California Winter

As I was cleaning up my computer, I realized that I had one more outfit post from my trip to California over the holidays. Yesterday, the temperature cracked 40 degrees here in NYC. For a brief moment, we remembered what warmth was.

This was my favorite outfit that we took pictures of while I was home. I really like the way my gray sweater pairs with the navy skirt. Also, this skirt is one of the best things I bought in 2014 (I’m still kicking myself for not picking it up in black when I had the chance). I’m at that stage where I’m totally sick of winter. I’m tired of everything in my closet and I’m tired of having to wear a gajillion layers all the time. The 40-degree weather was a step in the right direction. Do you hear that weather gods?

I’ve been coping by doing a lot of online browsing recently. All of the spring clothes have started to arrive in stores. Although it’s not warm enough to actually wear these things yet, a girl can dream.

It was pretty quiet around here this weekend. As I mentioned, we got new internet installed (which is a vast improvement already) and we also got cable, which means I was actually able to watch the Oscars yesterday. On my best-dressed list, there’s Lupita in thousands of pearls, Rosamund Pike in red (best she’s looked all season, though I wish she’d had a brighter lip), and I thought Zoe Saldana looked gorgeous in a blush dress. Looking back at pictures, there were a lot of safe choices and not that many stand-outs. Who are your picks for best-dressed?

    Don’t worry – winter will soon be over! I was blown away by Laura Dern’s Oscar look – that dress was stunning.

  5. lovely look! Oh yes, how spoiled are we in CA. I know we complain about “cold” but it’s obviously nothing compared to what people on the East Coast get!

    I’m pretty sure at this point we’ve all had more than our fill of winter, and that skirt really is adorable… maybe it will come back again?
