Happy Wednesday! The temperatures have dropped enough in Southern CA to officially deem it sweater season. I’ve been enjoying having the ability to play with layers a bit and busting out my softest sweaters. As much as I gripe about LA not really having seasons, I was talking to
my fiancee’s cousin’s wife? a family member who was in town from Minnesota about wishing I could dress for true cold weather. She pointed out that when you do, all anybody really sees is your coat. Hmm…good point. I take it back! I don’t want that!
Pairing neutrals with a pop of red, especially in the form of a long-wearing liquid lipstick and a Starbucks red cup, screams Christmas too me. It’s become more or less my festive uniform throughout the winter season. The clutch came with my Free People reversible vegan tote that I carry all the time to school.
This post is also an homage to these Dior split aviators that spent a short, but meaningful time in my possession. They were actually my birthday present during the Bloomingdale’s 30% off sale. I was torn between these and a classic pair of Celine’s I’d wanted for years. After a quick Snapchat deliberation, I decided on the split aviators in favor of their unique flare. Turns out, maybe a little too unique for me. I wore them twice over the course of a month, and since designer sunglasses aren’t exactly a staple in my closet or my budget, I wanted to get something I could really get some use out of. So I exchanged them for the Celine’s and am so happy I did! I still love these though, and am glad I have something to commemorate our time together. 😛 Outfit details are linked below as well as some of my favorite sweaters!
Mika ran out onto the balcony and was spying on our quick photoshoot. I love that girl. ^^^
