It's January and 70 degrees outside. What a tease.

Though I love winter (yes I do) the break has been nice. This month every year my focus shifts to spring pre-orders for clients. And guess who made my list?

Azzedine Alaia is one of the world's most respected fashion designers. Honest. Shy. Yet doesn't bow to the pressures or demanding timetables of the fashion industry.

The spring collection is full of sculptural silhouettes and meticulous craftmanship. And, oh the shoes!

If you didn't notice, the bomber made a big comeback this fall. And into spring it goes

While there are many to choose from, I am most excited about these. Valentino, Saint Laurent and Kenzo bring on the style personality with bright, cheery colors and prints, just in time for spring. These lightweight jackets amp up any outfit, from jeans to flirty skirts. And if you happen to prefer dark solids, they have those, too.

There has never been a year when I haven't wished you Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I missed every single one of those this time around and I feel horrible. Crazed and dazed I have been. Styling has been at an all-time high, the health component to my business continues to grow and add to that life in general — I got lost in it all. And I apologize.

I love heading into a fresh new year. 2017 is going to teach me a thing or two. Especially in time management. Making an impact, whatever the capacity, continues to be my focus. For my family. My friends. My clients. With my faith wrapped around them all.

As I forge ahead, I plan to take notes along the way to ensure I stay aligned with my purpose. It's that important to me. Not to bring on pressure. Just to hold myself accountable. In all areas of my life.

What has 2016 taught you? And what do you want to get out of 2017?

The last few months have been a whirlwind of styling. And in that time, I have come across some amazing pieces to help my clients step outside of the box and inject splashes of fun into their wardrobes.

Of course what we wear serves a purpose, a function. However, what we wear is also an extention of our personality. It's what we communicate to the world about us, a little bit at a time. Staying true to your individual style is important. But know, there is absolutely nothing wrong with adding a few surprises into the mix. The giddy factor is ever important.

This bold, color block coat in an argyle design does just that. MSGM got it right by providing both typical and atypical outerwear this season. Tailored in Italy from wool-blend felt, this cocooning style is finished with smooth satin lining that effortlessly slips over shirts, knitwear and dresses.

There is something about that lived-in look to a boot. Easy. Casual. No fuss.

This black suede and leather laceless desert boot from Marsèll is perfect for most of life's everyday occasions. Instantly recognizable by a use of washed leather finishes and fluid shapes, the Italian artisanal label is known for its nonchalant take on luxury. The shoes are carefully handcrafted with a worn-in look for a modern appeal.

A shoe that will take you far.
