Walkies!

Doggehs 2

After a rainy weekend, my pups were very happy to get out for a nice long walk once it let up. I don’t mind walking in the rain, but they hate it. They hate wearing raincoats even more.

Not me. I fell in love with this Sandro jacket when we were visiting London in 2013, and have never regretted the purchase. It’s perfect for our Southern California climate. It’s lightweight enough to wear even into late spring, but now in “winter” (such as we get in LA) I’ll layer sweaters underneath for warmth. The charcoal grey NYDJ jeans were one of my best 2014 purchases. They are comfortable, versatile and a nice break from blue denim. Plus, they don’t show the dog hair as much. ;-p read more

Whenever I wear my hair “down,” lots of people asked if I’ve cut it. They’re always surprised to hear that I haven’t because it definitely looks quite different. Sometimes I wear it down just to mix things up, but lately I’ve been doing it because of -30 degree windchills. My messy/curly ‘do gets totally squashed by my hat, but worn like this I look relatively normal post-hat. And when it’s that cold out, a hat is absolutely required. read more

This cardigan is an oldie but a goody. More of a duster than a boyfriend, it’s super long which makes it feel a little dramatic and tougher to style than some of my shorter long cardigans. But it felt just right with these (birthday!) burgundy jeans and my long charm pendant. A fun mix of subdued shades for weekend rompings. read more
