As leaves fade from vibrant green to warm tones of yellow, orange and red, as the weather changes from bright, blue skies and beaming sunshine to cool breezes and lower temperatures, and as sun-kissed skin fades and our wardrobes welcome jackets, sweaters and pants, December brings about different kinds of warm feelings. Winter heralds its own celebration and style, whether snuggling up by fireplaces, smelling the aroma of peppermint lattes softly floating through the air, or layering on warm clothing each day. Families gather for the holidays, enjoying each other’s company while feasting on rich foods and toasty wines with hints of oak. As warm spirits and memories come together, San Diego offers dining and fireside lounging to further embrace the cozy atmosphere December brings. With glowing fire pits, gorgeous ocean views and welcoming, homey wooden decor, take a look at these inviting San Diego restaurants. Not only are the toasty environments and seasonal vibes something to be excited about, but so are the stylish threads that fill your closet. Need some inspiration for your seasonal look? Well, we’ve got you covered in the fashion department. Now let’s get our December on!


Beach visits are constant here in Southern California, whether it’s summer, fall, winter or spring. Although going to the beach is mostly considered a summertime activity, the winter brings about a different ocean beauty with crisp breezes and, as always, the familiar salty air. Cannonball is the perfect place to enjoy a gorgeous ocean view while keeping toasty and warm at the fire pits on the rooftop. With big, white, round couches circling around the fire pit, you are sure to stay warm as you peer through the glass bordering the deck. While enjoying the easy flow and sound of the ocean waves and breeze with the crisp, cool air brushing against your skin, you and your loved ones can stay comfortably warm around the fire, sharing plates of Japanese dishes and sushi. Once full, lie back on the nautical-themed cushions built into the couch. Cannonball perfectly harmonizes winter with the ever-so-popular love of the beach.

With this perfect combination of winter and the SoCal beach, you can stay warm and beach-friendly in a maxi dress paired with a leather jacket. Look for maxi dresses with wintertime hues—golden yellows, greens and dark blues. Floral maxi dresses embody summer nostalgia while keeping you covered and layered with extra warmth. Look for leather jackets in lighter shades to balance out the winter, beachy look. For him, forget about the restricting, neck-hugging ways of the classic turtleneck and go for a mock turtleneck. His neck will be both warm and free from constraint. Dark colors will have him matching the deep, midnight blue shadows of the sky. As for jeans, try a metallic corduroy look—the velvety feel screams winter. Also a must for any fashion statement is a leather jacket, a staple for both him and you.

The Patio on Goldfinch

Baby, it’s cold outside, so let’s take the dining inside and defrost the extra “brrrrr” at The Patio on Goldfinch’s indoor fire pit. With white tile walls, a burning fire pit and small desert accents, this eatery is welcoming and homey. Inside you’ll see wooden wall panels, wooden seating areas and a stocked bar with a ladder to reach high shelves like you might see at a library. With an eclectic menu and decadent array of cheeses to choose from, which are made in house you will be guaranteed a full belly in a cozy setting.

For a casual spot like The Patio on Goldfinch, rocking jeans and a nice top makes for the perfect outfit. With blues and floral tops paired with dark denim pants and leather jackets, you’ll be winter warm and style ready. Add edge to your look with tops made from rabbit fur or by stepping out in leather bottoms. Guys can keep it James Dean classy with a V-neck shirt, denim jeans and a jacket. Classic looks are great for any season and look great on every man. With these looks you’ll be picture perfect while keeping warm.
