Out and about in Beverly Hills

36 total views

So maybe it’s a bit hokey, but we thought it would be fun to take our “staycation” in Beverly Hills. We figured there would be plentiful holiday decorations, lots of great restaurants within walking distance, and it was just a few miles from home. Here are a couple of my casual staycation outfits…

Staycation outfit 1: casual sightseeing day…

Even though we weren’t going far, and luggage wasn’t really an issue, I still decided to go with a small and mostly neutral capsule to keep things simple. I’ll share the entire thing later this week (I packed at the last minute, so didn’t have a chance to photograph). For four days/nights, I brought 3 pants, 3 sweaters, 1 long-sleeve tee, 2 jackets, 1 coat, 2 pairs ankle boots, 1 pair sneakers. And scarves, of course!

I’ve been wearing this leopard print scarf from BLACK almost constantly since we arrived. It’s a cashmere-silk blend, so it’s warm but soft and lightweight, comfortable indoors & out. These scarves make fabulous gifts, but be sure to order *no later than December 10* for guaranteed holiday delivery!

Staycation outfit 2: out to dinner

Wore this to dinner last night. It’s been getting quite chilly at night, so I’m glad I brought a warmer coat as well as the short jackets.

I’m wearing 6 Petite in the coat, XS in the sweater, and size 28 in the corduroy jeans. Some of you reported that you received an error message when trying to purchase this sweater over the weekend. The glitch on the website has now been fixed, so you should be able to add to your basket without a problem. And all sizes (XXS-XXXL) still seem to be available!

The bag is kind of an “off” color, but I like that it breaks up the tonal look a bit. It’s one of those colors (“Banana” in my Spring palette) that plays like a color with neutrals, but can look neutral when worn with a more colorful outfit. It’s also surprisingly light for a chain handle bag!
