Welcome 2015

And here's one expressing how shocked I am 2014 is almost over:

Happy New Years Eve everybody!! 2015 is literally a few hours away, so I thought I would do the last blog post of 2014! This year, my friends and I are going to ring in the new year with dinner and some Snowflake Lane sighting. For those of you who have never been to Seattle, Snowflake Lane is a huge holiday tradition, where people gather to watch fake snow fall from the sky, live toy solider drummers, and snow princesses along the streets.  

For this evenings activities, I have chosen a simple, minimalist dress and a black leather tuxedo coat on top. I paired that with some gold metallic shoes and a sparkly headband, because who doesn't wear sparkles to a New Years party?! Hope everyone has a fun and safe night!

Thanks for reading!

Socks and Skirts

{Sweater: Macy's, Skirt: Nordstrom Rack, Jacket: Macy's, Boots: Sam Edelman, Socks: Old Navy}

School and swim have been very hectic lately, but I am happy to say I will be blogging more frequently now that I have worked out a schedule! :)  Also, I will be announcing some huge news about this blog in a couple weeks so stay tuned!
It is safe to say that I am a skirts and dresses kind of gal.  Unfortunately, here in Seattle, it is quite chilly because we have some powerful winds.  The most common way of 'winterizing' skirts and dresses is by throwing on some tights or leggings... anyone bored of doing that? I most definitely am! So another cute way to wear your skirts and dresses without baring your whole leg is to put on some knee or thigh high socks.  It keeps most of your leg covered, and looks tres chic.  I wore the socks with my ankle boots because I wanted to show how wearing tall socks does not mean you have to wear tall boots with them.  In fact, you could wear flats if you really wanted to (click here for a visual).
