It feels a little crazy busting out the white pants when it's still winter, but when the weather is 74 degrees in January I think the rules have to change a bit. Since I grew up in cold snowy winters and was used to bundling up in layers from November to March, it's strange for me to get used to dressing for a California winter. But I do love that one day I can be in wellies and a raincoat and the next day in a swimsuit at the beach . . . not a bad trade off. So here you have it - white pants mixed into my winter wardrobe and all of these items are easy staples in my closet that get used time and time again when I'm out and about all day long. Layering is the key here.
