Happy 2014 everyone! I hope you had a wonderful New Year celebration and ready to conquer 2014! I started writing my new year resolution last night, and believe me, the list is long. I feel like there is so much I want to do, but I’m always chasing against time. My mind is always going 1000 miles per hour because I always have new things I want to try and improve. Do you ever feel that way? This year though, I want to be more grounded and take each day as it comes.

Starting off the new year, I wanted to share with you an outfit that is bright and colorful. Since moving to California, I rarely see foliage, at least not in the same intensity I used to experience when I lived in the MidWest. In this shoot with Ryan Chua, we decided to explore San Francisco and to our surprise, we stumbled upon this gorgeous foliage right in the middle of the city.

I hope you’re having a wonderful day and thank you for reading!

    Peplum love all the way. Cool blue and you look sweet. The foliage in the shots was a brilliant idea.

      Thank you Busola!

    I love the boldness of the jacket. Who says a Moto-jacket has to black or brown? This outfit proves them wrong. I think it is wonderful that designers and retailers have decided that this shade of blue does not have to be limited to spring or summer. The peplum top is adorable.

      Thank you Sharon! I’m also glad BB Dakota chose this vibrant blue color for this jacket. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. :)
