My "Off Duty" Look

Whenever I have any downtime (which is pretty much all the time), I like to dress super casual. On this particular day, I happened to have a free afternoon, so I threw on my boyfriend jeans with an oversized cardigan layered over a turtleneck sweater. I've been really obsessed with all of these looks I've been seeing.. not only is it a really cool look, but it's also the epitome of warmth + style. I threw on this bright blue coat to give a pop of colour for the day. My sister and I ended up wandering in the art gallery, mainly because there was a special exhibit with some of Van Gogh's and Monet's work. Then we had dinner at a Filipino restaurant called Platito. I've been pairing turtleneck sweaters with everything this season. They're just my go-to pieces to keep me warm while still looking chic. Plus, it's great for layering!

A Moment In Time

As a twenty-something working in retail, I sometimes feel guilty that I can't spend the kind of long and drawn out quality time with my family and friends. Everyone wants to be able to fit everything into their schedules: have a stellar career, see the people they love, have a social life, etc. However,it's impossible for me to do a multitude of things and do them well. This is obviously no way to live long-term, and no matter how busy I am I know it's crucial to spend quality time with the people I care about. Whether it’s hanging with family, friends, colleagues, or old friends you don’t get to see often, it’s important to make sure the time you get to spend with them is as meaningful as possible. I've come up with simple and easy ways to make sure that the time you spend with loved ones feels fulfilling. Everyone has their own way of turning off and tuning out the stressors of daily life, and these are the ones that I feel would work best.

Nothing beats seeing that special someone’s face light up when they open THE perfect gift you just gave them. So what are you looking forward to gifting this holiday season?

The Classic Black Leather Jacket

I've been coveting for a black leather jacket for ages now. It's not that I haven't found the one, or haven't been hunting for it. It's more of a price issue for me. In my opinion, black leather jackets are a staple in your wardrobe. And good quality pieces come with a steep price point. So I was very excited when I received an email from Tobi and wanted to collaborate with me. Obviously, I scrolled through the outerwear section first and fell in love with the Wynn Quilted Moto Jacket.

Since it hasn't been crazy cold out, I decided to show some skin by creating a knot at the bottom of my maxi dress. This is also to show off my silver Chelsea boots that I'm currently obsessing with. Topped it off with a light grey scarf for warmth.
