Friday is finally here, and after a long week of being cooped up in an office with gorgeous weather taunting me from outside, the [predicted to be rainy] weekend has arrived.  I’m really not concerned about the rain considering I have a fabulous Miami weekend planned w/ friends, and so the main thought on my mind right now is: what to wear?  The weather is starting to get cooler in S Florida, and I did happen to pick up a pair of sweet leather (ok fine, pleather) hot shorts while outlet scavenging in Orlando last weekend, so I need to find a way to work these into my weekend uniform.  After some serious blog-stalking I have come up with a few great ways to wear leather shorts in early fall.  See my faves below, and some cheap and chic copycats in the collage above.

weekend inspiration: old + new

The weekend is finally upon us after a (very) long week.  My plans include some vintage and thrift store shopping/antique hunting, and creating a new piece of art for my walls.

As far as “old” goes, here is a picture of a few of my favorite vintage jewelry items, nestled on an antique silver tray:

And for “new” I plan to re-create my own version of this adorable Jack Russell made by artist Denise Fiedler.
