Texture Play


When it comes to my winter wardrobe, sometimes I feel slightly uninspired.  I quickly tire of all the layers & dark colors and would so much rather put together spring looks (as evidenced by several of my recent posts).  But when I saw this photo of Olivia Palermo, I knew it was just what I needed to break out of my rut.  Mixing leather & fur together creates the perfect blend of texture and warmth for our still-cold & occasional snowy weather.  (Yes, I am wearing my fur vest again - sorry for the repitition.  But, even I have been surprised by the versatility of this piece!)




What I'm wearing:
Gap blouse (also worn with fur here), Forever 21 skirt (similar), Fabulous on a Dime vest c/o (on sale here), BCBG necklace & pumps, Urban Expressions clutch (here), Forever 21 bracelet

I absolutely LOVE this look. That blouse is so pretty! Since I bought the JCP blouse, I'm feeling like I need more drapey soft blouses.

I really love this! I have a longer-ish fur vest like this and I always feel it looks funny. I'm definitely going to try a look like this though! Thanks!

NOw this is awesome...love how you paired that vest with the fun shoes!

Favourite items deserve to be worn over and over again so I think it's great that you're showing us several different styles with the fur vest. Olivia P is a good source of fashion inspiration, we share a love of Reiss but she does get colours perfect for her skin tone too. I love your skirt here, I think I might invest in a leather style skirt myself for fall, so I will be checking out your similar versions.
