Layered Fur



Ever since I wore this (faux) fur vest layered over a blazer (here), it's a combination that has been on regular repeat - especially since our weather is still warm enough to not require a heavy coat (this might be my favorite winter yet!). Admittedly, I have been wearing my hair in a ponytail an embarrassing amount lately (I blame the busyness of the holidays), so I was happy to find this sleek accessory to use on days when I'm craving a more polished look.







What I'm wearing:
Victoria's Secret blouse (here), c/o Chicnova sweater (here), Forever 21 blazer (here), M.S.S.P. vest (via eBay; similar), Levi's jeans (on sale here), Zara bag (here), ALDO booties (similar splurge), c/o Christina M. Boutique necklace (here), gifted Etsy ring (here), Target sunnies (similar), Lips: Maybelline Are You Red-dy

I really like this multi-layered look. Is it comfortable to have so many layers on? I'd like to try it, but I tend to feel constricted in layers...

What a polish & fun look! I am addicted to my fur vest - it adds just a whole lot of fun to any outfit.

Hi Lisa,

I don't find it to be constricting at all - mainly because the bottom two layers are very thin and because I didn't button up the blazer. It's warm but doesn't feel like too much!

I love the gold hair thing! It really steps it up over a plain elastic. Preppy + Fur? Love. Like Serena from GG, just a little bohemian.

Hi Kimberly,

I love the red how it looks on you. Great idea adding the vest over the blazer for an added interest to your outfit.

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday and leaving a very sweet compliment. I love what you've done with your blog and to get mine there someday. :)

Enjoy the holidays with the kids and the family.

PS What foundation do you use? Love the color.

XO

I love the layering of a fur vest and yours is the perfect thickness that it doesn't add bulk! You look posh and you rock a ponytail girl!

Hi Sofia,

I use Arbonne Line Defiance Foundation, which I love because it melts into your skin without looking cakey - my color is 3N. :)

what perfect layering - the black on black makes it subtle enough so that the whole thing just looks seamless.

Ok. I LOVE the layered look, but everytime I try to pair a collared button-up with a sweater, the button-up either shows through the sweater OR I look like a barrel-chested opera singer (which I am not).

Maybe it's just me. But any advice? Of all the looks in the world, this shouldn't be the one I can't pull off.

P.S. You look gorg. And there's nothing wrong with a pony-tail kind of month.

Love this whole look - the layering is just perfection x

Kimberly said...

Hi Nicole,

There could be a couple of things going on when you tried the layering. Either the shirt you have underneath is too thick or bulky (sometimes this happens with my chambray shirt) and/or the sweater you are putting on top of the shirt is too thin/sheer. In this particular outfit, I went with a very lightweight silk blouse and the sweater is fairly lightweight (though not sheer) too. I hope that helps!

xo,
Kimberly

Adore the vest over a blazer look. Must try this soon. Also loving the pop/peek of color with the blouse under the sweater.

Stylish Petite said...

I love the layers and never thought to layer a fur vest over a blazer! Genius.

Adoring your jeans, they look like BF jeans but I don't think they are right? I am on the hunt for a pair or possibly thinking of making my own:)

Kimberly said...

Annie,

No, they aren't really boyfriend jeans - just skinny jeans that I bought one size too big...my favorite trick so they aren't too baggy-looking! :)

Kimberly

Hi Juliette,

We use a Canon Rebel T3 DSLR with a prime lens that we purchased separately. Definitely a worthy investment!
