Scenes From a SoCal Winter Weekend

It's been 80 degrees for 3 days and I can only say Mother Nature must be feeling very, very sorry for that deep freeze of a summer last year.  I swear we didn't see more than 4 or 5 truly nice days (as evidenced here, here and here).  As a result I do believe I may have lost me mind just a tad bit- getting up prior to 10am two days in a row, out of the house from sun up 'til sundown, and not even so much as washing my hair much less combing it (hipsters are actually smiling at me as we cross paths...i've crossed into the hipster acceptability zone!!).  Here are just some of the wonderfully warm things we've seen this weekend.


and last, but most definitely not least...
 Ridiculous red pony hair coat at the flea market
- and by ridiculous I mean amazing (but not my size-wah).

Tomorrow morning I might just get up and go to the beach when the Chef goes surfing.  And you might just hear shrieks of terror akin to a bat seeing the sun...those will be coming from my white legs.

Happy Monday everyone!

I'm loving the warm weather in LA - it's making me incredible happy and such a huge difference from the freezing cold in New York.

How gorgeous - I'm jealous of the amazing weather you've been having! Although it was mid 60's and sunny in SF this weekend - can't complain!

I don't think I could be more jealous of you if I tried. Lucky lucky lady! I would nearly KILL to have even 60 degree weather right now! Enjoy it, my dear! xoxo

The weather sounds absolutely divine! SF was arguably quite warm given the weather in the rest of the country, but it's still sweater weather!

Carrie, I'm SO jealous of your weather. Granted, I gained ten degrees in my favor when I headed from home down to school, but it's still snowing. And pretty freaking cold to boot. Looks like you had a fab weekend, though!

That building that says you are beautiful is so neat. I am kind of wanting to take a trip just to see that building!

TheChambrayCountess said...

Haha, I totally agree- self-tanner is a must! The pics look awesome! And too bad about the pony hair coat, that would have factored into some fab ensembles!

Courtney Erin said...

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Looks like a pretty cool coat! I would love some of your warm weather please. I only like the cold if we have snow and since we DON'T I want the sun back!!

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

Wow, you're not kidding that it's been warm down there. And glad you seem to be feeling better?

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Gotta love SoCal! My parents were married in early January (27 years ago) and my mom prepared for a winter wedding. SoCal busted out temps like we saw this weekend. I never believed her that it was really THAT hot. Now I do lol!

Indie.Tea said...

There's something kind of fun about not combing your hair (although I do have to wash it)...
It was sunny here in NorCal, but really chilly. I envy the warmth you're enjoying.

Kayla said...

I'm so jealous of that gorgeous weather.

LyddieGal said...

If I woke tomorrow to 80° weather, I don't think I'd know what to do with myself. I hope you don't get your warm weather taken away just as soon as you got it, and you can keep enjoying your 'summer'!
