febYOURary's Must-Have Staples

Happy February everyone! Sorry we didn't have a post last Thursday like I said we would (sad face). Hopefully the content from this post makes up for it. I thought it might be helpful to give a suggestion about what you might want to think about wearing this month and/or what you might want to buy if you have some cash to spend. It's supposed to be very rainy and cold this month, so here are 3 must-have staples for the California cold! 
1. Plain Wool Cardigan
This cardigan is very warm because it's real wool. I don't own very many cardigans or jackets, but the ones I have are good quality...and that's all that matters! Black is always a smart choice in the winter because it nearly matches everything, and I personally enjoy wearing darker colors when it's cold.

Tip: Have a summer collared tank top that's sitting in your closet? Button up your cardigan all the way and...voila, it's a collared top!!! See how it looks like a peter pan collared top on the bottom right? It's so easy, simple, and clean. 

Black Cardigan: Polo Ralph Lauren
2. Textured Long Cardigan
I love this cardigan because it's very fuzzy and warm. It has a hipster, relaxed look, which I really like about it. It's also a beige-tan color, which makes it very easy to match.

Tip: Wear a long cardigan with a pair of boyfriend jeans and your outfit will look effortlessly put together!
How cute are the button and pockets?!? I bought this cardigan on sale and I've used it very well. It goes really well with a pair of brown booties I own.

Cardigan: Abercrombie // Patterned Blouse: Nordstrom
 3. Wool Coat

I bought this coat on sale from Zara and it was still pricy but well worth-it! I love the subtle pink more than anything. I had only owned one coat until I got this a few weeks ago, so it's an exciting addition to my winter closet. If you feel like it's too late in the game to buy a coat, don't feel so hesitant. Better to buy now than never!

Tip: A coat speaks for itself. It's what makes dressing up for the winter more simple in certain ways. A scarf like the one above is more than sufficient.

 Light Pink Coat: Zara 
I was up in Big Bear two weeks ago, and there was so much snow! Most of these pictures were taken in 20-30 degrees weather, so I was literally freezing. There should be a lot more rain and snow on its way because El Nino is just warming up. Brrrr!
