Lace and Leather


I haven't had a chance to wear these ankle boots much. I hand studded the booties over Christmas and I remember how much my fingers ended up hurting and how long it took (3-4 hours?) but then how in the end it was totally worth it.

Today's fabulous, it's just beautiful outside! And 'cause Spring Break is officially on! I'm actually not that excited. Everyone is all, "Spring break, freedommmm!" and I'm all, "I'll have nothing to do.. wah!" I have no idea what I'm going to do, I think I'm going to do some of the DIY's I've been inspired to do. I also have some pretty spring pictures that I will put up soon. Everything is blooming so loverly and the birds are singing and la la la~ so wonderful! I hope everyone has a pretty weekend and hopefully all of your icky weather has gone away (I know we've had like three days straight of rain-- should I build an ark?).
