Taking a motorcycle ride has been on my bucket list for years, but the right opportunity hasn't quite presented itself. A large portion of my wardrobe might imply something on the contrary, but my collection of biker boots and jackets is purely for badass inspiration. I expect that someday the time will be right to hop on a bike, but in the meantime I figure there's nothing wrong with planning the perfect outfit for when it does. Sturgis, anyone?

 

Winter Walk

20121222-IMG_0229.jpg

Even though I live in LA where the typical winter day involves temps that hover in the 70's, I happen to be a girl who enjoys the cold - within reason, of course. I love to have a hibernation period in the year to eat soup, cozy up with a blanket, drink red wine, layer, and have an excuse to avoid leaving the house. I don't get much of those excuses here, but I took the opportunity to soak up every bit of the crisp air (followed by delicious hot beverages) when I was in Minnesota. I was so excited to finally have a chance to wear the wool All Saints coat I picked up on major sale at the end of the season last year and my new favorite snood from J.Crew which adds a nice pop of pattern to my darker toned winter outerwear (which in LA is usually a leather jacket). Secretly, I'm still a little sad that the holidays came and went so fast. But the year has gotten off to such a great start, all there is to do is keep up with the fast pace of 2013. Can you believe we're already almost done with January?

I've recently set a goal to start wearing more sparkles during the day. Even though they are traditionally destined for evening cocktails, it would be such a waste not to enjoy the combo of sequins + sunlight. So to start, I opted for my sequin trimmed vest that I actually purchased for a glam rock themed new years party a few years ago and my new favorite Steven crystal studded loafers. The Equipment starry night blouse and Joe's jeans in the color "sunny" coincidentally kept with the day/night vibe, and of course I couldn't wait to debut my new love - the Rocco bag, which hasn't left my arm since I got it. I love the pretty pale gold rivets - just the right amount of glamour on something that's otherwise so edgy.
