Blake Lively. This girl would look good in a bag. Great short jacket/long sweater look.
One of my very favorite things about Winter is outerwear! Coats and jackets have always been my vice and I probably have too many. When I'm in a coat I don't have to worry about what I have on so much. I live in sweaters and jeans in the colder part of the year. All you need to do is throw on a great coat, a warm scarf, cute boots and done! No need to need to worry if you're feeling a bit chunky. Who could tell under all the layers? Pass the scones!
Lately here in Northern California, it's been unusually warm and sunny. The Winter sun has been lovely and I have been trying to take walks. It is still getting chilly when the sun goes down though. I just have to be warm and it's getting worse as I get older. If I have to wear a coat resembling a sleeping bag I will! I see now how all those seniors start heading to Arizona..

After a few weeks home with the kids and Christmas vacation, I find myself reaching for the same sweats and jeans day after day. My style quotient is like zero right now and I need to get my fashion mojo back. Does anyone else feel this way? Here's some inspiration to help you out of the cold weather wardrobe blahs.
