I had no idea just how wear-able a black faux fur vest would be until I finally got one. This one suits me well because I love the longer length (I like the coverage around Christmas time!) & because it has pockets. Now the hood... ya I wasn't a fan but I must admit it came in handy... (keep in mind I found it on eBay!). As you saw here, I paired it with a tunic & leather leggings. For me it's just a versatile statement piece that will continue to be a closet staple. 

John is finally home & I am so happy! There's no better Christmas present than being able to have some time with him after the chaos of his rotations. 
Hope you all are having a great week - thank you for reading!

  10. I am a huge fan of fur, something about this little addition to the simplest outfit makes it all the more better. This would be a great outfit for a casual xmas lunch with friends!


  11. Love the vest! Fur vests are my favorite especially when it gets chilly out!


  12. That top picture is STUNNING! I was outfit inspired by a post you did weeks ago. My mom and I went shopping and although I didn't want to wear a button down, I wore a long sleeved white shirt under my fur vest with jeans and tall brown boots. LOVE!

  13. Hooded vests are my favorite! Mine is hooded too, and it's super warm! P.S. Those boots are great, I love a great black leather boot especially over the knee!

  14. I love the hood on yours! I have a great brown fur vest but I've been looking for a longer one in black or cream. They just dress up anything so easily :)
