We're 1! #happybirthdaytothess

Today is our birthday!!!

Yes, we are officially 1. Is it weird that it feels like my own personal birthday? I can't believe how much I have poured into this blog- sometimes to the point of total insanity. If I could tell you how much time, energy, money, thought, etc running this thing requires I would, but even I can't start to count it all up. That being said I really love this damn thing and I'm so excited and proud to say we've made it to a year old. It's been an incredible experience to learn so much about blogging, building a website, SEO, product placement, PR, marketing, keyword searches, Pinterest, Instagram, photo filters, and that's just the beginning!  It's all enough to make a girl's head spin off. Looking back on starting this blog I had NO IDEA how hard it was going to be or how much work it required, but I'm 100% glad I have stuck it out and kept it going! It's been such a great learning experience and I've also undeniably had so much fun. If you are thinking about starting a blog whether it be about fashion, food, music, travel, WHATEVER it is you're interested in, DO IT!! I had zero experience, this was my first adventure in blogging, so if I can do it so can you :)

I also couldn't have done it without the help of my two amazing photographers Brian Gove and Michele Andersen so huge thanks to them for sticking it out with me. Thank you for being here for the ride and for always supporting us! 

Anyways--- To commemorate our day of birth I'm counting down 5 of my favorite looks from the past year. It was really fun going through all these posts and remembering all that went into each one. It was actually really difficult to only pick 5-- It's truly been an amazing year and thank YOU for reading my blog right from the beginning (and all the new readers too!) I love all of the feedback I've received and I'm truly grateful.

#4 is the Monique Lhuillier dress I wore for Jenny Bernheim of Margo and Me's engagement party. Such a STUNNING dress! I don't always get such a chance to dress up, and it was truly a night to remember. Many congrats to her and Freddy on their wedding this past weekend. Full post on this dress and their engagement party here

#3: Fall for White

#3 is this all white/neutral look. It was exceptionally hot despite being November in LA when I blogged this look. I like breaking the rules-- like white after labor day :) You may have seen this look on OOTD Magazine or as featured by Sam Edelman as a #samsgirl as well. Full post here.

#2: Think Pink

#2-- If there's anything I love it's fashion for good, and it's been a mission of mine since the beginning to try as much as possible to buy clothes that give back and/or are ethically sourced. This post was for Breast Cancer awareness in October. Full post is here.

#1: Festival Fashion

#1 is..... Festival fashion!! No surprise here... Music and fashion go hand in hand for me and it's always a debate which one I love more- which is why I've started incorporating music into ALL my posts! This post has been to date the nearest and dearest to my heart with also the most writing and personal stories incorporated. Relive Festival Fashion (and it's kick ass playlist) in all it's glory here.

That's about it for our birthday post! Tonight we are celebrating turning 1,  AND the opening of a new restaurant in Santa Monica, Red O! Stay tuned to see the gorgeous dress and pictures from the event on the blog and on Instagram in the next week. xo  

  

Ice Cream

Lately I've been so sick of black. So, today's post is all about the candy colors that have been big for fall this year. I'm wearing one of my favorite unexpected color combinations: pinks and burgundies. There is something so fresh about wearing all color! I paired a burgundy overcoat to tie in my mules, while I kept my sweater and ballerina mini super pale pink and purple. There's just something about such a light and fluffy color palette that makes me smile. I chose to keep my legs bare as we can in California, but for those of you in colder climates a pair of tights would also work well to stay warm.

Also making an appearance in this post is my 2 year old Coton De Tulear, Ladybug, because to me there is nothing more adorable and fluffy than her face. What do we do when it gets cold in Venice Beach? Well, we eat ice cream of course! Ladybug even got a lick ;) Enjoy the look!
