Pine Knot Trail

Cozy sweater and crochet denim shorts #AEOStyle

Thursday, we headed up for a cabin trip in the mountains with our friends.  Big Bear Lake is one of mine and Thomas’ favorite winter destinations. It’s only three hours away from San Diego and it feels so good to be transported to a snowy wonderland. On Friday, we were lucky enough to have a sunny morning with perfect weather for hiking so we set out to explore Pine Knot Trail.

Breezy Layers

So far, winter in San Diego has just been a cool breeze with lows of 50 degrees leaving me reaching for light sweaters. I purchased this Caslon Open Knit Sweater from Nordstrom last winter and it has been tucked away in my closet for a quite a while now. Its lack of warmth previously posed a challenge in the past but this season it couldn’t be more fitting for the weather. I decided to give it new life by layering a Free People Trapeze Slip Dress underneath it and topping it off with a simple gold necklace from Forever 21. A pair of James Jeans Twiggy Skinny Jeans and vegan faux-leather lace-up boots finished the look. I spotted these Mossimo Khalea Combat Boots at Target and was thrilled to see they are composed of 100% man made materials and they are incredibly similar to the Steve Madden Troopa Boots, which are not vegan-friendly. Finding cute, budget-friendly vegan boots can be challenging, but I’ve found that affordable stores like Target or even ModCloth tend to have quite a few cruelty-free options! These looked so much like genuine leather, I had to check the inner label twice to be sure they weren’t leather!
