Winter Style…San Diego’s Version

Winter in most locations can be defined as cold and blustery sometimes stifling your dressing style. Cool, crisp mornings leading into warm and sunny afternoons define the typical winter day in San Diego; so our winter-style is usually the “art of layering.”

With average daily highs of 66 degrees and lows of 50, we start off with coverage and by afternoon, jackets are off! When visiting San Diego in the winter months, you might want to pack some t-shirts, tunics, sweaters, leggings, jeans and a jacket. Don’t forget to throw in a few fabulous scarves and sunglasses!

Most shopping in San Diego will offer you a variety of layering options. One of San Diego’s newest additions, Brandy Melville, offers a variety of loose-fitting tees, soft angora sweaters, jeans and maxi skirts. Women of every age will find something here to add to their wardrobe while not breaking the bank.

Another great place with great layering options is Max Studio in the Fashion Valley Shopping Center. This is a great location to find some versatile sleek-and-chic monochromatic layering pieces like tunics, leggings, sweaters, sunglasses and jackets. They also sell my go-to pant called the Ponti Boot-Cut Pant (great for travel)!

Make sure you stop by the seaside community of Encinitas to shop at Mog + Rue. This ultra-fab boutique carries both established and independent designers showcasing classic and casual yet fashion forward ensembles. The owner is a widely published fashion and beauty writer who has a keen eye on the definition of the San Diego laid-back-chic look.

With so many layering options to purchase, my top three items to pick up before you leave would be a pair of fabulous sunglasses, jeans (we have an abundance of choices) and an ultra-chic maxi skirt. All three will prepare you perfectly for Spring!

About Sandra

Being a local Fashion Stylist I love sharing and connecting people with the latest "boutiques'" and "treasures" that San Diego has to offer. Whether with fashion, dining, or art I enjoy letting others in on new places that define San Diego. I adore dining out with my husband while enjoying a nice glass of wine at the Red Velvet Wine Bar or the roasted jalapeño blackberry margarita from Barrio Star. We love just chilling with our daughter and hanging out with close friends playing board games. Family, fashion, business, music, good food, wine, art, dark chocolate, dogs and laughter pretty much defines me! What would you do on your ideal San Diego day? Wake up, read the newspaper and WWD while loading up on coffee. Head down to Liberty Station to take a class at The Bar Method. Hit some tennis balls with my hubby and daughter. Have a relaxing lunch at either C Level, Bencotto, Cucina Urbana, Barrio Star or Tower 23 with family. End with a ride on Sunset Cliffs, stop to watch the sunset, then home sweet home! What is your favorite San Diego Outdoor activity? Riding bikes, tennis, walking along the bay, and of course shopping, it is a sport, right? Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and wine? Any homemade pasta and vino! Latest music purchases on my ipod are... Muse, Depeche Mode, 'Til Tuesday, One Republic, Pink, Christina Perri, The Smiths, Rihanna, Snow Patrol, Astrud Gilberto Visit Sandra at www.mymariposastyle.com
