Soon I head back to Dallas
for sorority rush, so I’ve been savoring my last few days in LA.
It’s hard to beat perfect beach weather in the winter. Can’t argue with that,

Outfit: Ovi leather
jacket (similar), DVF top, Gap skinnies, no shoes necessary for a beach day!
Accessories: Dolce & Gabbana aviators, top necklace snagged at a flea market in NYC, bottom
necklace thoughtfully given to me by Barbara Harvel Designs, J.Crew clutch (similar)

I love how the
cornflower blue color of my top plays off the ocean so well. I was clearly in a
blue mood, so I added a midnight blue leather jacket that I’ve worn practically
every waking moment since I bought it just a few days ago. And so as not to neglect my signature color pink, I accessorized with a pink clutch ; )
Hope y’all are
happily celebrating the new year and spending time with your family and friends
before school starts up again. What are you most excited to accomplish in 2013?
Sound off in the comments!

    Love Mrs. Harvel's designs! I have one of her necklaces that's similar to yours, but with turquoise and pink stones. Love your metallic-looking stone, so pretty!

      Thank you! I'm so jealous Alex gets to borrow her mother's designs whenever she wants! You could say I have serious jewelry bow envy ; )
