HAPPY 2016!

Good morning, Everyone! I would like to start by wishing you all a very happy 2016! May all your dreams and wishes come true and may this year bring you nothing but happiness and joy!

Secondly, do you guys have that one item you totally obsess about? I mean you can see it quite clearly in your mind, but just can't seem to find it no matter how hard you look? Well, for me, the search for a perfect chunky winter white cardigan has been a very long one!

I envisioned something super slouchy, preferably made from thick yarn for that really cozy look. Yet, no matter how many times I put it right at the top of my must-have list, I never found quite what I was looking for. Either too fitted or not chunky enough, I found a lot of really close ones, just never the absolutely right one:)

That is until now! Because I have finally found my unicorn!:) Even better than I could have imagined, it's everything I could have hoped for and more! Because? Duh! Side pockets! Of course my perfect chunky cardigan should have pockets:)

My obsession with this sweater is out of control, because I seriously cannot imagine wearing anything but! Of course I realize the minor complications which may arise from me wearing the same thing over and over again seeing how this is a fashion blog and you probably wouldn't want to see it 3 times a week. But... I'm obsessed!:) So perhaps you wouldn't mind seeing it every once in a while? Would twice a week be too much?:)

Now that Summer heat is behind us, it's finally starting to feel like fall in LA. Which is why I've been so preoccupied with decorating for Halloween. I suppose, I went a little overboard this year, cause the whole place is drowning in pumpkins, spiderwebs and skeletons. Actually scared myself a few times, I guess early mornings and spider webs on kitchen cabinets don't exactly mix well:) Which has been the greatest source of amusement for Emil, apparently my fear of spiders is highly entertaining. Maybe I'll put one of those extra large life-like tarantulas in his nightstand drawer, and see how entertained he'll be when he reaches for his phone in the morning! Oh yeah, payback is sweet!!! But I love Halloween and decorations are a big part of it for me. 

Anyway, I guess fall colors are starting to find their way into my wardrobe as well. Big fan of orange and leather jackets in general, I was delighted to find a great fitting one in such a cool color! Bright orange perforated leather perfection - what else can a girl ask for:) 

Keep on smiling,


Told you my favorite pair of leather leggings/pants travels everywhere with me. Last week they accompanied me to lunch in Beverly Hills (see HERE), few days ago we had an amazing adventure traveling to Big Sur. Wish I could describe every minute of the two amazing days I will most definitely remember for the rest of my life, but I feel like pictures will do a much better job talking for me. Now that I am back home, I can't wait to do it again! Actually, Emil and I are already planning our next visit, which hopefully will happen soon. Very, very soon....!

I often wonder why I don't like the rain... I suppose in some way, growing up in Latvia, where come September, it rained non-stop for weeks at a time, I've come to associate the rain with the beginning of autumn, and more specifically, the end of summer and sunshine and this is perhaps the most important one, the end of Summer holidays. Always temped to curl up in bed, rainy days made me feel blue, so I'd hide at home and venture out only if I absolutely had to!

Yet after spending the most wonderful weekend in rainy Napa Valley, I've come to realize that the rain isn't so bad at all when you find yourself in a wonderful place and in great company!:)

Though Liz, Sam, Emil and I ended up exploring a few different wineries that weekend, one stood out in particular. Charming rustic appeal, great wine and beautiful views, made Frog's Leap Winery one of our absolute favorites by far. So, if you happen to find yourself in Napa, I highly recommend you make a stop!
