The weather is finally getting cooler in South Florida making it a bit easier to get dressed in the morning, and just in time to bring in the holiday spirit. A few of you asked for it, and so here you have it -- my take on winter fashion (in Florida, anyway).

For me, it's all about layering essential pieces and pairing some "winter-like" accessories (whether it's a scarf, boots, a beanie, etc.) to make me feel like there's actually something called winter where I live. Having lived in Florida for several years now, I've got the layering thing down to a science. By midday, when it gets hot again, I can easily peel off layers and still look put together.

And since I know you're dying to know, I'm sippin' on a gingerbread latte from Starbucks (yum!).
