Black on Plank


When frost bites, layering is one of your fashionable key goals. You don't want to look over layered because you'll look fresh out of (insert accent here) New York. Here in Cen-Cal that's considered over done.

We don’t want too much bulk. We don’t want things that are too short. We don’t aim for sweater over button up. We look at things in proportions and aim to tell a cohesive story about balancing your body type.

My body type is petite, with a short torso, longer legs. I focus on emphasizing that because I love looking tall. If you like looking cute and petite, a longer peplum blouse would be an essential. If you're like me, a long shirt split down the sides flows perfectly with skinny jeans and boots. Add something to split your body where you want the most attention. For my body type, I love bringing attention to the size of my waist. And tying a button up ties in well with my style.

Rock The Boat

When you learn something new, on average you'll store it away in your notes, add a bookmark or even do a status update on your social media. Little did you know, the first and best thing you should do is apply it to your life immediately. It's those new things that you learn that don't quite change you, but create a better version of you. An upgrade isn't always a bad idea right?

Many of the greats know this: if you really want something, go get it. Waiting can help you gather new ideas and plans, but what's really going to get you started is moving forward and taking that risk. You've got nothing to lose. It's easier done, than said.

Our Future is Our Tulle

As we take a glimpse to the last year, it was merely a few days ago; at the alluringly beautiful memories and reminiscence reflections that simply glow. We flashback at the sizzling memories tanned in shorts and full of vain, and my favorite recent cold winters that pour of nothing but frosty rain.

To the right I pageant my choices of inspiration for holiday wear. And know I'm thankful for all your love, and leave you here with all my tender loving care.

Cheers to a new year of nothing but AWESOME.

Christmas Outfit

I'm rather hesitant of the cold weather, besides receiving a plethora of warnings for a couple of frozen upcoming days. Even though my ensemble isn't ideally the least important subject, I'm shipwrecked about where my loved ones will be. Without a doubt in my mind, they will each be scattered which means double-o seven on my outfit again.

A mix between summer and winter parades an outfit that doesn't need running from the car to the party house. Instead of sandals, this would also be great with a pair of sequin platforms or some standout nasty gal boots. The point is to make this sweater stand out even more while you stay warm. Red is for the woman that's ready for the attention, give them a reason to stare.

Holiday Outfit Inspiration

Looking back I recall my festivities in one house. Our generation would greet, eat and run off to the favorite room of the house to mingle about our year. One very important way of life is to accept that traditions change and as you get older you get to create your own.

Since Ill be running around house to house, plate to plate, I need something comfortable that is going to work well in several cities, scenarios and activities for about 12 hours. It's quite simple, a short sleeved tee, a pleated skirt and a pair of sandals. You may opt for some camel boots and it'll pass as less painful - more on trend.

A simple outfit inspiration for the invigoratingly overworked tee wearing cool kid. Let your hair and your accessories be the star of the day this Christmas.
