I am seriously living in mine right now. But let's keep it real. There's definitely a way to wear them on a night out - arguably my favorite way, but with the cold weather biting at your legs these babies will keep you warm and stylish. Here's a little inspiration to give you a kick in pants to brings these only at night pants into the light of day.
Do you wear your leather pants to work?

What's my favorite thing to do on a Monday night? Easy. I throw my backpack down and after dinner is made I sit down to watch The Good Wife. It's on it's 5th season, but I just started watching it a few months ago. I was sick and the only thing I could do was lift my roku remote. After catching up on all of my shows, I didn't know what to watch. This is the only time I've ever thanked a cold for anything.
I watched this show in record time and now I have to wait every week for it to come on. Torture.
1. Love Drama: Yes, it's there, but this isn't the CW.
2. Court Room Drama: Unlike L&O (Which I'm a huge fan of) I can't predict what's going to happen. It's more than just rapes and murders.
3. Inside the law firm drama: Not everything happens in the court room.
4. The characters are characters:. Even their guest stars are amazing. One of my fave characters ever is on this show - Elsbeth Tascioni. She's quirky, but killer sharp. Martha Plimpton's character is also one to watch.
5. Two Sides to the Coin: Alicia is not always the strong independent role model. They've written her to be both vulnerable and strong. Yes, high power attorneys don't always have everything together. I don't always agree with what she does, but this show always has me pulling for her.
"I hope Emmy voters are taking note, too, and the series will be back in the running for best drama next year." - Lori Rackl, The Chicago Sun Times
It's officially on midseason hiatus - this is one show I am going to be counting down till its return.
On the bright side, if you haven't been watching this is your time to catch up.
Find season 1-4 on Hulu and Season 5 on Amazon.
I am professed red lipstick obsessor. But, I haven't tried every single red lipstick made. Sad, but true.
Right now I am setting my sights on cherry and plum shades. The best thing about these - they don't have to be categorized for day or night. Both of the would rock dressed up or down.
Here are the shades that I am crushing on and will be trying out.
Illimasqua Growl Matte
Black Cherry Revlon
Mac Divine Night
Sephora Collection Crush 23
If you have one that you love. Please let me know.

I know that tartan is often featured as a grunge/ alternative style, but because it is so often red I often associate it with the Holidays. It's a twist on the glitter and glamour of Holiday season.
The fact that you can dress it up by wearing the print in skirt form and still have fun by mixing it with the unexpected - leopard print, keeps this interesting. How I crave the interesting. The days are just getting colder, so instead of dressing it up in black - do this.

I've been sleeping in on Saturdays and its nice, like really nice.. but there's just one problem. The more I sleep in the harder it is to get up and get out of that cozy stupor. As a girl who has a full time job, who tries to have time for friends, a clean apartment and run a blog - Saturdays are not for sleeping in. They are for getting breakfast ready, working out, cleaning up a little bit before I pack up my backpack and head to my local coffee shop for work and blogging.
So, how do I get myself out this - how do I make myself climb out of my bed to tackle and win Saturday - its all about music. I can't resist dancing to a great song.
Do you have one song that makes you just want to dance?

It's always exciting to see cool and different ways to wear jewelry. That's why I fell a little bit in love with the funky shoulder jewelry from Free People.

Would you wear shoulder jewelry?

Last week, I was invited to check out the new Nike Running store in University Village. It's pretty inside and out, but the coolest thing about it is how community driven it is. Have you ever seen a retail space have lockers?
The running store is completely dedicated to runners. The lockers provide the running club that meets every Wednesday at 6:30pm a place to put their stuff. No excuses. They will also be offering unique services such as digital gait analysis, footwear trials and more.
Ladies, they will be offering hemming, custom bra fitting and styling.
Are you thinking it's too dark to run? Well, then you'll have to check out the new Shield Flash line. You pretty much glow in the dark. I really didn't mean for the photo below to happen, but the glass beaded exterior produces 360 degrees of 400-candlepower was just too strong for the camera.
This jacket is currently my favorite thing, but I fell in love a few times over with all of the goodness they have in the store.
Only the 15th store of its kind in the US, Nike out does itself. It's made up of recycled/reclaimed materials and has been designed to optimize energy efficiency. It's registered with the U.S. Green Building Council and is anticipating LEED® Gold Certification.
Every corner of the store has been well thought out. It pays tribute to the local community with photography from running hot spots around the area, and celebrates the inspiration of local runners by posting their bibs along the community wall. It's a mix of technology, run gear and green - perfect for Seattle.
I will be definitely visiting the running store again.. for Christmas gifts for my runner loved ones and maybe a few little things for me.
9:30 am to 9 pm, Monday to Saturday
11 am to 6 pm, Sunday
