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!
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 …
Is there anything more comfortable than an oversized sweater and cashmere scarf?? I think not!! It was 60 today and I was loving it!! Never hot, never cold, just perfect San Diego weather 🙂 Oh and btw, don’t you think thigh high boots make everything look fab ?? Links to purchase below!
Each time I visit San Diego I start to get giddy. I know I’ll be visiting my all time favorite mall, Fashion Valley! And in that mall consists of my all time favorite store, Nordstrom! There’s something about having all your desired brands in one store, I mean, it doesn’t get better than that! I lust over Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Chloe, and Balenciaga, just to name a few but then again let’s not forget all the other drool worthy brands like Chanel, Fendi, Valentino, Burberry …. ok I’m getting excited all over again!
The Marc by Marc Jacobs bag I’m carrying on this day was a purchase from my last visit to this mall a couple of months ago. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, my access to designer brands is limited in my small Mid-West city, so malls like Fashion Valley is a special treat for me! On this particular trip I was shopping for sunnies but who can help browsing through designer handbags!!
