no color allowed

I don't mess with winter chill, even if it's 68 degrees and sunny. You get used to perfect weather out here in LA, so the slightest chill is pretty strong. I found this Forever 21 jacket/sweater on sale and couldn't be happier with a "winter jacket" for the (not so) awful weather we've been encountering. 

Also, these black boots from Lulu*s are pretty much a dream come true. They're clean, sexy, and comfortable - a must have for a lady who's just now venturing back into the world of high heels. Layer all of this with a lotta gray and you're in business.

What has been your winter go-to jacket?

meet me in the midi

I always thought I was too short for a midi skirt like this, but this skirt changed my mind. I love the colors and pattern and the athletic feel. I wore this out to brunch and couldn't have thought of a better look.

I probably would have worn a higher, more feminine heel with this look - heels are something I need to invest in a little more.

storms are brewing in your heart

I've noticed since I've dyed my hair dark that a look at typically looked girly looks rather gothic now. Not that I care - I actually really like feeling like a badass, but it is a different feeling. 

On another note, I'm going through an internal battle. I'm learning so much about myself right now and have come to a crossroads of loyalty between a friend and how I feel about a particular issue. I don't even feel stressed about this - I know that I'll make the right choice when the time comes. There's something incredibly settling about being on your own. You don't really have anything to lose. I have a feeling I'm on the verge of gaining something that could change a good deal of things in my life though. But it's not money. Dammit.
