Tell Me About It...Stud

October 20, 2010 12:28 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

It is completely and officially cold outside where I live!  No more random days of 95 degree weather I hope.  In all actuality, we are never really happy with the weather.  We always want it to be what it is not.  I'm sure I will soon be ranting about how I am sick and tired of wearing tights and jackets everyday!  But as of this moment, I am reveling in it!  There is nothing like the fresh air after the rain.  I don't care for the rain, but the aftermath...YES!

Oh my, I could not WAIT to wear these boots.  They are one of my favorite purchases for fall.  Only $25 on Overstock.com and free shipping!  They may still have them if you want to snag a pair for yourself!  The camel color is DIVINE and kind of rare.  I haven't seen many boots in this color before.  And you know I love anything with studs!  I give these boots an A++!  They are great to just throw on with an oversized sweater and leggings or tights with a skirt!  Soooo versatile.  Ok, I have a question for you all...Does anyone else tuck their jeans into their socks when wearing boots?  I always feel like a giant dork if I am trying on shoes in a store and have to expose my "jeans tucked into socks" look.  I always kind of hide my feet so no one sees.  Haha.  I just hate when my jeans bunch up over my boots, and socks seem to hold them in place!  Just one of my weird thoughts...

Pleather Please!

October 9, 2010 3:43 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

Still with Nicole Ritchie's style in my mind, I find myself being drawn to flowing shirts and soft fabrics.  Then I had to add an opposite.   What is a complete 180 from a flowing top?  Duh, a leather vest!  I hesitated when pairing this vest with these kind of biker chick boots.  "Is it too much biker?", I asked myself.  I looove leather and studded details but can there really be too much of a good thing?  I threw my better judgement to the wind and went for it!

Although comfort is usually the furthest thing from my mind when getting dressed in the morning (oh the things we women do for beauty!), this morning was quite the contrary!  This ensemble is the epitome of comfortable, which fit my completely lazy mood!  The last thing you want to do when laziness overcomes you is strut around in 4 inch heels all day.  It can be exhausting!

Now let me tell you something about these boots...they are my adoration at the moment!  I know, I know, I obsess about one thing after the next.  If fashion A.D.D. existed, I would have it!  So...back to the boots.  A wonderful line called Dolce Vita has arrived at Target!  They make AMAZING shoes, especially boots.  These biker boots are not bulky AT ALL, which is the main thing I love about them.  The toe is very narrow and makes for a flattering fit!  I encourage you to take a peek at Dolce Vita or Dolce Vita for Target online.  I'm sure you will fall in love as I have!

I See London, I See France...

October 7, 2010 2:38 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

The season of tights and boots has begun!  I use to relate tights to little kids or old ladies, but it is a new generation!  Now can't get enough of them!  There are so many different patterns, textures and colors.  You can really have a lot of fun with them!

There is so much going on in this outfit.  It is kind of a hodge podge of random items, but I had so much fun wearing it.  I felt like I belonged in London or Paris...maybe it's the hat.

These boots were purchased from Bakers at the end of the winter season.  One of the best deals I have ever found on good quality boots...$30!  What a steal!  The end of season sales are where you can always find the best deals!  Granted, you may have to wait a little while until you use the item, but it is well worth it!  It's like getting a Christmas ornament from someone as a Christmas present.  You have to wait a WHOLE YEAR to use it!  I know, I know, it's the thought that counts. :)

Lumberjack Boots

October 4, 2010 1:04 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

The leaves are starting to change, the sky is looking gloomy...but why is it still warm outside?!!  This outfit is as close to fall as I can get without dying from heat exhaustion!  I am sooo in denial about the weather.  My body's telling me no...but my miiiiind's telling me yes!  (Haha R Kelly reference)

These boots are the most difficult ones in my closet to wear!  I love them, but had the worst time EVER finding something to wear with them!  They are kind of bulky, and I have scrawny little legs.  Also, they are kind of lumberjack-esque (Yes, sometimes I make up my own words), so I don't want to look too manly!  I TOTALLY based this outfit off of the boots.  Determination clouded my judgement as I opened my closet this morning!

I am pretty proud of these jeans.  Found them on sale at Target for $13 and I have to say that they are pretty awesome!  Great fitting pants are few and far between for me, as probably for most women.  But when I laid eyes on these studded, distressed skinnies, I knew immediately that they would fit!  Love those moments!  When I first started wearing jeans with holes in them (purposely distressed), I can't even tell you how many people would ask me "oh, what happened did you fall down?" as they laughed to themselves, thinking that they were hilarious!  I love it!  I too laugh at my own jokes more times than not...(as she gives a sheepish grin).

Boots and Ruffles

September 15, 2010 9:08 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Feeling so happy in boots and a dress...oh yes!  I love these colors together.  Kind of a taupe-brown and mustard yellow, which is really in for fall.  And now, let boot season begin!  You will being seeing my collection of knee-high boots quite frequently in the next couple of months.  YAY for knee-high boots!  And while we're at it, YIPPEE for ruffles!

Monterey Bay

September 7, 2010 9:43 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Here are more pictures from my vacation in Nor Cal.  We took the 17 mile drive at Pebble Beach, which is completely gorgeous!  There is so much wildlife there: sea otters, seals, sea lions...I am such an animal lover.  We explored the tide pools and walked the beaches.  It was perfect!

We came across these beautiful trees that made for a perfect photo-op!  I accidentally stepped in poison oak...from my past camping adventures I should have known better, I was just not paying attention!  Thankfully nothing happened to my feet!

Our last stop before heading home was Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey.  We enjoyed amazing seafood, saw tons of jellyfish swimming, and came across this sea lion basking in the sun!  My husband snapped a quick photo...I was scared it would jump up and come after me!  They are not friendly creatures if they are bothered.

We witnessed a beautiful sunset on the drive home.  Now back to reality and back to the warm weather...yearning and waiting to be able to wear my fall clothes again.  That was just a tease of jackets, scarves and boots.  I am still counting down the days and watching the temperature drop!

I Left My Heart In San Francisco

September 7, 2010 2:55 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

This past weekend, my husband and I drove to San Francisco for our yearly "Anniversary Trip".  We would much rather create memories in different parts of the country than buy each other gifts, so we always plan a getaway for our anniversary.  Here are some pics of my trip and my vacation ensembles!

San Francisco was cold, cold, cold!  Which made me happy, happy, happy!  I FINALLY got to wear my military jackets and boots!  I took full advantage of the situation by wearing my boots as much as possible.  When going on vacation, I always bring comfortable outfits and flat shoes that I can walk in for a long period of time.  I don't know why, but my husband and I seem to get more excercise when we go on vacation, than when we're at home!  It seems that it should be the other way around, but we always end up walking everywhere!  We literally walked 25 blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, to our hotel because we couldn't get a cab to stop for us!  It turned out to be a really fun experience even though we were exhausted.  Thank God I wore my walking shoes!  These boots are made for walkin, and that's just what they'll do....

How random...and odd!

The Golden Gate Bridge was something else!  What an amazing piece of architecture!  Walking through Golden Gate park was so beautiful and peaceful.  So many amazing trees and flowers!

At the bottom of the bridge, there is an old military building called Fort Point and it was one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen!  How perfect that I am wearing army green for this occasion!  Not planned...just coincidence.When I saw this belt, I thought that it was the one of the coolest accessories I had ever seen.  It was one of those "I must have that" moments.  Purchased at Forever 21 for $20, which is a little pricey for them.

These trees are so amazing, I could not resist taking a photo of them!

Since it was so freezing cold, and I was not prepared with a hat, I bought this head-band-hat-thing at a store along the Wharf.  I have seen Whitney, from "The City" wear one, and always thought it was ridiculously cute.  So, I am actually happy I forgot a hat, because it resulted in this!
