Why is it so cold

Thursday, February 17, 2011
It was so cold today I had to wear two cardigans AND a scarf. This is ridiculous. It's February in L.A. Shouldn't I be at the beach or something? No, because beaches are gross and dirty...at least, the beaches I'm familiar with. Atlantic City, I'm talking to you.

I like that I wore two cardigans. I never did that before so I was pretty proud of myself today. I thought of my chunkier, heavier cardigan Chase gave me for love day as a jacket with a lighter cardigan underneath. Try it. It'll change the way you look at cardigans forever...forever...forever.

I'm wearing a Forever 21 cardigan (gift from Chaser-babe - buy one here!), secondhand Forever 21 cardigan ($5) underneath, DownEast Basics shirt (gift from my mother-in-law - get it here!), H&M necklace ($5), secondhand blue scarf ($3), J Brand jeans ($158 - buy them here!), and Target clogs (gift from my in-laws) with a JCPenney bag (free with gift cards).

  4. Haha, you're hilarious! And yes, New Jersey is gross. Ever smelled the Meadowlands?

    I've worn double cardigans once before. My husbands reactions was "Ooohh, a double cardigan! What does it mean?" Thanks sweetie.

  7. You look so cold. It's a little over 50 degrees in Ohio, and I'm not even wearing a jacket. It's like a heat wave.

  12. Whenever you bring out that scarf, I go on a frantic search to find one of that color! It just looks so cozy too :) It has been really cold lately :( I was stupid and only wore one cardigan today, but tomorrow I'm definitely wearing two! I love the layered look of wearing two (and the practicality too)!

  13. I hate this cold snap! Love the two cardigans, I picked up a chunky cardi over the weekend on clearance at the Ann Taylor outlet... think I'll try this!

  16. I'm not new to layering cardigans but I don't think I looked half as stylish as you do in these pictures! If you're cold, I can tell you that we've been experiencing temperatures of 10 degrees C below zero (the equivalent of 19 degrees F) and gale force winds - that's freezing! Have a great weekend:)

  17. the scarf and the shoes are perfect!!!

  18. I love the idea of 2 cardigans and I love love the color palette. You nail it each and every time. You know what? It's kind of annoying. And addictive.

  19. cool=))))))))))))))))))))))))

  20. it's cold so that layering gets a chance:) you look good and you're warm so what's not in place? but then it's easy for me to talk, 30C here...

  21. Layering cardigans looks like a really great idea! I must invest in a chunkier cardigan though x

  22. Love your cardigan so much. Maybe there's not so cold if you can wear sandals, or? Here is -1 degree.

  23. i will have to try the cardigan over cardigan before winter is over..although i might have to wait for a really cold night or just next winter.
    i really like this look!

  40. I wish I was in LA right now and not Canada! Be happy there isn't ice and snow all over the ground in LA. Love that pretty scarf!

  41. It's cold in LA, because it's warm in Jersey. Windows opened warm, in February!

    But anyway, love the blue scarf, double cardi and open toe shoes!

    Again about Jersey, I'll give you that AC's beaches are gross. But, it is not representative of our state. There are some, quite a few, gorgeous places in NJ. (for real, I promise :-) )

  42. Love this!! Looks like we switched weather today, it was SO warm here (well...upper 50s...hahaha)...I didn't even need my jacket!

  43. I like the double cardigan. In Michigan, I can't say it's a novel idea with all our cold... but you make it look so lovely in Cali.

  46. Great outfit! i like the colors!

  47. at least cooler weather leads to awesome layering. just imagine if it were warmer, you would have never thought to reinvent cardigan wearing as you know it.

  48. Ahaha despite the fact I go to the Jersey Shore every summer, I totally love the dig at AC. I tried one of their beaches about two years ago. Never. Again.
