Faux Fur Vest

Hello!

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.

How to Layer with a Vest

Yesterday I was invited to attend a Bridal Shower. I love celebrating the accomplishments of my friends. I was able to catch up with some friends I hadn’t seen in a while and I realized how awesome it was to hear goals and accomplishments being met. I also realized that I am blessed with great friends. Growing up, we moved around a lot and because of that I didn’t have a lot of long lasting friendships. It’s been easy for me to keep people at a distance simply because that’s what I’ve been used to. As a result of that, I never developed long lasting friends until college. We may not talk to each other or see each other regularly but I know that there’s a lot of substance and value in the friendships that I have with them.

Unfortunately, we were talking so much that we forgot to take pictures with one another. I did take a few pictures of my outfit before I left. I love this vest; it keeps me warm and makes a bold statement. It’s a really good example of how you can make a personal statement with layers. Here’s what I wore:

Jeans: Forever21

Denim Jumpsuit

Wearing a jumpsuit is so comfortable for me because I’m still in the healing process. Who am I kidding though? If I wasn’t, I would still love wearing jumpsuits. Especially this denim one. It isn’t restricting at all and I can’t wait to wear it on the Spring!

I wanted to have some fun with it so I added this faux pink vest with it. I like a lot of my fall and winter wear to be a little oversized so if this vest looks huge on me…it’s because it is lol. Fashion doesn’t have to be boring. You should dress outside of your comfort zone every now and then.

Blush and Sequins

When I saw this sheer dress I instantly thought about the glam that came with the 1940s. The sequins and blush color really make this dress stand out. I put a black slip under it (although) I can’t wait to pair it with other colored slips) and then put this burgundy collared shirt with it. This trench coat from Zara brought it all together.
