Yesterday was my thirty-first birthday! Every year I look back at the previous 365 days and think about all the wonderful things that have happened. I reflect on many things during this day. For me, my birthday is a mixture of Thanksgiving and New Year's Resolutions. On the one hand I give thanks for all the good things in my life and for my loved ones. On the other hand, I make a list of the many things I can improve about myself. One of my favorite quotes is "always strive to be a better you".
One of the many things I'm thankful for is my dear readers so I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all who visit Memories of the Pacific every week. Thank you for every single comment, they mean a lot to me and always bring a smile to my face. I wish we could meet so I could thank you in person while having a warm cup of chocolate. Blogging is a wonderful way to meet people from all around the world which is so rewarding! For me the most beautiful friendships are those between people from different cultures, there's so much we can learn from each other.
Now it's time to move on and look forward to all the exciting things coming up. One of them is the Christmas holidays. They always make me feel so happy! The family time, the presents, the decorations, the lights, the warm drinks, the atmosphere... You breath joy everywhere. Because of that today I'm sharing with you an outfit for the holidays. You've already seen this pink faux suede dress here. I'm getting so much use out of it, I wear it all year long. When I bought it, I never thought a dress like this would become a wardrobe essential.
The coat is one of my newest acquisitions. It's soft as a teddy bear and really warm. It gets an extra point for being faux fur. I think something similar is going to happen with this piece as with the dress because I've realized I can wear it with everything. Just because it looks like fur it doesn't mean it's only supposed to be worn to formal events. I plan to wear it with everything from jeans to skirts.

Being style savvy as you are, I'm sure you are going to take advantage of Cyber Monday to get ready for the holidays. So here are a couple of round-ups to help you out.
