Spreading the Love Around...

Since we have had a mild winter here in Chicago, some of my heavier pieces in my wardrobe have been feeling jealous...neglected.  But, as it is pretty cold here today, I decided to show those pieces some love!

For instance...this fur collared sweater vest.  The few times I have styled this vest it has been over a button up shirt.  Today, I wanted to try something different...




Sweater, T-neck-Gap/Skirt-Tessuto/ Jewelry-BR, Urban Outfitters, Madewell/Boots-OTBT via Lori's

I wasn't 100% sure how this outfit was going to turn out.  I had the vest and the turtle neck one, and had no idea what to wear on the bottom.  So, I decided this springy skirt might juxtapose the fur sweater vest.  Before I could change my mind, Alex started screaming because he could not find his shoes and Jack was screaming because Alex was screaming...so I grabbed some jewelry...found Alex's shoes and ran out the door...boys in tow!

I really like this! The fur vest looks cute with the long skirt. And you have an awesome collection of boots.

I like how it turned out with the long skirt, too. Our weather is pretty mild right now, too. Only rainy. Boo. :)

That skirt is SO MUCH FUN. I love it! And of course anything with a touch of fur is perfect!

XOXO, Lindsey

The furry vest is really great, and I suppose that is one nice thing about the sudden drop in temps - more fur!

I like the vest over the turtleneck. It makes the outfit dressier!

Ha, that sounds like my kind of morning! lol I love how it turned out! I especially like the tough boots with the frilly skirt!

I'd say things turned out pretty fantastic, actually. I love the flowiness of the skirt with the edginess of the boots/vest. Perfect!
