Happy Tuesday and first official workday of the new year! I’m so excited to get back into the swing of things and I’m feeling so motivated with the start of the new year. I’ve been crossing things off my to-do list like a madwoman today, and I just hope this motivation continues over the whole week! My new planner just arrived today and I am oh so excited to start planning and plotting with it. It’s the little things, am I right?!
The weather in San Diego has been slightly chilly (woo-hoo!!) over the past few days, so of course I’ve been jumping at the opportunity to bring out some of my warmer pieces. Well, you know, warm by SoCal standards. 😉 I went a little crazy and bought a bunch of vests during the fall and have only worn just one so far on the blog. I have to say, the black one has been a go-to for me on cold days! I love throwing it on with a simple plaid button down like I did here, because it’s a no fail outfit combination that I don’t have to think about too much. I’ve been living in this cozy flannel ever since I bought it. I own pretty much everything in gingham, but nothing in buffalo check. Crazy, I know!! I threw on my leather riding boots at the last second, which I’ve hardly been wearing this season since it hasn’t ever really gotten cold. I got them at Nordstrom years ago, and they were seriously the best investment! They just keep getting better with age, and the leather is so buttery and soft. I know I’m all about style on a budget, but sometimes you have to invest in nice pieces that will last you forever.
