we were made for each other, but grew up differently

we were made for each other, but grew up differently

I've been searching far and wide for an adorable, yet affordable pair of leather shorts and I finally found the most perfect pair! These babies meet all my requirements: cuffed, high-waisted, flattering and buttery soft. Ohhhh, I love 'em! Now, of course, the challenge is how to wear them without venturing into Miley Cyrus territory...

Going to Annapolis tomorrow and hoping to do a bit of shopping and sightseeing while I'm there. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

  1. Mission accomplished. Miley is, uh, not nearly as, uh...well, I believe the British call it "upstairs." You know, high class. You wear those like a high fashion model, E!

  2. These are amaaaaaazing! I can't bring myself to purchase from Top Shop due to their extravagant shipping costs(being overseas and all) and since I live nowhere near NYC I'm outta luck. But these paired with the floral top = GENIUS. Bravo, girl!

  5. Upstairs! I love it! You are upstairs...and you rock those shorts. I love the tough girl gone soft vibe with the dark floral long sleeve with the short dark leather shorts. And that sweet face making leather shorts in the summer time the most natural thing in the world. lol.

    Have fun shopping!

  6. Yes I suppose with leather shorts it could be easy to get into crazy Miley territory, but I think you wear them beautifully. :) That blouse is gorgeous. Overall I just love love.

  19. You definitely don't look like miley. Classy as usual. I was just there last weekend. Go to Ree-Sails for cute bags! And see the tomb of John Paul Jones at the Naval academy. It's below the gorgeous chapel.

  20. I love Annapolis! The only shopping I've done there is the Mall (which is great but probably not what you're looking for). OK, on to those shorts. I need them. They are amazing. I love them paired with that blouse too.

  23. oo what beauties! it's so hard to find a perfect pair of leather shorts, though i've found about 100 hideous pairs made from PVC and decorated with oversized zippers...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Super cool. I made my own by hacking a pair of thrifted leather pants, but am yet to wear 'em!

  27. Love the leather shorts. And I wouldn't worry too much about venturing into Miley territory - I've been reading your blog a while now and I've never seen you pull out a mesh cut-out bathing suit (did you see that outfit...oversexed teens much?). You have way better style than miley!
