California winter may not be considered intense by most, but when the high is only 60°F, doubling up on jackets and adding a faux fur is necessary to keep me warm. Don’t ask me how I handled Midwest winters as a college swimmer, literally walking almost a mile across campus with wet hair in negative temperatures. I don’t know. I was ridiculous.
Shop this outfit:
Fitted puffer jacket: French Connection via Piperlime // Black day jacket: Dolce & Gabbana, vintage via Encore in Burlingame, CA // Black v-neck: J.Crew // Waxed denim: Target (old, amazing J Brand option here) // Faux fur stole: H&M (last year) // Nude pumps: Nine West via Piperlime // Black tote: Coach // Men’s watch: Akribos // Cocktail ring: Nordstrom Rack // Stud earrings: Target // Sunglasses: Dior // Red nail polish: Chanel 475 Dragon (found in-store)
I actually got a phone call about my old swimming team and how they were doing at the latest meets as we were doing this shoot, and my photog-husband just kept shooting. He’s getting better and better with photography, and was even just featured in SFGate as my official photographer. Proud of you, boo!
If you haven’t noticed the Parisian theme going here lately, I’ll fill you in: I would like a vacation and a somehow gluten- and dairy-free croissant stat, please.
