The holiday season is here to bring joy and happiness into our homes and I’m oh so ready for it. One of my favorite holiday traditions is spending the day with my husband and decorating our home. Every year I like to change up our decorations and the overall theme of our decor, but this year I decided to do a complete overhaul. I partnered with my ultimate home decor go-to,  Bed Bath & Beyond to create a cozy holiday home with their luxe range of home decor products from the UGG Home Collection. I settled on a redwood and snow color scheme and picked up everything from tree ornaments and garlands to throw pillows and blankets to make my vision of a cozy California Christmas come to life.

This year, we switched up our stocking, adding a pair of the Classic Cable Knit Christmas Stockings in redwood.  This generously sized stocking is trimmed in faux fur pom-poms, giving it just the right touch of cozy glam. High quality and priced right, this stocking makes for the perfect holiday gift for those people on your holiday gift list that are hard to buy for!

My favorite item from the UGG Home Collection is hands down the Harper Chunky Throw in snow, my favorite winter white. It is a heavy weight cable knit that is so chic and instantly adds decadence and warmth to any room. The Harper throw also makes a great gift! Here I paired it with the Bailey Button Oblong Throw Pillow, also in snow. This pillow is like your favorite sweater and it makes a wonderful winter accent on a sofa or bed.

One little tip that I’ve developed over the years is to stock up on extra ornaments. I use them as decor for the house, last minute gifts, or tie them to gift boxes to dress up my holiday wrapping.  I love the Classic Cable Knit Christmas Tree Ornaments in redwood and snow, they add just the right touch of cozy to our tree.  We also added a Hunter Plaid Christmas Tree Ornament and wove the Wren Holiday Garland through the tree, and the Classic Cable Knit Holiday Garland around the base for a luxurious, tiny tree skirt!

Of course no holiday home is complete without a matching outfit for my dogs. The UGG Home Collection has a selection of pet accessories, like this Cable Knit Scarf with Pom-Poms in redwood.  Check out the UGG cable knit sweaters, Sherpa pajamas and coats, they make perfect gifts for all the dog parents on your holiday list!

I’m really enjoying seeing the reemergence of leather this fall/winter season. Whether it’s a dress or a slick trench, leather feels grown up yet never stuffy. Here I’m layering an army green vegan leather dress over a classic striped turtleneck paired with my favorite failsafe pair of thigh high boots. This looks probably feels like a bit of a departure from my usual sartorial fair, but that’s what I’ve always loved about fashion and the art of personal style. You can wake up every day and be someone new. From dripping in pastels to strutting around in head to toe black, there is no shortage of ways to express yourself through style. You can reinvent and reimagine yourself whenever you want. This has become somewhat of a sticking point for me. As I navigate a new chapter in my life and career I can’t help but use my personal style as a jumping off point for outlining my future.

Currently loving luxurious jewel tones and metallics especially paired together. I’ve had the gold skirt featured in the first image for almost as long as I’ve had this blog. It’s a timeless classic that I don’t think I’ll ever let go of. In fact I love it so deeply that when I found this Vince version in copper I knew I had to have it. Give me a pleated midi skirt any day of the week but make it metallic and I’ll never take it off.

Currently stocking up on cozy knitwear even though Los Angeles is nowhere near cold enough to warrant anything resembling a sweater. Regardless of how hot it might be right  now (87 to be exact), eventually winter will be here and I’m actually looking forward to practicing the art of layering. Below I’ve rounded up an edit of my favorite sweaters. Enjoy and Happy Shopping.

P.S. Shopbop has also extended their SALE! Get to it!

After taking a break from posting I’m making my come back. This blog has been a part of my life for 10 years and has brought me so many amazing opportunities. I have forged friendships and connections,  traveled the the world, and have worked with amazing clients. My step back over the summer was needed to nourish myself and reexamine the next chapter of my life. I can’t say I’ve figured out very much, but I do have a renewed desire to create and share through this blog. Hopefully with more honesty and creativity.

Sam and I shot this editorial in Lake Como. We spotted this beautiful location from the water during a sunset boat ride on the lake.  As soon as I saw the gorgeous ruby red leaves winding up the ancient seawall, I had a vision that needed to come to life. There’s really no substitution for travel when I’m feeling stuck in a creative rut. We spent the next morning shooting this gorgeous Yumi Kim dress in Tremmezzo before driving off to Venice.
