The Last Minute Gift Guide: California Winters


Since I’ve moved to California from New York, I love the fact that I don’t have to deal with freezing temperatures anymore. Most importantly, I’m glad that I don’t have to clean snow off of my car every morning.

As a result of the move, my fall wardrobe has basically doubled because “winter” doesn’t exist here. That means I’m wearing a lot more leather jackets, sweaters, and of course boots!

Therefore, I partnered with Cat Footwear to style their Abe Canvas Boot as a part of my “Last Minute Gift Guide”. Because if you’re anything like me you always wait until the last minute to buy gifts for your family, friends, and maybe even yourself!


When it comes styling boots that are a little more rugged and work wear inspired, it’s best to just keep things simple and comfortable.

Since these boots are mostly brown with a hint of green in the canvas, it was easy to pair it with a similar brown leather jacket and a green henley to really make the boots stand out!.

Style Tip: When wearing boots, make sure that your jeans aren’t too tight because they will definitely make your feet look huge!

In other news, Chubby has grown a lot since the last time I’ve featured him (3 months ago to be exact), but in terms of his temperament…

He’s still full of energy and needy as ever!

I really can’t wait until this puppy stage is over…
