Snow Day


TNA Griffith parka and Wilfred Haus scarf, Aritzia. Hyperwarm tights, Nike. Short duck boots, Sorel. Socks, Madewell.

The warmer temps and drought of the past few years has meant little to no snow falling on the mountains surrounding Los Angeles. So, after last week's back-to-back rainstorms, I jumped at the chance to check out the first good snow season in years. We drove up past Mountain High resort in the San Gabriel mountains and found a beautiful picnic area covered in two feet of snow. It was all fresh and untouched and so serene, with little kids all bundled up and sledding around like a scene from a Christmas movie. So much fun!

Also exciting was getting the chance to test out the parka I purchased recently from Aritzia. When it comes to dressing for cold weather, I can't help but trust Canadian brands for obvious reasons. This jacket is a 3-in-1, with an inner jacket that can be removed or worn alone in warmer weather. I figured a transitional jacket would be more useful in the Southern California climate than a warmer parka. It surpassed my expectations; well-made with great construction details, and water-resistant as well. For temperatures in the 30s, it held up really well. One of my best clothing purchases so far this winter!

  12. Your photos are fantastic! You make a snow day look so chic and fun. How nice that you can drive up to the top of a mountain for some snow but then get to leave it behind when you get home. I wish we could do that here in Chicago. I love your parka and your scarf. Perfect snow day look!
