I’ve been on the lookout for a cozy vest option that will be warmer than my puffer vest yet not as thick as my faux fur vest (currently loving/wearing this one). Needless to say, I knew this faux shearling vest was the answer the second I saw it. Unlike most of the shearling vests on the market right now, this one is not super thick, which allows for additional layering (either on top or underneath). Additionally, since it isn’t super bulky, it doesn’t steal all the attention of an outfit and (like I said) allows for layering and flexibility when putting together outfits (hopefully that makes sense?).
I paired it with a simple black turtleneck because I loved the contrast – but I’m also just super partial to black and brown and cream together (probably one of my favorite combos…ever).
There’s something so dreamy about wearing whites and creams (especially together) in the winter time. It’s definitely a statement maker, as most people stick to darker hues, BUT I think it’s a GOOD one for sure. It’s crisp and clean and classic in all the right ways. In fact, a winter white outfit might just be one of my favorite looks/themes of the season – it’s just SO chic!
And the whole no white after labor day rule? Come on now. I think we can all agree that that rule is SOoOo old news! (and SO lame if you ask me!) I guess I kind of get the no-white-rule when it comes to shoes. But even still, any rule can be broken when it’s broken well. My tip for wearing whites during winter is to mix similar hues of neutral – maybe just have one key piece that’s stark white and then mix it with other obviously-wintery items. I love wearing winter white with riding boots (like these!) paired with black and white stripes or a chunky cream (or grey) knit.
For this outfit, I paired it with a cozy cream sweater and nude pumps for a night time, going-out look. I actually wore this look to a La Crema Pinot Noir event last week :)
I was writing the date down yesterday morning and realized…wow okay so we are halfway through November. Like, wait WHAT?! Where did 2015 go?! #crazyness
Anyway, here I am again in yet another plaid blanket scarfand swing dress. Yes I love them (both!) very much if you can’t tell. But can you blame me?!
Both swing dresses and blanket scarves are just so stinkin’ easy – separately and when worn together. This combo might be one of my favorite looks ever (aside from an oversized sweater and skinnies – you know that’s my go-to and comfort zone).
And since it was a little bit rainy in Dallas when I wore this outfit, I threw on my hunter boots (SUCH a staple!). I didn’t think I’d be able to wear my red ones as much I do, but they actually match much more than you’d think. I’m actually contemplating getting the high-gloss ones…because they’re just SO pretty and SO fall. Don’t you think?!
