Super fun fact- this outfit was shot in front of the courthouse from Legally Blonde. My favorite places to shoot are either places with nice flowers or greenery, or a spot with nice vintage/stately architecture. This gorgeous building is the civic center and courthouse in Santa Ana. I had no idea it was the set of one of my favorite movies, but I knew it looked familiar somehow!
My winter color palette is always centered around black and white- I love the crisp and classic vibe they bring to cold-weather outfits. This cozy mock neck sweater by BP has been on regular wardrobe rotation at home and during the day. I paired it with this striped midi skirt from J. Crew, made of a light sweater knit material. I wouldn't normally think "midi skirt" if someone said "winter clothes", but the sweater texture of this skirt works for the season!
Southern California's winters are usually sunny and warm (and the years are getting increasingly hotter), but we've actually had quite the rain storm coming through these past few weeks. It was actually raining as we took these pictures. I happen to love rain, a weird quirk you develop when your state is in drought and you actually enjoy having to cuddle up in blankets and layers of clothing. So I guess it's not always sunny here in California- I've got those January blues just like the rest of you!
