Can you believe that it is December already? I don't know about you, but I'm not much of a cold weather kind of girl. I'm not necessarily excited about the dropping temperatures and the excessive amount of clothes associated with it. I love a nice coat and fierce boots but when that wind slaps you across the face it is not a pleasant surprise. I'll take a beach over snow any day! Don't get me wrong, winter has much scenic value and I absolutely love the holidays, but getting stuck in the snow is not my definition of a good time. So as I prepare myself and my closet for the cold climate to come, I am going to take full advantage of the lingering fall weather. Such as this outfit for example! I bought this dress and jacket at H&M in the spring. They were like a match made in heaven! I love the combo because paired with strappy sandals and a thin belt for a cinched waist, this spring/summer look transitions right into fall with a killer pair of OTK boots. I fell in love with this cross body bag from BEBE, which brought this perfect fall look together!
Coming to terms with the fact that it is December is a bitter sweet feeling for me. This year has flew by, in what seems to be a wink of an eye. It feels like just yesterday I was preparing to launch my website. Spending countless hours perfecting and prepping for with is that you see now. I can't believe that it has been almost a year since I finally decided to take matters into my own hands, create my own outlet and find my own voice. I officially launched Jan 8th, 2015: which also happens to be my birthday!! When I sit back and take a look at all of the highs and lows of this year, I can't help but to smile because the good significantly outweighs the bad. And as crazy as it is that 2016 is coming to a close, it's so exciting to see what 2017 has in store. So as I brave the cold and the new year to come, I look up and thank the man most high for bringing me this far.
