All you need for the upcoming holidays is a little LOVE! 🙂
Hehe I’m sure that’s something that we can all agree on, right?
I’ve been loving this LOVE jumper from Forever 21 so much (pun intended of course 😛 hahaha)!
While it’s definitely cooler in Los Angeles, we still get pretty warm afternoons, and on days like this, I tend to gravitate towards lighter knit jumpers with details (like these cut-out shoulders and sleeves) that not only stand out, but are also fun to wear at the same time.
I paired it simply with my new grey skinny pants, which are made of a stretchy and comfortable material. A big plus – they’re a lot warmer than jeans, so it’s definitely my go to bottoms for the colder days. To finish the whole ensemble and give this casual outfit a little more edge, I decided to wear my thigh-high suede boots. Not only are they super stylish, they’re also so comfy (even if you’re walking around all day), and they keep my legs super warm! 🙂
Though I purchased this sweater with cut-out shoulders and sleeves a while ago, I’ve been wearing it a lot on my off days when I grab a casual lunch with my girl friends because the soft material and large LOVE logo on the front just makes it stand out so much, especially with a universal message that’s appropriate for everything that’s happened as of lately.
Amidst all of the tragedy, I’m reminded that despite all of the terror and hate, we are still alive, and the only way to defeat all of these treacherous and heinous acts is through love. How people treat us reflects who they are, but how we react to them reflects who we are. So yes, we are allowed to feel angry, to feel hurt, to feel scared. But we have to remember that this is our opportunity to do good. To show that, despite everything, we are still capable of love and forgiveness.
On a lighter note, let’s all be grateful that we’re alive. All of these tragedies just proves how fragile all of our lives are, and we have to cherish each and every moment, as well as all of our friends, family, and loved ones.
