Simmering Orange

Vegan Leather Jacket | Forever XXI Shirt | Coach Purse | Bakers Scarf (old) | INC Boots 

Absolutely obsessed this leather jacket I purchased recently! 
I have been wearing it so often due to the chilly weather lately. 
Honestly, I'm kinda ready to shift to the warm beachy days California is known for. 
I miss all my dresses and skirts and obviously having a nice tan!

Happy Thursday!

Liebster Award

Who doesn't love awards right? Well, one of my fellow bloggers from has nominated me for the Liebster Award. Thank you so much Patty! You made my day and I'm so happy to hear you enjoy my blog! 

What’s a Liebster Award you ask? Liebster is a German word meaning dearest, and the award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers who deserve some recognition and support to keep on blogging. The tradition is to answer the 11 questions from the person who has nominated you and then nominate promising bloggers and tag them in your post. Also you will write 11 questions for them to answer.

Here are the rules should you choose to accept:
1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog
2. Link back to the blogger who awarded you
3. Copy & Paste the award to your blog
4. Nominate 5 blogs that you enjoy to receive the award who have less than 200 followers
5. Inform them of their nomination by leaving a comment on their blog

My answers to the Questions:
  1. What is your nickname? Many people just call me Ale.
  2. What inspired you to start your own blog? The opportunity to share with others my passion for fashion. There is something amazing about using your style as a medium to share your personality and your mood with others. I hope to inspire people to think about fashion in different ways and appreciate how much people "tell", if you will, with just their personal style and self-expression.
  3. What do you think about the new bloggers? I believe every blogger has the opportunity to be successful. Personal style doesn't abide to specific rules. If it did, there would be no street fashion, fashion is a form of self-expression and the opportunity to share your view on it. All bloggers have something special to share and from my own experience, I can tell you that support from your readers is the ultimate gratification.
  4. What is the thing that you never do in you blog? I never write about politics, religion, or other controversial topics.
  5. Do you have your own camera? I do have my own camera and I have noticed that there truly is a big difference in shooting Outfit Of The Day photos with an SRL in comparison to a regular digital camera. If you plan to become a professional fashion blogger it is smart to invest in a good quality camera. At the end of the day, who would complain about tons of photos being taken and memories been shared? Cameras are the best way to keep and remember many of our special moments in life.  
  6. Where is your favorite place for taking your pics? I like to switch the location I decide to take my look of the day photos. I usually pick a place that inspires me to dress that particular way.
  7. Do you feel like a blessed girl? I have been so incredibly blessed in my life and even though sometimes I may forget the blessings I've been given, I try to cherish them as much as possible. Realizing the great things you have going for you makes life so much easier at the end of any day, it keeps you going forward!
  8. What is you favorite desert? I rarely crave desserts, but when I do I go for something very chocolatey or a frozen pie.
  9. What is your favorite magazine? Favorite magazine is Vogue, I love their fashion spreads!
  10. What is your favorite store? Favorite store would be Zara or Topshop. If I was able to purchase everything from their stores there's is no doubt I would!

I'm nominating:
Blush and Bangs: 
A girl you know:
Cut and Taylored
Sincerely, Truly Scrumptious
Up Town Girl  

My questions for you:
  1. Do you have any hobbies other than blogging?
  2. What’s something on your Bucket List?
  3. What color scheme do you usually use when styling your looks?
  4. What is a vacation destination that you would like to travel to?
  5. Weekend: Stay at home or go out?
  6. Favorite fashion designer?
  7. Favorite thing about Blogging?
  8. Favorite blog posts to write about (trends, look of the day, DIY)?

Warm and Beautiful

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I've been out of the loop lately but I caught whatever it is that is going around and was feeling under the weather for a couple of days. I'm now back and weirdly enough Southern California weather has been all over the place. The fall weather I just wrote about seems like it was just a tease. This week has been very hot which helps with my recovery but I'm ready for the cold to creep in.

This is an outfit I wore the other day while it was sunny and warm. I'm wearing a new denim dress I purchased at this boutique while visiting San Diego...there is just something I find so fascinating about cut-outs on shirts/dresses. Also, I saw the chance to wear the new apple green necklace I purchased recently; I had been having some trouble matching it with my latest outfits.

Hope you are all having an amazing week so far!
