I Am Happy With Normal

The wedding is over (finally, but it was lovely.)  I have a computer (finally, but still learning to use it.)  Life has been exciting and I've enjoyed every bit of it, but I'm ready for life to get back to normal, whatever that might be.

Anyway, just playing around with the new computer, a MacBook Air, which I predict is really far more than I need, but what can I say?  It's place in pop culture sucked me in.
Onto the practicing…So anyway, here's a picture about a week or so before the wedding…

Leather in the work place!!!  Is this an acceptable trend?  
We have had some colder weather, and I can finally wear this dress from My Tribe.  It's perfect for going into fall and winter.  And can we talk about shape and fit for a minute?  Really quite a classic sheath, and I don't feel like I've been "poured" into the dress.  Plus, I've had to do no alterations with this one.  Here I'm wearing it with an old blouse from Javier Simorra and Doc Martins, which have become my staple shoe lately.

I feel like the blouse underneath kept the look a little softer, not so hard core, which a leather dress might otherwise feel.  (I think I might try it with a blazer next time.)  So would you wear leather to work?

Next week the hubby and I will be headed for San Francisco for our honeymoon, any recommendations, restaurants, sights, museums, places that we should visit?

(Mrs.) J.
