These coats and this music

With seven days left in Argentina, I’ve been gently reminding myself that shorts will not always be appropriate December attire. In fact, I’ll likely have to ditch the tube tops, sandals, and sun-tan while I’m at it – but until I board that mammoth of a flying machine on December 16, aint nobody raining on my skimpy-clothes-wearing parade.

Though, when I do find myself  in weather that doesn’t require keeping Copper-tone 45 in my purse within the next week, I already know that I’m going to be wishing I had one, or all of these coats from Brics‘ most recent collection. Each one is just so very, very right.

To accompany these winter wears, here’s a little winter-ish mix I put together of songs I’ve been playing non stop around here. Tranquil with a few pops of funk and spice – only the best kind of December music, right? Warning: this mix has nothing to do with eggnog, reindeer, weather outside being frightful, and (hopefully) no where will you hear the words Holly, Jolly, or Christmas. Not that I’m opposed to sleighride jingles, this just isn’t that kind of jam.
