Pink Leopard

I got the idea to pair bright pink with gray leopard from Aria on Pretty Little Liars of all people.  I don't remember exactly what her outfit was, but I remember thinking that I had the perfect sweater to wear with bright pink.  I want to try pairing the sweater with some bright pink cords that I have, but they're feeling a little snug right now, so I'd kind of like to lose a few pounds first ;).

Reagan Library Part II

In order to get to the Disney exhibit last week, we had to walk through the entire Reagan display, whether we liked it or not.  We had mixed reactions to that.  One thing I learned from this exhibit is that Reagan really liked jelly beans.  Like a lot.  They were all over the place--in the Oval Office, in Air Force One, in the gift shop for sale.  Also, it was pretty cool seeing Air Force One, even though we weren't allowed to take pictures inside of it.

Upon arriving, you are greeted by this statue.

Poor horse with no legs! 

And now for those who requested it (mostly my mom), what I was wearing!  We did not get a choice of how we posed in this one, but I snuck in a half Kevin.

D23 Presents Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives at the Reagan Library

Last weekend, a group of friends and I went to a Disney exhibit at the Ronald Reagan Library.  It was a pretty cool exhibit.  We also walked through the display of Reagan's life.  Not that we really had a choice--we had to go through it to get to the Disney stuff.  However, I think I will save those pictures for another post.

Purple People Eater

Okay, that blog title has nothing to do with this post, except that the dress is purple.  I guess I'm running out of ideas for titles, too.  A friend of mine had this dress and I liked it so much I went out and bought one for myself.  They were out of my size and it's a little too big, but at $14.99, you can't beat the price, so I got it anyway.  I just have to wear something underneath (here, a cami) if I don't want to show way to much cleavage.

In a Paper Bag

I'm really running out of things to write here.  This skirt has what I believe is called a paper bag waist.  Such the fashion expert am I.

I Heart Stripes

This is another hold-over from more summery weather.  It's finally cooled down here in L.A.  Of course, when we were taking these pictures it was pretty warm in the sun, so cooled down is a relative term.
