My Intentions For 2016 & This School Girl Look

school 5

Throw on a mini skirt and a pair of high boots because… we’ve just completed the first full work week of 2016! I never did a post on my resolutions for this year for several reasons. First, I don’t like to call them resolutions – instead, I prefer to call them intentions. Resolutions implies that you and I have problems we need to fix. Whereas, intentions set a vibe for the year.

I went to San Francisco several times along with New York and Palm Springs. I visited New Orleans for the first time, which was a real treat for me.

There is something about a white shoe that tickles my fancy, and I love that these have a cream / gray snakeskin print so they won’t get dirty as quickly as my other white shoes. read more
