Breaking All The Rules…

I’m baaaaaack, after taking a much needed blogging break.  I can’t technically call it a vacation because I’ve still been working insane hours at my full-time job, but just giving myself the freedom to sign off at the end of the night and just chill made all the difference in my stress level.  I feel refreshed!

Lol!! But, Fab loved it…in fact, Fab loves leggings, period.  The thing is he’s a leg man, so leggings and a great pair of heels are the next best thing to a dress.

It’s sooooo cute, right?  Can you believe it’s from JustFab?  Once again, they’ve knocked it out the park with a great apparel piece.  You all know how I feel about their jeans…and how much I loved last year’s mini collection of dresses and rompers.  So, I was super excited to see this jacket hit their website last month…

They’re my new favorites…I love the chunky heel, the crisscross straps, and the edgy ankle strap.  So cute! The style is called ‘Richelle’ and it also comes in cognac…I think I need both colors!  They’re also pretty darn comfortable.  I mean…they’re heels, so it’s not like walking around in sneakers, but they stood up the test of a 4 hour party at an arcade, so that’s saying something.  I think the chunky heel and 1/4 inch platform really help in the comfort department.

    Loving the shoes, I like a nice chunky heel. I'm thinking about getting these shoes myself ;) The jacket… JustFab really!?!? They are really stepping their game up I see. You look adorable, fashionable and comfortable. I wear leggings as "pants" but would wear them with a shirt that wouldn't cover my behind. ;)
