Faux Fur Vest

I love a good faux fur vest.  So when we woke up to our first snow in the SLC yesterday morning, a cozy vest was the first thing the I reached for.  For me, they are a winter staple.  Plus, this outfit would be another great option for your Thanksgiving day dinner!dsc_2830 dsc_2861dsc_2883 dsc_2853 dsc_2832dsc_2897 dsc_2852 dsc_2876 dsc_2885

Neutrals

Olive and nude is always a favorite color combo of mine.  And this olive tunic is so soft and cozy (and under $40!), it’s pretty much my favorite purchase of the Fall season.  I’m also loving this faux suede vest.  It is just one of those pieces that I will be able to get a ton of wear out of. And you know I always love (and recommend) pieces that are a good investment!

P.S.  I am going to take a little mini-break from my social media/blog for the next couple of days.  I am participating in a fast with my church, Antioch SLC, and have opted to give up social media and tv for the next couple of days to spend some time focusing on my walk with God.  But I will be back to my regular posting on Wednesday evening, so be sure to check back then!!!

 

 

Tunic

I love a good tunic paired back to skinny jeans and a staple pair of pumps.  It’s definitely a go-to look for me.  And when I’m on the hunt for a new tunic, Free People is always a brand that I look to first.  They have some of the best tops around, in my opinion.  Particularly if you are looking for something flowy and comfortable for summer.

Tunic

Confession: I ordered this “top” thinking that it was a dress.  But when it arrived, it was much too short, and the slit was way too high (yikes!) for me to wear it as a dress, let alone in public.  Ha! But I loved the print and fabric so much (it is a nice, sturdy scuba material), that I stewed over how to wear it for a while, not wanting to return it.  And I finally decided that it could indeed be worn be worn as a top.  In the end, while I still wish it was a dress, I am loving how it looks with leggings, and can’t wait to wear it again when the temperature drops with a cute blazer or leather jacket.

Have you guys ever had a similar experience ordering online before?DSC_2469DSC_2467DSC_2507DSC_2470DSC_2483DSC_2474DSC_2506DSC_2485DSC_2509

Tunic: Shein c/o (I would suggest ordering once size up) | Leggings: JCrew (I SWEAR by these, AND they’re on sale for under $55!!) | Cuff: Forever21 (old) love this | Ring: House of Harlow | Sunnies: Karen Walker (rent them for FREE for one month with code: ALLDOLLEDUP at checkout, and then just $24/month after that for as many months as you choose!) | Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim | Heels: Vince Camuto (old), craving these

Hope you are all having a great week.  I am traveling again for meetings this week.  And I have to tell you, the past few weeks have been so packed full of travel for me that I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that tomorrow marks the first day of October!  Where on earth did September go?  Cray cray!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

My Vest Accessory

If you follow this blog, then you know how obsessed I have been with my denim vest over the span of the last year. And to be totally honest, I don’t see my love affair with denim vests dying out anytime soon. But when I was in H&M recently and spotted this long, lean, surplus vest complete with a little sparkle, I knew my favorite denim version might finally have met its match.

Watercolors

It’s no secret I love prints of all colors, patterns, and variations. They are such a fun and easy way to add interest to any outfit. Plus, with the recent acceptability to mix prints of all kinds, they lend to creating endless outfit combinations in your closet.

One of my favorite places to find a good print is at H&M. Since specific patterns don’t tend to stay on trend for very long periods of time, I don’t typically like to invest in them, but rather prefer to pick up inexpensive and fun prints that I can play with for a time and easily let go when they have run their course. Such is the case with the below top. While I have lots of great prints in my closet, I don’t have any watercolor prints, so knew it was a perfect addition to my closet the moment I saw it. I love how feminine this top is and that it is one of those great hybrids that I can wear for work or play. Plus, it’s just long enough that I can tie it at the waist if I so desire!

In addition to being pretty, and feminine, and versatile, I also love that this top is a very unique multi-color ombre-essentially it goes with just about everything.  So when you are out shopping for prints, try to look for something similar to this top that will not only allow you to be creative, but will also function as an easy piece to accessorize and pair with multiple items in your closet.

Happy Wednesday!
