Most winter days here in the San Francisco Bay Area, offer up mild temperatures in the afternoon. So, I may start my day off all bundled up in a coat or sweater, but by noon, I am in a long sleeve tee and scarf.

This scarf has been my go-to all season long. It is warm, edgy, and blue! I love blue! It looks cute as the centerpiece of an outfit, as in these photos, or paired with a coat. I am so happy I splurged on it!

What is your go-to, casual winter outfit where you live?

How to rewear holiday attire after the holidays

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / Gap turtleneck (super soft!!!) / moto jacket c/o Tart Collections (also worn here) / Topshop sparkles skirt (also worn here) / watch c/o Daniel Wellington / Chanel spring nail polish / Givenchy handbag / Louise et Cie shoes (sold out, also love this pair)

So raise your hand if you watch “Real Housewives of Atlanta?” The series is airing right now, so lately I have been in the mood to twirl on! If you watch the show, you know Kenya gets her twirl on, and this holiday skirt is ideal for twirling away!

I am always wondering how to rewear holiday attire after the holidays. This skirt was my favorite holiday piece this season. I wore it to a holiday party at a friends house, the JLSJ Sustainer holiday party, and during the day on Christmas Eve. In order to keep on twirling, I decided to find a way to rewear my holiday skirt after the last of the Christmas tinsel was thrown in the trash bin.

This moto jacket from Bay Area brand Tart Collections is my current favorite on days when the temperatures hover in the high 50’s and 60’s. I decided it would be fun to pair it with my sparkling green holiday skirt.

In December, I met my friend Laura from Have Need Want for brunch in Capitola. I decided to wear this outfit after brunch for a brief stroll downtown where we visited a cute interior design shop that was sadly closing down. Since we are bloggers, we had to stop and snap pictures of our outfits!

Laura suggested I twirl, so I decided to channel Kenya and get my twirl on! Since she is “Gone with the Wind Fabulous,” I straightened up my posture, ignored the fact that we were on a busy street, and I twirled! Oh my, it was so much fun! I hope you enjoy these twirling photos. The skirt does twirl well!

So if you have a holiday skirt, dress, or pants, top it off with a casual shirt and edgy jacket. It will make a special occasion piece ready to wear during the day, everyday! If you have a sparkling holiday top, simply pair it with jeans and boots; and voila! Instant daytime outfit. Love that!

Happy winter! Now that Christmas is over, we can all think about shopping for ourselves again; not that some of us didn’t already do that between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yes, I am guilty!

I wanted to let you know about Daniel Wellington watches, and how fabulous they are as a gift to ourselves! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed a few posts by me, of this fabulous classic black Daniel Wellington watch. It is a great gift to give to someone, but even better gift to give to ourselves!

The watch has a chic silhouette, and the watch face is easy to read. I love the rose gold paired with black my watch. Rose gold is the “IT” metallic hue right now, yet it is still classic; making this watch both fashionable and timeless. Love that!

As you can see, I have been wearing it quite often. This is my current go-to outfit. The over-sized sweater paired with my Pierce bag is not only cozy, but extremely comfortable. Love that! The Daniel Wellington watch just makes it all the more perfect for daily wear.

If you are seeking the perfect gift for yourself after the holidays, or a fabulous new watch for the new year, then definitely check out Daniel Wellington watches! I have teamed up with Daniel Wellington, so if you visit DanielWellington.com, you can save an additional 15% off your purchase using coupon code BAYAREA. They carry both men’s and women’s watches, so there is something for everyone!

Also, if you have been wondering how to style an oversize sweater this winter season, they look great with flare jeans, skinny jeans, leggings, or over a pencil skirt with boots. If you want to pair it with a pencil skirt, look for a pencil skirt which hits at the knees, or just below the knees.

I wore my oversize sweater with flare jeans, and my Daniel Wellington watch to meet my friend Laura from Have Need Want for brunch earlier this month. We took a walk on a path which ran along the water in Capitola. It was so quaint and relaxing! You can see the scenery in the photos above, isn’t it pretty!
