I don't want to make y'all feel bad and rub in the fact that I'm basking in the sun in Hawaii, so instead I thought I would quickly upload a few of my favorite images that I've gathered throughout the holiday season!

If you ask my co-workers they will tell you that I wear fur (not disclosing if it's real or fake) three times a week.....I however cannot will not confirm or deny this! Fur is charming, elegant, and makes any outfit look like a million bucks. Plus there is no greater feeling than sitting at my desk wrapped in fur and feeling all cozy. I'm fairly certain that my favorite days of the week are when I'm doused in it.....I mean hello Rachel Zoe.....I can be like you too!

"It's just little stories like this one that remind me--my God is for me. My God waits with me. I don't "wait for" God. He is mine already. He knows it hurts a little bit for a human heart to yearn, suffer, strain for something. He knows that. So for a cure, He steps in while we wait. To hang out with me and remind me my God is the God who provides. That He is at my right hand."

2. The RUNNER UP - Polished Platinum Dress - This dress is perfection and would look amazing on everyone. Don't you think it would make a cute holiday wedding bridesmaid dress?
4. Veiled Adler Dress - This crochet/lace look is so elegant! Dress it up with some gold Kate Spade heels or pair it with a pair of Tory flats. Either way.....it's wonderful!
5. Dulcie Dress - Pair this with a pair of black tights and you have a simple but classic holiday look!

So at 8am the morning after Thanksgiving we headed to Corona del Mar beach to meet up with Brynn. It could not have been more beautiful.....quite possibly the perfect day for a photo session! Simple disclaimer before you get a sneak peek at some of the photos. My dad was NOT a fan of the purple - he referred to us as the Purple People Eaters. I for one thought the purple was genius (but I am of course the one who coordinated the colors)!
Check out more of Brynn's talented work here!
And finally.....for all you locals.....don't forget about the boat parade which starts next Wednesday, 12/14! That my friends concludes this back to blogging post, but I promise that moving forward will be less rambling and more interesting. For now I leave you with this.....

Writing on this blog again brings on a similar feeling to being a stranger in my own house. It feels cold, empty, abandoned, and very unforgiving. While I intend to keep this blog live (for a future date when I have more time to sit down and write)…….I have actually started a new blog in the meantime. This new blog of mine has taken on more of a mood board feeling. It’s a place for me to post pictures (only pictures) of things that inspire, motivate, and intrigue me!
On Marine&Lilly you will find everything from beautiful décor, breath-taking views, fabulous apparel, stunning models, gorgeous hair, silly quotes, outfit ideas, and things that in general make me smile. Everything on here is a culmination of who I am and where I would focus all my time and energy…..that is, if I didn’t have to be a contributing member of society who works a gazillion hours a week!
I have already preloaded this blog with TONS of images to keep you entertained as I continue to post more each hour! So….sit back….relax…..and enjoy a look into what makes me tick!

I really hope to make more time for blogging in the next couple of weeks. Although things are about to pick up big time at work (FDA label update) I find that I blog more when I am crazy busy. Perhaps because this blog gives me a create outlet in times of chaos!
Anyways, I miss you all and hope that you are having both a wonderful National Day of Prayer and Cinqo de Mayo! And Brynn, if you are reading this - I think you should get your hands on an adorable bright bug like this one. I saw this picture and immediately thought of you and your incredible photography!

Anyways, back to my closet. for the most part my closet is very orderly. However, I would really like to take some time to uniform all my hangers and perfect the overall neatness of the space. Therefore, this weekend I am buying the Real Simple Slimline Hangers and going to work. I am hoping that these hangers will provide a little extra space since right now I can barely squeeze any additional hangers in my closet. Plus, this should give me a chance to get rid of even more clothes which I am in desperate need of doing!
Stay tuned for before and after pictures, but in the meantime check out these super simple sleek closets!

A few years back I made a New Year's Resolution to send a letter a week to a friend or family member. This was an incredible goal and carried on for about 2 years. While I had a little bit of a slow period I am now back in action with my letters.
As part of this I am always on the hunt for cute cards and stationary. I found this adorable shop on Etsy called Green Grass Press and immediately ordered a bunch of cards. Below are some of my favorites which I now own and which some of you may find in your mailbox soon!
P.S. - my pushpins still have not arrived and it's making me a little antsy! stay tuned for an update on their arrival!
