Consciously

Jacket: H&M Conscious Collection (recent but similar here), Polka dot t-shirt: Gap, Jeans: Forever 21, Booties: Asos (similar), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, bing bang earrings, Michael Kors watch, Garnett Jewelry trio bracelets x Of A Kind, Gorjana initial charm bracelet, random bracelet while shopping at Abbot Kinney, Rebecca Minkoff MAC, vintage/Catbird rings and bombom dainty ring (c/o)  

Hi there! Well, as you may have noticed, I took an (un)expected break from blogging. It was one of those moments where I just had to take (self-imposed) pressure off of myself and relax. I took moments to look at the blogs I follow but for pure enjoyment. I have been running a bit hard lately with work and personal commitments so the tech break was much needed! Thanks for being patient with me!

I'm happy to be back to blogging. It's something I truly enjoy and I value the time you take to stop by and say something. Despite my tech break, I did steal moments on Instagram (that is just too addictive). I also managed to sneak in some shopping, and this H&M jacket was one of my recent acquisitions. It's such a simple throw-on piece that probably looks like a million other things I own but who can say no to bedazzled embellishment and army green?


How have you been?!

  2. Everyone needs a break now and then!! It's important to allow us to feel inspired and to destress!
    I love this look, the polka dot tee is perfect with this military blinged out jacket.
