Living in Southern California sure has its perks! By comparison to the rest of the country, it's not too cold out yet, even as the new year is on the horizon. For this reason I took the liberty of wearing a non-traditional type of denim for the season by pairing cut-off shorts with knitted black tights. It was a fashion risk, but once the outfit was on, I felt good about it. The hat I threw on to run errands and meet friends for coffee.
