Winter Is Coming: A Search For Knitted Everything and THE Brown Boots

Southern California weather is a finicky gal.

One day she has a mellow temperament that’ll warm you up even on your moodiest of days, the next she a cold, face-chapping bitch. There’s no real in between.

I’ll probably get nasty stares by saying this, but man, is it hot this November. Earlier this week it was a solid 90 degrees in some L.A. cities, but I’m happy to report that today is a balmy 64.

Welp! That’s my cue to bring my “winter” garb to the front of my closet.

This time of the year always calls to the east-coaster within (or what I envision east coasters to look like, as I’ve never been…)

My hit list includes:

Knit Beret

Knit Beret

Something in a neutral color like the sandy colored one pictured above, plus a fuzzy pom.

Hopefully no bunnies were harmed in the making of that photo.

Military Jacket

Fur Military Coat

Fur-trimmed hood, lots of pockets, badass olive green hue. Yes, please.

I also like that this jacket isn’t super bulky. It gets chilly here in Los Angeles, but there’s really no reason to wear a damn PARKA!

Slouchy Sweater

Oversized Knit Sweater

Chunky (and slightly clunky). Doesn’t this sweater make you want to grab a cup of hot cocoa and just kick back?

Brown Boots (and Leg Warmers)

Brown Knee High Boots

Yes, both. But not a 2-in-1, because that’s just sad. I already have a pair of low-heeled, knee-high brown boots by Born that I purchased at a discount Mexican store for $55 (what? I like fancy things, but hate paying a fancy price).

But alas! My beloved boots are torn up, and I need a new (more polished) pair.

The hunt has begun, my friends.

Jane in the Jungle: Prints Trend

I’m still getting over my cold, and thanks to the wintery weather forecast in LA right now, it’s not looking too great. Physically, I’m a complete mess, but mentally I’m lounging seaside, soaking in the vitamin D, and in total vacay-mode. This is my inspiration to get me through the rest of the week; it’s sultry, sexy, and playfully on par with the current spring trend of florals and animal print.

And those boots aim to KILL. Watch your back, fellas.
