Happy Holidays! It’s crazy to think that the holidays are here and a new year is upon us.  Last weekend, I threw a holiday gathering with friends.  I find that serving food in individual portions or “hors d’oeuvres” style not only makes presentation more pleasing to the eye, but also is easier for your guests.  For our holiday gathering, I served mini burgers from The Counter, carne asada tacos, mac n cheese cups (recipe here), fried rice in individual take-out boxes, and some appetizers including smoked salmon with cream cheese and caviar.  I made blue berry pip pops (recipe here) which also made for a good party favor. Aside from all the food, there were plenty of cider, wine, and champagne as well.

I’m constantly running around the kitchen and living room prepping for the gathering so I had to wear something comfortable…and not white since I’ve been cooking. As always, my trusty F21 leather shorts proved to be one of the best purchases ever.  Pairing with it, a renzo-kai top, CC Sky giant bracelet, and Veda leather jacket.  (I’m really into leather lately.)

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your loved one.  Thank you so much for following along! xo, becks

Winter in Los Angeles never gets too cold.  Fortunately, I can get away with wearing shorts or skirts while out.

This J. Crew chambray shirt is currently my favorite.  The fabric is soft and the fit is perfect. I love wearing it beneath a sweater, or even more with leather shorts or skirt along with tights and boots. It works with just about anything, and even festive when paired with a sequin skirt.

Well, just like that Thanksgiving came and gone and now Christmas and New Years are upon us.  With the holidays approaching, December is surely a busy month.  I am planning a holiday gathering for my friends so for the past few weeks I’ve been researching recipes, decorating, and drawing inspirations.  I can’t wait to share in upcoming posts!

Wearing: J. Crew sweater, Club Monaco pants, J. Crew necklace, YSL bag.
