No one does luxe layers like Varley. I’ve been wearing Varley for a couple years, and have always loved their workout looks from chic sports bras, to incredibly chic fleeces. They continue to innovate luxury layers that I cannot seem to live without. As we’re in between houses, I made sure to include my favorite Varley track pants and coordinating zip ups in my “only the essentials” duffle. I’ve been living in their joggers and zip ups here in Florida. Afterall, cozy clothes don’t have to be frumpy. Move over crop leggings, meet the joggers, knit zip up and jacket of dreams. Tell me your favorites and shop them all below.
Accessories: Spencer socks

What’s the last bag you purchased?
This one in denim and I linked other favorites!
Help, I missed the NuFace sale!!
No worries, here’s one on sale. Your face has muscles and this lifts the face muscles. Do one side at a time. I use the face spray to moisten the face.
I need a jogger that doesn’t look like I gained 20# from Covid, on a budget preferably.
Here! Love these in black, under $50.

It’s no secret, over-the-knee boots are the must-have of the season. Wear them up or down, with leggings or skinny jeans, and recently I even wore mine with a ruffle dress (more of that to come!). Talk about versatility! I love the fit-like-a-glove feel and the heel isn’t too high to make chasing my 3 year-old an impossibility. As I’m sure you know by now, the kid’s got tons of personality and spunk so chasing him happens more than I’d like. Below, I show 6 OTK boots for every desired heel height and budget, from $69 to $875. See also how I styled them here. Don’t forget, you’ve got until midnight tonight to enter the ring giveaway!
It’s back to school this week, and although I’m feeling the pains of routine (i.e. getting the kids out the door by 8am), it’s good to be back. This winter, it’s all about upping your layering game. And apparently January in LA mandates all the layers as its been so chilly and wet. Here, I paired a bell sleeve sweater and studded military jacket with simple jeans and heels. I love that I could also pair this sweater with a black leather jacket for a black and gray look. Stylist tip: order one size up in sweaters or tees to get that cozy off-the-shoulder-look. And THANK YOU for entering the Jane Pope ring giveaway! If you missed it, you can still sign up till the 13th, details in this post. Happy Tuesday!

To be honest, when it comes to ponchos, I haven’t always been a fan. They’re either oversized, the wrong print, or miss-styled. However, there are a few worth sharing here. I’m loving this camel print from FRYE, the color block of this TULEROSA poncho and yes I found this one under $30. And I’m secretly hoping this cooler LA winter sticks around so I can sport this $50 cape too. Our morning started with puff pancakes (see the recipe here), a little Boxing day shopping, then packing for our trip to the mountains. Hope your Monday is wonderful!

Sometimes you need one coat in your closet to spice things up. Well, this is it. I’m loving this combo – lots of gray (preferably off the shoulder and cozy) and multi-colored faux fur. Even though I cannot wear this coat past 11 o’clock or so in LA, I make the most of it. This sweater is lightweight and perfect for layering. For Christmas, I just wanna get all my sisters sweaters because they are so good. I hope you are more ahead on the Christmas cards and gifts than I am. I also styled faux fur here and here, if you missed it. Happy weekend!
