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!

And if your style isn’t evolving, you’ll never grow as a “fashion blogger,” as I like to think.

Tularosa is a small village in New Mexico. It’s also the name of one of my favorite new LA-based labels, a sister line of the contemporary fashion label (and another fave) Lovers + Friends. Mega-bloggers like @SincerelyJules and @CollageVintage have been rocking their Cali-inspired designs nonstop lately. And so have I…
