A California Winter

California winter and Chicago winter are drastically different, duh. That being said, there’s some added relief and joy to be experienced when I get to escape the midwest and take a trip home to San Diego during those months! For the past two weeks, I have been visiting my parents and my dog Lola for a short little getaway before I start my last semester of college. It’s so insane that I will be done with school in just a few short months. Before I head back to the cold and snowy Chicago, I’d thought I would share a fun little outfit I wore in Cali!

Make sure to check the links below to get the look!

Believe it or not, California does get chilly and rainy in the winter! I had to skip a few days from shooting this look because the weather was so dark and gloomy. Stay tuned for ACTUAL winter looks in Chicago 😉

West coast, midwest, regardless of where you live or go to school, check out some go-to products I’ve discovered that get me through the year. Maybe they’ll be on your list too!

Stay stylin’,
