Hi friends! Welcome to the new year! It seems crazy that it is already January. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting that downward slide of disliking my winter clothes and just want to wear Lilly Pulitzer dresses and sandals. Alas, the 8 million degrees below zero we have been having (ok, highs have been around 0 degrees F – but still!) means that isn’t happening anytime soon. So I’m reaching for fun items like this colorful faux fur vest. Seriously swoon worthy. I spotted it a few months ago on SheIn and really wanted it, but couldn’t quite justify it. But the clothing fairy must of been looking out for me because SheIn reached out to me to pick out a couple items. You better believe I jumped for joy when I saw this pretty colorful faux fur vest was an option!
Since this colorful faux fur vest is such a statement piece, I went basic with the rest of the outfit. Gotta let this beauty shine! Jeans and OTK boots go so well with it, but I’ve also worn the vest with black leggings and a black top for a more streamlined (and work friendly!) look. Oh, if you are in the market for a good turtleneck sweater (without the choking that comes with most turtlenecks) check out this one from Old Navy. It has that perfect fit. I’m wearing a Tall for a bit more length for reference.
The day I wore this to work, I had to run to Target after. I had not one, but two women stop me and say they loved it. One had to have a full length conversation about my glasses and where I got them and then she had to ask where I work that I can wear this sort of awesomeness (thats what I’m going to go with at least!). The other lady came down a row from the main thoroughfare to tell me she loved my vest. Not gonna lie, my self-esteem was riding high that day 🙂
Do you wear statement pieces in the winter to brighten things up?
