I hope everyone is having a great week!

** By now everyone has weighed in on the VMA's from Sunday.  Of course, N'Sync reuniting was a highlight for me.  They may need some additional rehearsing though; not as in sync (pun intended) as they used to be.

** This plane looks really cool, but terrifying!  Look closely, it has a GLASS BOTTOM!

** These are gorgeous photos

 ** This is hysterical and so true!  So many people use the magical Instagram filters to alter their photos.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Who wears short leather shorts?

Leather, leather, leather and more leather.  Your entire wardrobe for the coming season should pretty much consist of all leather.

I was baffled by the rise of leather shorts.  So odd.  Leather pants? Maybe.  Leather skirts?  Sure.  But leather shorts?!  All I can think about when it comes to leather pants is Ross Geller on Friends.

I gave into the trend this weekend when Jaime and I wandered up to Club Monaco to glance at the fall collections.

I must say, I'm pretty excited about this pair I picked up.  
*Sidenote: Club Monaco's fall line is pretty adorable!

Now, what the heck do you wear with leather shorts now and in the fall?  Here are some great photos for inspiration:

Love this super casual look for the day.  Who would have thought you could pair flannel with leather shorts?

Nothing better than a classic white t-shirt with pretty much anything.

You can never go wrong with black on black.  I also love her shoes.  I purchased some similar to (hopefully) wear this weekend.

I adore her bag and jewelry.  I'm officially on the hunt for her blouse as well. 

Now for some fall looks:

There is going to be a lot of leather on leather this season.  As you may recall, a new black leather jacket is one of the many items on my fall wish list. 

My husband, and I think most men, hate the shorts and tights look.  He's going to have to get over it because with leather shorts, it's bound to happen in the colder months.  Complete the look with a great pair of stilettos and you're set!

Have I persuaded you to purchase leather shorts yet?

Weekend Recap!

Summer is almost over, it was made very apparent this weekend.  We headed out to Coney Island.  Honestly, I was dreading it.  It sounded exhausting to me.  In the end, I can honestly say I really enjoyed it and had a lot of fun!

It would not have been as fun though if it was too hot.  Luckily, it was probably the most perfect weather we’ve had to date this summer.  It was of course a little bit cooler out by the water, which was very nice.

 We didn’t ride the Wonder Wheel this time around, but it still looked really pretty.  The key to any good amusement park is a great ferris wheel.

Here’s a shot of Jaime and I before riding the swing ride.  Who would have thought that a ride where you sit in a swing and spin around high above the ground would be so terrifying?!  It just feels very unstable.

 We were not leaving until Jaime won me a prize.  Luckily he did.  However, I ended up giving both prizes he won for me to two little kids.  What am I going to do with two stuffed animals?


 After several hours at the park, we headed out to the Playland Motel in the Rockaways.  It was WAY far out there, but a lot of fun.
 (Here's an article about the space from PureWow.)

Even though he hates it, I do love taking candid shots of my husband.  ;)  He’ll get over it.

 All inall, a great weekend!   

Even better that today is the start of a four day week.  My parents are shipping the top of our cake to us this week.  I’m pretty sure they did a dress rehearsal this weekend to ensure it was all packaged and timed appropriately.   

It’s probably going to cost as much as our whole cake to ship it out to us on dry ice.  Totally worth it.  #bestparentsever

Happy Friday!

I guess blogging has become a three, maybe, four day thing!

This week has been super busy and Friday couldn't have come soon enough.

Lots of fun plans this weekend.  We are in store for yet another adventure.  We are heading out to Coney Island (don't as me why) and then The Rockaways tomorrow afternoon. 

I'll be back next week with a normal health and fitness Friday update.  

For now, my only health advice this week is to enjoy some much needed relaxation.  Oh, and don't forget to fit in a workout or two over the weekend as well!  I used to not workout at all on the weekend, but it happens to be the best time.

Looking forward to next weeks since it's only four days, followed by a four day weekend and our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!  I'm beyond excited.  My mom is actually shipping us he top of our wedding cake.  Should be interesting.
