SoCal Winter





H&M blazer (old) and fur stole, Club Monaco top (old), J.Crew belt and jeans, Tory Burch flats, Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 bag, Michael Kors watch, Bracelets: J.Crew, Jewelmint, Nadri, F21, Nails: Essie Borrowed & Blue and Mint Candy Apple

Before heading to New Jersey for Christmas, I panicked about not being warm enough so I picked up this faux fur stole at H&M. I loved not only the price ($17.95!) but also the fact that it can be layered over almost anything – in 20 or 60 degree weather. It remained glued to the collar of my wool coat to keep me cozy on the east coast, and now I’m loving it over SoCal winter friendly outfits, like this pastel ensemble which features my favorite blush blazer plucked straight from my spring wardrobe. As you know, I’m usually more of a dark neutrals girl but it sure is nice to soften things up a bit every now and then.

  13. This is beautiful – and I am so jealous of the weather – it is freezing in Paris right now!! As a California girl, I don’t really know what to do in this weather besides put my ski gear on, and that would not go over well with the fashionable Parisians ;)
