Badass Birthday B....

My birthday is still a few weeks away, but I'm nothing if not an outfit planner. I seriously dream of outfits the way I dream of polish colors. When planning my outfit I wanted to think of pieces I already had or pieces that I would get a lot of wear out of well into Fall. (FL Fall is like everyone else's summer, it doesn't typically get cold until November.) So having awesome transitional pieces that read Fall but feel Summer are crucial. But I share this outfit with you now because it is such a cool outfit, perfect for a night out on the town. Perhaps you can add your own twist and share how you would wear it!

The star piece of this outfit is the faux leather shorts. I have been lusting after faux leather shorts for a few months now. I'm about to turn 39 and figure there is no way a woman my age should be wearing leather shorts real or faux. But you know what? I'm going to go for it. I'm going to be a Badass Birthday B..... Well if I can find a cute and affordable pair that is. When contemplating this outfit I thought a graphic tee would be perfect. But then decided I would do a white tee with some bright heels. And before you think leather shorts are not versatile. I think these would look great with a button down shirt, a sweater, tanks, tees. You name it. Of course all for nights out and most likely I will wear these about 3-4 times between my Birthday and Fall, so finding an affordable pair in a "classic" look is imperative! Wish me luck! 

As I mentioned I am thinking I am going to wear them (If I find them) with a white tee or tank. Originally I was thinking with my blue or green Zara heels, or maybe my new patent orangish Calvin Kleins I recently scored at Ross. But I recently found my Michael Kors white pumps on clearance. This is the day to bust them out!! I have been looking for white pumps since last Fall. OBSESSIVELY! None were right. Too pointy, too round, too tight, to high, to low. You name it, none worked! I lusted after these from Michael Kors. LUSTED! They were perfect. I just wasn't going to pay that kind of money for them. But when we took Coco out for her Birthday, my resolve was weakening. I decided to go see the shoes again, if by chance they still had them all these months later. Not only did they have them, they were on clearance! SCORE! So they will make their debut on my Birthday outing. 

I want to wear Riot on my nails and so I am thinking earrings that will compliment that will be perfect and a clutch in a bright opposing color to finish the look off. What do you think? Badass Birthday B....? Now to find these shorts and wait a few more weeks before I can wear this outfit.
