One of my goals for 2013 is to enrich my brain more and I decided to do that by enrolling back into school. Not fulltime school or anything, just one class per semester. I am taking Photoshop and had my first class last night. It has been EIGHT years since I was in school. Although I was nervous it all came back to me when I was there. I always loved school and learning and it feels so good to be back and challenged in a way that I haven’t been in awhile. It put me in such a good mood that I plan on taking with me to the weekend. Here is my weekly Instagram roundup.
Loving my Michael Kors wallet wristlet and Clair Danes right now.

It is only suitable that today’s outfit features another fab Hearts product! This outfit is what I wore when Dapper Fellow and I took the ferry from Alameda to SF. It was a warm day, but with the breeze it was very chilly! Perfect for this awesome Bolivia Beanie! What I love about SF is how well they do layering. They really take it to a whole new level. How do you like to layer?

Today’s look is a classic black on black winter go-to for me if I am getting dressed up. I live in black blazers and this vintage one with the gold buttons has been such a practical, wearable piece. When wearing all one color I like the idea of mixing textures together. This will create more depth for your black on black look.
