Hey, Good morning!

What do you think about this jacket! Its a treasure right? It was given to me by a beautiful friend for my birthday. I will admit that it is not the easiest thing to wear especially in Irvine since the weather never drops. Today it actually sprinkled so I took advantage of the "lower" temperature. This wind breaker/rain jacket is so perfect though; its pretty long so when you zip it up it fits like a little black dress. The waist band also cinches to create a more structured look that allows you to flaunt your natural curves.
It also fits perfectly with my style; I don't have to surrender my comfort and its black. I subliminally always gravitate towards black even though I know that I have 5 black jackets, I will still buy another black one. 

This year, another color that has become a comfort hue has to be burgundy. Its something about that rich dark shade that allows me to pair it with blacks for an edgy look or with browns for a more bohemian vibe. I think that this color is here to stay because it can transition between seasons unlike other colors like sea-foam blue, or highlighter yellow (but thats just me and my personal feelings). 

Recently I have been struggling with my personal style. I feel that I am being influenced by main stream fashion. I don't think that this is a bad issue but when I see other bloggers I'm like "ohh yeah, that so her/his style". Maybe I haven't truly found my personal tastes or maybe I'm still in a transitional part of life, or maybe clothes are just being over done. But this is why I blog: to share what I'm liking at the moment so that I can see the evolution of my style throughout the years. 

Thanks for reading, 
- Esperanza
