This burgundy leather jacket is a total fall must have and such a steal at $95! I threw it on over a classic v-neck tee and grey skinny jeans. This t-shirt comes in every single color imaginable and these jeans are only $54. I wore this outfit to my mom’s birthday dinner at Estate in Santa Monica. If you live in LA or are planning to visit, you need to add Estate to your restaurant list. The atmosphere was awesome and our food was so good. Order the Cheap Date, tuna crispy wonton tacos and chocolate soufflĂ©.

I loved sharing the photos from Brooke du jour’s birthday picnic in the park last week! To continue the celebration, I’ve rounded up my favorite posts from the last year. Which one is your favorite? Over the last year, I've learned photography is everything, you can never own too many stripes and mixing food and fashion makes everything sweeter. Thank you for reading!

I also owe another huge thank you to my amazing photographer, Stephanie. She’s an incredibly talented photographer, a total SEO ninja and the sweetest friend.

Cheers to the next 3 years! Let’s do it!
