Wearing | sweater c/o Furor Moda • Line and Dot shorts c/o Bollare • ASOS clutch • socks (previously worn here) c/o Richer Poorer • vintage bootsWriting to you in a near sugar-induced coma at this very moment. After all, it's the time of the year to overindulge and what's better than leftover fudge brownies, cake pops, and the peppermint barks you found in your Christmas stocking? Enjoying it all in a sugary-sweet outfit as this, obviously! Viva la dolce vita. Now, I'm about to eat away my chocolate quota for the entire 2012 year. Pass the truffles, please!

Wearing | necklace c/o LYLIF • sweater c/o Romwe • dress (worn as skirt) c/o Lulu's • bag c/o The Editor's Market • socks c/o Richer Poorer • shoes c/o Jellypop
Merry Christmas, everyone!!! Today is the last part of my Jewel Tone collaboration with Lulu's—channeling a casual Christmas look and ending the series strong with Pantone's color of the year for 2013: emerald green. Hard to believe it's almost a new year! Wishing you all a magical day filled with love, meaningful conversations, gifts, hearty laughs, rose-tipped noses, warmth, and grinch-eating unicorns. xo

Wearing | Forever 21 striped cardigan • vintage red cardigan • Zara scarf • skirt c/o Romwe • "Luminaire" watch in Rose Gold c/o BCBGMAXAZRIA
Okay, so I think you can all tell by now that I'm a gold digger. Seriously. I adore traditional gold to bits. Anything with even the slightest hint of it gives me a little burst of joy. I know it's incredibly overdone during the holidays, but I have a reserved seat as a VIP gold member on the bandwagon and I refuse to get off! But you know, sometimes it's good to switch it up a bit with different variations of the hue. Burnished gold? Eh. White gold? What's that? A fancy name for silver? Rose gold? With my love for roses? Absolutely! In the color of Long Island winter sunsets, this pale copper metal is an undeniably luxe and feminine alternative. And I don't know about you, but the perfectionist in me hates mixing gold and silver together. If I'm wearing a gold watch, I MUST wear all gold accessories. Same goes for silver watches. But rose gold watches? They complement all types of metallics! I'm a firm believer in equal opportunity and this watch I'm wearing here in rose gold just makes it easier for me to invite guests into my arm parties. Treat yourself for getting all that last-minute Christmas shopping done and add the perfect warm accent to your fall/winter/every-season-after-that wardrobe with this timeless "Luminaire" watch, available at any BCBG store near you. Happy holidays!

Wearing | cardigan c/o 2020AVE • dress c/o Lulu's • With Love from CA necklace c/o PacSun • ASOS clutch • Cheap Monday ring • "Dakoda" boots c/o DV by Dolce Vita
Round three of Jewel Tones with Lulu's! I wore this ma-gem-ta dress to a semi-casual dinner party the other night and threw on this baggy cardigan to play the whole outfit down. On another note, I've awed over this horse-embellished clutch ever since I saw the cat version of it in one of Natalie's outfit posts, so you bet I hit "add to cart" the second I saw this on sale on ASOS a few weeks ago. Now, if only they had one with foxes... my life would be complete.

Slightly depressed that the semester has ended. For a hot minute, I almost considered changing my major from fashion merchandising to journalism because of the impact my English class has made on me. Passionate professors who teach with lighthearted humor, empathy, and sole purpose will always make going to school worthwhile. But they say that all beginnings dwell a magical force and to say the least, the start of my winter break has been pretty darn fabulous so far. Hello, seven whole weeks of liberation!

Wearing | sunglasses from ZeroUV • Nollie bralette from PacSun • skirt c/o Lulu's • jacket c/o Romwe • Nine West belt • Forever 21 bag
Part two of Jewel Tones with Lulu's! Paired this sapphire blue skirt with a velvet bralette and outerwear that was undeniably inspired by Helmut Lang's "Sugar" jacket. I stuck to the design house's signature downtown minimalist look and went with all solids and clean cuts here. Definitely a step away from my usual woven knits and tons of texture mixing.
P.S. I was recently interviewed by Teen Vogue for their Blogger Spotlight! Feel free to read it here :)

'Tis the season of chunky knit beanies, fuzzy sweaters, and cocktail denim! Nothing like a sparkly, gold pair of metallic jeans to welcome the festive spirit without being too over-the-top during the daytime.

Wearing | scarf c/o Lulu's • sweater + pleated shorts c/o Romwe • socks c/o Richer Poorer • boots c/o Oasap (similar here)Let's face it, nothing's spared from sparkle around this time of the year when all that shimmers and shines bask in their holiday glory. And no, I'm not talking about sequins or glitter or metallics or sparkling champagne, but gems and jewels! With that said, I've teamed up with one of my favorite sites, lulus.com, for a month-long series where I will be showcasing a new jewel-toned piece every Tuesday of December! Today's focus is on this scarf in an opalent shade of rust. Somehow, this rich red-orange hue always awakens my bohemian soul, giving every outfit a fiery color splash. Who says you gotta resemble a disco ball stand out?
