Suede, Stripes & LEOPARD PRINT

Bon soir! 
Today is a fine day because the rain has come and the humidity has finally lifted!!
When I'm lucky enough, the day after a long night's drizzle makes way to a clear, sunny morning.

On days with 0% chance of precipitation and the assurance of dry ground, 
I jump to suede!

Suede is such a lovely material and once I saw that bright splatter of red, my self-control was beat.
Personally, the texture of suede is quite entertaining. 
Why, just a few hours ago I was able to stroke my shoes whilst waiting for my finance professor to arrive.

Now that I've established that I'm weird,
here is a simple one-piece dress with...
pockets, which I actually used regardless of the fact it made my left hip look bunchy.
Quite frankly, unless we're going to a gala, pockets should be used for their utilitarian glory.

Yet another shot of my splendid marble ring.
Today I have matched it with my hearty, red shoes.
I admit it's subtle, but the ring really did give a bit'o color to the top half of the look.

There are few shoes more comfortable than a wedge sandals. 
These are great, particularly because they give you the height and lengthen your silhouette without the strain of elevated heels in the back.

When I don't want to wear a conventional black, white and (bold color of your choosing) look with a white shirt, black blazer, etc., 
poking people with prints is always a *thumbs up* with me.
In this case, the red provided the black and white, leopard-stripes dress a solid color to stand on so if desired, I probably could have added another crazy print or two!
I would love to experiment different ways to be black, white and red all over.

Just as a side note, here is a picture of my attempt at making homemade pizza.

I admit, it's not the prettiest and the crust is mighty chunky but the turkey sausage and mozzarella were freshly bought from local meat/cheese shops, the pineapple was organic and sweet, 
the italian parsley added a refreshing kick that made it taste like a slice of a home garden 
and the whole grain dough, eaten as it is, truly had a flavor all its own!

Hope you're having a lovely Monday!!
Thank you for taking the time to read!
