Glitter & Pearls

All In Black + White

I adore days off (thank you, Presidents.)  Though, really, a Monday off is hardly different from the normal Saturday + Sunday off, I feel somehow like I’m playing hooky by missing a typically blech (ick, Mondays) day.  And obviously, I’m still working.  But today, it’s 100% from home, in my pajamas, my hair in tangles, and I’m so so happy.

Mind you, some of the pictures are a bit cheeky …

A simple leather strap … love this one by etsy seller, Artemis Leatherware.

Embellished Fabric straps … Some sewing required pleated fabric camera strap, tutorial here.

Canvas and leather straps are very Hamptons chic and all over the internet right now.

Braided straps … be still, my heart.  I love the boho hippie vibe.  I might be sold.

I instantly fell for this editorial-ish photo snapped in Paris by the fabulous Tommy Ton for  The chic Parisian’s pants are fabulous.  And then I was flipping through my glossy new Free People catalog and I found this Sheer Stripe Romper.  And I had that a-ha moment – the pants were nearly a match!  Are you a fan of the gauzy printed pajama pant?
