Keepsake Dress | Valentino Clutch (smiliar here under $120) | Valentino Shoes |

If I could choose one color to wear every day, I’d probably choose pink-a variety of pink. I’m really loving this blush color currently, especially with this heat wave we are experiencing in LA. Yes-a heat wave in the middle of November! I would much prefer to be wearing boots, sweaters and scarves but that’ll wait until next month! In exactly a month, I’m setting out for a roadtrip to Colorado to see friends & family, visit some new places, and to be able to bring Mia out to the snow. Growing up, my family and I took a lot of roadtrips-and I mean a lot. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve really done a roadtrip, so this trip next month couldn’t come soon enough.

Let’s talk about this pink ruffled dress for a second…I’m in love with it! It’s the perfect shade of pink, lightweight and it moves well. Quick tip: I wouldn’t wear this dress to a wedding or somewhere you plan on waving your arms around. The dress restricts you from doing that kind of movement. But, it’s perfect for a holiday dinner or work event!

So,I have this love hate relationship with the holidays. Let’s start with the bad, I hate how busy my hometown gets. We get a lot of tourists during the summer months and when it begins to die down from late August to mid-November, I can’t tell how relaxing it is to be able to walk around leisurely. But, with the holiday season starting, this simply will mean more people, more traffic, and more clutter. On the flip side, I also love the holidays because that means holiday dresses, holiday parties and the festive feeling around the city. As we gear up towards the holidays and cyber week, be sure to check out the blog for your go-to destination for cyber week sales, gift guides and sales that are happening.
