It is officially the holiday season! I have spent the weekend shopping my heart out, setting up for Christmas and packing for PARIS. It's about the be the best month of my life you guys. I am wrapping up my LAST fall semester of school. Which is the most relieving feeling, but also the most terrifying. I have one more semester until I graduate and am officially off into the real world and in charge of finding a grown up job for myself. Holy moly, I can't breathe.

Anyways, in honor of the craziest and best shopping weekend of the year (it's a life style people), I thought I would share one of my favorite cute shops. There are so many incredible people and boss babes out there that have a dream and go after it. In this day and age, there are so many E commerce and online businesses popping up and it is kind of amazing how possible it is to create an empire for yourself these days. It's really so inspiring to know that just about anyone can do it with the help of lots of hard work. Since yesterday was Small Business Saturday, I wanted to highlight People of Leisure.

People of Leisure is a purveyor of responsibly made garments that are ethically sourced and manufactured in Los Angeles. They are change-makers in the world of design, filled with dreamy imagination and wild ambition. They care about people, place, and practicality, which is why they create clothes with careful attention to shape, softness, and sustainability so you can live consciously.

Each piece they produce is made for the busy modern woman who believes in curating the items that hang in her closet. Inspired by a global wanderlust and simple nomadic styles, their aesthetic is minimalist and practical with a flair for unique fabrics. From casual loungewear to polished party-ready looks, they aim to offer a full range of style staples for the modern fashion superwoman.

Are you kidding me? There are too many inspiring women out there I just can't even contain my excitement. So while you're doing your holiday shopping this year, remember that every time you purchase from a small business an actual person does a happy dance. Support small this holiday season and continue to join me in cheering on the girl bosses of the world.

Happy holidays boys and girls! I'll be heading to Paris in just 2 weeks, can't wait to take you along on my trip. Stay tuned for content straight from the City of Lights.
