Red, Leather, and Twitter









Red blouse: Rue 21 (similar here)  |  Faux leather leggings: Forever 21 (similar here and here)  |  T bar flats: Halogen via Nordstrom  |  Gold chain necklace: Forever 21 (similar here)  |  Gold watch: Kate Spade  |  Black rhinestone bracelet: Target (similar here)  |  Aviator sunglasses: borrowed from hubby (similar here)


Earlier in the day, I wore this top and shoes with a skirt instead of leggings as we were guests at a wedding. I figured faux leather leggings wouldn't really fit the dress code. While we were there, Lily kept staring and smiling at one of John's friends. As we were getting in the car to leave, I joked that it was like she had been flirting with him. Eve had done the same thing with a different one of John's friends at her first birthday party. That friend is getting married next week. I told Eve that her crush was getting married and she exclaimed, "Not again!" It was absolutely hilarious. Only two years old and she's already dealing with love and loss.

I used to think that I would never use twitter. I have a twitter account but I only used it to enter giveaways. I thought it was just filled with unnecessary updates about peoples lives. I assumed everyone just wrote, "Had orange juice for breakfast. It was delicious." Or even worse, vague statuses that offer little information but beg for attention, "Some people can be so mean" or "How am I supposed to deal with this?" Or worst of all, endless selfies of Kim Kardashian. However, I'm putting my cynicism aside and giving it another chance. I'm pretty sure some people are capable of writing more interesting things. Entertaining things even.

Anyway, my point is that I've given in and am going to use twitter. But I have absolutely no clue what I'm doing. Do you have any tips? I feel like a 900-year-old grandma learning to text. My first tweet very well may be "ajfeijffkn."

Let's follow each other! My handle is @sierraoblad. Feel free to leave your handle in the comments if you'd like me to follow you! Don't worry, I'm not really as critical as I sound in the paragraph above. You can write about orange juice all you like :)

  1. Kids seriously say the funniest things! haha. Oh goodness wait til it's real crushes. I'm obsessed with rockstud shoes lately and since I'm 99.9% sure I'll never own a pair of Valentinos, I think I should check these out. (;

    Twitter isn't all bad. I actually love using it on commercial breaks when I watch my favorite TV shows live. It's fun to hashtag the show name and see what other people think. (: Have a great weekend Sierra!

    1. These shoes are great, especially considering Valentinos are over ten times more expensive haha. I bet I'll never own a pair either. That sounds like a fun use for twitter! I'll have to try it out! Thanks!

  2. Love the long hem on the back of this. Your leather leggings totally have me ready for fall! I love twitter. It's way better than Facebook for me because the people I follow use it more for funny and fun short statements.

  4. Love this! You look great in red, Sierra! And thanks for showing me how to style a hi-low top! I love hi-low dresses and skirts, but I never know what to do with blouses.

    Thanks so much for linking up with Friday Favorites! Have a fab weekend!

    1. Thanks, Christie! Hi-low tops can be a lot of fun! They always look good with pants and with thicker varieties of leggings. You can even pair them with a skirt if the low part isn't too long or if you tuck the back of it into the skirt!

  8. Red top!! I definitely want this look .. Just the right blend of sexy and loud yet simple and sweet. I love the neckpiece and loved the way you have teamed it up with your gold watch and not to forget those shoes, matching the whole look! Your leather pants are a killer!
