Miu designer shoes are among the most comfortable shoes with heels that you can get out there.  That is why I am constantly wearing Miu Miu shoes.

If you watch the video there is a photo we took of a hawk that was flying above me during this photo shoot.  Hawks have been invading our neighborhoods here in Denver and it is really cool to watch them.  We see them now more than ever and they are desperate for my toy poodles.  I think the reason there are so many is because they killed off a lot of coyotes in Greenwood Village.  People were complaining about them coming into their yards.  Now we have an overabundance of rabbits because there are less coyotes, and therefore a lot of hawks are flying around.

Assael Pearl and Diamond Lariat Necklace - Gift from Boyfriend

My love affair with lace continues in this post!  My boyfriend and I decided to snap some photos in Cherry Creek before we went out for a sushi dinner.  I wore a comfortable stretchy pencil skirt that has really cool chiffon lace up detailing in the back.  I tucked in a lace top, making the outfit look like it was one piece or a dress.  It was pretty warm in the sun, but I took this angora sweater because when the sun goes down in Denver it really cools off.  I guess I forgot how much an angora sweater can shed because I had to bring along my trusty lint roller.  This sweater jacket can be tied up in the front with the silk ribbon making it a wrap, otherwise you can tie a bow in the back for a cute look which is what I ended up doing.  I decided to break out some sandals against my bare legs and I continued my lace up theme.  This necklace I am wearing is adjustable so you can essentially close the diamond circle portion over whichever pearl you want to, changing the length.  

A really fun toy store in Cherry Creek is The Wizard's Chest and we thought the metal wizard was the perfect backdrop.  Down the street in a mall area we found this awesome artistic pole with faces on it.  Later, we came upon a private residence with a beautiful sculpture and quaint benches.  It is amazing how nice it was just yesterday evening when we took these pictures since there is a full scale blizzard going on today.

I looked up what you can do to stop an angora sweater from shedding and there isn't much you can do except put it in a Ziploc bag in the freezer for a few hours.  That is supposed to decrease the amount it sheds.  I still love this sweater.  I just have to be careful to wear it with a white outfit next time.
