Weather in LA is usually warm and sunny, but we’ve actually seen some chilly days which I’ve been enjoying. There’s nothing like snuggling up on a dark, gloomy day, and getting to wear all the sweaters I have just chilling. But over the weekend it was really warm, I’m talking cutoff shorts warm. It just feels wrong to wear ‘em in January, you know? But I styled them to look less summer-like and more winter-esque. Booties and chunky cardigans always come in handy here.

The Art of Layering

I’ve been on a real turtleneck kick. When I was younger I used to despise them, but now I can’t get enough. Whether in sweater or shirt form, a turtleneck can go far in your wardrobe. I always try and find new ways to style mine, and I’ve been having fun layering this one under different sweaters and dresses. It’s crazy how layering something can change the entire look and feel of an outfit. I wore this shift dress a few months back and it looks great on its own, but when worn with this top, it takes it to a whole new level.

First, Happy New year! Second, I’m sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. The last couple of months have been a whirlwind, between starting my new job at Who What Wear(!) to the holidays, I’ve had very little time to update my blog. But it’s 2015, so I’m hoping to get my posting back on track, even though the next few weeks are still going to be pretty busy, so bare with me. Aside from all of that, one of my style resolutions is to start investing in basics—items that I can wear for years, that will never go out of style. To start, I got these simple Saint Laurant flats that I’ve been living in. They make everything I wear feel more polished and put together, and that’s all a gal can ask for, right?
