All Black… Holiday Party Outfit option #2

 I flew down to Austin yesterday to meet up with my husband, who works there for half the week.  His company holiday party is tonight, and this is one of the options I brought with me. The romper I thought about wearing ended up getting nixed because while it’s been warm here during the day, it’s been dipping down into the 30’s and 40’s at night-BRRRR!!!!

So….option 2.  You can never go wrong with all black!Blog Doma Leather MK2K DL1961 River Pedro Garcia Booties-1 Blog Doma Leather MK2K DL1961 River Pedro Garcia Booties-2Envision dozens of cars driving past me right now…AWKWARD 😉 Blog Doma Leather MK2K DL1961 River Pedro Garcia Booties-3 Blog Doma Leather MK2K DL1961 River Pedro Garcia Booties-4 Blog Doma Leather MK2K DL1961 River Pedro Garcia Booties-5 On me…

I took these on a pretty busy street a few blocks away from my house while Maya was in school.  I gave myself 10 minutes, because I had to get back to pick her up.  In those 10 minutes in addition to the dozens of cars driving by were people walking their dogs.  NO…I didn’t feel like a big nerd at ALL!!!! 😉
Oh, and truth be told.  I brought even ANOTHER option, because I’m wondering if this is going to be too dressy…sigh.Blog outtake

Leather Jacket + Silk Romper + Booties…Gearing up for the Holiday Parties!

 So, this is my first post without Maya in a loooooong time!  Feels a little weird…

I have a few parties coming up, and I’m determined not to save my outfit for the last minute (like I ALWAYS DO!!!)  I usually have an idea in my mind of what I want to wear, and then when I put it on the night of, I always change my mind!  Insert tornado of clothing in my bedroom, about 5 outfit changes and usually a LOT of cursing…all in the span of about 30 minutes.  The poor Huz…

And I swear when I blog something, I either think “Huh…yes, that’s good!”  or… “OMG, I WORE THAT??!!”  So, I’m using this blog as my test haha 🙂

One party I’m going to is next weekend in Austin.  My husband’s new company is based there, so I’m flying down there with him for a little weekend of fun!  Added bonus?  It’s been in the 70’s during the day!!!  I can’t wait!

Invitation said “Austin Chic/Dressy Casual”

Ugh…there is SO much leeway with that!!

Here’s my first option…Blog Doma Leather Jacket Joie Silk Amara Romper Lola Kiem Booties-1Yeah, right about now, one of my neighbors came home.  Don’t mind me in shorts…while it’s 50 degrees.  Oh and this tripod?  Yeah…don’t ask.  AWKWARD! ;} Blog Doma Leather Jacket Joie Silk Amara Romper Lola Kiem Booties-2I’m thinking if I DO go with this outfit, I need to adjust the drawstring, because from the back????  NOT GOOD!  Again…things I can’t really see when trying it on in my room.  YAY blog! Blog Doma Leather Jacket Joie Silk Amara Romper Lola Kiem Booties-3Add New The fact that this romper has pockets is a solid mark in it’s favor!!!  All the tiny buttons up the front when I’m sure there will be drinking and much needed trips to the bathroom…not so much.  Things you need to think about!! 😉Blog Doma Leather Jacket Joie Silk Amara Romper Lola Kiem Booties-4 Blog Doma Leather Jacket Joie Silk Amara Romper Lola Kiem Booties-5 Blog Doma Leather Jacket Joie Silk Amara Romper Lola Kiem Booties-6On me…
