And so it beings... I have officially started my holiday shopping! Now it's a race against time to get it all done by Christmas. Every year, there seems to be a theme with my gift-giving items, and this year it's warm and cozy. Due to the sudden drop in temperatures and how poorly my body is adjusting to the cold, I am naturally gravitating toward things that are soft, warm and cozy.
There are two things that I love to give: sweaters and beanies. They both are things that everyone loves--male or female, young or old--and one can never have too many of. I always find it hard to gift a fashionista with clothes, but sweaters are meant to be worn oversized and that eliminates any doubts about sizing. Same with beanies, especially when they are one-size-fits-all. Plus, they make great stocking stuffers.
Sears has all your gift-giving needs covered this holiday season without breaking the bank. My top picks include a cuffed knit beanie and cable-knit sweater, both for under $15.

As a native Angelino and living in the capital of the denim industry, it's only natural that I live & breathe denim (literally). I tend to be extremely picky about jeans and take denim shopping very seriously. My mission (and I do consider finding the perfect fitting pair of jeans a mission) and devotion to denim is the same as Hudson's. Hudson is rooted in the legacy of British cool and liberated by the free spirit of Los Angeles, which is right in line with my personal style. When asked, I best describe my own style as the 3 C's: casual, cool and chic.
When it comes to denim, I tend to stick with the basics. I take basic styles and incorporate them to fit not only my personal style, but my lifestyle as well. Most of my days are spent on-the-go and sitting in a lot of traffic so comfort is my main priority. The Krista Super Skinny Jeans from Hudson's 2015 Fall Denim line is the perfect go-to for an on-the-go day. The skinny, body-hugging fit keeps me feeling put together even if I feel disheveled on the inside. The soft, viscose-blend denim fabric has excellent stretch, yet wonderful recovery for an all-day lasting wear. #ForeverForward

'Tis the season to start holiday shopping! I take the art of gift giving rather seriously because I love showering my loved ones with gifts that I know they will be ecstatic about and cherish for years to come. I'll spend endless hours scouring the internet, making sure I've weighted all my options and have selected the perfect gift. I'll be the first to admit that holiday shopping also means shopping for myself. A lot of times, I'll be the guinea pig and test the products out myself and if I end up loving the item, chances are my friends and family will as well.
I have been carrying Fossil's new Emerson Satchel in red as my new fall bag and cannot say enough good things about it. The size and various compartments keep all my life-on-to-go essentials in an organized manner. The beautiful and vibrant hue adds a nice pop of color and matches my favorite scarf. Since I have been so pleased with my new handbag, I decided to check out what else Fossil had to offer. Here are my favorite gifts, for him & her.
SYDNEY CROSSBODY | CECILE MULTIFUNCTION SAND LEATHER WATCH | HAVEN BUCKET BAG | KNOT CUFF | SYDNEY ZIP PHONE WALLET | CHEETAH LARGE ZIP CLUTCH WRISTLET | SHIMMER HORN STUDS | BARREL STRETCH BRACELET | LAURI ROUND SUNGLASSES | ORIGINAL BOYFRIEND CHRONOGRAPH STAINLESS STEEL WATCH

History tends to repeat itself and so do fashion trends. The 70's are making a comeback this season... think flare leg jeans, floral prints and my favorite - military inspired pieces. I remember living in cargo pants and obsessing over camouflage prints, so I welcome its return with wide open arms!
Here's a little background on my style: androgyny plays a big role in my personal day-to-day style. I love wearing unisex pieces, styles inspired from menswear, and often shop in the men's section of my favorite stores. It only makes sense that I would love anything with a military vibe. My newest jeans from Hudson's 2015 Fall Denim line, the Lilly Mid Rise Ankle Skinny Jean in Combat Combo print, is the perfect pant for a military-chic look. I love Hudson's denim collection for so many reasons: their jeans are crafted (yes, crafted because they truly are a work of art) with superb quality and attention to detail, the silhouettes are timeless and classic, and more importantly, they fit my body in all the right places. Take yourself back to the 70's with the latest styles from Hudson, whether it's with a pair like mine, one of their flare legs, or skinny jeans. #ForeverForward
