Woven Heart

Cozy cruelty-free boho sweater by Woven Heart

My girls and I teamed up for a fun photoshoot this past Friday featuring compassionate sweaters by Woven Heart! I love how unique the patterns and prints are, they really liven up a winter wardrobe! We threw on the sweaters and combat boots for an evening hike.


Eclipse at Mount Helix

Cozy sunset

On Sunday night Thomas and I headed to Mount Helix to watch the supermoon lunar eclipse. We got there an hour and a half early to ensure a good spot. The eclipse was gorgeous and well worth the wait. I stayed cozy in a sweater and dress combo look while watching. It was the perfect night.


Sunrise Over The Bay

Sunrise Over The Bay by Vegan À La Mode

Sunday morning, Thomas and I arose at 5 AM to head to the bay to watch the sun rise. Watching the sunrise together was something I had been wanting to do for awhile. Ever since our early winter drives to Big Bear when I saw how gorgeous it was to watch the sky light up at dawn, I had been wanting to truly watch it and enjoy it. My friend Marin gave the suggestion of going to the bay to get a good view of the sun rising on the east. While it was a bit cloudier than anticipated, the view was still worth the early wake-up time.


Breezy Layers

So far, winter in San Diego has just been a cool breeze with lows of 50 degrees leaving me reaching for light sweaters. I purchased this Caslon Open Knit Sweater from Nordstrom last winter and it has been tucked away in my closet for a quite a while now. Its lack of warmth previously posed a challenge in the past but this season it couldn’t be more fitting for the weather. I decided to give it new life by layering a Free People Trapeze Slip Dress underneath it and topping it off with a simple gold necklace from Forever 21. A pair of James Jeans Twiggy Skinny Jeans and vegan faux-leather lace-up boots finished the look. I spotted these Mossimo Khalea Combat Boots at Target and was thrilled to see they are composed of 100% man made materials and they are incredibly similar to the Steve Madden Troopa Boots, which are not vegan-friendly. Finding cute, budget-friendly vegan boots can be challenging, but I’ve found that affordable stores like Target or even ModCloth tend to have quite a few cruelty-free options! These looked so much like genuine leather, I had to check the inner label twice to be sure they weren’t leather!
