Leaf Me Alone

01felton
I don't exactly consider myself the outdoorsy type but once in awhile I do enjoy being left alone out in the wild. In the midst of our busy lives and constant interaction with technology, it is nice to unplug for a bit and get in touch with nature. I mentioned, in my last Travel Diary post, that we ventured to Santa Cruz last week. After having breakfast at Rocky's (a hidden gem up in Felton), we wandered around the redwoods and breathed in tons of fresh air. When I am traveling around, I usually wear something more laid back like this outfit here... a simple chiffon blouse, a vintage cocoon sweater coat, corduroy pants, and these incredible cow print Swedish clogs! Oh, and don't forget a hat! I almost always keep a hat in the car!

Travel Diary

00sctravel
I can't believe we are half way through December! I also can't believe it's been 6 months since we've moved from Santa Cruz! Thanks to JdV Hotels for hosting us at the Dream Inn, we were able to visit our old stomping ground for a couple of days last week. We walked on the beach, strolled along the coast, and ate at some of our old favorites. However, we did spend most of our time at the hotel because our view was absolutely breathtaking! Imagine towering over the beach and wharf with a view of the Monterey Bay and waking up to the sound of the ocean... it was truly a nostalgic and relaxing experience!

Wintery Pink

01winterypink
Not into wearing bold red and flashy green during the holidays? No worries! Pastel such as muted pink is surprisingly quite appropriate for winter time if you do it right! All you need is a dusty pink textured longline coat, a pair of pink suede booties, a delicate lace peplum top, and a faux fur bag for that extra coziness... VoilĂ ! You've got a perfect wintery pink look! Who ever said you can't wear pastel in winter? Afterall, fashion has no rules!

Not-So-Ugly Christmas Sweaters

01holidaysweaters
Everyone has to have at least one ugly Christmas sweater, and in my case I have 3 or 4 maybe 5 because deep down inside I secretly love them! You do too, just admit it! This season I acquired three new ones (shown above)! An amazing fox print sweater that is actually a men's XS which I wear as a tunic, a fun graphic sweater with candy cane striped sleeves, and a versatile black and white fair isle sweater that is good for the entire winter season not just for the holidays! Whether you love it or hate it, there is something for everyone. Check out my picks below...

Double the Fur

01lighthouse
Besides layering, wearing fur is another favorite thing I love about fall/winter. There is something quite lush and cozy about fur whether it be a giant fur coat or furry mittens. We spent the last weekend at our old stomping ground, Santa Cruz, and the gloomy weather was perfect for fur so I wore not one but two furry pieces! My new La Volta Deluxe wedged booties by Koolaburra are the comfiest and fluffiest thing ever! Despite how edgy they look, they are incredibly comfy especially with the sheepskin lining. I seriously thought I was wearing slippers the whole time, no joke! To make the look more fun, I added this awesome Nila Anthony bag to the mix. I love the mixed camo-like fur combined with the black leather and silver chain. Cozy, edgy, fun... what more can you ask for?
