As we kiss goodbye to Fall and say hello to Winter, we welcome all things warm & cozy. I’ve already gotten into the habit of making warm cups of hot coco right before bed (P.S.: Trader Joes makes delicious Sipping Hot Chocolate). But besides the delicious holiday drinks, we also get into the habit of dressing as warm & weather appropriate as possible.
Los Angeles has finally cooled down & we’re seeing winter weather ahead, so before it gets a shivering cold, I had to give my LILA CLOTHING CO. (URBAN OUTFITTERS – similar) slouchy cardigan a go. What I love about this brand is it’s amazing quality & their ability to keep up with today’s trends. They are a small business & their products can be found throughout boutiques across the US. How I keep up with them is by following their line through SHOPTIQUES. I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
Something I noticed about myself, is that whenever Fall and Winter roams around, I always seem to bring out penny loafers. I purchased these from ZARA (ZARA – similar) last year & they have definitely become a season staple. I love pairing these with a good pair of jeans (PAIGE) & cuffing them just a bit to make me appear a tad bit taller.
Also at this time of year, what I really appreciate are good knits! Whether they are chunky or semi-thin, as long as they do the job at keeping me warm, they get an A+ in my book! I’ve been taking notice that ANN TAYLOR makes great knits! Their pieces are timeless & can be used through the years to come. That being said, I topped off my outfit with my ANN TAYLOR turtleneck & finished it off with my KATE SPADE bangle (LORD & TAYLOR).
