It’s a veritable heat wave here!  With temperatures close to 70 degrees it is not feeling a lot like Christmas.  But it is feeling like a nice day to go to the playground so that’s what we did.  And I wore one of my favorite playground ensembles that takes me easily for a bite to eat on the way home.  I was happy to bring the boyfriend jeans out of the close and not have to bundle up in boots and socks.  But I’m ready for temps to go down and still holding out hope for a white Christmas!

Style Crush: Leather (and Faux Leather) Accents

I love the look of leather accents.  And for my vegan (or bargain hunter) friends, there are so many amazing faux leather options now.  They look and feel real and are animal friendly (not to mention wallet-friendly).  Leather accents can be added anywhere – a color, a hem, even a bracelet.  The possibilities are endless.  Here are few cute picks from around the web. (V = Vegan Leather)
