Winter Is A-Coming.

November 11, 2010

It’s that time a year when you wake up in the morning and think, “what’s the weather going to be like?” Especially LA weather can be so unpredictable — 80 degrees one day then 50 degrees the next. Which is why I always keep a jacket on hand when I go to work. You never know what the office weather will be. And let’s be clear — I don’t take a JACKET… just a light coat that will keep me warm, yet not be too bulky or make everyone think I’m about to leave for the day. If you don’t have a work-type jacket, don’t fret. Head to J-Crew! Here are some of my favs:

1. Tweed Harriet Blazer: Sophisticated, put-together and can be work to work or even for a night on the town. Need I say more?

2. Double-drape Justine Jacket: This one is a little less work-looking and more trendy. Chic and very flattering due to the cut, this coat is a winner at work or anywhere you get cold!

3. Merino Necklace Cardigan: For all of you who just want to go cas’ and cashmere… then this one’s for you. Simple and super comfy, with just a touch of sass. Perfect for work and even dinner with your parents… or dinner with a date!

Style Icon: Audrina Patridge and Lauren Conrad

Though I do admit that Los Angeles has some of the best weather in the world, I also recognize that it does get chilly. No, I’m not talking about 40 degrees (are you kidding??!). I’m talking about 60s and 70s. That’s cold for me. Which is why I love how Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge dress. Boots are stylish, simple, comfortable and most of all warm. It provides a put together look and I love how they both wear their skinny jeans inside. Also layer layer layer, just like how Lauren Conrad has a scarf and cardigan. No, the colors aren’t technically on the same palate, but they are all neutral, so it works.

Also, I love her little purse. Fits pretty much all you need, a phone, wallet and keys. The essentials.

Now that we’re starting to gear up for winter, what are essential items that we MUST have in our closet?

The Anytime / ALL the Time hoodie.

Picture 2I am perpetually a cold person, even when it’s pretty hot outside and sunny. I guess that’s no big shock since I had to move back to sunny California from cold New York. Anyway, I’m always looking for the perfect hoodie. My definition of the perfect hoodie is that it’s thin enough to wear ALL the time or layer, its super soft and cozy on my sensitive skin and it’s stretchy so that you can push up the arms and they actually stay.

People, look what I found at TARGET!

NOTE: Buy a size smaller if you like them snug because they will stretch out after continual use (which I know you’ll be doing!)

Oooooh Cardigans!

December 19, 2008

I’ve been resisting the urge to buy more clothing – because my closet is packed and so is my dresser. However, I cannot resist the urge to search the web and web shop without buying. And I found this amazingly comfortable cardigan that’s loungy yet can be dressy on sale for only $20 at Macys! SCORE!
