With the onset of Winter weather (not to mention nor'easters) comes the need to hunker down, stay inside, and take a chill pill. We're feeling especially inspired by Free People's snowy, rustic November lookbook. The slouchy sweaters, cozy leggings and kneesocks, and dreamy, skin-tickling slip dresses were just made to be lounged in — and it calls to mind the same kind of easy, laid-back layering tricks we saw on the runway at Rag & Bone's Fall '12 show, with their oversize striped blanket coats and nomadic leather-paneled pants. Furthermore, we're setting the scene with some more cold-weather essentials, like a chunky knit cardigan, soul-warming tunes, and a rich, delicious bottle of red wine. Are you feeling all warm and toasty yet?
