Coated Denim

One of my favorite trends right now is coated denim and this style from Hudson is currently one of my most worn pieces. They are able to give a leather-like look without a huge investment and dress-up or add edge to any outfit. These are some other coated denim styles that I have my eye on.

Sometimes, Security Cameras Catch Something Totally Different

One of my favorite bloggers, Sydney from The Daybook, shared this video today and it just made my morning. These small heartwarming acts of kindness, friendship and love made me tear up a little. It's refreshing to remember and celebrate the good in this world.

Sometimes it's best to keep things simple; like during a bike ride to dinner under the moonlight.

So Very Thankful

Gratitude turns what we have into enough.

I hope everyone had a happy, peaceful and enjoyable Thanksgiving. Being this was my first Thanksgiving away from home, I feel lucky to have spent the last week with my family. My mom, aunt and uncle were here with us in Florida for the holiday and I can't thank them enough for making the trip. While our time spent alone in this unfamiliar and beautiful place has been exciting for my husband and I, the feeling of having family close, knowing they were right down the street was so nice. While I was initially determined to show them all that Florida has to offer, to entertain their every second, I soon realized and soaked up the beauty of doing close to nothing at the beach. And coming from much colder places, soaking up the sun with a cocktail in hand was music to my family's ears. But so was South Beach, next time boys. I am so very thankful to have spent this time with my family. I truly miss you already.

I was able to get just a few pictures yesterday as I was running out the door. Lately, one of the only things reflecting the season have been my outfits; the weather has been beyond amazing. It feels a little strange mixing the holidays with such a tropical setting but I'll take it! We have been preparing for a few firsts these past couple days, all very exciting. My mom, aunt and uncle will be staying with us for Thanksgiving and they all arrive tomorrow; our first visit from our family in California. This is also our first holiday as a married couple in our first place together. I will also be preparing my first thanksgiving dinner. Good thing my family is extremely easy going.

Beach. Love.


I am, without question, most comfortable in a swim suit. For that reason, there are a lot of things about Florida that have been so very comforting and enjoyable; the weather, water and beautiful beaches. I always think to myself that it would be amazing to get to take these things home with me when our time here is over...probably not going to happen which is why I am committed to exploring every nook and cranny this place has to offer.
