I'm a little late to the puffy vest bandwagon. I always felt they were too bulky (or too expensive). But then I came across this one at Uniqlo. It's the perfect vest for me. It's super thin and lightweight which is perfect for California winters and the price was great. I actually got it on sale during a store opening so I got it for $39.90. And the fun thing is it folds up into a small pouch (which is included) so it's super easy to travel with! It also comes in a ton of colors. 

Have any of you been to Uniqlo? A bunch of stores just opened in my area. It's a great store to pick up basics - like wool and cashmere sweaters, silk tops, down jackets and more at a great price point. I'll probably be shopping there more often! 

In other news, I'm in Pennsylvania for the holidays. Hello winter! It's cold here! I think I've had enough and I'm ready to go back to California weather...haha.

Do you see it?? Rain! In California! I can't believe I actually captured it on film, it's so rare around here. It might look like I'm happy to be out in the rain, but I'm not. I actually hate the rain. I was kind of neutral about it until I moved to Ohio for two years. Since the sun never comes out in that state I got pretty depressed and decided I hated rain, snow and any other kind of precipitation. 

I had a reeaaallly hard time getting dressed today. I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to wear. So when in doubt - throw on a bunch of neutrals! And a great hat. I actually bought this hat last year and this is the first time I'm wearing it. I love the texture and the colorblocked neutrals but It just never got cold enough last year to bring out a hat. But I'm hoping this year will be different cuz I love this hat!

I don't have any Christmas parties to go to as usual this year so I try to come up with excuses to dress up when I can - like going to see the LA Phil on date night. That's a good enough excuse to wear a party skirt, right? It's always fun to hear what people think of your outfit when you are a little over dressed. One of the ushers told me I looked very classy. And as I was coming out of the bathroom one lady said to me, "Very dramatic". I'll take that as a compliment although I guess it could go either way. Maybe too much drama for the symphony? Haha...

I am so excited to be featuring a necklace from iSanctuary in today's outfit post. I first became aware of International Sanctuary at my church's annual Christmas market. I fell in love the with beautiful jewelry first and then I found out about the amazing organization behind the accessories. So when I was asked to feature their jewelry on this blog I jumped at the chance! 

iSanctuary empowers women who are survivors of modern-day slavery and sex trafficking. Through Purpose Jewelry, iSanctuary provides employment, job training, and paychecks to these survivors. 100% of the proceeds from Purpose Jewelry benefit iSanctuary and the survivors. iSanctuary works with women in Mumbai, India and Orange County, California and has helped over 300 women! iSanctuary also provides counseling, medical and dental care, education and scholarships to these survivors. 

I decided to style the Chevron necklace in silver. I love the simplicity of this necklace and how it will pretty much go with anything! I think it perfectly compliments this loose dot tank and drapey blazer that I'm wearing. 

Outfit Details: 
Blazer: H&M
Tank: Loft
Pants: Madewell (similar) (similar)
Bag: Madewell via eBay
Booties: Crown Vintage via DSW
Necklace: c/o iSanctuary

Final
Jivana Necklace, Crescent Necklace (in silver or brass). 
Each piece of jewelry is handmade and the tag is signed by the young woman who made it. 

Final2
I love the simplicity of the Infinity Bracelet and the Journey and Knot Rings. Each are available in silver or brass.

A piece of jewelry from iSanctuary would make an amazing gift for a friend or family member this holiday season. The last day of shipping for holiday orders is December 19th.

iSanctuary's goal for 2020 is to open ten sanctuaries all over the world. In order to do that they are looking to raise $100,000 by the end of this year! Please consider supporting this amazing organization by making a donation here!
