Winter Blues

I've never really been into the Canadian tuxedo thing but then I put together this look and I kinda like the denim on denim overload. I kept my outfit simple by pairing a lighter blue chambray top with some skinny blue jeans and layered a white & blue knitted sweater over to pull the whole look together. I accessorized with a simple Vanessa Mooney silver necklace tucked underneath my collar to add a little pop of shine. 

I wore this outfit to the grand opening of Healthy Spot in Costa Mesa! My family friend and his business partner had just opened up their 4th location of Healthy Spot! If you've never heard of it, it's pretty much a dog's happy place. In short, it has everything for your dog including: healthy organic food & treats, award winning grooming, doggie daycare, pet supplies, chew toys, and so much more! You should definitely check out one of their four locations if you haven't already. They're other locations include Santa Monica, West Hollywood, and Marina del Rey.  

I attended the fun filled event with my family and Mr. Milo (he got a fancy new haircut, massage, pedicure, etc at their grooming center and loved it there). Hundreds of people also brought their pups to the event to sample the healthy organic dog treats, to take pictures with their puppy in the photo booth, and to obviously check out the beautiful new store. Some people even adopted the adorable pups that the I.C.A.R.E. foundation brought to the opening. All in all it was a great and exciting day and my pups can't wait to taste all the new goodies I got them! Check out some of the pictures that I snapped of the event at the bottom of the post!

Versatility is key to a successful wardrobe. It's important to me that I'm able to wear most of my clothes year round (but that's only possible because I live in Southern California where the weather is typically beautiful all year long). I usually try to buy pieces that can be worn simply as is and then creatively layered for the chillier months. That way I can get the most bang for my buck! I mean...if you're going to spend a pretty penny on something, you should be able to wear it more than once a year!

I love to get creative and restyle my spring/summer pieces for fall/winter. And I find that maxi skirts are surprisingly perfect transitional pieces in my closet. 

This Daniel Rainn maxi already doubles as a dress so it really is the ultimate versatile piece! During the summers, I'd pull up the skirt to my chest over my bikini and simply belt it for a casual day by the pool or at the beach. For the cooler months, I style it as a skirt with a light cashmere sweater, a leather jacket, and some little booties. If it was colder, I probably would have thrown on some fleece-lined tights for an extra layer of warmth.

I know I'm a tad bit late with the post that recaps outfits from 2013...but better late than never. Here's a little flashback of some of my outfits over the past year. You'll see below that I really don't confine myself to a specific style of dressing. I just simply dress to suit my mood for the day. There's really no method to this madness.
