Happy New Year!
When the temperature drops, it can sometimes be a struggle to style outfits that are warm and stylish. Last week, I was in New York City and I couldn't help but notice that during this time of year function wins over fashion and most people walk around looking like eskimos in puffer coats that cover their bodies from head to toe. Luckily, southern California's "cold" temperatures still lend itself to styling fun outfits. One thing that I've learned is that layers are your friend and playing with different fabrics and textures is an easy way to make your functional look a bit more fashionable.
For today's post, I paired a flowing maxi (dress worn as a) skirt with strappy sandals, a white turtleneck and a matching white pea coat. To put an east coast friendly spin on this outfit you could swap out the sandals for black over the knee boots and layer 2 (or even 3!) pairs of sheer or opaque nylons underneath for extra warmth. You can also layer a tank or an extra turtleneck under your top, depending on how cold it is.
Thanks so much for visiting me!
