Spring seems like it's here so I am debuting some of my Givenchy sandals for the first time on the blog.  I cannot wait to wear them with bare feet.  They are pretty comfortable due to the wedge heel and I love the elastic bondage straps holding my feet in and the extra ankle strap.  This is one of my absolute favorite button down shirts due to the pearl detailing and buttons.  I snagged it from Fashion Toast Rumi Neely's ebay store Treasure Chest Vintage.  It is an older shirt from Express when the label said Express Worldbrand and it still had the tags attached when I bought it.  This skirt is part of an Elizabeth and James suit.  The top part which I am not wearing is a sleeveless blazer.  I will have to wear that soon, maybe with the skirt as a set.  This faux fur vest is coming in handy around this time of year as a coat.  It is reversible and it has this beautiful silk lining with a pretty print.  Next time I will wear it with the print side showing.  The other detail I like about it is the cross back, which makes it stand out in a sea of faux fur vests.  This vest was a great snag because I got it in the 70% off section of Shopbop.  I liked layering this vest over a silk long sleeve shirt because of the contrasting fabrics and I also think you need something thin and lightweight under such a bulky material. 

These photos were taken around the Denver University (DU) campus on a deserted Sunday.  I was thinking about going to law school here at one time when I was getting fed up with studying for the MCAT and it is a beautiful place with gorgeous buildings.  We will have to take some more photos here soon.  The sunlight was so warm and I love feeling it on my face.  I cannot wait for summer!

Camilla Skovgaard Black Over The Knee Wedge Boots with Lug Sole - Snagged off Gilt.com

Any piece of clothing that has a cat on it usually catches my eye and I fall in love.  It's probably because my lovely boyfriend is allergic to cats and I grew up with lots of cats around and only one dog.  Now I am surrounded by three dogs and wishing I had a cat.  I used to collect all these glass knickknacks of cats when I was a kid and my room was full of them.  I especially love cats with long black fur because they remind me of my favorite cat Speedy.  He had beautiful green eyes and a tuft of white hair on his neck, but the rest of him was all long black hair.  It is funny I even named him Speedy because he really wasn't that fast, but as a kid that was the name I came up with for him. 

These boots are the most comfortable boots I own.  As with the other Camilla shoes I wore previously, these have a lug sole that makes even the longest commutes a breeze.  They look like a boot that means business and could potentially kick some butt if needed.  I am trying to wear all my boots before it gets too hot and this weather has been perfect for them, slightly cool, but a little warmer and most of the snow has melted. 

This American Apparel mesh dress has come in pretty handy and I love how it looks with this dress.  I just turned a summer dress into a winter/spring dress.  All you need to add is a leather jacket or faux fur coat.  This outfit seemed like the perfect attire for hanging out and shooting pool and since I am such a big pool shark it only seemed fitting that I show you our pool table.  Paul Newman would have been proud of the way I fleeced my boyfriend's wallet after the shoot when I beat him at eight-ball.

Blue Nile Diamond Stud Earrings - Gift from Boyfriend

This sequin dress is one of my favorites.  It is so easy to throw on and you feel like a Barbie in it because of the deep pink color.  I pulled out my Gucci thigh high boots again because now that it is March I might not get to wear them for much longer.  I think diamond studs are on every girl's must-have jewelry list as they go with absolutely any outfit.

It would be really hard to play the piano in these boots, but I do dabble in playing from time to time.  I played the clarinet for 6 years so reed instruments are more my specialty.  Lucky for me, this is a Disklavier piano so it plays on its own.
