WEDNESDAY. What better way to spend a sunny, winter day than in multiple layers and a bottomless mimosa brunch with an insulated view of the cold, said-sunny outdoors? Do tell. These trusty $3 jeans I got eons ago...and accidentally customized with one part alcohol, two parts dog-wrestling... are still my go to casual jean. Worn this day layered under shades of grey and an old blanket I got in India turned car coat by a talented friend who does such things just for fun... Damn crafty people.

FRIDAY. Well, the title felt weird to type... 2016... Funny stuff, time. I got to spend the last week of 2015 in L.A., visiting old friends, enjoying their so-called "winter" weather with not much else than a thinly lined coat. And after last night's shenanigans, nothing really represents how I'd like to dress today outside a loose, men's t-shirt, stretchy pants, and flats. Going to really try to play up my creative layering game this year.

Your goals?

SUNDAY. Where before I was always avoiding long garb -- in all my 5'4" goodness -- I now have a slightly more open mind for them. Following layering geniuses using monochromatic palettes and skinny, tapered pants with such tunics, I adopted this creme light knit piece, courtesy of YOINS. With its tagless make, I can wear this baby v-necked or boat-necked (read: occasionally wear backwards). Also, perfect for lounging with a tumbler of woman's best friend. But I thought shoes were a woman's best friend. Hahahaha. *sip* Ha.

MOODBOARD N°2



MONDAY. You stateside readers have about one more week for my posts to be confusingly off date... assuming I get another post in by then. Guam's motto: "Where America's day begins" aka we forever in the future, Bs. The point being, it's Monday and its a moodboard one... 
Peace, art, and comfort.

IYA.


THURSDAY. Something so clean (and toasty) about doubling up on torso-heating wool by belting your simplest, button-less coat with a thick, same colored...belt. Plus the casual sleeve-scrunch was always a more comfortable situation for my arm cloths, personally. And just for the sake of having a portal to sexy coats, here. For the Northern Hemisphere dwelling minimalist on your Christmas list.
