Cashmere, Leather and a Birthday Boy

Bucket may not be able to talk yet but he knows how to cause trouble.
He looooves to hide things.  He thinks it's funny.
Like when he goes to the YMCA, takes off his shoes and puts them with the toys.
Or when he gets a hold of the TV remote, and I'll find it in the girl's play kitchen.
I can't believe my little trouble maker turns 1 this week.
Happy Birthday, Baby Boy!

 For "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds, I decided to go with these faux leather skinnies.  I found them at F21 during the summer when it was 90 degrees outside.  I almost didn't buy them because 1) I was hot just thinking about it, and 2) the line was so long I actually had to ask my friend, Gingham, to sign Pigtails out of class.  But I'm so glad I did!

I really love pairing an edgy piece (faux leather) with a more conservative one (cashmere!).  It's such a fun juxtaposition.  And these leather skinnies match with so much.  I just have to make sure I wear them when it's cold.  Because if it gets warm all of a sudden, Bucket won't be the only one getting into trouble!

You look so chic friend! I love how you made this your own. I was all set to take and post a photo and well, all my photographers got caught in the Super Bowl drama! Sigh!
