We took these pictures last week right before our movie date… in the rain. If you know me in real life, you know that I DESPISE the rain. It's because my hair is naturally curly, and when I straighten those curls the rain does not agree with my decision to make my hair straight. I'm sure that's why I look a bit disgruntled, and the pictures are dark and gray, but hey- it's a blog, and I can style an outfit, but I can't change the weather. So here are my rainy, grey day pictures in my warm and fuzzy leopard coat. (P.S. I really want to wear this coat with boyfriend jeans and a white or black top and strappy heels... I would actually prefer to style it that way versus a dress. Weird? I think not.)
