Winter Coat Guide: 36 Styles I’m Loving This Season

One of the best things about moving back to the East Coast is being able to purchase cold weather clothing and accessories and actually wear them more than a few times each year. When I lived in L.A. I’d vacation here for a few weeks in December. Immediately upon returning to the California sunshine and winters of 75 degrees or warmer my cold weather clothing got pushed to the back of my closet.

The Must-Have Items at The Top of Gina's Wish List!

Ever since I was a child, I would have trouble sleeping on Christmas Eve. I’d toss and turn all night in anticipation of what was to come.
