AJ Wears :: A Leopard Skirt

Don't you love it when the 1st of the month lands on a Monday? Those of you stuck behind desks instead of working comfortably from your couch might be shaking your fists at me right now, but hear me out. Think of it as a fresh start. I think we can all agree that July was a bit of a hot mess, so I'm welcoming August with a bit of a new attitude. This is the month that I GET STUFF DONE.

At least, that's what I'm telling myself as I sit here and marathon Season 2 of The OC. Also, I ordered Harry Potter and the Cursed Child last night...so perhaps I should define what I'm actually planning on "getting done" in August.

Top, Forever 21 (similar from Forever 21).

AJ Wears :: Leather Shorts

You know what nobody probably needs? Leather track shorts. But you know what are totally awesome? LEATHER TRACK SHORTS. I wore these this weekend for beboppin' around town, i.e., going to a couple of open houses and having a local brew at my favorite pizza joint. 

How is this relevant to the story, you say? People, pizza and beer are always relevant. It's the law.

Top, Rebecca Taylor (exact from Yoox // similar-ish? This was a tough one!).

AJ Wears :: A floral print tee

Something happens when we hit spring weather - people start wanting to DO THINGS. Don't get me wrong, my favorite sport is anything that involves a patio and a glass of wine, but I have seriously enjoyed NOT doing things this weekend. I got it all out of the way on Friday, and then I had a full Saturday and Sunday to do nothing but catch up on my DVR (Scandal and Empire, le duh) and play video games (Pokemon X, because I'm 10 years old). I did manage to get out of the house a few times (because food) and I wore clothes when I did; Kids, THAT is how a style blog is made. This behind the scenes peek at the glamorous world of fashion blogging is brought to you by pizza quesadillas and too many episodes of The Simpsons this afternoon.

Jacket, Gap (similar from Kohl's).
