Today is my birthday and a start to a wonderful New Year! The beginning of the New Year always feels like such a beautiful fresh start. At midnight of New Years Eve, I got to say good bye to the past year and to being one year younger.
I am excited for 2015! It is starting out so amazing already, so I think it is safe to assume that this year will be full of spectacular surprises. I know people are sick of resolutions and such, so if you are not making a New Years Resolution, just enjoy the joy of living and stay appreciative through it all.
To a beautiful New Year and a Happy Birthday to everyone else born on January 1st. I'm off to enjoy my day now.
The sunlight was beaming so brightly in the sky so we made sure to take advantage of the beauty. I feel this beautiful striped shirt from Piperlime and Citizens of Humanity jeans pair very easily together. So the clear choice was to stick with a clean look. I threw a blazer over my shoulders to shield from the cool evening breeze and wore my Colin Stuart booties that I have owned for years now. Sometimes less is really more. Shop My Look:
Can I point out just how lovely it is in Los Angeles now? It's awesome that I can go out wearing just a cotton jumpsuit and a blazer. Sometimes I catch myself hoping for a snowflake to magically fall from the sky to show that it is indeed "winter". But then I realize that I am always cold, so the temperate weather is ideal.
I am a serious fan of a good jumpsuit. It cuts down dress time in half. I love this one in particular because it is really comfortable and the rich grey tone makes it easy to dress up. I spruced it up withthis blazer that is two sizes too big (on purpose) - and it works perfectly! Here are some other jumpsuits that I am loving.
Generally, I like to keep my accessories to a minimum. This rose-toned earring and necklace set from Kurandza is right up my alley. I love this brand because with each purchase, you have the opportunity to give back and support women in Mozambique. Giving back is near and dear to my heart, so whenever I find the chance, I do what I can.

If you celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving! I have been looking forward to this time of the year. Having the opportunity to spend time with loved ones is always very beautiful and something I am very appreciative of. For Thanksgiving, I enjoy evaluating the way I live to ensure that I am placing an emphasis on giving back and spreading love whenever I can. What things do you enjoy doing most for Thanksgiving?
Apart from time spent in great company, I was one of those people courageous enough to brave the malls. I have never gone Black Friday shopping at malls because of the convenience of online shopping, so I am very happy to say that I survived the high- traffic. It is actually quite fun to watch the hustle and bustle in person and honestly, walking around after dinner was genuinely a bright idea.
In the spirit of Black Friday, I picked some of my favorite pieces from Topshop, ASOS and Shopbop. So many stores have great deals, but in terms of variety and value, they are stand out to me. Plus, they all have amazing deals for some guilt- free shopping! We all deserve to treat ourselves every so often.

I'm glad I got my hands on a few pieces from the Alexander Wang for H&M collection. The entire collection was inspired by sportswear, which is not entirely my preference, but I picked up a few pieces that I think transition nicely for day to day wear. This dress is among a few of the pieces that I loved! Since it is getting cooler, I find that it will be a lot easier to wear compared to a few of the other dresses in the collection.
Hopefully H&M has another great collection next year. Perhaps, Balmain? Wouldn't that be something?
