Keeping Warm

Last week, the craziest thing happened here in Los snowed! Yes, it was so cold here that in some areas, like Pasadena, there was actually some light snow! Luckily, I recently stocked up on some cold weather essentials that were on clearance at J. Crew, such as this striped cashmere sweater and this yellow coat. When it comes to purchasing items for cold weather like sweaters and heavy jackets, I always pause because I know I won't get a lot of use out of them but this time it paid off, as I've really been bundling up all month long!

I think it's safe to say that a cashmere sweater, colorful slacks and a heavy coat has officially become my work wardrobe as of late! I should also mention that I originally bought this coat in green first and because I loved it so much, I purchased this yellow one shorty after! I've gotten a lot of use out of both coats and both were on sale as well, so between the price and my frequent usage, the cost per wear is fairly low! I should note, though, that warmer weather is in the forecast for this week, so these coats might be going back into dust bags and back into the closet shortly. Still, I really did enjoy wearing my new coats while the cold weather lasted!

  1. That yellow coat is beautiful on you and I love the green pants with it! I have a pair of green jeans I thrifted a while back and I'm looking forward to cooler weather so I can wear them a little more! :)

    Hope that your week is off to a great start! Thanks for joining the #weekdaywearlinkup :)
