If I Had You To Myself

James Lillis leggings

UO shirt_James Lillis leggings3Standard Fleet Buffalo men’s shirt via Urban Outfitters. James Lillis Cages. Vintage boots

I decided to go the more casual route than the first time I posted pics in the amazing James Lillis Cages.  With a love for men’s plaid shirts that runs so deep I could live in them, I threw on my teal checkered button-down over these chained wonders.  Yes, a random combo from a girl who likes to spew randomness.

I’m apologizing in advance that I will be a sucky blogger over the next week in terms of posting anything new but at least this will give me the opportunity to catch up on everyone’s blogs and comments (thanks as always!).  Melly and I are moving into our new pad and I have craploads of stuff to do, a.k.a. this week I will be an insomniac.

Becs and Mel

Here’s a pic from when we went to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and the only one I could find with suitcases to illustrate we’ll be on the move.  I told you I was random. :)

BTW, the title of this post is B.R.A.M.’s song “If I Had You To Myself.”  I’ve overplayed it so many times that I used up my free listens. Bummer.

    Love those cage leggings! Are they comfortable to wear? In any case, I like the contrast with the plaid shirt. Hope you and Mel move into your new pad ok. I know the feeling… a lot of stress but it can be a lot of fun if you’re doing this together. Oh, and you girls look so adorable in that travling pic!

    Hey Becs!! How is your move going? OMG! I just completely went crazy on Topshop for two days! The first day, I only bought a black pleat skirt, socks and some underwear. Then last night, I saw this white jacket from the boutique that I knew it’s going to sold out in minutes so I’ve grabbed it even though it’s a little too pricey for me. It seems like i’ll do anything for Topshop these days! xxoxoxoxoxo

    I can’t get enough of plaid shirts! Of course, I should have figured that out by now, I’ve been wearing them since I was a little girl (we lived out west, in wilderness, so we didn’t done plaid as a fashion statement, it was just practical), but I love seeing them rise in popularity, they really are fabulous! And the colors of your plaid shirt are just amazing (some of my favorite colors that there are)! :D
