Faux Fur Vest


In my last post HERE I mentioned that I found a dress and top in the same pattern and was wondering if I should keep both. Today I decided to try out the dress to see what I think about it.
It was a chilly October day so I paired it with a long fur vest, a recent purchase from H&M. I love the boho vibe of this look. I love fur vests - they are warm and cozy and a great layering piece for the fall/winter season.There are a million different ways you can sport this style, it's definitely a piece you can have fun with and dress up or down. If you want to take the safe route pair it with fur-trimmed boots and skinny jeans or some olive cargos and booties and you will be on trend whatever the occasion.

I can't tell you how much I love the pattern on this dress. The material is slightly a little heavier than the top. The gold buttons and ruffles gives this dress such a chic look. Whereas the top was silkier in material and had buttons on the back. I think I may end up keeping them both!
And here is my little prince charming offering me a little weed flower.
 They may be weed but they are the most beautiful flowers I have ever received - I will take them home and press them inside my textbooks ;)

  18. omg you are just too cute! I loved pressing flowers into books when I was little. I was always surprised when I would find some in random volumes of encyclopedias! hahaha.

    I really like this dress. the print is just gorgeous and I love its length! I never thought much of faux fur vests, but you look great in it! and it works with the dress really well!
