A Winter Night in December

Venice, CA

I remember experimenting SO much with my winter style when I first moved to NYC.  I figured out what looked “cute”, what actually kept me warm, and basically what was practical or not to wear in freezing cold temps! Can you stay warm while looking fab at the same time? The answer is a big YES!  After plenty of trial and error – I realized the importance of material (wool, cashmere, shearling, leather) and layers!  I splurged on a gorgeous shearling coat for my birthday a few days ago and knew it would be the perfect coat to wear not only on chilly LA date nights (I wore it to Nobu last night!) but also for upcoming trips to NYC and Europe.  I’m already envisioning myself gallivanting through Paris in it haha!  Bloomingdales has SO many amazing shearling coats right now… I just picked up this Mother one which you may have seen on instastory and am loving this one and this one.  Pair a great shearling with lived in boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, or a well made black trouser like these from Elie Tahari.  What I love about these fitted black trousers is that they’re a bit dresser than a black skinny jean and you can wear this look from the office (with a blazer or cardigan) straight out to drinks or a holiday party.  You can also tuck these trousers into boots (a major plus), and they’re made without bulky seams so they’re chic and sleek.  I love that they’re a lower rise which gives them that “cool” factor that I want if I’m going out for the night ;)  Bloomingdales carries such an amazing selection of Elie Tahari tailored pieces (like this draped grey coat that just went on sale and this elegant cut out top.)  I’ll be taking this beautiful cream blouse to San Francisco tomorrow for a little birthday getaway trip!

    Love the coat! It’s cold here in SoCal! I usually feel it’s overkill wearing a big coat in CA being from the Midwest, but I’m kinda loving these cold evenings we’ve had that have given me the chance to break out the cute stylish coats, scarfs, and layers. Happy holidays Kat!

    I loved reading about your move and how many coats you have and can’t really wear in LA. I moved from NYC to SF 2 years ago and can’t get over the fact that winter coats used to be me favorite purchase… now I have to travel East or go skiing to be able to wear them. Love your posts and giveaways 💕

    Happy bday Kat, you look amazing wearing your new Shearling. I used to sell fur coats not too long ago and absolutely love them, I know its bad since I love animals too. But Shearlings are the best when it comes to staying warm. Living in NYC and traveling the world, it could get very cold in some places.

    Ohhh and what an amazing giveaway you have, I have been eyeing that Away Luggage for a while, and its the perfect color! Would love to start of the new year with it!

    First of all, all of your outfits look super cute!! Question though do you actually wear heels all the time or just for posts? Bc I feel like I cannot wear heels more than for 4-5hrs😅

    Yay! Your posts about style and fashion are my favs!! Since I’ve moved to London from my small Caribbean island I have noticed how bad my sense of fashion is haha so I look up to every new post about outfits you upload and use you as an inspiration and then try to find those pieces here. I think thanks to you I have managed to upgrade my closet just a bit but I still have much to learn so please keep them coming! Thank you so much!

    Love, Davianna
