Keeping Warm, Staying Cool

Since it’s been so effin’ cold of late, all I’ve been doing is scrolling through street style blogs, attempting to make bummer bars and puppy chow, and wrapping gifts for the impending holiday. Although the editorials tell us to drape our winter coats over our shoulders to be oh-so-chic for communicating that perfect layering prowess, you can flush that trend right down the proverbial toilet when the temperatures start to dip down into subterranean numbers. But in case you didn’t get the memo, our bodies are demanding more coverage via warm coats, our skin needs more moisturizing, and we want to eat everything in sight.

So what’s a girl to do to survive the winter doldrums? Layering is the name of the game, for sure. Grab those puffys/those shearlings/ those furs, hats, and scarves on over your hair. And to add just the right panache when your hair just wants to do its thing, tuck your tresses into your turtleneck. The turtleneck? I think it’s always been an item of clothing people either love or hate. For me, it’s always been a love. Apparently, I’m not the only one.

I love the combo here of the Ray Bans, the black ring, and the knit turtleneck

..and ah! Phoebe Philo who holds a special place at Céline and in our hearts for being breathtakingly beautiful and multi-talented all at once. She manages to whip up everything we want to wear at all times, I pray to everything Philo. Look at her gives the illusion of a bob and I especially love the hair haphazardly tucked in.

Leave it to Maison Martin Margiela to turn things upside down by flaunting your locks inside your shirt. This is where magic happens.

I find that “tucking it all inside” during the winter, is the best thing since kale chips.What?
