Chunky Hand Knits + Leather Pants


 I went over to my parents house a while ago and saw this sweater in a bag that was supposed to be “donated”.  Except…I recognized it as a sweater that my dad had knitted himself, so I grabbed it!  I mean, I couldn’t let a gorgeous hand knitted by my father sweater go!!  It was a little big for the Huz, but oversized comfy knits are the best, so I stole it for my own! 🙂  And honestly, I’ve been wearing it almost every night around the house ever since…Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-1And…I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect leather pants for over a year now.  I’ve bought a bunch and then either returned or sold them, but this holiday season…I SCORED!  It pays to shop on eBay when everyone else is rightly so focused on shopping for others (whoops!!) ;}  This particular pair, I snagged for $50!!!  Yes, leather pants…$50!!!  The bonus of it all?  I had just sold a bunch of stuff, so they were free with my Paypal credit-woo hoo!

The next two pairs I bought…not so much, but, whatever 😉  I have a stack of things I’m going to sell, so it will all even out.

These were even better in person.  The marbled copper and black?  They will go with everything!  Be prepared to see these a lot in the future (apologies in advance :))Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-2Yes, I’m a little embarrassed about my frizzy non showered hair.  I mean, the messy no shower top not is not a rarity on this blog, but it was especially out of control on this day.  I didn’t really realize it until I was going through the pics.  Oh well-sorry! :{ Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-3 Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-4 Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-5Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-1This totally reminds me of the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz for some reason, except obviously she’s not crossing her arms.  Her sweater is a little too big, so her left hand is lost… 😉Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-2Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-26Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-27Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-28“Mommy, kiss my nose!”  She’s been obsessed with me kissing her nose at nap time and at bed time lately…Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-29Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-30Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-31Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-32Blog Chunky Hand Knit Cardigan StyleMint North Beach Leather Pants Target Leopard Flats-33Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-23 Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-24 Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-25And then she was like “Mommy, I want to stand on that rock!”  Um… Yeah, I tried to dissuade her, but no go.  And really, what’s the worst that could have happened?  She fell in 6 inches deep of water?  Not worth the fight… And the joy???  SO WORTH IT!! 🙂Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-26 Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-27 Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-28 Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-29 Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-30 Blog Earth Ragz Bunny Cardigan DL1961 Chloe Rafaeli Purple Converse-31On me…

 Words cannot describe how nice it’s been to have TWO consecutive weekends off!!  I have a couple of shoots in January, but I’m soooo glad to be out of the 3-4 shoots a week holiday season.  Not that I don’t love my clients and feel incredibly thankful to be able to do what I do!!.  I’m incredibly lucky!!  But…truth be told, I just want to enjoy this little nugget and not be so stressed out 😉  That sure is nice…
Oh, and I almost had a runner!!  Scared the crap out of me!Blog Outtake
