Well the first time - Oh my I can't beeeeelieve I am linking to that blog post - I fell for faux fur, I had no idea the longevity it would have.  And now look at me, my entire household has exclaimed I look like an Ewok and I love it.

I'm here to say, just do it.  It's so fun.  And not over the top, and you will find yourself so soft, warm, and fuzzy.  

I'd love to hear an argument on why you can't do faux fur.  Unless you just don't want to.  Can't argue with that.  Like my friend who doesn't like nuts with her chocolate.  What in the world.  

Or my other friend who thinks she can't wear leopard print, yet is one of the hippest gals I know.  Doesn't look good.  Not a clue on that one.

Or that certain someone who won't eat any fruit.  Like any.  I can't even.

Back to the point.  A great way to start is just a vest, a jacket might make you feel too gorilla chic, I get it.  But again my love for vests, this is easy.  It's versatile, you can wear with errrrthing.  Sweaters, t-shirts, even pair it over a jean jacket.  With jeans, dresses, maxi skirts.  Leggings and boots, track pants, even a great pair of sweats.

This outfit makes me so happy.  Something about buffalo check has got me this season.  These culottes are the most comfortable jeans I currently own.  I love the high-waist style, and of course the cut, the undone hem keeps them modern.  I have even worn them with flats.  Yes you can...just you wait till summertime sandals and tanks.  And now they are on sale!

  1. Faux fur is amazing. I learned the hard way and washed my favorite faux fur vest. So now I'm on a hunt for a high collared brown or white and tan faux fur vest. I love the link to your retired post. Seems like you are just going for it and getting more creative and exciting. You rock Mrs Kirsty P!
