Although it has been a couple of weeks it still seems so surreal that we moved. People keep asking how I feel about all the changes, I’m happy but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss it too. Funny isn’t it, how one moment can feel like forever and once it is over it’s as if it happened in a blink of an eye. No, it was not an easy decision or journey by far, there were a lot of challenges and things we never anticipated that arose as well.
As I mentioned in part one during the beginning of the mask craze most had to be handmade as companies did not regularly provide face masks. Before the mandate even started we began making masks in our household which is why I have quite the collection by now. As you may have guessed there was a lot of trial and error to finding out what works and does not work for me personally.
First off happy new year! To kick this year of blogs off I wanted to highlight my favorite winter outfits. All of these looks are cozy, cute and affordable. I have provided the brands/ companies, however, there are no direct links since these styles are pretty popular. If you have any questions, leave a comment or send me a direct message.
Recently, I have been obsessed with shopping the clothing section at Costco. The deals are unbelievable but what about the quality overall? Whenever you shop no matter what the price tag says, there are a few things to check to make sure the tag matches the item’s quality worth. The type of material, origin it was made in, stitching and dying process all contribute to the actual garment’s quality rather than just paying for the brand itself.
The holiday season is finally here or should I say already here? ha. I feel as if these last couple of months have flown by. Thanksgiving is versatile as some people dress fancy and others keep it casual. After all we are all just sitting around at the kitchen table with the purpose of showing gratitude. Whether you enjoy dress up or not this look book covers various styles.
Prior to skipping out with this purse I had never experienced the backpack purse. It was my twenty second birthday, my mom and boyfriend had taken me shopping where I found the prettiest fall booties. The sales lady asked if I would like to receive a purse at a discounted rate for purchasing the booties. That is when I laid my eyes on my new obsession, the backpack purse. A few weeks ago my beloved bag’s zipper broke. I placed it off to the side and thought it was time to move on.
Although I own a lot of dresses this one has been receiving the most love since I purchased it. California and fall sometimes go together well, this year it has been so dry. It is November and we still have yet to have a rainy day. Ugh! I love fall so I feel a little cheated. Since this dress has about two inch straps it is perfect for this odd weather, however, it can be layered in multiple ways if it ever gets to fall weather here.
Since Halloween is on a Wednesday this post is focused on not only last minute ideas but also inspiration for work appropriate costumes. Suggestions on how to make costumes work appropriate are also included for the not so typical options. I did flat lay photos as each costume’s makeup depends on how strict your dress code is at work.
If only the weather were actually cold and not in the high 80’s this jacket would be my daily, however, it is more of a nightly? ha. This red lil sassy jacket is by the brand KUT from the Kloth. It mocks the feel of suede but is vegan obviously. Let me just stop for a second to say it has REAL pockets. Yes, ladies real phone holding pockets that zip. I hate mock pockets, they are such a tease.
Buckles of Country
Above are the oldest boots in my collection, at about four years old. These tend to get a lot of love during the fall season, however, Carlos Santana boots do not wear out easily. Knee high boots are definitely a staple for fall, I recommend a semi loose classic brown or black color. The buckles on the side provide a unique touch making them give off a cowboy boot vibe.
