When palm trees meet Christmas trees. This is pretty much what a LA Christmas looks like. I haven't had a Christmas tree in my house in years. I thought I could maybe make the commitment this year, but alas I couldn't. I love when I see Christmas trees in other people's houses but not in mine. I'm still traumatized from my dogs using them as their personal fire hydrants years ago. So instead, I like go to the Christmas tree lots, browse their selection, and take in the smell. They smell so good! And the funny thing is, next to the trees there was a dog adoption in the parking lot. Tons of furry friends waiting for nice families to take them home. I would have sooner adopted another dog than get a tree. haha. Dog lover problems, what can ya do?

Quick coffee break while Christmas shopping with my mom last week. Tucked my hair into my turtleneck and added a scarf for extra warmth. Also, I'm starting to incorporate shine and metallic into my outfits to get into the holiday spirit. what are some of your tips for a festive look? I've got lots of holiday parties coming up, and would love to hear some ideas!

basic instinct

Whenever I have nothing to wear (which is a lot of days), my basic instinct tells me T-shirt and jeans. It's the simplest no fail formula and makes a great canvas for fun accessories. This lavender clutch is one of my favorites at the moment, the color is so pretty. It adds a nice feminine touch to most of my tomboy looks and a subtle pop of color to a neutral palette. What are some of your go-to outfit formulas? Let me know!
