darker days








Dark and sophisticated, two words I usually wouldn’t use to describe my personal style. Except for today. I grabbed this skirt at a sample sale I was working last year and haven’t worn it until this day. I paired it with a black embroidered crop top, some heels, and worked it. It was a not-so-casual Sunday, and I would probably wear a look like this to a networking event (given I’m in the fashion industry outside of my blog). Why not?!

a long road ahead







I love working with different types of formalities, different lengths, and different textures. I’ve had both of these pieces for a while and thought about matching them just recently. Christian and I were venturing down the back side of Mt. High (on a failed adventure to another top secret area) and found these railroad tracks. I remember the first time Christian wanted to use me as a subject in a photo – I was so nervous! It’s hard to believe he’s one of my best friends now and I’m begging him to take photos of me!

mountain high layers











One of my best friends happens to be one of the most talented photographers in the world. Christian, who I met at my old job, and I travelled up to Mt. High. I wanted to go play in the snow, but what they don’t tell you is that as soon as it snows up there, they block that shit off. So we stopped at the highest point we could reach, which was still very, very high. 


The weather was cold, and I’m not used to dressing for cold weather anymore. I was absolutely underprepared, which was fine, cause we were in a car most of the day. I tried my best at warm weather layering (while still feeling like my California self) and thought I did a pretty good job!
