Hello from LA! I just made it back from Florence and while working on this post I am battling the worst jet lag, but as long as you can be productive and create that’s all that matters, right?
Today I would like to cover different layering options for cooler weather. Here is a sleeveless coat that some might think is quite a useless item in the winter, but don’t rush to judge! I wore it with a warm turtleneck sweater top from Banana Republic and this combo did keep me toasty on a much colder than usual, LA winter day – even with having my arms bare. If you are in more severe temperatures, use a turtleneck or a sweater underneath or top it with a leather jacket or a chunky scarf for a more of a layered and contemporary look.
Finally, the royal blue color also uplifts the mood from the whole neutral black and gray look and adds a nice color contrast from more typical winter shades.
