Hello everyone! Just a quick post showing an outfit that I am considering for some events for the holiday season.  Since I’m such a fan of rompers, I immediately fell in love with this lace one – and the color is such gorgeous! It’s both festive and somewhat casual so it can definitely take you from day to night.  I know that it’s not practical to wear for those who are experiencing extreme cold weather right now but since LA seems to be fighting winter, I guess I might as well take advantage of it!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Hello everyone! I am SO happy to be back after a three month hiatus! As you know from my last post, I was going through a super tough time with postpartum but thankfully I’ve been feeling much better.  Hopefully I’ll be able to share my story one day but for now, I’m just glad to be feeling somewhat myself again.  (For those of you that have experienced PPD, you know that it’s a HUGE deal to be feeling yourself again :) )

Anyhow, let’s talk FASHION!!  I could not be more excited about this post because FALL is here!! Fall is absolutely my favorite season of the year because I just LOVE LOVE LOVE layering.  I’ve always loved Fall colors, but the fact that I can finally wear my jackets and coats makes me so excited.  Although many people wouldn’t quite consider the weather in LA quite “Fall” like yet, we can’t deny that the nights are getting colder and for me that’s enough to throw on my favorite wrap/cape or jacket.

I could’t wait to throw on this wrap from Topshop because the colors are just so Fall-perfect and it’s such a warm, cozy and easy go-to piece.  I’ve been totally obsessed with the wrap/cape trend for awhile now so I’m just such a happy camper with my purchase of this wrap which just screams Fall!  Plus, it’s super easy to throw over my outfit when I’m out and about or use it as a blanket for the baby!

I hope you guys have a wonderful week and it feels SOOO good to be back!!

xo, Christine

Love and hope.  These two words have been my motto in life lately.  I’ve been struggling to write this post and wasn’t so sure I wanted to, but I know it’s only right to share with my readers a little bit of what I’ve been going through.  I thought that being a new mom was supposed to be the happiest time in my life (and don’t get me wrong – it still is) but I had NO idea how hard postpartum would hit me.  I actually had no prior knowledge of postpartum and went into my pregnancy completely unaware of the concept of postpartum anxiety/depression.  As I’m not quite ready to express all my feelings yet to the world – I do want my readers to know that I’m working on getting better.  Please be patient with me while I try to get out of this funk – I definitely haven’t been feeling myself lately and I just know that if I want to get better – I need to work on myself first above all else.  I’m so blessed to have an amazingly supportive hubby and sweet baby girl who is happy and healthy and it’s been extremely emotional for me to go through PPD because simply put- I just never thought it would happen to me.

Thanks so much for listening and if any of you have any advice for me, I’d love to hear it.

xo, Christine
