Statement Pieces with Triwa

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.

Drift Into February

February is always a special month for me. For one, it's my birthday month, but it always feels like that's when my new year begins. New promises. New visions. New opportunities. I love taking the month to think about the year and everything that's led to this moment. If I can be captured by more beauty and magic each year, I know I'm living the life I crave.

This past weekend was beautiful. I spent more time exploring around my new city with friends, shooting, all day brunches, and good conversations. Captured below is one of our outings:
