What to Wear: The Coldest Winter

The old adage "the coldest winter I ever spent was summer in San Francisco" is in full effect this week. It is a blazing 54 degrees outside, overcast and drizzly. I'm tempted to unpack my fall tweeds and wools, or just to stay in bed under the down comforter with a cup of tea addressing wedding invitations. In the meantime, I'm dreaming of warm layers for this indian winter:

Turtleneck - Warm and goes with everything. Mine from H&M cost significantly less than $300.
Sweater - Completely ridiculous; what rational person would buy a third of a cableknit sweater? It is so adorable and soft in person though.
Belt - Worn low over the hips.
Jeans - I have a new wide leg, trouser pair being tailored for me at Saks.
Flats - My current stash is starting to get a little worn, time for a trip to Nordstrom rack to stock up.
Pashmina - My current best friend.
Bag - On sale from Kenneth Cole.
Glasses - To keep the mist out of your eyes.

Stay warm out there San Francisco!

I'm so jealous... it's a high of 99 here today. It was 104 yesterday. Lovely with 100% humidity.

I can't complain about the weather here. One season we do well here...generally! I did enjoy your comment on the cableknit shrug...my husband always laughs at sweaters like that, but you are right they can be adorable. Great picks, love the outfit.

p.s. a friend recommended your blog to me, it is lovely.
