Here’s another round of outfits from winter, with a couple more chances to wear boots! I spent the holidays in Orange County and Palm Springs with some family and friends, so this post features a couple outfits from this packing list. I had a really lovely New Year’s, but I am grateful to be home and in my own bed again, ready to start 2018 with conscious hope.
SOURCES // leather jacket – Deadwood, made from deadstock leather // striped tee – Everlane, made responsibly // wide leg jeans – J.Crew, secondhand (similar made responsibly) // loafers – Emerson Fry, old (similar) // sunnies – Ray-Ban // lipstick in Jam – Glossier // mini purse – Baggu, made in USA
This outfit is a good example of what happens when you dress in all neutrals–it’s really easy to throw things together. I pulled these blush loafers out this season along with my tan ones, which are on their last legs. It’s funny, I always preferred the tan ones before, but these have a sort of ballet vibe to them I really like this season.

I wore this for a casual and cozy Christmas Eve hanging out with in-laws. We spent time watching my little niece practice walking, exchanging gifts, eating way too much, and playing this ridiculous game. It was hilarious, but I would recommend it for close friends and not family due to a LOT of sexual content.

Please excuse my rough no-makeup face! We spent one night back at home after Christmas before heading out to Palm Springs, and we caught Thor: Ragnorok with our roomie–even driving all the way out to Burbank, which is a big deal for us! It was surprisingly delightful. The past month or so my husband, roomie, and I have been watching every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie (in order) as a weird sort of challenge. There are some that are okay (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), some that are SO bad (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and a few that are actually good (the Guardians movies). Ragnorok ended up being good! I was hopeful because I love Taika Waititi’s other work, especially Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Boy, but it exceded even my hopes. His Thor movie has the same humorous spirit and stylish action, using campy villains and buddy comedy tropes to great effect.

Palm Springs! We stayed a couple nights with our fun uncle in Palm Springs, and the weather was gorgeous. It’s finally cooled down enough in LA that I can appreciate an 80-degree day again. We spent the day with some yoga, dining, exploring the art museum, and just catching up!

This was at the Palm Springs Art Museum! There is a very cool kinetic art exhibit Kinesthesia, featuring this walk-through installation by Carlos Cruz-Diez called Chromosaturation–rooms colored by very bright colored lights. I had layered up because I’m a baby and as soon as the sun goes down I’m cold, but it was a very nice, efficient-packing situation where my base outfit still worked. After the museum we drove by Robolights, which was also a trip.
