Space Cadet

What Moustache Man affectionately calls me when I’m off in my own world.  The top is fitting for the nickname isn’t it?

I picked up these leather hot pants at a J Brand sample sale.  Since MM and I found a fairly abandoned photo spot, I decided to do some hot pant testing.  After some kicks, jumps, and sprints, I gave them the green light.  Can’t have these suckers splitting on me unexpectedly.  But does that even ever really happen?

I’ve got some more DIY’s on the way . . . been scouring for supplies and other fun stuff.  Can’t wait!

    Fabulous photos! Love the shorts. My fear is less about having shorts split than it is having them ride up with movement and reveal a bit too much or just become awkward. Looks like this pair would pass the test!
