Hello hello!

We are T-MINUS one week until Christmas! Say what?!

Today’s my last day in Palm Beach before I dash off to Texas. I’ve spent the past week shooting SO many fun outfits for you guys. I cannot wait to share them! I did this so I could take a proper break and spend time with family. I do this every year – it’s my way of unplugging. (Even bloggers need to unplug every now and then!)

I’ll still be posting but not shooting! You would be amazed at how much time it takes between styling, steaming, hair and makeup and location scouting. It’s a lot! AND the best part of the holidays? NO EMAILS. Can I get an, “AMEN!” Bloggers are bombarded with emails on a daily basis but during the holidays, it’s quiet so I CAN’T wait!

Want know what’s on the agenda this Christmas break? One spa day. Lots of holiday movies in PJs with my family and boyfriend (yes, he’s coming!). Some shopping (for myself, duh). And reading.

But I digress – let’s talk about today’s look!

Today’s look is more personal and less “festive.” It’s (mainly) from Shopbop, one of my favorite retailers for contemporary. I love it because it touches on so many things I love: pink, cropped jeans and a hint of leopard. Let’s start from the bottom up.

My jeans are from La Vie, Rebecca Taylor’s sister line inspired by her travels to France. La Vie is casual-cool – think peasant blouses, patchwork denim, and lacy tops – balancing Taylor’s signature femininity with a modern je nais se quoi. For my petite ladies, they run long. I hacked off an inch with a pair of scissors but you could easily get them hemmed. Click here to see more options from La Vie!

My long sleeve crew neck tee is (surprisingly) Express! It’s super inexpensive and a great way to introduce animal print into your look without actually wearing real animal skin.

My blazer is from (sigh) Smythe. Ever since discovering this line on Shopbop, I’ve been obsessed with their contemporary, flawlessly tailored jackets and coats featuring nostalgic colors, textures and prints. Some of their designs are borrowed from the boys – so cool. And their designs have been super popular with celebrities and bloggers. Lots of immediate success for this brand.

Yes, it’s on the pricey side but it’s well worth it. Another blazer you’ll have in your closet for years…

As always, click the pink links to shop today’s look.
