Winter prep

Ignoring the fact that it has been slightly seasonally warm lately, winter is still coming, and before I fall into my rut of sweaters and denim, I'd like to explore a few basics that can make even jeans and knits feel new and fun.

The back of this Clu Striped Sweater Dress is silk ruffles, so that is super fun. The rest is wool, and with those long sleeves all that's needed is a pair of tights to keep cozy. see more sweater dresses

Any excuse to make this Kate Spade Fox Clutch appropriate to carry around every day would work. It's just too cute. see more bags by Kate Spade

A pair of Hunter Shiny Red Rain Boots have been on my list for a while. They might be too much, so I haven't gotten them, but then again, they might be just enough when trudging through the white snow. see more Hunter boots

Silk might not be my first choice for a lining as it is in these Carolina Amato Blue Leather Gloves but the color is just too gorgeous. see more gloves

I know I would have too much fun walking around with this Kate Spade Umbrella, wouldn't you? see more umbrellas

Some prints were just made for the winter, and this Capulet Plaid Blazer demonstrates that perfectly. see more blazers

  1. Winter has definitely arrived in Vancouver, although we're still getting the occasional sunny day. I'm miraculous still carrying the same umbrella I had last year but I'm always on the lookout for cuter ones and this one from Kate Spade is just adorable! (Plus I could actually see where I was going while carrying it, which would be a big bonus - walking in the dark with an umbrella is dangerous, something I forget every year until I do it for the first time.)

  2. Ooh that dress is so cute! And I looove the fox, animals are always my favorite ;)

  3. the weather sure has been interesting lately.
    great picks...that umbrella is adorable!

  4. That clutch is so fun, and I like the striped dress! :)

  5. The Kate Spade umbrella is so cute! I've been wanting a pair of Hunter Boots as well. I saw a plaid blazer at Express that I was salivating over but refused to pay the price LOL. Great choices doll!

  6. I love the Kate Spade clutch. I ordered the fox beanie earlier today.
