INTERLUDE: VENICE BEACH WITH THE BABE



Just a quick update of what I've been up to. My boyfriend and I did a spontaneous trip to Venice Beach this week. I got him his valentines gift: an Indian leather bracelet with a secret inner pocket. This will be our first Valentine's Day together. He is probably pooping his pants. ;)

I am also adding more structure to my blog and switched up the layout a tad! Not too much, but enough for me to check on it every five seconds like a proud mama, haha. 

Hope all is well with you kitties!

GRAY + BROWN



 CRYSTAL DISCO love+lemon 
SWEATER/ SKIRT/ BOOTS thrift 
SOCKS dollskill


Browns and grays are currently my obsession. All my outfits have been revolved around these color combos this month. I have a feeling, and it kills me to say this, that Kim Kardashian is what got me loving this duo. Ugh I am not a fan of the Kardashians so trust me when I say it is killing me to admit that. 

This necklace is absolutely beautiful. One of my prize pieces I try not to wear too often (I tend to break things). Crafted skillfully and definitely a head-turned.

Best of 2015: Your Favorite Posts/Outfits + A Few Facts



2015 did me well. My goal was to put more time and effort into this blog and I believe I succeeded. I had many ups and downs this year, but like most things I don't regret anything. Everything is a lesson to be learned I believe.

I noticed my style has really morphed this year compared to 2014. Last year I focused more on grunge and simplicity along with very minimal colors. I noticed this year I embraced more colors and patterns into my wardrobe. I played with layering and stepped out of my comfort zone. 

2015 I tried to put more of my other passion, writing, into the blog as well. I wrote a few "articles" (I like to call them) about things that I felt needed more of a spotlight: my anxiety disorder and the "war" on equal opportunity objectification.
