I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect brown AND black faux fur vest. I see them everywhere, but I’m sort of particular about how I want mine to look. Of course the ones I love are SUPER (like a little absurdly) expensive (exhibit A), so the challenge has been trying to find one that’s a relatively reasonable price AND doesn’t look TOO faux (and some of them are just awful!). Anyone feel the same way?!

Anyway, I found this black one last week and LOVE it. (but warning, this one is not cheap – I think it’s $135) But I linked up several different (very similar) options across different price points below! Have you found one? Spill your secrets with us ;)

So…I actually wore this outfit “out” while I was in Baton Rouge working on a project with my mom last week. I had a super long work day ahead (full of meetings) and it was a friday – so naturally, I wore tennis shoes (I know. unfair. #sorryNOTsorry #PerksOfWorkingForMom).

I ended up working longer than expected and had to rush to dinner (date night!) and the night’s festivities straight from the office. I grabbed a pair of the Scheffy heels (yes, I wear the sample size), took off my puffer vest and wore this little number for the night. It was obviously thrown together, but I LOVE those kinds of looks! They always end up being my favorites ;)

I’ve got a thing for monochromatic looks. Pairing like/similar colors is not only easy, but it’s chic. The trick is doing it right. In my experience, I’ve found that pairing like colors with different textures usually always works. It’s when you try and pair similar colors in similar textures/fabrics where you run into issues – because then it’s almost like you need to have the same EXACT color/material (like a matching set or something…)

I think ice blue is a great neutral and anytime I see something I like in the hue, I’ll usually jump on it. It’s different than your typical neutrals, yet still subtle enough to go with just as much as your other neutral pieces. It’s interesting, unexpected and sleek – I love it (especially ice blue suede!) Oh, and I LOVE it with leather. What do you think?!

Since moving into my new (rental, of course) home here in Dallas, I haven’t gotten the chance to show you any snaps around the house. I’ve been traveling so much that I haven’t been home long enough to actually get moved in. I know that sounds crazy, but I’m just really good at putting it off (ha!). I finally got the chance last weekend to straighten up enough to take a few detail shots of my bedroom and the living room.

What do you think? I’m obsessed with my bedding from Crane and Canopy – it’s seriously SO soft and so comfortable ;) The only downside is that it’s harder to get out of bed in the morning!

I’m getting the most out of these somewhat-chilly-but-still-a-little-warm days and wearing my skirts, shorts, and dresses as much as I can. Like I mentioned in yesterday’s (and friday’s!) post, I can’t get enough of this booties-and-bare-legs combo. And as I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, I’m addicted to plaid this season. Seriously though, I feel like I reach for plaid in my closet almost every day! It’s easy, cute and can be ‘styled’ SO many ways – easy to dress up and even easier to dress down too!

I’m headed to Charlotte today to visit my friend Caitlin (SO excited!) for a few days and then we’re both headed to Columbia on Thursday for the private shopping event (get the details here!) over at the new Nordstrom Rack!

Can you ever have too many chunky knit sweaters? I love this one from Nasty Gal (don’t judge the site by it’s name – I’m telling you! It’s good!) because it’s a little cropped. Sometimes I’d rather not have my cozy sweaters both chunky AND Long…what if I want to wear a cute belt or not look so lax?! Either way, I love this one – and the price too!

And I’m so excited! The Kristen wedge booties (probably my favorite DK booties EVARRRR) are finally available at last call! They’re seriously the best – you NEED them in black!! But really though – just trust me on this one ;)

I mentioned on Friday how much I was loving this combo? (the whole bare legs and bootie thing?!) What’re you’re thoughts? Tell me I’m not crazy – YOU would wear (slash kind of like) this combo too….right?! I’m telling you, I think it’s great for this awk transition time of year! And this chunky sweater?! PERFECTION. It would also be super cute with a striped shirt (just bought this one!) peeking out through the sleeves!
