The Holidaze with H&M #sponsored

I had so much fun making this video featuring some holiday outerwear styles with H&M!

The coat in the video is sold out!
The silver puffer can be found here: H&M Padded Jacket in Silver
The purple dress can be found here (it's on sale!): H&M Purple draped dress

Add some color pops to your wardrobe this winter. As much as I've been slowing down on purchasing fast fashion items, I know not everyone (including myself) has the budget to stay stylish by purchasing from designers alone. Let's face it, as much as I try to stay eco-friendly and also cognizant of my consumer behaviors - there is a balance. While vintage shopping alone takes skill and craft, none of which I have, I sneak in a few fast fashion items every season or so. I do not feel guilty about this. This winter is all about color for me - the louder the better. Blame it on the "athleisure" or streetwear culture that's taking over our IG feeds if you will or  maybe it might be my slight obsession with 90s fashion these past months that have drawn my taste towards a broader color palette. Ultra-violet is the new millenial pink, I couldn't help but gravitate towards this body-con, high slit, turtle neck number by H&M. Paired with an reflective metallic puffer coat (which I will only need for two months, because that's what we call a Cali winter).

Side note: That also has translated to my instagram feed now. I know a lot of bloggers tend to go for a muted tone for high fashion, but life is full of so many beautiful colors. My artistic direction with my feed has never been cohesive (something I've found reflects my unpredictable and constantly changing moods and personalities, or maybe inability to commit to one, who knows?) but I think I've finally found a theme I can see myself going forward with for a long time. I've begun to find that when working with brands, this cohesive nature is important because brands will know what to expect when it comes to aesthetics for paid sponsorships. As much as I refused to corner myself with one color scheme or filter, I find it's actually helped my blogging career to stick to one. I can't say the same with style though, as my style will be forever evolving. As one should.
