the knit dress

My friends make fun of me because I tend to wear lots (and lots!) of layers when it's cold outside. Like, maybe too many for most people, but I just like being on the warm side. This might explain why I'm particularly drawn to this season's knit dress trend. It's basically head-to-toe warmth and designed for laissez-faire layering--plus delivers extra style points and snugness. What's not to love?? There are also so many variations, suitable for every mood and temperature swing. Case(s) in point: this striped Jacquemus dress (similar to below), this gorgeous go-anywhere Anna Quan ribbed slip-on, this puff-sleeve Ulla Johnson mini, this sexy cashmere Jonathan Simkhai, and this Rixo leopard-print midi in the last pic (made from jersey but looks like knit, so good for mild days, plus figure forgiving, too!).

work wear

Most days a week, I'm in two outfits a day: one for working out and the other for work, work, work! The first look has less wiggle room in terms of variety (my exercise gear is 99% flattering black!) but I can play around with what to wear over my leggings and sports bra. Sporty-chic jackets, flashy sweatshirts and zip-up fleeces help, particularly if they work post-workout, like the above reversible Tory Sport jacket, this shearling Varley sweatshirt, this Splits59 tie-dye pullover, this Adam Selman cropped print hoodie, this camo BB Dakota sweatshirt, and this Target print puffer.

cold case

The cold was real last night in LA. Okay, maybe just for thin-skinned Angelenos, but still... the chill inarguably warranted a jacket. Which brings me to share with you some compelling new options, all warm, wow-worthy, and wallet-friendly (always welcome, right?). Let's start with the cute and cozy sheepskin Mango, above (love the toggle buttons), along with these by Asos, H&M, The Fifth Label, Madewell, Urban Outfitters and Topshop.

ballerina babe

Mansur Gavriel's monogrammed ballerinas are back! In 12 different colors! Love the metallic silver, but definitely leaning toward this go-with-everything camel shade. (Note: they run a size small, order up!) Now for the monogram colors...

in print

On those non-jean days coming up, I'll be reaching for this season's printed pants. Because all I have to do afterward is throw on a simple blouse, t-shirt, or sweater and I'm done. Or not. I can change tack and pile it all on, like above, and go super done! Either way = greatness! The latest and greatest options come from Levi's ($98!),  Simon Miller (immediately below and last pic), Miu Miu (second snap below), Anthropologie, Madewell, Corey Lynn Calter, and Pam & Gela.

survivial gear

Boden's animal print boots will help me mentally prep for winter's wild weather. (Cute for apres in Aspen and the slushy streets of Manhattan.)

daily denim

I'm pretty certain I'm not the only one who needs more than one pair of everyday jeans. Read: justification for not one but two pairs of Rolla's jeans I recently purchased. The Australian brand has flattering fit, spot-on washes and amazing price ($99!) absolutely nailed. I bought the pair, above, and also in white

the oversized cardigan

oversized cardigan street style

My sis, my mother and I walked out of Zara yesterday with the same oversized Chanel-ish cardigan--along with equally big grins! (I'm wearing mine today without anything underneath, along with light-wash jeans and lots of layered necklaces.) Other statement cardigans I love are by Tory Burch, Maje, JOA, Shein, and And Other Stories.

twin talk

Although my sister and I live in the same city, we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like. That's because of her non-stop work/travel routine, our childrens' school and sports schedules, and her living on the other side of the 405 (i.e., another universe during rush hours!). So, when just one free hour opens up for us to get together, we pounce. Even it means sitting side by side yet working separately on our laptops! Such was the case yesterday, when we set up office at her kitchen counter. During her editing photos and my writing Le Catch, we discussed several outstanding subjects from the significant (our next Oui Want project!) to the mundane (choosing our birthday cake flavor) and everything in between like this Warehouse faux leopard trucker jacket--a total find (in my book!) that needed her stamp of approval. She loved it so much--"perfect on its own or under a thick coat," she exclaimed--that she bought one of her own.
