Photo Diary: My Week In Mexico

Hey everyone!

I am so excited to finally share with all of you this post all about my winter trip to Mexico!

For this New Years I was able to spend it in one of my favorite places of all time: Michoacán, Mexico.

With its beautiful history and culture, it was one of the most amazing trips I have taken in awhile.

Below I will attach to you all some of the pictures from my trip with the locations so that you can all get a taste of this amazing state and inspire you to visit.

My Winter Days with JORD

As the winter weather begins to draw to a close it is time to say goodbye to my winter wardrobe and all of the layering that comes with it.

In just a matter of time the sun will finally come out from behind the clouds and once again Los Angeles will become the home of shorts and sandals everyday.

Even though I thoroughly enjoy warm weather over the cold winds, I will be sad to have to say goodbye to my fuzzy sweaters and coats that weren’t warm but I thought were cute.

In this post, I wanted to show you all one of my favorite looks of the season that features my newest love, my JORD watch. This unique watch has hands down become one of my prized accessories with its cool wood detailing and color.

For this look I paired the watch with some of winter favorites including my fuzzy sweater and Chelsea boots, both of the pieces that I would never take off if I could.

A Day In The Park

Here we are with another outfit Of The Day and the first one of the new year!

I wanted to start out this new year with this particular look because it is hands down one of my favorites.

Since I live in Southern California, I am always surrounded by nature and I have the amazing opportunity to experience different forms of it. Some people love the beach, others love the dirt path and a few also love the wonderful green patches.

Naturally I am always attracted to water (Cancer horoscope- water sign. Woo!) , but I am a fan of everything green whether it be a big forest or the local park.

The best part of this particular park is that it has a great big view of the ocean (double the win).

Like always I will be linking the pieces below the pictures. Hope you guys like this look as much as I do!

Make sure to keep up to date on all my social media which I will also link below!

And here’s to the new year! Enjoy !

Happy New Years!

Happy New Years everyone!

I just wanted to send you all a quick thank you to all of you my readers for the wonderful year that was 2016.

Although as a society this year may not have been the best, for me on a personal note it was one of the best. From the creation of this blog back in April to the new look just last month, 2016 was a great one.

For the future I can’t wait to show you all of the new projects I have in store for you. You can expect a bigger renovation coming to this site and many many more posts.

As I settle in a routine as a blogger, I just wanted to also thank you all for the patience with this blog.

Specially, I want to thank all of my friends and family for their support with this endeavor.

On this note, I hope you all have a wonderful and prosperous year.

Much Love,

Leslie

Be sure to comment below some of the reasons you agree or disagree on why fashion matters.
