Have you ever seen a piece of clothing that you know is meant to be yours but you're kind of a cheapskate and you don't want to spend full price even though it's, like, BEAUTIFUL?! Well, you're seeing two of those pieces RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW in this blog post. This Tory Burch jacket and this Ulla Johnson jumpsuit took up spots one and two on my wishlist last winter. I wanted them so badly that I kept open tabs on my phone and on my laptop so that I could obsessively hit refresh every single day until they went on sale. Let's just say, I had to wait for a long time (in reality it was like two months, but in blogger world that is eternity) but once they finally went on sale, I screamed with excitement and hit purchase right away.

This is the kind of outfit that you can find me wearing almost daily. In the winter, I basically wear a black turtleneck everyday because I tend to run pretty cold. Also, for style reasons alone, a black turtleneck is one of the chicest and EASIEST things you can wear because it goes with everything and it always seems to elevate any outfit. While we're talking about black turtlenecks, I also want to give a shout out to these incredible Reformation jeans that I have been wearing almost daily since I bought them back in December. I even bought two more pairs because the fit is SO good that I didn't want to risk not having them. Black jeans, black turtleneck, a plaid blazer and a statement boot is really the type of outfit I want to wear every day. Not only does it help me feel put together, but it makes me feel chic AF and I'm okay with that.

When I first entered the blogging world four and a half years ago, I really didn't see myself connecting with a lot of women. I place a lot of the blame on myself being a total homebody and introvert (yes, I am super shy when I don't know people!). I found myself not going to events because I was afraid I wouldn't know anyone so I just stayed home and missed out on great opportunities. As an adult, I also found it very hard to create genuine friendships with other women because I have pretty high standards for those I choose to spend my time with. When I don't feel comfortable with someone, I often feel a great deal of pressure to make that person like me (I am a total people pleaser by nature) even if I don't see us becoming friends. I know, it's really weird, but that's just who I am and I've come to accept it. I choose my friends very carefully and I can honestly say that blogging has been the best way for me to make some of the best friendships that I have ever had.

Sarah (check out her blog here!) and I have been friends for almost two years now. As I wrote that, I thought, "wow, has it really been almost two years already?" because I honestly cannot imagine my life without her in it. When Sarah and her husband Robbie moved to San Francisco, I remember meeting her for the first time at my other good friend's (Veronica!) event and I felt like we hit it off right away. She was kind, funny, and had the most contagious laugh that I just had this feeling that we were going to be friends. We had so much in common and from that day on, we have been the closest of friends. Even our husbands are now friends and we try to hang out with them as much as possible.
