Today's cozy outfit is exactly what I've been living in lately. My friend Tash recently launched a webshop, Seldom Seen, and I jumped at the chance to style my top picks alongside some of my favorite bloggers this week. Not only does Seldom Seen's aesthetic align with mine— everyday classics with an urban edge— they also happen to carry some amazing brands that I've been dying to get my hands on, from Janessa Leone to Loeffler Randall and Gabriela Artigas. I think I'd be pretty happy with a closet made up of only Seldom Seen pieces. Or maybe just this jacket.

Next up in the series is one my favorite bloggers, Rima from Fire on the Head

Christmas Wishlist


Keeping it short and sweet for this year's annual Christmas wishlist. I've noticed that items on my wishlist fall into the want-but-wouldn't-buy-myself category. Also noticed: can't justify splurging on a candle for myself (even though I love them), still majorly into anything marble (did you see the phone case David recently surprised me with?), and black Nikes are forever on my wishlist. In fact, I think this is the third wishlist they've made an appearance on— maybe that's a sign I should just them myself? What's on your wishlist?

Made For Walking

Being petite, I've always been hesitant when it comes to over-the-knee boots. I don't find them the most flattering for short legs, especially the more structured, leather versions, but I've always wanted a pair. This suede pair is soft, perfectly slouchy, and flat— perfect for all the walking I do. Can't wait to style these with jeans next!  

Also wanted to talk about my jewelry from jewelry subscription service Rocksbox. I'm always hesitant about styling subscription services since I don't think anyone knows my style better than myself, but I will admit they're great for expanding your palette and introducing you to new styles and designers. I was pleasantly surprised that they had nailed my taste on the head by the second box (you can see one of the necklaces I got in my first box here).
