I
am feeling quite sassy today in this outfit! However, before I left home I was
second guessing myself.  I haven’t seen any other woman wearing colored
denim on casual Fridays.  I always feel
like I stick out like a sore thumb when I do.  On the other hand maybe I
am just the office trend setter, yea…that’s it! Anyway, I am going to see Red Tails
after class tonight and I won’t have time to head home and change, so today’s
outfit is pulling double duty. 
I
am wearing a mix of old and new.  I found this faux leather jacket on
Ebay, you can’t tell from the pics but it is a really pretty eggplant
purple.  The collarless design, princess seamed shoulders and peplum
design is hot!  Faux leather has come a long way from when it was taboo to
wear anything pleather.  I currently own four faux leather jackets and I
will probably buy more.  I have been
successful finding great deals on Ebay; buying faux leather retail can be
expensive.  Of course you can always
check your local thrift store too which is bound to have great pricing on
leather jackets.   
I
am also wearing my new shooties (shoe booties) from Call It Spring, I was
looking for a cute wedge bootie and these are perfect.  I wish they were a little taller but they
will work when I don’t feel like wearing a high heel.  
Annnnnnd
guess what?! I found out on Tuesday I made the Dean’s List last semester!  I meant to mention it in my last post but
forgot.  You guys are
always cheering me on when I feel like pulling out my hair, which I really appreciate.  I am so proud of myself; I don’t usually have
the opportunity to take 12 credits at once so this was definitely a blessing.   
Also, if have a few minutes please take my blog survey here. Thanks!
