Faux Fur Vest


I hope you are having a wonderful week so far! I love wearing my pink faux fur vest. It’s a great layering piece anytime I need to make an outfit a little more complex. I’ve shared before, that I think some of the best outfits are a little complex. For example, instead of just wearing a t-shirt and jeans you may want to add a third piece (jacket, scarf, or vest) to make the outfit complex. Adding that third piece is also great way to make your look more aesthetically pleasing. The look below started out as just a plaid shirt dress and grey jeans but by adding the faux fur vest, it not only gave this look a little extra pop but it also helps me show off my personal style as well.

Saturday Night

I was celebrating a birthday of a friend last night and we headed uptown…which usually means lots of walking so I made sure to wear my wedges. I loved this top from Forever21. I can’t wait to dress it down with a pair of jeans in the fall.

All about the Beach

I LOVE the beach. I grew up in New York and Florida so the beach was never too far away from us. Now in the Carolinas, it’s quite a drive so I enjoy it whenever we do go.
