Happy New Year 2016 everyone!  I hope that you had a wonderful time celebrating with your loved ones! As for me, I had an amazing time with my family back in Southern California and made the most of the time that we all spent together.  The time spent at my parents home, going back to all my favorite restaurants and visiting Los Angeles, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, and Long Beach were highlights of this trip (including experiencing an unexpected 4.3 earthquake!) If you follow me on Instagram (@AugustRunway), I will be sharing more pictures from this time.

On New Year’s Day, we decided to play tourists in our own city and I was back at “work” again in planning out our photoshoots and location. My goal is to inspire you with fashion, photography and architecture all the while sharing with you personal stories behind the photo shoots and sharing with you some fashion and styling tips! More of that to come as well as a Travel and Beauty section to this blog!

For this look, since it was New Year’s Day, I wanted my look to be festive, fun, stylish and with a couture feel.  When I saw this dress, I knew that it marked off all the things that I was looking for and more! And, for location, I knew it had to the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall. The day was slightly chilly, but it was so inspiring to be there and start the New Year doing what I love and sharing that with all of you.

I hope that you have enjoyed this look and photos!

Love and Peace,

Alba
