I already can't believe it's the end of 2016. Ever since the beginning of the year, I felt it moving so quickly with each month. So much has happened and it's been an incredible year to make my new home in LA with so many great memories. This New Years, I want to celebrate everything that's happened and also share some fun pieces for the occasion! I've gotten to partner up with Willow & Clay for their new NYE collection via Nordstrom to bring you some fun pieces for the holiday!

First day the temperatures began to cool and I couldn't wait to bring out some new pieces I've been loving as of late. Since my favorite types of spots are nature based, I put together some neutral and minimal tones to create something that would compliment that. I love any good pair of suede boots (especially ones that hug a leg well) and a classic leather jacket. This one was a fun addition because it's longer and oversized so I could pair it with a dress or skirt. Take a look below:
Wasn't long before I pulled out the black ;) Caught roaming the streets of my neighborhood getting coffee from one of my favorite spots, Eightfold. The barista understood my pain when he said, "I, too, have refused to take my leather jacket off in the summer." I laughed pretty hard since he couldn't have worded it better. I brought out my ripped denim jacket because I just missed it too much and paired it with a few other fun accessories.
I snagged a new pair of Jeffrey Campbell booties that I am head over 'heels' in love with. The chain detailing in the heel gives it just enough edge while being a classic every day shoe. I also wanted to introduce a new brand from Stockholm, Sweden– Triwa. I'm wearing their Midnight Bonnie sunglasses + Ivory Klinga watch. Both of which are timeless and classic. I love good statement pieces that can be used in every day wear.
