Hey everyone! Happy Friday! This sweater vest has been so fun to wear! It reminds me of women from the 40’s and 50’s wearing a fur stole with their tailored dresses and little pill box hats. I bought this vest to add some glamour to my wardrobe and find myself stroking the fur because it’s so soft. Stroking your collar like a pet probably kills the idea of glamour! Oh well! I can’t help it!
Anyway, you’ve seen me wear it before (like here and here) but I wanted to try to wear it with the fur collar but casually. I’ve seen a lot of faux fur vests this fall and winter where the fur is longer and more shaggy (like here) and I am not drawn to them. I think they’re a quick trend that adds bulk and reminds me of wearing a muppet. This vest gives me the faux fur but it’s done in a more classic way so I’m betting it will not go out of style before I’ve petted it to death! And it’s 50% off now!
This is the first time this winter I’ve shown these boots. They’re several years old but I still love how soft they are and they’re holding up really well. If you are a size 7 or 9 here they are at about 1/3 what I paid for them. They’re also available in black here.
I’m finishing off this outfit with this pretty pink satchel. This bag was not a big outlay of money but I know I need to add more color to my handbag collection so I’m going to be mixing up investment bags that will last for a long time with less expensive bags that I realize may only last a year or two.
Where are we taking these pictures? This is the Cranbrook Art Museum in suburban Detroit. It was fifty seven degrees yesterday when we took these and they have beautiful gardens so we did a bit of walking. Since then we’ve added about two inches of snow and have dipped down to twenty two degrees. Sigh. Michigan.
Have a great weekend everyone!
