What To Wear: Winter In Los Angeles
Yeah, those of you who live in the rest of the country can laugh, but it’s been COLD here the last few days. Cold for us, anyway.
My solution is to layer up (I’m actually wearing a thermal tee underneath my sweater!), and top it off with an indoor-outdoor coat. Almost no businesses or restaurants here offer coat check, so be prepared to either wear your coat through your meal, or drape it over the back of your chair. I’ve had this little cotton blend coat from Eileen Fisher for 3 (?) years, and it’s one I reach for often in the winter. (Similar).

It was sunny yesterday when I took these photos, but we’ve had several days of rain in the last couple of weeks, and more on the way. I love the brightness of red in winter months, but am most comfortable wearing it as an accessory. This wool J.Crew scarf is a few years old, and still one of my favorites. I find that black and red on its own can be a bit harsh, so I’ve broken it up with some medium blue jeans, metallic boots and taupe bag. The texture of the jacket also softens the black and lowers the contrast a little bit.
Brighten Your Outlook
Yes, these boots survived the Great Heel Purge Of 2019. Even though they’re a 2″ heel, they’re very stable and comfortable. Earlier in the week, I wore these on a day where I spent several hours on my feet, and had no problems at all.
