I'm not sure I can remember exhaling at all; moving into the feeling that your breath on my skin could suffice for us both. 

Happy Monday Everyone! And how was your weekend? Mine was so relaxing and productive all at the same time. Saturday I went to the beach with my dog and boyfriend. That little Husky of mine loves swimming in the ocean and I LOVE that I have a dog that loves that ocean as much as I do. A little farther down the coast from Santa Barbara is a Nature Preserve for Seals, which is so cool to go see (Carpinteria Bluffs National Park) if you're ever around santa barbara take a nice walk and check it out. Anyways, sometimes a stray seal or two will just ride the tide and it will take them North where they climb onto our favorite beach. On Saturday a mama seal and her pup were on the beach and we got to watch them just roll around on the sand ( I added a photo below), until they eventually got back in the water and headed home South. I then spent the rest of my day making jewelry and eating yummy food. My sunday looked pretty much the same minus the beach, so I'm feeling extra blessed and super grateful for where I'm at in life, but always ready and working towards new adventures, experiences, and opportunities to keep moving forward! So that's my mini feel good rant.  
And while we're on the subject of working and new opportunities I have recently teamed up with a pretty cool brand called WellBinder. They're a new denim line straight from Los Angeles, my favorite city, plus I've been on the lookout for a casual acid wash jean, so it looks like we're simply a match made in heaven. These jeans are so versatile (they look great with a classic nude pump) but for this particular look I wanted to do something fun and funky for warmer days, yet still very wearable on the street. I started by pairing the denim with a turtle neck crop top to really push the early 90's feel, and then went with a denim button up to take it all the way. Topping it all of with some hightop converse to truly add some fun funk, a red lip and matching leather cross body bag to add a little maturity, and some layered up chunky necklaces because why not?? A little sparkle never hurt anybody.
Happy Monday everybody, have a wonderful week, make sure to do something good for your soul.

Breathe me in. All I've ever wanted was my own kind of happily ever after, and you're showing some sure signs of what that could be.

It's NYFW and I'm all the way over in California scrolling through my Instagram feed admiring all of the beautiful clothes taking front and center on the New York City runways. If it weren't for the freezing weather I also keep seeing, I'd seriously be bummed that I can't be there myself. But luckily with all this amazing social media I get to (sort of) see the excitement myself from the front row of other fashion attendee's phones, and I have to say, I love it all! Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Mara Hoffman, Nannette Lepore, Fendi, and of course, that Tommy Hilfiger show on the football field?! Ughhh! I'm lusting over everything...Like always! 
I'm feeling the New York layered up vibes (I must be taking hints from all the New York posts I'm seeing) so I took advantage of one of the few cloudy/slightly chilly/foggy Santa Barbara days we've in a while, and layered up. Plus I got to style a look with these brand new Nikes that I'm so in love with... For the longest time I was really hesitant about the sporty-sneakers/casual-streetwear trend that's been happening, but once I gave in and did it myself I realized this is the coolest/comfiest, most convenient outfit ever... so shout out to all my ladies that have been rocking this foot-friendly trend all along, I absolutely get it, and my feet appreciate it too.
