It’s cold in Houston. Well, it’s no longer 80 degrees, at least. However, we are by no means as chilly as our northern brethren, which is why a faux fur vest is the perfect Houston winter layer. These suckers insulate for a brisk day without the commitment of a huge coat. And this one from H&M ($34.95) can be dressed up or down for all your holiday goings-on.

Friday: A Night with the Rockettes 

The Rockettes are returning to Houston after eight years with the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. In other words, you don’t have to can-can to New York see the iconic show, just to the Hobby Center. So get your Franco Sarto Brinn booties downtown and even make it an event with dinner before and drinks after.

Sunday: Brunch at Tiny Boxwood’s/Christmas shopping at the galleria

The weekend comes to a close, and what better way to celebrate than a white wine mojito at this garden-party restaurant. If you at all like sweets, grab a chocolate cookie on your way out. It’ll fit perfectly in your Charming Charlie crossbody bag as your stomp through the crowds at the Galleria, hunting for that perfect gift for your mom. Hey, why not get her a faux fur vest?

In keeping with the faux-animal-print of your vest, pair it with a pair of snakeskin heels. It’ll be a wild combination. Skip the handbag and opt for a fun, old-fashioned tin lunch box to get you ready for the show.
