Acne Rue Mohair Sweater and Anine Bing Bohemian Linen Skirt

For Christmas the main thing that I wanted was a new sweater from Acne. I chose their Rue mohair sweater in 'Dove White'. It is similar to their Wham sweater in grey melange, which I got last Christmas but I love their sweaters so much that I don't mind. They are the epitome of cozy and I love the way they are cut. The only downside is that moths find them just as appealing and if you forget to put them in a storage bag (or apparently the freezer, thank you Leith Clark for that tip) over the summer you might find holes in them...lesson learned.

Either way, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas or whatever you did yesterday!

Gap Moto Coat

Despite what most people assume, Los Angeles does get chilly during the winter and I find that a sweater and a jacket are usually necessary. With this in mind, I picked up this grey, wool moto style, cocoon shaped coat with leather detailing from Gap before I left for LA and I am quite happy with it. It is minimal and even though it is cocoon shaped it still tailored enough to pull an outfit together in just the right way.


Christmas in Los Angeles

Christmas Swim by Slim Aarons

This year I will be celebrating Christmas here in Los Angeles with J. For me this has been a little difficult, as Christmas is my favorite holiday and this will be my first time celebrating it away from my family (not being with my family is truly the hardest part). What makes this all the more difficult is that J's family does not actually celebrate Christmas so I am kind of alone with the whole Christmas spirit thing.

Still, I have a feeling that Christmas in LA is going to be a little like this photograph by Slim Aarons, which is pretty lovely looking if you ask me!


Instagram November

November through my instagram.

Byredo perfume, candles (lots of candles), my favorite Scandinavian candy, magazines and books, leather pants, outfit details, more candles... I feel like candles and magazines are what helped me through November's darkness.

Really, all of the cozy days and nights at home with my family in Vermont (even that night where I had to help my mother put furniture from Ikea together), coming to Los Angeles, getting to spend time with my best (and all of the magazines and books he gave me) got me through November.

That being said,
Happy December!
