Living near the beach here in San Diego makes these rainy, gloomy days also breezy! While the temp might say it’s 58 degrees out the wind from the ocean definitely brings in the chill factor. I’m not really complaining considering my hometown is facing a multiple day ice storm!! I’ll continue to feel lucky through the winter months.

However, today was a day to bundle up and a cozy, high-neck coat and thigh-high boots was a must! You can’t go wrong with the basics, gray and black are always chic!

The Power of Neutrals.

I know I’ve blogged about this outfit recently but I wanted to share a little bit of my thoughts on combining all neutrals for an over all power look. Don’t you just love when a bunch of basic items make up a not so basic outfit? Here I’m displaying a neutral palette. No outrageous patterns or colors just a simple color combo, each item offering it’s own simplicity to an outfit. However, when they’re all put together the impact is strong! To me, this outfit is comfortable, yet confident and that always speaks volumes …

Wearing another leather jacket today cause, well, why not?! A heavy coat’s not really needed at this time of year here in SoCal or at least not yet … hmmm, to be continued though as the weather starts cooling off day by day. Anyway, what I’ve always loved about leather jackets, is that when worn, they create an instant chic to any outfit. I can be wearing sweats and put a leather jacket on and instantly feel too cool for school 😉

This particular day was 65 and cloudy, so for me, a light jacket was needed. I bought this jacket last year at Forever21 for my oldest daughter. She never wears it, so I do 🙂 And these boots should be a staple to anyone’s closet, they literally go with everything! Links to this outfit below …

I channeled my inner Cher Horowitz yesterday and rocked this tweed plaid skirt from ZARA. Black and white combos are my jam! Whether it’s with my wardrobe or decor I always gravitate towards the ultimate classic look.

On this particular day the weather was amazing! Around 73 and near the water in Downtown San Diego definitely had me feeling like fall was in the air. I’ve been looking for basically any excuse to break out the boots and this skirt was it! With feminine pieces like the lace bodysuit, the quilted bag, and plaid skirt, the thigh high’s really add a touch of sexy edginess to an otherwise classy outfit and I just love it!

I bought these boots years ago from Marshall’s and have never seen them anywhere since. The gold hardware with black suede is what makes me fall in love time and time again, I swear I’ll be 80 and still wearing them! And since they’re no longer available I’ve linked a similar option from the same designer for you below that will give you the same feels as these do. Everything else is direct linked .. Enjoy!
