Dusty Blue & White

"Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort." -Paul J. Meyer

ASOS man. Kills me every Winter with their amazing pieces. My pants and jacket are both from ASOS and there's nothing I love more than a good pair of skinny jeans. I love the fray hem and how they have slits here and there in the pants and not just at the knees. Dusty blue has become one of my top colors along with the blush pink that I featured a few posts back. Me and my best friend Shevah use to always thrift shop when we lived back in Florida together and I haven't really done any thrift shopping since then. While she was in town last month we made sure to hit a few spots and that's where I found this turtle neck knit top that I cut into a crop.

I see right through you

"You don't have anything to give that you don't have so you have to keep yourself full. That's your job. Your real work is to figure out where your power base is and to work on the alignment of your personality and gifts that you have to give and the real reason why you are here. I have so much to offer and so much to give and I'm not afraid to honor myself." -Oprah

Wearing all black everything is always an easy option for me. I love how with any all black look, you can take simple pieces in your closet and make them look innovative. For this outfit I took a black pencil and cut it into a mini skirt. Then I wore my bodysuit underneath it and then wore this Addition Elle belted sheer maxi skirt over it. I've been waiting for it to get a little colder to wear my sheer socks. I felt like this look was perfect for it.

On Sight

"If you start to think the problem is 'out there,' stop yourself. That thought is the problem." -Stephen Covey

I shot this skort and cape before I headed off last month to my meet and greet at Boohoo's pop up shop in NY. Right after I did the meet and greet, I flew to Manchester to meet with their team to shoot for their upcoming line in January. After shooting, I sat down with Boohoo's team of designers and we started working on my Spring/Summer 2015 capsule collection. I'm so excited for it. I've been wanting a capsule collection for as long as I can remember blogging and glad it's led to me teaming up with them. I fly back in late January to see the samples. We originally designed 40 pieces but will be narrowing them down to 20. Can't wait to show everyone when it's released in March! xx

Venus vs. Mars

“We do not see any borders from space. We just see a unique planet with a thin, fragile atmosphere, suspended in a vast and hostile darkness. From up here it is crystal clear that on Earth we are one humanity, we eventually all share the same fate.” — Alexander Gerst, Astronaut, NASA

A few days ago I had the honor of shooting with Celine from Slow Factory. Slow Factory is a boutique that creates silk scarves with images NASA's satellites took. They first caught my eye with the Gaza By Night "Peace" scarf which is a satellite shot of what Gaza looks like at night. Such a creative shop. My favorite I shot was the Mars scarves. I love what this entire brand is about. It's this entire concept of how we are all on this planet together and although we are all different, we really aren't.

They've given me a discount code for 30% off for all of you! Just type in "HolidaySecret"

Pastel Pinks

"Much of the stress that people feel doesn't come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they've started." David Allen

Ever since I've been working on my capsule collection, I've been making mood boards to re-inspire myself because I have so many ideas in my head. I'm all about pastels for the winter with really structured minimal pieces. I love the idea of layering different shades of pink and also a long pink trench coat. The two piece outfit set with the matching trench coat Kim Kardashian is wearing here is my favorite. I also had to throw in an amazing Elie Saab dress. The cut of it is so simple and modern. I just need Elie Saab in my life forever. I'm saying this extremely premature because I don't plan on getting married until my 30s but I guarantee I'm going to pay for him to make my wedding dress one day.
