Gold Dust In Our Hand

Nathan hates these shorts. They are:



1.Leather
2.Gold
3.Metallic

He thinks it's too much. I don't even know if I would know "too much" anymore if it slapped me right in the face. I love them.

I wore them today with a plain black silk tee, but I think they pair well with any number of tee shirts and tanks. And I think they will be great in the fall with tights. I mean...LEATHER GOLD METALLIC. The only thing that could be better is...I don't even know.







I am also wearing my new favorite piece of jewelry. It is by a fellow blogger and one of my top 10 jewelry artists of all time, My Own Little Universe. And she is super affordable for the quality of work she produces. Each piece is one of a kind. This is sterling double finger pyrite matrix ring.



Here is a pic I stole from the listing as well, just to impress you even more...


Just LOOK at all the colors. I love it. It reminds me of looking at deep space. And for a two finger ring it's very comfortable. The smaller sized ring fits my pointer finger like a normal ring and the middle finger ring fits about a size too big. What that means is that the ring fits really well, and is in no danger of falling off, since that first finger is thr right size, BUT I also have range of motion to type, count change and work with clothes at work. It's absolutely perfect. Please shop her store if you can! She is amazing.

I don't know if I'd wear those shorts, but they sure are shiny, and I love a good shiny object!

Honestly, if you didn't own those shorts and love them, there might be something wrong with the universe. <3

That ring is amazing. I'm checking out that store as soon as I click "post" on this comment!

XOXOXO

Those shorts are just amazing. I love that you paired them with something simple, because they just own that show.

I personally really like them and I've learned that husbands have no say when it comes to fashion.

I love the way they fit in addition to the way they shine! Sometimes people just don't see the glory of metallics, and that's okay. More shorts for us!

Well, even if Nathan doesn't love them, they are really cool and look great on you! You are only young once, so enjoy it while you can. I can see these shorts with a bulky knit sweater and tights.
You do find great things at BE!

Your husband is high, because those shorts are none other. In fact, I just checked my dictionary and there was a picture of them next to awesomesauce. Because they are. Awesomesauce.

Vanessa said...

As soon as I saw the shorts I thought, "Oh, my word, are those metallic gold?" And then I read the list of things that Nathan wasn't so sure about and realized they're also leather! The trifecta of awesomeness!

Umm, your shorts rock the lame ass of the universe. All who think differently should prepare to be smote by the gods of fashion. And I have those same Target heels. I LOVE them. They are comfy and go with so much.

My fiance is forever giving me the weird eye at some of the stuff I wear. If it's really really bad, he will beg me not to wear it. But - that was some serious harem pants. Man repeller! But I LOVE these shorts. Awesomeness!

Aww thank you for the nice shout-out Erin! I'm happy you love the ring! <3

Jodie said...

I think if you're going to go leather shorts why not take them as far as possible? I'd kind of like to see a silver version with some kind of rainbow bedazzle trim on the pockets...

LOVE those gold shorts! Especially with a simple black tee! It's the perfect balance.
