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 muchI 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.
