I Live In LA & These Are The Items That’ll Keep You Cool This Winter

Living in Los Angeles I’ve grown accustomed to clear sunny skies and perfect temperatures most of the year; however that doesn’t stop us from wanting the full winter experience. Rarely dropping below 60 degrees, when given a chance, we don’t hesitate to either bring out our flyest cold weather clothes or freeze in our year-round attire. If you’re a last-minute shopper like me or could just use a seasonal wardrobe update, there’s still time for a winter refresh.


Stocking up on fashionable yet practical clothing items that I can wear year after year is necessary to keep my closet from overflowing with bulky items I’ll hardly ever wear. From quilted pants to chunky boots, it's finally time to put on a few of my favorite winter purchases that can keep up with not only the weather but my busy everyday life. Scroll to find the key fashion items to embrace the semi-cold LA weather in style this season.

1. Quilted Pants

These olive green vintage quilted liner pants are perfect for a winter in LA and beyond. Extremely comfortable, stylish, and uniquely designed, they can be worn throughout a range of temperatures this season. For cool sunny days, pair with a cropped top, oversized blazer, and platform Doc Marten boots for the ultimate weekender look.

My favorite footwear trend, chunky soles are here to stay throughout the remainder of winter 2022. Pairing these two-toned platform boots with gray leggings and a cropped quilted jacket, I’m serving my best ski-inspired look. No matter your location, you’ll get plenty of wear rain or shine.

3. Puffer Coat

The puffer coat (or puffer jacket) remains one of the most popular outerwear trends, even for LA girls. While it is hardly ever cold enough to wear without overheating, for a cozy and casual look, this winter classic makes sweatpants and sneakers look so good. Wearing my go-to sweats 90% of the time, I love adding this extra layer for a more stylish approach.

Jason and Elise Robinson’s union is a reminder that kind people still get their happily ever after. The pair had their first date in October of 2021 and tied the knot on June 15, 2024. Both of them have dedicated their lives to celebrating and supporting Black culture so it was only fitting they get married in what's considered the Black Hollywood of America during the Juneteenth celebration weekend. From the florists to Elise and Jason's gown and suit designers to the table signage and so much more, everything was Black-owned. It's no wonder their love for Black culture was the jumping-off point for their love story.

Something that I will forever back until the end of time is essential oils. One reason is that they are all-natural (essential oils are basicallyplant extracts). Another reason is that the (proven) holistic health benefits that come with using them (consistently) aredamn near endless. And lawd, don’t even get me started on how wonderful many of them smell — and how they tend to last longer than a lot of the perfumes and colognes that are out there. Definitely, for as long as essential oils are in existence, I’ll be singing their praises.
