It’s raining in Los Angeles, and I love it! I mean, I LOVE it!

(Bare with me – we don’t get this often enough)

With New Year’s behind us and the holiday season a distant memory at this point, it’s common that by now we’re all back to our daily hustle. There’s little time for rest, days off, or dare I say a vacation, in our near future. So right now, let’s enjoy the rain.  Let’s take it in, stay in, and just enjoy it.

I’ve rounded up some cozy favorites for a night in, and some hot, moody picks for a date night out.

Starting with that hot date…

I’m in love with these velvet tanks (burgundy here / grey here). Not too hot, but too hot, if you know what I mean! Pair it with a distressed charcoal/black jean and a knee-high boot, and you’re set. FYI: Yes, these jeans are from Target, yes I bought them, and yes I love them. Another great Target option is the velvet lace trim cami from the Who What Wear collection (yes, I bought this too)! It runs big, so just buy one size smaller than normal.

For outerwear, I’ve picked either a black bomber jacket or a go-to biker. Both are easy and not too heavy. No need for a hood, let your date hold the umbrella (wink!). Accessorize with this dainty gold choker, a simple clutch, and add a matte berry lip. Done!

Staying in?

We all need a soft sweater (or two, or three, or even four) in our lives and a warm throw to keep couch-side. These sweaters from Club Monaco and TopShop are soft, easy, and casual, but polished enough should a cute guest show up at your door.  Add some chunky socks and you’re pretty much wearing heaven head-to-toe.

Want to relax? And I mean really relax? Mix up some Ghiradelli hot chocolate with a splash of Bailey’s Irish Cream to your liking (or add a splash of hot chocolate to your Bailey’s Irish Cream – it’s simply perspective. Who’s paying attention?). If you’re more of a wine person, you can mix up this red wine hot chocolate recipe found on immaeatthat.com. Genius! Or skip the hot chocolate all together and just drink the wine. Lots of options here!

Whether you’re staying in or going out, enjoy the rain, enjoy the cold – just enjoy.

Cheers!
