FUR-nishing Touches

If one were to break down my typical outfit piece by piece they would be quick to realize that the core of many of my outfits are basic pieces. Much of my wardrobe consists of denim, menswear inspired trousers, drop-crotch pants, joggers and leather leggings and tee shirts. Lots and lots of tee shirts! I am not much of a blouse wearing kinda girl or someone you will find wearing a fitted bodysuit. Don’t get me wrong, I love the look and in my younger days you definitely would find me wearing something along the Beyonce, Single Ladiesย bodysuit look but it’s just not me currently.

I love keeping my basics simple and building on that. I am obsessed with shoes, jackets, furs and accessories! I like to be comfortable and I am a huge fan of taking a simple outfit and making into something more fun, fashionable and most importantly me.

Now that the winter days have finally arrived and we are suddenly smacked in the face with the harsh reality of winter, it is time for me to pull out my fur jackets and vests. I think it revamps an outfit from something boring and ordinary to something extraordinary. Ha ha! I can’t believe I just said that either.

Here are some of my current favs!

However, when outwear becomes part of my outfit and I am in indoors and too hot to wear it, my outfit suddenly becomes a lot less interesting and mundane. That’s why I love incorporating a fur vest into my overall look. This way I can leave home wearing a leather jacket and vest on top and remove the leather jacket indoors and put the vest back on over my outfit to make the look more polished and complete. It’s like wearing a great pair of shoes. I find that whatever I wear with the right pair of shoes can turn the most boring look into something exciting and stylish instantly. A fur always adds a little extra pizzaz to any outfit especially if I keep my outfit simple.

What are your current favorite winter must-haves?

Until next time,

  5. Hello dear!
    Love your vests, the gray ones.
    The pink little fur is so cute . Stay comfy!!!


  6. You are looking stunning in all of these looks. I love all of your fur vests and jackets, they are so chic. And I love how they are the statement piece in all of you looks. Sometimes I really wish that I lived in a cooler climate to experiment more with winter looks. Your style is so inspiring.




  7. Your hair is just freaking amazing! It’s so perfectly curled in every single one of your outfits! I’m so jealous! I always have a hard time buying outwear as statement pieces because when I take it off, like you said, my outfit becomes white mundane. But lately I’ve been more interested in longer statement coats. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a black fur vest too, but I’d like to try something more colorful… Unfortunately I’m a bit too scared ^^’ Not all the fur jackets match well with my body shape!

  10. You’re so right. Fur is everything. I actually need to invest in more coats especially now that I’m living somewhere where costs are necessary! Love all of these looks

  14. What a fab tip- The idea of layering a vest over a jacket is genius! I’d never even had to think about that here in SoCal!

  15. The ante fur movement seems to have quieted its roar lately,so those of us you find glamour in fur can proclaim it’s beauty! Love this post the fur jackets & vests are great .Love the whole look of the pink jacket.
    Thanks Jandrew
