Joie De La Vie

Joie De La Vie means "The Joy of Life" in French.  I didn't know that when I bought this sweater, I bought it because I love graphic anything, especially when it's in black and white.  So before I wore it I asked my sweet friend, Stephanie, who is French (and owns an amazing French restaurant, La Petite Maison here in Georgia) what my sweater said...just in case! I was happy when Stephanie told me that it means "The Joy of Life" because not only do I love the saying and will wear it proudly, but it's also my good friend Cindy's favorite saying so every time I wear it I will think of her!  Speaking of my friend Cindy, she's the mommy behind the blog Surviving Mommy, a must read for every woman - mommy or not!  Check out her latest post on her surprise run-in with Ben Affleck (lucky girl!!)

What I'm Wearing ~
Puffer Jacket: Piperlime (it's currently on a crazy good sale! Like under $50!)
Graphic Sweater: Forever 21 (also on a crazy good sale! Under $20!!)
Faux Leather Pants: Forever 21 (yep, on sale too!) If you have not tried out the leather pants trend these would be a great pair to start with!  They fit like regular trousers but are in fabulous, super soft, just-like-real-leather faux leather.
