Shorts in Winter; Life on the West Coast

Christmas cannot be in five days? ...Can it? Where has this entire year gone?

As the golden hues of Autumn transform into the dark, dreary days of Winter, I could not be more ready to give my mind a vacation. A whole week free from studying, exams, work and all of the other pressures that come along with being 22.

My DIY inspiration list is growing at an exponential rate and I'm beyond ready to spend some time sipping tea, listening to music and desiging and creating some of the DIY fashion projects that I've been dreaming about for ages.

I wore this simple outfit to start my Christmas shopping. I brought my trusty DIY clutch I made a few weeks prior and I love the little bit of shimmer it adds to the ensemble. If you missed the DIY clutch tutorial, check it out here!
