Closet Must-Haves for LA Winters
It's been cold in LA, y'all. I know in other parts of the country 60° is a great time to leave the coats in your closet, but we're just not used to that here in sunny Southern Cali!
Note: This article may contain affiliate links... but I only recommend the things I love!
Since the cold snap seems to be sticking around, I thought it'd be a great time to share my latest obsession—my soft pink faux fur coat by Lovers + Friends. The best part is that it's on sale over at revolve.com right now! You can get yours here.
Meet my Lovers + Friends Oakley Faux Fur Coat
This cozy coat (and my denim jacket) has been my go-to piece of clothing to stay warm over the last few weeks. Not only does it feel luxurious, but I love being able to dress it up or down. (You all know how much I love to have pieces in my closet that I can wear a number of different ways and this is truly one of those items!)
This coat can get fancy with a fun dress or sleek pants (like my favorite fishtail pants seen here) AND dressed down with your favorite pair of denim for a more casual, chic look.
PS. There's some serious posing going on in the above pic, but don't be fooled... I'm really a dork. I just love that I'm in my fave everyday sunnies by Ray-Ban that I can literally wear every day and not get sick of.
Speaking of my fishtail pants... they are everything!
I'll take a good pair of pants or jumper any day over a dress, and I love these fishtail pants by Norma Kamali because the bottom makes you feel like you're wearing a dress without all of the fuss. Need something new for a date night or girls night out? These are perfect!
I love and appreciate the high-rise silhouette at 5'3, and my favorite way to wear them is to pair them with a black top like the Bright Lights Tee by Free People I'm wearing here tucked in to the pant. Normally, I avoid accessorizing with jewelry if I can, so I love that this top has an attached choker that plays like a necklace.
(Side note, am I the only girl who can't stand wearing jewelry?! I will literally wear my engagement and weddings rings and diamond stud earrings, whether casual or attending a fancy event, and that's it. Hubby is a watch enthusiast and has been trying to get me to wear one forever!)
To complete the sleek and stylish vibe, I dressed this outfit up with my fave nude heels by Stuart Weitzman. These are the heels that have my heart, mamas! They can make any outfit come together beautifully. And you can't go wrong in an all black outfit with nude heels!
I've told you how much I love my Levi's denim, they are just so versatile and make it easy to pull off a casual chic vibe with my Lovers + Friends coat. Since the coat adds so much volume, I decided to pair my jeans with a loosly-fitted black leotard top by Free People so fittingly called Tees for my Jeans Bodysuit and my booties by Vince Camuto.
These boots are made for walking
Seriously! I love to wear boots and high heels but they can't be as high (or uncomfortable) as I used to wear before babies. I need to be able to run after my always energetic boys, you feel me? I can run and comfortably walk in these, so I file them under mom approved!
Of course, my Celine sunnies are a must-have, because even when it's below 60°, the sun is shining in beautiful LA!
