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. 
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.   
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.  
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!

  16. I missed out on the Target jackets being cheap and waiting for them to go on sale. #Fail, these Floridians snatched those suckers up the first cool day we had, lol.  What workout, I have been a slacker lately, mostly sticking to my vegetarian diet.
