Baby It's (Kinda) Cold Outside

Sorry for my absence! The royal household was experiencing some minor technical difficulties, but everything is OK now.


Anyway! Onto more important things. Cold weather has FINALLY come to Los Angeles! For months I have been envious of everyone on the East Coast, bundling up in cute jackets and scarves and boots, while I continued to wear sundresses and sandals to work every day and tanks and jean shorts on weekends.


But no longer! Temperatures have finally dropped in LA – it even rained over the weekend. Yesterday I wore a scarf, tights, AND a leather jacket :) hooray!


In honor of the weather (and in preparation for my upcoming trip to New York in a couple weeks – more on that later!), here are some cold-weather choices that I have my eye on…


sweaters


Sweaters - just looking at these is making me want to put one on... instant coziness! Patterned, plaid, striped, solid... I can’t get enough.

L to R: J.Crew, Sonia Rykiel, Wildfox Couture, Zara


vests


Vests - I’m loving fur vests,

both for the glamorous look they add as well as for warmth!

L to R: Aqua, DKNY, Hawke & Co


coats


Coats - specifically, TOGGLE coats.

I love the classy yet sporty vibe toggles add to a winter coat!

L to R: Burberry, Guess, Marc New York, Calvin Klein


SCARF


Scarves - the perfect finishing touch! Throw one one to spice up any outfit.

Clockwise from top left: DVF, Marc Jacobs, David & Young,

Alexander McQueen, Helmut Lang, Tolani


What do you think? Any of these look warm enough for wherever you live? What are you currently bundling up in?


(Fingers crossed the cold weather stays long enough for me to actually buy and wear one of these cute things!)
