I’ve always felt kinda silly for wanting a faux fur vest. For whatever reason, I had thought up this image of me wearing one with leggings while carrying my dog around in a giant handbag (FYI: I have never done this). However, when I saw this grey faux fur number cinched with a metallic skinny belt at Banana Republic, I went for it. (P.S. They’re having a 40% off sale right now). First of all, the color is unusual (it has a hint of blue), but it’s neutral enough to wear with anything – and simply adds dimension and texture to outfits. Secondly, it’s great for layering (I wore it under my J.Crew duffle coat this weekend and stayed SUPER warm). These are the things you consider when you live in a freezing cold city such as Boston.
To keep the look casual, I wore a blue Zara top to bring out the blue tones in the fur and a pair of distressed skinny jeans (no, I didn’t rip the knee myself). The finishing touch to keep me comfortable for a long day of errands: my black Rag & Bone Harrow booties. These had been on my wish list for ages – and, needless to say, I was beyond excited to score this pair on sale. (If you’re ordering for yourself, definitely get a full size up.)
