Time is such an interesting concept in ways it passes quickly and slowly.
 A year ago I took a few photos for this blog, at the time I had been posting for a month. I returned to the location for that photo shoot and it is was poetic how much had changed and how much had not.

Fast forward to today I enjoy mixing patterns, textures, and classic elements while styling looks.

Cold Shoulder

Layering season is in full swing and whether it is accessories such as bracelets, necklaces, or sweaters more is more. It has taken a while for the temperatures to drop this year but it has finally cooled down enough in Los Angeles for me to dawn an over sized sweater and leggings of the leather variety. This look is a stylish yet comfy way to run last minute errands or attend a festive holiday event. It has begun to feel like fall and it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
