leathery bum



I'm going to have a BLT.  It's ten at night.  But I neglected to eat dinner.  I MEANT to eat dinner.  But we were at the mall Christmas shopping; and I got distracted by pretty baubles and such.  I'm very easily distracted at the mall.  In fact, I am unable to carry on much of a conversation while at the mall. Because I am constantly darting into stores to look at this and that and so forth and so on.  Ask my husband, he'll confirm it.

And hey, here I am in leather shorts.  I like my leather shorts.  They were originally leather pants I got from a thrift store.  But I already have leather leggings (I'll wear them one day; I swear!).  And well, leather shorts seem to me to be such a luxury item.  I mean, who really needs leather shorts?  No one. That's who.  Well, maybe Mad Max if he were going on a beach holiday.  But that's neither here nor there.

Now look here:  My son decided to pose with me (yes, he really does that now...oh dear what am I teaching the boy?).  Regardless I think we look pretty cool.



outfit total:  $26

leather shorts, danier, vintage, originally pants: $10
belt: gift from Lee
shirt, gap: present from husband
tights, warm: $4
booties, rieker, thrifted (but new, most of the shoes I thrift are unworn, and CHEAP, love it): $12
K necklace, people's

heart: Kimberellie

~the title is an observation my husband made.  Yes, technically whilst wearing these shorts my bottom is indeed leathery.

  5. Check our Junior's copycat pose! Love the leather shorts, I had a pair back in my single days, I called them my "pulling pants" as I never failed to get chatted up when I wore tham. Mind you I looked trashy and you look elegant and classy. xxx

With two children and a tendency to procrastinate, I don't often return comments. But I do appreciate them! So thank you!
