Country Girl

I have been loving all the faux fur pieces I've seen in stores lately and I was really planning on purchasing a jacket of some sort.  But, after trying several on, I realized that when you have broad shoulders, this is not the most flattering style (I looked like a linebacker).  So, I decided on a vest instead.  I love that this one has an open front and a cropped shape...the longer ones I found seemed to add too much bulk for me. 

I think it is such a fun piece, even though my husband laughed at me when I put this on & my daughter declared it my "DoodleBop" vest (you other moms will get this reference).  Still, I love layering different textures in this way - see how I paired silk, faux fur, denim & leather?  I'm already picturing the other items I can wear this with...like a cream-colored turtleneck & the skirt worn here.

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 vest (here), Sunday in Brooklyn top, Style & Co. jeans, Colin Stuart boots, Forever 21 necklace (here), Kenneth Cole ring, Bracelets: Banana Republic & Forever 21 (here), Dockers Aviators (here), Nails: Essie Over the Edge (here)

Love the combo of all the different textures and materials... and colors! This vest is different from so many in stores with it being cropped and I think it might be my favorite style. Looks great and those boots are fabulous!
