New Obsession: Leather Shorts

I don’t know why this SoCal pinup gets so obsessed with certain fashion and clothing items, but I do. Today, my obsession is all about the leather shorts (or leather LOOK shorts).

Maybe it’s me dreaming of getting out of the cold but not yet ready for the dripping hot of summer. Usually I’m not one for shorts (I’m really pale) but there’s something about the simple cool factor that leather look shorts bring that I just love.  AND they come in all price ranges which suits me just fine.

You can wear them tough or super sweet. I like the idea of a light sweater or comfy T-shirt with the shorts and some funky jewelry and maybe some booties.

I cannot wait to break these out when it stops being so cold!

Crack that whip! It’s time for you to get back to work after a nice little break.

Is anyone else at least a little happy to get back to normal? Or are you still on mini-break mode?

Now back to work pinups!

My Week Of Luxury with the ILX *Pics & Video* #weekwithilx

There’s nothing in SoCal like a nice car. I spend more time in my car, it seems, than sitting in my living room.

A few weeks ago I was asked to test drive the new Acura ILX Hybrid. This, my friends, is a luxury car that I might be able to afford.

I tend to beat the hell out of cars, I have an SUV right now that I use to haul EVERYTHING around in. But getting into the Acura ILX, I have to tell you, I started to respect the car. It’s not just there to get me from A to Z, this is a really nice car. Leather, XM radio, rear view cameras, heated seats (my favorite!), DVD sound, and an econ button that helps you save even more gas (41 miles to a gallon at the high end).

I did have a time with the navigation. You can actually talk to it and it will find what you are looking for, if the place is in its index. I was looking for a pizza place and it wasn’t in the index, so I put in another business I was told was nearby.

And just because this is a hybrid, doesn’t mean it can’t take off. The ILX has a lot of pick up and go, and my partner and I would find any excuse to hop in the ILX to take it out on the road during my week with ILX. Check out the video below of my first time on the freeway with the ILX.

I would have to say that this is a great luxury car. I can fit four comfortably, and I can maneuver the driver’s seat up/down, front/back, just to fit me. :-) And I have to say that I only used half a tank of gas over my whole week. That was with all of the extra trips that I would not normally have taken.

I already miss those heated seats.

YOU TOO CAN HAVE THE ILX FOR A WEEK. Enter my #WeekWithILX contest!

Acura has invited me to test the new ILX and share my honest thoughts through social media. I may receive product, access or content, but all commentary is my own.
