Holiday in the Mouse’s House

The mouse told a holiday tale, but the fox had eaten so much, he fell asleep. The owl and the otter stayed up late, waiting anxiously for Christmas morning.

I’m thinking of creating a comic strip or illustration series for my blog. Please like the post if you like this idea.

Love you all!

Sending you lots of holiday cheer.

Merry (post) Christmas & Happy New Year!

I’m hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas/holiday with your loved ones and families, as I sit here trying to be thankful for everything I have, despite my not-so-picture-perfect Christmas. I’m still here though, and as a grown up, I should be able to handle grown up setbacks. We spent Christmas Eve & some of Christmas fixing my ever-broken down car, but at least I got to spend it with someone I care about. Not everyone gets to. It’s about the little things right?

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with embellished sweaters, like this one by Dorothy and Perkins (dorothyperkins.com);

There’s something about winter that makes it okay to add a little more girly extras. I love it, and I love mixing mrnswear classics and basics with feminine touches.

Have a beautiful day!

In My Mind I’m Walking in a Winter Wonderland

I can’t walk in a winter wonderland, ao I drew one. Visiting Switzerland, and seeing snow period are definitely on my bucket list. I’m pretty sure my weak Californian bones will be shivering in my boots, but that’s okay. I think sledding and cute log cabins will be worth it. It’s only raining and 52Β° here in Burbank, and I need 5 layers. 😊 

There’s something special about curling up near the fireplace with a blanket, a book, and a cup of cocoa. 

Right now I’m inspired by corduroy dresses, layers, turtlenecks under dresses, and Christmas Eve Eve. πŸ¬πŸ‘’β˜•πŸŽ„

Christmas RedΒ 

It’s nice sometimes to sit down with a cup of coffee or holiday tea (I’m loving Trader Joe’s Wintry Blend coffee) and remember Christmases past, and furthermore, why we celebarate Christmas. I don’t know if you even celebrate Christmas, but even if you don’t, I think cheer and good will is something we could all use a little more of. I made this illustration with these thoughts in mind.

Personally, I do believe in God and I think life is too much of a miracle to deny that God exists. I’m not here to preach though, and this blog is about fashion. However, I think its it’s important to keep the big picture in mind. 

I’ve been loving peter pan collared dresses for a while and I’m fawning over rich jewel tones like ruby for Christmas, especially paired with neutrals. There’s no color like red for filling the soul with vibrancy and warmth. I’ve been wearing it on repeat this holiday season. What’s your favorite color right now?
