There's nothing like a bright & sunny day. It's even better when it's supposed to be winter. The key is to find balance. It may be perfectly nice when you're in the heat of the sun but once you step in the shade you're in for a chilly surprise. That's why it's always ideal to layer up, which is something I covered in what to wear on a California winter's day.

I found that lately I'm not as comfortable wearing jeans & pants. Maybe I need to find the perfect pair? Maybe I need to lay off the carbs? My current trend of choice is tights &/or leggings with shorts. It's warm. It's cozy. It's perfect to keep goosebumps at bay. Who needs those anyway?

I'd been avoiding most jewelry as of late due to some sort of weird allergic reaction I had to wearing cheap costume jewelry. I'm excited to be back in the accessorizing game. My rings read: Carmen & Fred. I am Carmen & my boyfriend is Fred. I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned his name, but now there's no going back. :p

There's something so thrilling about switching up your routine. I rarely do anything with my hair, so even a small clip makes me feel like a new person. Wearing old jewelry that's been lying around for years feels like I bought something fresh. It's basically a good reminder to try something different. Do you feel the same way? What little changes do you make to your daily routine? What do you think of this outfit? :]
